Hi All,

I am new to the site but not to travelling. I am 42 and have been travelling for 20 years both professionally and for personal.
I have lived in two places for over a year outside of my homeland (USA), India and Hong Kong.
My favorite way to travel is lost somewhere new on a motorcycle.
I am about to embark on a good trip for 2012.

April 11th starts the trip
West Coast USA including:
-Los Angeles
-Arizona
-Fresno
-San Francisco
-Portland
-Bend
-Seattle
-Roger Water doing the Wall album
Then May 23rd onto Japan including:
-Tokyo
-Kanawaza
-Other sights we want to see
Then onto:
-Hong Kong
-China
-Tibet
-Nepal
-Thailand
-and for the bulk of this trip, India.

I am excited.
We have no particular time to return to the 'real world.'
My last good vacation was in 2008 when I spent a month in Thailand and 35 days motorcycling all of Laos.
This trip should be very good.
Plus I've fallen in love and my GF of 3 years is with me.
Anyway, that's my story for now.
Cheers,
Phil

Hi Phil, and welcome to Travellerspoint. Sounds like an awesome trip indeed!! Are you doing the US stretch on a motorbike? Is your girlfriend in one of those sidecarts? That's always struck me as a lot of fun :)

Doing the west coast in a rental car. We were planning on getting up into the Canadian rockies but time may prevent this. We needed the warmth of a car for the mountains. Plus my bike needs a new radiator and is in Florida. Motorcycling the west is awesome & I highly recommend it. I have motorcycled almost every road in California and done trips up to Canada.
Cheers,
Phil
