Real homemade "snow donuts" are few and far between

Halfthrottle, thanks, your very instructional video arrived at just the right time. I needed a new challenge. I will be studying your moves late into the night.

Nice bike too.

Is there an instructional manual that comes with your "snow donut" video? I would pay cash for it, pay all shipping costs and be very grateful.

I though I had seen it all on YouTube when I found the Brazilians doing extended wheelies on their Honda NX400 Falcons ...I am now up to well over 100 meters on mine. But, your "snow donuts" put icing on the cake.

Very well done. The finale was spectacular.

Now that you have mastered the "snow donut" you and a few friends might want to try a Portuguese "dirt donut."

Ride Free Eat, Drink, Be Careful and cut a "snow donut" once and a while.

Thanks for your interest in an instructional manual. But unfortunately one will not be released, as I will be continuing to focus on instructional video's only. On the bright side all will be uploaded to youtube, and will be free of charge.

You can view the proper way to not so gracefully lay down a bike in this video:


Enjoy!

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.
