I'll be completing my undergrad this year and decided to take a year off in 2013. I hope to use the time to travel, explore, and experience the world. Therefore I've been toying with the idea of an India to Europe motorcycle trip. I have not researched in depth as yet however this is the general plan, Fly to India. Then travel through Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, and the rest of Western Europe. Has anyone been on a similar trip? Any input would be appreciated. Also what would be more feasible? Shipping a known/trusted bike from Australia to India pnly to ship it back after the trip. Or buying a bike in India, for example a Royal Enfield, and disposing of it later. I don't think I'd be able to sell it whilst in Europe. Regardless would an Enfield survive the 10,000+ km trip? Which bike would be better suited. I'm assuming BMW however could a Japanese bike be trusted? I'd love to hear any thoughts, ideas, suggestions or experiences of similar journeys. Just brainstorming for now.
