Should I assume from teh lack of response that there is no direct link for me & my bike from Vald to US (ship or flight)?

Bum...looks like I'll need an alternate route.

As far as I'm aware you have to get a ferry from Vladivostok to South Korea or Japan and then fly the bike to North America

Unless all of the planets are in line AND you're the sort of guy that always gets to second base with a girl on a first date; ride to Zurubina and head to South Korea...

If you mess with Vlad customs you may have an issue with Zurubina as well...ask/PM Hook.

OTOH...things could change by the time you get there...I exited there in August 2007.

PS...The only ferry to SKorea is from Zurubina...and the Japan ferry leaves from Vlad.

Hey - I'm not from the US but if "second-base" is the one where I go home alone then I'm in luck!!!!!!! ;o)

Thanks for the info in ferries. I was beginning to resign myself to this option!

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.
