Talking Hi from Switzerland!

Well what to say first.... Hello!

My name's Guillaume I'm 25 and I discovered motorbiking in semptember 2008 just as a try, had an opportunity to get a cheap 1989 Yamaha DT 125R (which did scare the little jesus out of me more than once :P) and since that... I hooked on it badly.

I started to dream about long trips since 2009's Dakar and my poor old 125cc went for bigger trips within switzerland (12 000km in a year isn't too bad for such a small bike with stock seat ).


So now here I am, gonna gather a bigger bike for bigger trips! (morrocco and Scotland this year) but the bike's choice gonna be in another subject

Thanks in advance for all the precious info that I might read here around!

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.
