Sooo... this is gonna sound.. a bit out there, but I'd like for some to put some serious thought into this, as I am just going off an IDEA, and have no idea of the Logistics, or anything for that matter, apart from a drunken query on a Website that has sorta escalated... Here's the Idea! A TOTAL Newb, who's never ridden anything with a Clutch, riding around Australia, Capital Cities being the markers. I got the idea from a Magazine, a LONG time ago, where a guy took a Postie around the same route. Hard to imagine, but it really stuck in my head (at least 10 years ago, Australasian POST) and from memory, was a great example of the relability and ruggedness of the machine. What Bike I want to use: I don't really want to mention brand or anything: suffice to say it's a Chinese-made Road bike, 150cc, Liquid Cooled and the company itself hasn't baulked at the initial enquiry: quite the contrary, they've taken real interest and see it as a Challenge! What I need: Some basic advice! Have I bitten off more then I can chew? I'm pretty much reknown for my Stamina, and ability to keep focused on even "mundane" tasks for an extrodinary amount of time, and I learn pretty fast, or so I have been told repeatedly. Is it even POSSIBLE to do this, on a Learner License (Going through all states) and are all Capitals Linked with Tarred roads/Highways? (Obviously not Hobart/Tasmainia: I am sticking to the mainland) If not going Sightseeing, just pure riding as often as possible, is 3 months a reasonable timeframe? I have read a couple round Australia Bike rides online... but nothing about anything under a 650 >.< If your a company/PR person: would this even interest you? It seems kinda risky and might not payoff: question is; would the chance of it success and the publicity that could generate outwiegh that risk? What THEY want: atm, they just asking for a Basic Timetable, This is the main thing I am having issues coming up with: for all the research on Round the Country Trips, nothing much is on smaller bikes: bigger Enduros or massive Crusiers seem to be the main choice... being a Leaner: at least in NSW I am restricted to 80KPH, so I assume I am gonna be later in the from 1 month to 4 months regularly mentioned when it comes to trips of the same idea. what they would have to contribute:, Basically the Bike (They can put all the Advertisements they want on it) and parts/repairs. Safety Gear is going to be open for other advertisment spots and such. Fuel and Insurance is another matter... nothing planned for that yet, but figuring I don't have to worry about that sort of stuff until near last thing. how would I promote the Company: Beside the advertisements on the bike, I'll be starting a Blog, and keeing a Video Diary, which, in turn will be put together for a Book. Yes, I have some friends in the industry, so I got support in that area, there are a few around, but nothing... quite like this idea that I have been able to find, anyways. and what Media would I be focusing on. Basically, at the start, it'll be the Blog, Facebook and Twitter. Once trip is completed and I put the draft together for an Editor to have a look at to see if it up to the standard, I'll have an Idea of where to push, in terms of marketing, But I figure I'll generate some interest along the way with something or other, in terms of Media... they bloody everywhere, after all, lol If your still here after all that, Thanks for your time, and looking forward to any and all helpful posts!
