Yamaha XT660Z Tenere (2008) for sale in Alaska, August 2013

Hi Everyone!

I'm currently 2months into an 8month trip from Ushuaia, Argentina to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. Unfortunately I've realised that I'm not going to have money in the bank to ship the bike back home, to the UK...

So I've decided the best thing to do would be sell it to someone else who would be interested in taking it for another trip! The bike would come with panniers, tools, cooker and other bits and pieces I've bought for this trip that I wouldn't need at home anymore..

I haven't yet even thought of a price, just seeing if people would be interested...? I know it's not sold in the US and a couple of Americans have raised their ingest (as they aren't sold in the US) but obviously the easiest would be to sell it to a Brit...swap over the V5 document and send you on your way!

Does this appeal to anyone...??

Hey dude! I met you on the Carretera Austral when you stopped at the viewpoint near Ingeniero Ibanez and you were still riding with Radioman, who just so happened to know my dad. Bummer you need to sell your bike, but I don't think you'll have too much problem selling it. I hope your travels are still kicking ass. Send me an email if/when you get close to Oregon, my brother can give you a place to crash... although Radioman probably gave you a lot of contacts too.

Free up for this good looking bike!

Does the bike have a 17 digit VIN number?

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.
