Odds are you'll find this is one of the best for any vehicle travelling overland - there is a whole 4 wheels section, and most of the TRAVEL oriented stuff on the rest of the site is applicable to any vehicle, 2 or 4 wheels - and even three!

4 Wheelers are welcome!

I would say it's not 'one of the best' sites, it is THE best site for any overland travel info & advice, there is nothing that comes close!

For info on countries you're travelling to however,
there is - also - lonelyplanet/thorntree

Here is another useful website for the collection. These guys drove from Ireland to OZ via russia and china etc in a car.

-> Roadtrip from Dublin To Sydney <-

Many people do these type of trips in a normal car/van.... 4x4/ bike is always going to be more practical but where is the fun in that.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
