The up date is more than two week's and less than three. UK to Athens and then on to the Black sea. Riding north. Which will swing you back round to the UK stopping off at Budapest. Leave the 28 May from Dover on either Sea France or P&O.

Any one interested in Joining. Give me a shout.

Up date.

And a plug. I'm doing a blog.
Europe 2011

I hope to start with what go in to make a trip like this. And I'm taking a lap top with me. So I am hoping to up date it as I travel. If you are interested have a look.

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.
