Not currently planning on signing on with an organization, just going to do it solo, raising money for charity on my own terms. My embryonic plans entail flying from my native US to the UK around early June 2014, buying a Honda c90, driving it to Ulaan Bataar, then flying back Stateside in late August. Below is a tentative route:

Tentative route

I am open to any and all feedback regarding this idea, especially regarding the bike, as I've zero experience with the c90 and almost no mechanical knowledge. Specifically, how will it handle high altitudes?

I'm definitely open to gaining a travel buddy, preferably one with mechanical know-how (but if not no worries), as long as he/she isn't a jerk
I'm into traveling on the cheap and in the spirit of adventure, so I'll be camping most nights.

Thanks for any responses,
