South African joining the ranks

Hi

Happy to join finally. I live in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. My bike travels have been lmited to Sub Saharan Africa, South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Malawi, Botswana, Angola, Zambia, Lesotho etc.

I tend to gravitate more to the gravel side of things and at the end of this year I hope to see some new continents, Guatamala and Argentina is on the menu.

I'm sure I'll meet some of you out there.

Erik

Yes, that would be me.

How would I go about that? Post a link somewhere? I don't know my way around the site yet.

Enjoy Uganda, I'm told it's a fantastic country for a bike. When you make it down here, call on me if you need a place to sleep.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

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.
