So much to learn, so little time

A quiet evening at home, browsing the "Aerostich" motorcycling accessory catalog. Jotted down ideas for gear. There are a myriad books available full of insights and lessons of the road. How can I possibly learn all I need to know before leaving?

The costs may be the least of my worries. Maybe $10k in food, fuel and lodging costs. Another $5k for maintenance, gear and miscellaneous expenses.

Looked over my new maps of Alaska, Central and South America. Studying the Alaskan highways, it appears it may not be possible to drive all the way to Prudhoe Bay, at the Arctic Ocean's edge. The road is labeled "restricted".
