Well done guys - always nice to hear people when people make it safely.

I've been looking at your website and was impressed with the layout of the back of your truck - how did it work out in the field?

I'm going to change around my 110 so would be interested to hear of your experiences...

Been following your website for some time as we are following in your footsteps down the west coast (currently in Yaounde getting visas). All the best for the wedding.

Well done and good luck

Rob, Ally, (and Brian),

well done on completing the trip, said before somewhere else here that I liked the site, but more to the point does your Dad want a job prepping trucks for trips!?

Good luck to the pair of you for the Big day - make it special, hopefully you only do it once!!!

Is the Landy coming home or do you have other plans?

All the best

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.
