You will never be alone in istanbul...

All questions for entering Turkey by bike, paperwork,customs purposes,route planning according to your likes and dislikes,recommended places, crating and shipping to other countries, tips are always biker friendly welcome...

TIP-1...
Sure will be interesting to participate some bikers' festivals in Turkey, organised by local bikers clubs and offer free camping,entertainment,etc, chance to share spirit of adventure with local bikers..Ask for festival dates available during summer months..Some festival photos....

Please dont write a club name here, have friends in many clubs in Turkey.
Here just for friendly and personal talks on the mentioned subjects without making it a business.
Friendship,travelling,sharing,meeting nice friends and volunteering for my country tourism are always most important...

Mehmet and his friends offer a welcome that's second to none . We really enjoyed our time with you all, and hope to visit again sooner rather than later.

You are always welcome..This time lets participate a bikers festivals on your route in Turkey.Please inform me a few days before you are here so I can make a good programme for your stay.This time will try to pronounce like a Scottish!!!

Personally following all the blogs to keep my inf. files up to date..As we discussed while you were here, together with all supports, will be a good and friendly meeting point and pit-stop for bikers in the entrance of istanbul with current information that may be needed on the road and no traffic rush..

Those who are not friendly are always eliminated here.

Your hard trip is much appreciated..Reading all with great interest.I Guess it's time to change the bike for the following trips!!!!

Wish you all the best.

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.
