Not sure how long your trip be but it would be nice if I can catch up with you if you are still about in Alaska. I will be arriving Nelson tomorrow (18 June) and after sorting bike I want to ride towards the Great Lakes first before making a u-turn towards Alaska.
In any case you may like to watch another bloke from my country who will be riding to Alaska from Vancouver sometime mid next month. He and partner will be riding a Malaysian registered BMW GS 1200.
Safe ride and hope we could meet.

My brother Ken and I will be leaving Minnesota on June 23th and riding to Prudhoe Bay. It appears that we will be traveling to the same areas. Ken is riding a copper colored Wee Strom and me on a Red R1200GS Adventure.
Hope to meet up with you somewhere on the road.

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.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
