the real killer is getting the bike from Magadan to Vancover...which is the most expensive part....also BMW's are expensive for parts and service....

I've read a few times that a $100 a day is a good marker to use..... to cover gas, accom, food, repairs...... obviously you can do it cheaper....but when it comes to getting the bike out of say Korea.... all the options are expensive...

hope this helps

Thanks for this info, I was very curious myself how you managed financially. Very decent of you to reply to his question. We all want to go and it might be more manageable than we think! Cool.

Watching your videos and just downloaded your book "That I May Die Roaming", very inspiring. Cheers from Vancouver Island.
