Hi

Hi,
I've been watching this site for a while but never joined until now. I've been riding bikes since I was about 17, never had a car license until a few months ago, still don't own a car.
I've travelled through most of Europe starting with little trips to Greece and now including everywhere except the Netherlands. I rode this summer from Lithuania down to Greece through Kaliningrad, and all the other eastern bloc countries.
I currently ride only sportsbikes but I suspect I am going to have to change that...
I'm currently in Afghanistan until next April but on my return want to buy a bike in Japan and ride it back through China, Mongolia, Kazahkstan and Russia. I was hoping to get some advice on this site.
I won't be able to reply so often to messages at the moment, but I thought I'd introduce myself anyway.

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mark,
Well you have to be busy in AFG, so it is understood that you won't get a lot of time to take part in the HUBB: anyway, welcome

Don't forget that Nick Sanders set his RTW record on a sports bike; a Yam R1.

For the advice: well keep reading into the forums/threads - shed loads of stuff about your countries of choice and that is likely to increase with the Olympics taking place in China in 08.
Read as much as you can take and use the search function for words that might interest you.

Good luck with AFG in the winter!

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.
