Drive safe and happy

One of the gladdest moments of human life is the departure upon a distant (not so distant but hopefully one day will depart) journey into unknown lands.Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy.

When in Sweden and Finland

Hi. Me and my wife live in Gothenburg Sweden. If your trip includes Gothenburg you are more than welcome to visit us. We are planning a trip to France and Finland this summer but if we are home feel free to visit us. I´m born in Finland so if you want I can contact friends in Finland who also drives bikes. Perhaps they can let you stay over night and also give useful info about roads and interesting places to see.

Best Regards
Juha & Susan

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.
