Hello Kito,

There are four of us who have met on the way down. We will be in Lima for the start and then travel down to Pisco to catch another leg. A little diversion on our otherwise cultural journey! Want to meet up? Drop us a line.

Regards, Mike.

Dakar

I may get to work with a team competing from the UK (Paul Jay), but if not, I'll straight go to Pisco. I'm in the north now, Huanchaco, and will leave here on 1 or 2 Jan. I'll follow the Dakar route, going across from Calama, which was very high (5,000+ meters) when I did it 2 years ago. Then I hope to buy tires in Tucuman and visit the shop there owned by the Argentina motocross champ.
I'll probably just continue over to Falls do Iguazu again, then go to Rio where I'm trying to ship to South Africa.
You folks seem to be on good dual sport motorbikes, while this time, I'm on a fat, heavy, primarily road, Suzuki Wee Strom. Wouldn't mind sharing a cold one or two if we are in the same place.

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 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 to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
