Hi from snowy Nottingham, UK

Just a bit about myself.

I've travelled a fair bit already over the last 12 years, following my passion for scuba diving and underwater photograghy but only over the last 2 years have i discovered the flexibility and possibility of travelling the globe on a motorbike. I've been biking on and off since i was a kid but only recently have i taken the whole motorcycle travelling thing seriously, so i bought a BMW r1200gsa last year and made a short trip through europe which was great fun. This year i'm planning a larger trip through the Americas.

Its a great feeling to be part of the motorcycle community again!!

Good fun with another fellow scuba diver on the forum. I´ve actually stopped now but did some 2.000 dives in Asia, Africa, Scandinavia etc and was also into uv photography a great deal.

Welcome to the forum. All the best.

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.
