    Seven days have past since I showed an interest & I can't stop thinking about this trip.

    Although I have GPS mapping for Europe I don't have any USA coverage - I've gone out & bought a USA atlas.

    What do I have to do to get on the confimed list?

    Probably confirming will get you on it.

    Joking apart I have the same thoughts. Jeez I would love to commit to this

    Questions
    Bike hire in the USA may be cheaper, easier & less hassle in the long run, I presume breakdown cover and full insurance would be included.

    Bike hire can be very expensive and I`m guessing for this trip you`ll be stung for $4000 + for a GS or equivalent. When you rent, the whole breakdown and insurance is covered but it doesn`t help when you are miles from anywhere with no phone signal and the nearest dealer is 500 miles away

    I always rent when I`m over for a couple of weeks and it`s OK for that. Try www.eaglerider.com or www.dubbelju.com and read all the small print if you want to check the prices. I use them and they are as good as they get.

    Pat of the fun of a trip like this is doing the mileage on your own bike. It`s also a lot cheaper

    At the moment, I have enough people as I`m trying to keep the numbers down to 8 bikes but I`ll put you on the list and keep you in the loop. I`m sure there will be changes along the way.

    I`m also thinking I`ll do another one if I can get enough interest which I`m sure there will be.

    Please pm me all your details i.e bike, phone number etc

    You're not bringing a 1200 Doc are you?
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.
