This is a bit dangerous - no? I mean to other roadusers, if you fall asleep and plough into them. You might raise more money safely by working for 24 hrs non stop and give that cash to the charity. 7 x the minimum wage (say) of £6.00 for 24 hours is about £1000. There's no or bike trip of course (allowing more cash for your cause) and you'd be free of the need to ask others for money, yet giving your charity a handy sum. Keep us up to date with your progress?

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.
