Ever asked yourself how many km a day you can do on a motorcycle? How much the fuel will cost? What temperatures you can expect? Find it out here
This are obviously numbers that hugely depending on your travel stile, but this might give you an idea of what to expect.
On the bike
First off, while traveling on the motorcycle.
Total days 368
Total KM 42’214.4
Avg KM per day 115
Amount of days driven 190
Avg KM per day driven 223
This means, I roughly driven only every other day. This was a bit surprising, but I think this is mostly due to a long break in Laos as well as Bangkok where I spent Christmas as well as New Year. Additionally, the wait for the bike while in Cargo did always take a long time.
Longest time on the bike in one day 10h 30min Somewhere in New Zealand
Most KM in one day 492 Kazakhstan
Max speed 144 km/h German Highway
The actual max speed was much higher, but my tracker only tracks every 10 minutes, so “max speed” is more accurately “maximum average speed during 10 minutes”. I know I did more than 144 km/h on the German highway (no speed limits).
Max height 4’701.12m China
Min temperature while driving -7.5°C China
Max temperature while driving 39°C Australia
The temperature in Dubai was a lot higher (44°C), but I didn’t have a chance to drive around there. And 39° is already nearly too warm to drive around in with all the motorcycle gear.
Lowest fuel price 0.42 USD/l Kazakhstan
Average fuel price 1.25 USD/l
Highest fuel price 2.33 USD/l New Zealand
3 sets of tires
2 sets of rear brake pads
I’m still surprised that I didn’t need to replace my front brake pads, I’m still carrying around my spare ones from back home.
Some other stats I found, more of a general nature.
Photos taken 4’384
Videos taken 1’241
Storage for pictures / videos 926 GB
Total Storage 2.14 TB
I have some map data, backups from my notebook, general copies of important documents, music collection and more on my external storage as well, that’s why I needed so much space.
