2,300 miles on a motor bike, registration process?Hi all,
I am going on a little roadtrip. I am going to Europe for a month and a half with USD $3500 to spend. I will be doing this trip solo and I don't really have any plans.
Since this is will be my first time East of the States I decided to explore a little. I am looking into buying a small motor bike(yes I will freeze) in Spain and traveling to Germany and then down to Albania.
Things I have:
Green card (insurance)
International Drivers license
My question is: how do I go about registering the bike after I buy it...(I plan on acquiring one through loquo) I assume I need plates, how might I go about this. I have been doing research but no luck yet.
Have a great day,

1People die of pneumonia as well as car accidents.
But not just so they can say they did it.
Why would you want to do that to yourself?
Don't forget rain slick and blinding roads. And starting out broke on purpose?
Go lrearn something. On trains by talking with other travelers and locals. And have money to eat real meals. Stay healthy.
You came to Europe to enjoy yourself, not nurses or mechanics.

2I don't mean to be sassy. You don't have much time on your trip. On that money you could spend 2.5 or 3 months in Europe.
Eat at mom and pop cafEs in paved alleyways. Where locals pay no tourist prices. You'll be surprised how many lived stateside for years.
Its off the beaten, because most tourists want to be safe and with like minds. i.e. sheeple who don't want to really learn anything.
Avoid the trap of only talking, with your own nationality. (They may just want to say they did it too.)
Why not go home a little wiser than when you left? Talk at length with locals. Use humor. You have friends out there, you haven't met yet. Don't ditch 'em too quick. They are our teachers.
You learn more in the 2nd and 3rd conversation.
I live in Spain. Texas expat. Just a long term traveler.
I asked a local, if he'd go to Granada on his "moto,"
He said,"Oh Hell no. We love trains."
