I am planning on doing a cross-Eurasia trip in about 4 months and am a photographer. I have to keep a li-ion battery charged while being without access to power. What are my options on my bike? Can I charge that kind of battery with a hand-crank, is there some sort of system i can hook up to the bike to generate power, or do I got solar? Thank you kindly.

Lots of threads/discussion about generator hubs used for charging batteries. Carry extra batteries.

I would recommend that you buy a couple of extra Li-Ion Batteries for your camera.
If it's a DSLR, you'll probably get 400-500 shots per battery life.
You can pick up Generics for just about any camera from B & H Photo in NYC.
Even if it's a P&S camera, there are still Generic batteries available.
I have a Pentax K20D and when I travel, I carry three extra batteries with me.
