The fees will be significantly lower for the actual bike. I asked them to ship a bike sized 2.290 x 835 x 1.404 mm. The actual shipping cost will be lower than that because I'll ship it on a smaller crate (the one postet by pecha). I just kept the above measures to be able to compare the different companies. So it'll be a little cheaper in the end.

Only 10 days to go and I finally chose a shipping company. I decided to go with In Time, a smaller shipping company that seems to be very trustworthy. They charge around EUR 1.400 (including insurance) which is more thn EUR 800 cheaper than DHL's offer. However, InTime's USP really is their service. Whenever I asked something they would reply within 1-2 days and patiently explain me everything. So let's see how everything works out...

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.
