Hi from Sydney, Australia
 
Howdy all,

I'm a member of advrider, and kept seeing links from other members to threads on this 'horizonsunlimited' site. Damn good site this, with an incredible wealth of information, and so I registered.

I'm planning a 6 month ride around Europe next year, hoping to buy a bike in the UK and get insurance (ha! f*cking near impossible or so it seems!) and reading up on all the threads I can about all the info I can find.

Anyway, nice tae make yer aquaintance hopefully I'll meet some of you HU denizens out & about next year!

Hi Joe

And welcome. Sounds like an awesome trip. I am planning 6 months in UK, Ireland & Europe in 2017 (when I can get long service leave). I am hoping to take my bike with me.

Cheers

What bike do you have? And what sort of travelling are you intending (off road, purely road)?

2017's a loooooong way away... but at least that means you have a looooong time to really plan your trip :)

Hey Joe.
From Melbourne myself, planning a similar trip in 2014.
:)
Have a blast.

Yes it is a long way away but the way time flies it will be here in no time. I wish I could do it sooner but that won't be possible unless I win lotto (heres hoping :cool4:)

I currently have a Triumph Scrambler but by then am hoping to have a Tiger 800.

I will be doing road, my trip will be about immersing my self in other cultures. I want to spent a lot of time in Ireland and the UK, my Mum is English and my Grandmother was Irish. I became an Irish citizen this year. So the plan is to spend a lot of time discovering my routes and getting to know my relatives over there.
