Hi there from the Wirral

Hi Craig glad you joined. 3 of us from the Wirral met up this evening. There are more of us but I have not been able to make contact yet and 1 of those is on his way to Africa. Will let you know when we are meeting up again and may plan a ride out or something.
Take care
GM

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.
