Talking Nice to see I'm not crazy

Grant hello from BeemerChef Ara he told me about this site and I'm so happy to see that I'm not the only nutcase with dreams of seeing the world and dealing with the elements on two wheels. I have garage full of bikes and head full of ideas ( the money on the other hand wellll not so full but who cares ). I've seen just about all US (including Alaska) and Canada and now its time to venture out of the safe zone so I am going to Iceland in September if all goes well. Oh crap sorry for rambling but just happy and actualy all I wanted to do is say HI

Thumbs up Welcome

Pete,

Welcome as a new member. It may take a little time to find what you want but keep digging and making freiends, you will find what you are looking for, or realise that it wasn't that important.

Cheers, happy daze.

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.
