Motorcycle Travellers Tales content
This ex UK police motorcyclist (doesn't make him a bad person) is continuing in his attempt to avoid maturity. He's been NFA for some time now and is resisting the temptation to settle down and cut the grass on a weekly basis. He is instead seeking to carry on riding whilst health wealth and happiness continues. He holds the HorizonsUnlimited site entirely responsible. Currently doing a lap of India on India's first trailbike - The mighty 150cc Hero Impulse.
With my clock ticking toward 30, I was lying in bed staring at the ceiling when an idea was born: "I'm going to travel the world. On a motorcycle!" I should mention, I didn't own a bike. Actually, I’d never traveled by one. In fact, I didn't even know how to ride. But those were minor details that could easily be fixed.
Five months later I rode off for two years, returning after five and a half. I logged over 111,000 miles, experienced 75 countries, all seven continents, made countless friends and survived a multitude of escapades. In the end, I parked myself in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Well, there’s really not much to say about us. We are a “normal” German - Australian couple, we have 2 “kids” (30 and 31) and we are married for 32 years.
20 year ago we moved to Australia and we realized that the world has more to offer then just work. Currently we are fulfilling our dream by travelling by motorcycle since April '12
Ahh, I nearly forgot, we both started motorbike riding in Australia and joined the Ulysses club. Joining the Ulysses Club was, in my opinion, one of the best things that we ever did (sorry guys and girls under 40!).
During the numerous AGMs that we attended, we stumbled across a company (Ferris Wheels) that offered a guided motorbike tour to the highest motorable road in the world , Khardung La in India. We thought this would be the right adventure for our 25th wedding anniversary. But, as things turned out we didn’t make it for our 25th wedding anniversary. When we got the promotional DVD for this trip we decided that we could spend our money on better things than killing ourselves. So we didn’t do any special adventure on our wedding anniversary and the year went by.
At Christmas we got a DVD from a friend about a motorbike adventure (Long way round), and after seeing Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman struggling in Mongolia, we thought we surely could do a guided tour through India. I mean, by comparison, how bad could it be, really?
We booked the trip a couple of days later.
Why tell you this?
Well, it was the beginning of a live changing experience. Coming back from India we had a different perspective on life. We both changed jobs within a couple of month and have been a bit restless ever since.
So when my 50th birthday arrived, a friend of my put an idea in my head……. the Pan American Highway.See More
