About Horizons Unlimited
Do you have an idea that you would like to tour your country - or even the world - from the seat of a motorcycle.
Not sure where to begin, what sort of bike do I need, what gear to take, how to ship the bike?
For the answers to all questions related to overland travel, http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ is a great place to start. Grant and Susan Johnson host the website, they travelled the world on their BMW R80 G/S for 11 years and have a handle on just about everything there is to know about motorcycle travel. The website is a great resource, full of information submitted by fellow travellers. To really kick the bug into high gear, their DVD series 'The Achievable Dream" is great to watch. It's also a grand idea to attend one of the HU events, you can watch presentations from experienced travellers, meet dozens of like-minded souls and check out what other riders have done to make their bike a touring beast.
Here's a shout-out to the website, although it should come with a warning.
View at own risk - you might actually find yourself doing it!
