Horizons Unlimited presents!
Achievable Dream The definitive guide to planning your motorcycle adventure! This insanely ambitious 2-year project has produced an informative and entertaining 5-part, 18 hour DVD series. "The ultimate round the world rider's how-to DVD!" MCN UK.
Collectors Box SetAll 5 DVDs with a custom printed slip case. "The series is 'free' because the tips and advice will save much more than you spend on buying the DVD's."
Advertisers- Horizons Unlimited is well-established as the first source of reliable, unbiased information on all aspects of motorcycle travel.
We reach a dedicated, worldwide group of real travellers, and are the only website focusing exclusively on long distance motorcycle travellers.
If you sell motorcycles or motorcycle accessories, riding gear, camping equipment and clothing, transport motorcycles, organize motorcycle tours, or have motorcycles to rent, you should be advertising with us!
but I have to say that real CB although rather articulate (well you know what I mean) when speaking in front or behind the cameras when he gets down to putting pen to paper, is rather less gifted than the average man,
I gother the ol'chap is rather dislexic, to the extend he asked how to spell "george" (when signing the DVD for me..!) and he got michael wrong
which makes me think that the race to dakar man may be the real CB or just another dyslexic
If RTDM is in fact CB and has read the threads relating to the infamous duo's exploits then I am slightly ashamed to be an HU member. 99% of the slagging off has been totally unjustified and is probably all sour grapes that we don't get that kind of backing, or pure armchair criticism. Armchair critics really really annoy me - I don't think you have the right to criticise the way someone does something if you can't do it yourself.
People were willing CB to fail on the Dakar and when he did crash out they were SO quick to point out his weaknesses. I don't think anyone that has ever entered the PD would have said that it was a poor effort. IMHO anyone who has the balls to leave the start line deserves our respect. Interesting note, actual PD veterans do NOT slag off other entrants, they advise and discuss approach, offer consolation etc
Don't think we can expect someone to get a ghost writer to edit their posts either.
Well Mister Boorman I'm impressed by your ability to post on here whilst travelling in the middle of nowhere for "By Any Means", you would have thought you'd have other things on your mind, like Mungo for instance.
Personally I reckon it's someone pretending to be Charley - probably Ewan in a bored moment on set
or the fact that Mr Boorman can post on here whilst in the middle of nowhere proves that whilst making these programmes they never are actually in the middle of nowhere and never far from the latest communications gizmos.
Well, except for the ususal comments about they did not do it alone, but with a large support crew and a heap of spare parts(well with beamers you need em) I reckon it is a great series. Only watched up to Ep 3 so far down here.
My main complaiant is the outrageous distances and agenda they seem to have set themselsves. I mean, Ewan is complaining about not seeing anything and blames himself for the timeframe. Fair enough, well they should have taken more time and slowed down so they could actually experience the places they are travelling through. That surely is what travelling is all about isn't it? I guess it means different things to different people though.
Also, who in their right minds travel through a desert in high summer, just prior to a wet season? The build up to the wet would have to be so uncomfortable, I live in north Queensland, so I know a bit about it.
Anyway, regardless, I am enjoying watching them do it. A shame there is not more mention of the bikes setup though, the in depth technical details, that can mean a lot when others are doing similar things, exchange good ideas and bad etc
Cooped up indoors in crap weather? Binge watch over 20 hours of inspiring, informative and entertaining stories and tips from 150 travellers! Check it out at the HU Store! Remember to order them both and use Coupon Code 'BoxSet+' on your order when you checkout.
