Well, I'm going that way too ... but am only taking off two weeks from now. You guys have a head start, so it might be hard to meet up. Anyway, never say never, so if you spot a Ural combination with a Belgian plate ... that'll be me.
Take care and have fun.


Best regards,
Dom

We met Ken and Toni yesterday in south-eastern Poland. We spend an interesting evening together. They took part in meeting of polish Africa Twin Community. We didn`t expected them, they didn`t expect to meet us. But the world is so small. Ken and Toni are in good condition and traveling without any problem. They will cross Ukrainian border tommorow (or they have done it today)...

Polish African Twin Community

We are indebted to the Polish ATC. Toni and I were so pleased that we stopped to ask for directions from a group of bikers in Southern Poland. It turned out to be a gathering of the Polish African Twin Community and although we had old BMW's they showed us some great hospitality with free accommodation, dinner and breakfast, plus a bit of local advice.

Thanks guys.

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.
