Getting Started

So I am not sure where to get inspiration for this blog are the two doucumentaries by Ewan McGregor and his friend Charlie Boorman. The first one is called Long Way Round and the second one is called Long Way Down. Even if you are not a motorcycle rider these two documentaries are an amazing way to see and learn about parts of the world you will probably never go let alone go on a bike.

Anyway, I have been riding a motorcycle now for a little over 8 years. That may seem like a long time but infact it's nothing when I read about guys riding for 30/40 years traveling over 100,000 miles. Hopefully one day I will be one of those guys.

I started this blog because I am getting ready for my first major motorcycle trip. My friend Vishal and I are getting ready to ride across Europe from London to the Swiss Alps in two weeks. A lot of preparation and planning has gone into this trip and over the next few days I will be documenting that and then of course blog about our actual trip. I hope some of you will follow us along on our trip.

Next post will talk about our pre-trip planning and problems.
