I'm reminded of a passage in the introduction from my old Haynes manual for my own 1958 Bantam:

One of the more remarkable feats of the "Bantam" that is now almost forgotten is the 14,000 mile journey through Canada, the United States and Mexico by Peggy Iris-Thomas, who left England in 1951 with her year-old D1 model, her dog "Matelot" and an amazing amount of luggage and camping equipment. Her adventures on this diminutive machine led to the publication of her book "A Ride in the Sun" and a place in history for one example of what was once Britain's best selling motor cycle.

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.
