Vancouver Isle - South America

Im leaving on my airhead GS end of October 2013. Going straight down US coast to avoid the weather . As I have previously travelled the coastal US Mexico is where the adventure begins. I am wondering if there are any others on the same path who might want to pass tips along to me as Im solo and am going in to this trip without a lot of planning and really just winging it as I go.It might be nice to meet up for a drink and tell stories .

Thumbs up

Sounds like a great trip. I'd love to go but I don't have the funds or the time right now!

Have a good trip!

Hi Randy -- Seth here in Penticton, planning to ride a newly-acquired 1100RT to Baja and parts south (plan to meet up w a buddy in Panama to early December... but am very flexible, with no set itinerary.)

Departing Canuckistan around Oct 21, overnighting at a bud's in Salinas and thence to the HU meeting in Cambria October 24-27 (Details at http://[URL="http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/california-2013"]www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/california-2013[/URL]) Maybe you want to leave a little earlier and attend?

In any case, feel free to contact me. -Seth

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.
