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 such as this one (18 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

FS: ’02 F650GS and F650GS Dakar, Berlin Germany. Ready for an adventure!
For sale are two German registered 2002 BMW F650GSs, one GS (“ole Yeller”) and one Dakar (“Conan the Bavarian”). Both are in very good condition and have both had their major 40k service. Sold as a pair they are ready to ride into the sunset, with luggage, spares, tools and camping gear. All you need is a helmet and clothing! We are currently riding them back to Berlin (hence approximate kms) thus they will not be available until after the 22nd of November.
Details for each are as follows:
At its 40k service it had new brake master cylinder seal kits (front/rear), new chain/chainwheel/sprocket set, new front tire as well as the usual replacement of filters/fluids. Never dropped and full BMW service history with all receipts to prove it. I recently changed the waterpump (at approx 49,000kms) which has been cooling like a charm ever since. At the same time the oil and filter were changed as well as the usual array of crush washers and seals. Extras include:
* fog lights
* high front windshield
* original BMW lockable top box
* 12V power socket
* motodetail soft luggage (panniers and roll bag)
* Held tankbag with power cable and lighter splitter
* Helmet lock
40,000km service with all the bells and whistles including new head bearing. New front brake pads. Tires new this year. Never skipped a beat. Extras include:
* Touratech hand guard spoilers, Large Sidestand Foot, Torx Oilcap filler and Sump Plug
* Givi top box
* motodetail soft luggage (panniers and roll bag)
* Aftermarket Seat
* Fog lights
* Hepco and Becker Hard luggage rack (luggage not included)
* Original BMW Tankbag with cable passthrough
* New OEM Chain Kit (not installed)
Sold as a pair, the bikes come with a ton of spares, tools and gear including:
* Front and rear inner tubes (for both bikes)
* spark plugs
* chain master links plus ~6 spare links
* spare fuel hose and o-ring clamps
* rear bulb
* one LHS engine cover gasket
* Super heavy duty 170cm ABUS granit x-chain lock
* full tool kit including wrench with sockets, torx drivers, phillips/flat screwdriver bits, 3 extensions and angle adapters; open/ring spanners (10-24mm); large tire irons; pliers; adjustable spanner; various zip ties; araldyte; WD40; jumper cables; chain cleaner + gunge brush;
* mini air compressor with pressure gauge
* gaff tape
* 2x ockey straps (bungee cords)
* camp stove with gas and cooking set (small and large pot+mugs)
* camp chairs
We would be happy with €5250 for both bikes and all the gear, but will consider all sensible offers. We would also consider selling them individually, as well as selling the tools/spares separately, if the price is right. PM me for details/more photos or any questions.
