Try a long trip or two in the US and work out all of your methods and equipment before tackling third world crap holes by motorcycle. The bike I rode to work today has had eleven foreign countries pass under it's drain plug, and I owned an R80G/S when I lived in Australia and toured much of that country by motorcycle. Btw, Aussie is tough work to tour. Most of it is undeveloped and you never, ever under any circumstances pass by fuel. Sometimes you run out of fuel even when you don't pass a fuel stop, petrol bowsers (their term) are so far apart in the Outback.
You want some experience touring a halfway civilized country so you have places to bail out and adequate cell phone coverage so you can dig yourself out of unexpected situations in places that aren't so dangerous before you try your luck on some of the third world crap holes, Russia included and maybe especially, that lie between Europe and India.
I had both North America and Europe under my belt before I tried my hand touring Australia and found out the first day that nothing I knew or thought I knew about touring prepared me for trying to ride a motorcycle across Australia. The distances, the heat, unavailability of water for long distances, no shade anywhere, 240 kms between gas stops, can't ride at night because of the big critters on the road (you do not want to hit an emu on a motorcycle). Take that and add additional layers of corrupt officials, bandits, and maybe even people who want you dead simply because of the color of your skin or the name of the country on your passport, and gas that may or may not be good, water that will make you sick and food that may or may not kill you. You might want to practice your long distance touring skills in a safer place first. Just saying ...........
I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.
