Overland Journal: Fall Issue

The Fall Issue has shipped today! Thought some of you would like to see the contents.

This issue includes our most comprehensive outdoor gear test to-date. Graham Jackson, a scientist by trade, tested 12 water filters and purifiers. Over $20,000 in tests were performed from laboratory samples. One major brand failed! Based on our research, this is the most comprehensive and decisive filter/purifier test ever conducted.

The issue also includes a test of available soft luggage, including Ortlieb, Wolfman, PacSafe, Andy Strapz and Dirt Bagz. This test resulted in our first Editors Choice and Value Award going to the same product.

There is also a crazy story about an expedition through Pakistan in a TucTuc and the wrap-up of our F650GS project bike.

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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
