Hello,

All bordergates to Iran are open and last week 5 bikers did without any problems who were in İstanbul with us a while ago..
There is only a saying that will be closed for vehicles between may-20 and june-20...Noone in Iran is able to confirm its true or not...

Need to remind every body that
1-Carnet is a must.
2-No ATM machines..
3-Facebook is illegal..

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. 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.
