Welcome

Sure is a great place to find lots of interesting information from people with similar interests from all around the world.

I'm in Alice Springs - the middle of Australia, and contemplating a short weekend ride out to the east - bitumen (tarmac) for about 80km then 300-500km dirt depending on the weather and how much rain we get tonight/tomorrow morning.

Welcome

to the HUBB John!

There is plenty of info on here and we look forward to hearing more about your part of the world.

A tip, because the HUBB search is a bit crappy you can search using google and specify the domain, for example type into google:

"<search string> site:.horizonsunlimited.com"

Where <search string> is what you are searching for.

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80 G/S motorcycle.

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.
