I bought these in February:



Pharao Luxor II. Ventilated, very sturdy, several pockest and hopefully not too hot. I thought about getting kevlar jeans and a leather jacket but eventually went with new pants for my old jacket. Maybe next time, when replacing both the jacket and the pants, I'll go with something less clowny

I have an old pair of the HG Rallye LC pants, they are pretty versatile, zip out waterproof lining for cooler weather and they have a little zip open mesh flap above the knee for warmer weather.
Hip and knee protectors and leather on the arse and knees.
I think HG stuff is sized small TBH

"Clowny frowny" ...I think they look sharp . I bought my wife an earlier version of Pharao gear. So far it held up pretty good, including hot (Florida) and cold n' rainy (Alaska) riding.

True. If you're sitting in a cafe by the St Lawrence eating a sugar dusted croissant and taking a first sip from an espresso and find the coffee burns your upper lip, Geoff ain't the kinda guy who's gonna step over and hug you.

A tip however: If you're in a distant land and riding 175m from the back of an armoured SUV and you see Geoff sitting on the tailgate taking the safety of his Minimi, then I suggest you brake...quickly.

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.
