Hey all, I know there are other posts about riding across america, but I couldnt find the answers to my questions in those posts, so i thought id start my own and see what i can garner. I'm currently trying to make a pipe dream a reality: to fly to america, buy a motorbike and ride it across the country, maybe this time next year. Maybe it's unrealistic (like i said, pipe dream), but ideally I'd love to spend 3-4 months riding from East (somewhere around New York) to South (Texas) to West (San Francisco). I currently don't have a motorbike licence in Australia, but have ridden dirtbikes/motorcross for years, so am comfortable riding a motorbike. Would it be essential that i get a motorbike licence and get some experience riding on the roads in Australia first, maybe do my time on my Learners Permit first? Can I just go across with an Australian motorbike licence and just get a motorbike and start riding? I'm thinking of buying a bike second hand somewhere in the East then either sell it at the end, or perhaps ship it back to Aus. Any ideas on the practicalities of either of these options? Anything else I need to take into consideration? Thanks for reading!
