The roughly 1,600-kilometre travel between Perth and Sydney is the difficult portion. There are no proper human habitations and no cellphone connectivity over this 1,600 km area. Ramabai will travel alone on this expedition, stopping occasionally in the wild and living in a tent by herself.

During the course of roughly a year, Ramabai Latpate will travel 80,000 kilometres on her superbike. She isn't afraid to ride alone, and she doesn't consider the bad weather she might encounter while navigating challenging territories like steep mountains and snow-covered dirt roads.

Bharat ki Beti will ride her superbike for 80,000 kilometres for roughly a year. She will go to Australia, New Zealand, France, New York, Morocco, Dubai and more. 

This courageous woman revealed that the cost of her 365-day solo bike ride is probably going to be more than one crore. She claimed that in addition to selling her SUV and gold jewellery to cover the initial costs, she had already used up all of her money. 

Ramabai has made a crowdfunding request for Rs 1 per person as the entire expense is probably going to exceed that amount. She has contacted both corporate communities and elected officials about this. Eknath Shinde, the chief minister of Maharashtra, and State Minister Girish Mahajan have commended Ramabai for her incredible solo bike ride and have each given her one rupee in support of her titanic effort.
