Hi Paul, Be leaving Perth 26th of December 2017. The ride will take some 30 days if You do all sections. You can do as many or as little as You are able. You do not have to be on a Royal Enfield, but that sounds rather cool. Its going to be the best fun while promoting Winifred Wells and raising money for Guide Dogs. Check out the FACEBOOK, ADV rider (inmates section) or email direct to pamsmcride@gmail.com all the best and thanks Beetle.

I have been busy promoting PAMS MC RIDE where ever I can and some.

Please promote it as much as possible, even sign up for the ride and start raising funds. This is for charity and Im able to get taxable recites for You on money raised over aus$2. Please visit and get Your friends, family and work mates to visit the Webb site and donate in some way, a NEW motorcycle is the prize for the most money raised over aus$1,000 once You've signed up.

Picked up Greg(promotions/advertising man) in Albury( Greg came down special from Sydney way) and with Trish drove to the 300klm to Melbourne to meet up with Judy (project manager) at RACEWAY motorcycles and had a very fruitful meeting with Jason Purser. We had general discussions on how We could assist each other in promoting "pams mc ride". Had a photo shot of the 350 Royal Enfield while Jason went over a few details. Looking very positive and We all thank Jason for his time and future input. Then out to lunch to have an informal meeting of the PAMS group, then back to home. A big day and great day. All the best Beetle

Hi to All, This motorcycle ride is about 3 things actually 1) Raising $105,000 for Guide Dogs Victoria 2) Raising awareness of what Winifred Wells did in 1950 as a Young Lady 3) Raising awareness of the Royal Enfield name and its ability to repeat the ride across Australia. You've heard it all before but to sign up and pay up to ride will help out those who are unable to do the things that a lot of us take for granted. Ill be taking the next words from a letter I received from Guide Dogs Vic. "If You ask anyone who's ever had a Guide Dog, they will tell You straight - the toughest part is WAITING". So please don't wait, do something NOW to help Your fellow man/woman. Join PAMS MC RIDE and lets get a minimum of 3 dogs to deserving people. Wouldn't it be fantastic for us all to see the faces of those deserving people when they receive their own Guide Dog, what a world it will give to them. I tend to dribble a bit so Ill leave it at that for now. If You want to chat to Me personally don't be afraid to pick up the phone - 0458294271. On that note Trish and I will be travelling for several months from the 1st of August, some times We will be out of phone and Internet range, but as soon as We are in range I will respond to messages. All the best Beetle.

ps - PAMS (Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney)

Doing lots to promote

Been on the road a bit doing promoting of PAMS MC RIDE. Took a trip to Tasmania for the Jampot Rally, put on by the AJS and Matchless club of Australia. Had a great time, even got to do a little speech at the saturday nite tea and hand out PAMS flyers and stickers, lots of interest from attendees. Then the following weekend went to the SR500 Rally at Bethanga in Victoria. Great turn out, raised $278.45 for Guide Dogs by selling stubby holders and Toy Guide Dogs and from straight Donations. If in Australia keep an eye out as Ill be doing other Rallys/Gathering in 2017 (all going well on a classic 350 Royal Enfield) Ill work on putting up some photos, all the best Beetle

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
