WOW !! Thanks for all the replied !!

First day wasnt so great. FROZE my arse off riding down to London wearing my gear which was bought for Africa..

I discovered my Wolfman tankbag's £15 rain cover blows if you go faster than 20mph and that my ear plugs just transmit ALL the wind sound from my helmet LOL ...

I got to my travel partners place and he said "Hey, my brakes have been spongy for a few weeks, what you reckon ??"

HE HAS NO BRAKES ! Master Cylinder is totally shot . He thinks their fine and "He doesnt use them much anyway".. Christ, I didnt expect things to get so interesting so soon LOL..

So, its up at 6am to make the ferry to Spain !! That's if Neil doesnt ride off the jerry into the English Channel, finally realising his his brakes are useful at times

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.
