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 such as this one (18 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

hi my name is frank this is my first post on this site so excuse my lack of knowlage of how it all works i am from ireland and last year i bought a klr 650 in seattle and rode to prudhoe alaska and back through the rockies to seattle some 8000 mls the dealer was good enough to store the bike for me .i am returning in july 08 to tour through midwest and wounder if anyone can help me with storage of my bike some where between denver or san diego untill i return next year when i hope to return to continue my journey to south america any help would be very much appreciated
If it helps, I have a home in Yuma, Arizona--about 180 miles east of San Diego, but same approx. latitude (just on the US side of the Mexican border) that you are welcome to keep it at. You will have close proximity to 2 border crossings here in town when you want to head south.
Member 'mojorising' is touring the US from the UK, but is based at a relative's home in Phoenix, which might be better for you.
thanks for the offers for storage yuma could ba an option but phoenix may be better as i can get flights back home from there ,yuma simon if your friend in phoenix had space and didnt mind storing my bike that would be fantastic i could then book my flights .thanks to yuma simon , statdawg , dave smith for your help
Email 'mojorising' as he is on tour right now. Obviously, I can't speak for him (or his relative who's home mojo is using as his base) but it would be worth a try.
Yuma is about half way, literally, between Phoenix and San Diego, and there is a Greyhound bus that goes either direction, as well as shuttle vans from Yuma to Phoenix airport (worse case scenario, if you "had" to leave it here). I have other friends in the Phoenix area, too, which might work out for you, again, if Phoenix seems like the place to pick up your journey next year. PM 'mojorising' at any rate.
