The bike...

This is the bike that I will be using for this trip. It is a 1982 BMW R80ST.
I have spent the last 18 months, (on and off) and a few thousand pound, getting the bike ready for this trip but am sure it is now in good reliable shape (which is more than can be said for me), for the task in hand, only time and miles will tell.
I chose this bike because of it's simple mechanics, meaning that it can be fixed relatively easily with the need for plugging into a computer to see what's wrong. As I have just about re-built this bike myself, I know it fairly well and how it all goes together which is a plus point when travelling alone.
