I have an F650 in Central America, not exactly what you asked but its US registered and I have dual US/EU citizenship so it would be an easy swap and you could ride all of Mexico.

Hi Bobby, are you looking for a time-swap or a permanent ownership swap? Thanks.

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.
