Europe Loop: UK, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe to Turkey, West

My wife and I will be starting in London in early June, and riding a big circle route generally from the UK to Scandinavia, Germany to Poland, then south to Turkey, then east along the Mediterranean, then to Morocco and possibly further south. No big deal, but we want to do this as much off road as possible. (Dirt riders from California, we don't feel comfortable not sliding.) Anyone have any hints on good dirt riding or want to come along for a while? We'll be on an Adventure and a TTR250. fun fun.

Hi, me and the missus are setting off from UK in early June and heading for South Africa via Nord Kapp, hoping to be there for the longest day, June 21st, mid night sun and all that, maybe see you there. Chris

Hi, all. On behalf of Norwegians on the HUBB I'd like to wish you all a very warm welcome to Norway. Beware of occasional snow storms in the far north in June and sheep and elks strolling along the road.

As a member of the Offroad Touring Club Norway, I have some ideas of routes that might suit your need for off-roads. If you let me know where you intend to go while in Norway, maybe I can be to some help? If you should experience any problems while in Norway, do not hesitate to contact our small but service-willingly local HU Community.

Best regards, and safe journey

Indu

Charlie:

If you smoke or drink, buy all you need of both before you enter Norway. Taxes there are beyond belief on those two items. Otherwise, it's a wonderful country.

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.
