Had to laugh at video one. Nice shots, pity the pistes never look as hard in a video as when you're tottering on the edge of a drop in real life!

Pictures and videos never bring the scary feeling we had at the time. But they do make us laugh afterwards.

When we came across a hard section sometimes we would be too busy getting across rather than to think about pictures and videos. Had some very tough times out in Morocco.

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.
