The motorbike tour – prep

We’ve been itching to be off again for months now but it has taken a bit to get organised.

First we needed a bike… that was the easy part really. After viewing a couple, this one came up in Plymouth and seemed to fit the bill – Jake was soon enough the proud owner of a Kawasaki ZR-7.

Next was gear and bags – this slowly accumulated through some good eBay purchases. We’re proud to say very nearly all was second hand and in excellent, near new condition.

Then, in the days before we left was the actual packing – the hardest part I think. It took a couple trial runs to get the panniers packed and strapped onto the bike. A slow process now but I’m sure after doing it a few times we’ll speed up! (I hope so anyway!!)

Finally, we downloaded maps, checked addresses and booked our ferry ticket.

Tomorrow, we’re off!
