Long-distance motorcycle trip prep

I have a friend who just told me he's interested in doing a long-distance motorcycle trip in the coming year. Now that is some of the best news I have heard in all of 2012!

So here's a list of links and resources from my own experiences. Hope this helps someone. 

  • Join the conversation of Horizons Unlimited ( )
  • Purchase a copy of the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook (affiliate link)
  • Closer to the date, purchase the Spot Communicator and sign up for their service. Start a blog about the adventure!
  • More to come ...
