OK, so I know bugger all about motorbikes. I'm planning in the future to do a (more than one) cross-country expedition on a bike. I think it will be quite fun. So, I have three questions: What sort of bikes should I be looking towards? I know there's the BMW ones (example 1, example 2, example 3, etc.), and they were my first thought, but what other models and brands should I look at. How much stuff can I expect to carry? Doing this sort of thing in a 4WD allows a lot of room for a lot of kit. The bike can't carry as much. I'll be getting those saddle bags to go on there, but how much can I expect to get in them? How many changes of clothes? A tent? Food/water? And should I anticipate wearing a pack? What is fuel milage like on these sorts of bikes? Thanks for any feedback.
