Mikey, I appreciate your assist in helping me get to this forum. Do to the cancelation of this year's Silk Road trip, I am hoping to take a Gold Wing to South America to have a place to ride during Wisconsin's chilly winters. Being real lousey with languages I am hoping to find some travel companions for a leave in the fall.

Heading south to Argentina as well; I'm already in South America

Hi folks:

My name is David and I'm in Medellin Colombia now. I just recently posted as I'm looking for a travel companion myself here: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...824#post382772 ... and would love to at least meet up and potentially travel together.

Give me a shout if you're interested.

Hi I'm David; headed to South America via a Suzuki V-Strom 650.

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.
