The bule bar

See the blue bar towards the top? Just under the 'Horizons Unlimited' title?

Read through the things there ... put mouse on 'GET INSPIRED', 'GET READY' and ''GEAR UP' to start with ... that should give you lots of info

Also Introduction - 4 easy steps to motorcycle travel | Horizons Unlimited

Other stuff ? read other peoples blogs who have been there to see what it is like, they may also mention paperwork.

You should look into things like the paperwork you'll need for the bike and yourself because this will often save you money if you arrange it beforehand rather than deal with it at the border crossing. You should also be aware of the accessibility of health care and money in the countries you are visiting - some countries don't recognise some credit cards, for example.

Other than that too much research could spoil your trip in my opinion but as Warin says this site is the best you'll find.

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.
