This was the first ever 'Proper' Trip I did on the little 90. I did it by myself mainly because I couldn't find anyone else that wanted to ride a bike when it was that cold haha.
The plan was to ride from the UK to the south of Germany to go to the Elefantentreffen (Elephant Rally) which is about 1000 miles (1600 KM). From there I would ride down through the Alps to the south of France to go snowboarding at Alpe D'Huez for 5 days which is another 650 miles (1000 KM). Then it was just the return leg which is about 900 miles (1400 KM) home.
From what I'd found on the internet I could expect to find temperatures as low a -20 oC and as I would be sleeping in my tent I decided to buy an Army Surplus Arctic sleeping bag (it's the huge green thing on the back of the bike). Other than that I just took standard camping gear and a 5 litre petrol can in the front basket.
Because I would be needing to cover 300+ miles (500 KM) each day I realised that making lots of stops for fuel wouldn't help matters. This is where I came up with the idea to run a fuel line and hand pump from the fuel can into the fuel tank. This way I could ride for 5-6 hours without stopping.
And apart from one time where I nearly blew up in a huge fire ball in the Czech Republic (more on that later) it worked very well ;)
Other than those modifications, it was just a standard C90 with standard tyres with me sat on top, riding alone and seeing what the limits of the bike and my body are.
