So I am currently 20 years old, and I am planning to become a vagabond when I turn 21. This is not a rash decision, and I'm not talking about backpacking for a summer. I plan on spending years, this is what I want to do with my life. I've been planning this a while, and there is one major decision I'm trying to make and could use some help.
I'm considering using a motorized bicycle for my travels. Something weak enough that I don't have to worry about tags, insurance, licenses, and other things like that. The advantages are fairly obvious, I can consistently move much faster than if I was walking, I could use it to carry my pack so I wouldn't have to, and riding would be fun. But there's also downsides; I wouldn't be able to hitchike and would have some trouble taking trains or buses (potentially slowing down my overall travel), I would be reliant on a machine and if it broke I'd be SOOL, and I would always have to worry about finding somewhere safe to leave it when I go in a building or am spending some time with others so it doesn't get stolen.
What do you guys think? I could use some advice.
