Finally joined up

Hi all

After a long time of 'lurking' and trawling all the good info on here, I have finally registered and become a contributing member of this forum. Am currently in the process of trip planning for 2009 and 2010 and once these are a bit more final I shall publish them for discussion and disection!!!
I have done a bit of UK and Europe riding / touring and will often go away on the bike for 5 / 6 days and come back having covered 1,000 miles or so, so I am quite used to long days in the saddle as well as short days of only 40-50 miles and just admiring the scenery!!

Thanks for the welcome guys. My longing for longer journeys started after a brief 4 day trip to Germany. Once I had been there and back on the bike, going out on a sunday was never the same again. I am now in the process of planning for 2009 and 2010.
At the moment I ride a Kwak Versys 650, which while not the prettiest bike, its reliable, cheap to run and comfortable for all day use.

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.
