June 14, 2006 GMT - The Beginning of a Great Adventure
So I got tired of working and thought, hmm, I think I'll quit my job and ride my motorcycle around Latin America for 6 or 8 months. Naturally there was some planning and saving involved, but basically that is what happpened. The general plan is to leave my home in Seguin Texas (near San Antonio) about the 1st of August 2006 and ride south all the wayto the southern tip of South America. I left my job on the 9th of June and am currently doing a little tune up ride on my Kawasaki Concours to visit family and friends in Wisconsin, Montana, Oregon, and if the planets line up right, make it to the Horizons Unilimited meet in Leadville Colorado on the way back to Texas. There, I will switch bikes to my Kawasaki KLR 650, do some final prep, and head south.

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 such as this one (18 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.
