Peet is the owner of a shipping agent in the Rotterdam harbour (Holland).

For fun he provides worldwide shipping for motorcycle travellers, see the above link. He shipped two bikes for me from Rotterdam to Anchorage, Alaska.

Good guy, knows how it works.

Check out www.motortransport.nl for more info, and send him an email.

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.
