Hello everybody!My name is Markus and I rode 360 degrees around the planet in 80 days.I did that on 3 classic geared 2-stroke-scooters with 7-14hp and 125-177cc.3 Scooters to save money, complications, and time with shipping.I bought one Scooter in the US one year earlier and rode it 10.000 km from the east coast to the west coast to prepare for the world tour.I placed a second scooter in Utrecht in the Netherlands and started with the third scooter in Madrid where I also finished.I rode through 18 countries and sat in the saddle for 27.113 km on 3 continents.I could have finished my trip already on day 76 but I decided I want to drink wine and enjoy good food in Spain and finish the trip like in the book by Jules Verne. I lost several days during breakdowns and waiting for parts. My average was 399 km/day and my longest ride was 690 km/day.My next adventure might be Alaska to Argentina plus Australia as soon as I am able to save enough money to spend 1.5-2 years on an adventure.The funny part is I am not listed on any page for motorbike world circumnavigation or in Wikipedia on the list of long-distance motorcycle riders or in any funny record book. Simply because I rode scooters 😃! hahahaDoes not matter because you don't get a free beer for it! 😉I was never rich and will probably never be - only in experiences and memories ❤!A few statistics for friends of raw numbers and facts: Days : 77+3 on the Hispanovespa Kilometers: 27,113 drivenDaily average: 399 km Longest day 690 km (Durres Albania to Athens Greece)Highest point 12,090 feet (Rocky Mountains) Driving time per day 8-16 hoursCountries: 18Continents: 3Scooters: 3 Cubic centimeters: 124-177Fuel: about 1100lOil: about 24lTires: 12Flights: 4Ferries: 2train ride 1Fuel ran out 2 times despite 7l extra Accidents: 2Injuries: collarbone outIllnesses: Cold and diarrheaLosses: 1 motorcycle jacket, 1 power bank, 1 capAnimal attacks: 4 ( 1 bull and 3 dogs )Near crashes: 1 camel, 1 coyote and a drunk driver 200km from VladivostokDamage: 1 cylinder, 2 clutches, 3 CDIs, 2 tires burst, complete rear brake, 2 spark plugs, 2 spark plug connectors, luggage rack broken, damper worn.Storms: 1 thunderstorm Montenegro, 1 typhoon Siberia, 2 hurricanes Hawai and Virginia, 1 tornado KansasWeight luggage : about 40-50 kgAnd before anyone asks, why so packed? In Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia, the procurement of parts for Vespa and workshops is almost impossible. That's why I had to carry spare parts and tools with me to help myself. Also oil and tires for the complete journey thanks to Motul and Heidenau 🙂. Departure: 06/30/2018 Arrival: 09/17/2018 Madrid -> Madrid EastboundFastest solo trip around the world on a Vespa. 2nd German circumnavigation of the world on a Vespa Costs: around €25,000 including everything and preparation for Coast2Coast USA 2017.

What's the best way to 4x4 swap a car when building a non-conventional off roader? I own a Dodge Caliber, and am planning on turning it into an overlander.Before you answer what I know some of you will...Some things to know, YES I know it's much more practical to go with an off road capable vehicle. Yeah, I know it's cheaper, quicker, and easier. But that's not my question. I prefer the unique, personalized, and one of a kind route. Money and Time isn't a concern to me for this project. I happen to like the dodge caliber, and other hatchbacks, and am inspired on taking on the challenge of transforming it into an overlander.The Dodge Caliber is the same chassis/platform as the Jeep Compass which has an existing 4x4 drive train. Do you think it would be better to swap the components of the compass over? Or some other vehicle? Or would you say completely scratch building the chassis and drive train would be the smarter move? (Again I'm not looking for "Just buy this vehicle instead" answers. I'm aware buying an off-road ready 4x4 is smarter.) ... See MoreSee Less
