[QUOTE=kristofer;22609894]So many good points! Just want to chime in and share my thoughts!



Thanks Kristofer! Tons of great comments. Bikes in Australia are WAY more expensive unfortunately. So is everything else for that matter... You can definitely get cheaper bikes if you start a trip in the U.S, and I totally agree about having a bike you're not so attached to (and that you're not paying off!!) I remember dropping a nice, shiny new bike, and I was pretty bummed about it for a couple of days. Then I was kind of relieved. The shine and polish was finally marred, and I was free to go have some real fun!
