thanks to Keith and Evgin

Today is a very special day for us. we want to share this affected story of amazing and incredible solidarity.

Two beautiful people - Keith and Evgin - cooperated to help us. We dont know them before, and they dont know each other either. But just for helping us they came together. This should be the real soul of travelers

Both of them just has very limited time in Cambodia.

After learning our problem with the rare shock absorber Keith has tried to find someone to send us his spare one just as a gift before leaving the country. At the same time, he was searching alternative ways(like shipping) to send.

And Evgin, a backpaker just passed from the border toThailand early in the morning. But after chatting from facebook, without any hesitation, he has decided to change his way to Cambodia again and travel for 3 hours to get rare shock absorber that Keith has tried to send us.

Fınally, in the evening they have met and Evgin has got the shock absorber from Keith.

Story sounds incredible, but real ... we are so lucky to find them. they found us actually

Evgin and Keith, thanks alot for your solidarity, wish to meet you (face to face) somewhere on this incredible world

ps : i wrote this message yesterday evening but because of the connection problem, i couldnt share it ..

The world is indeed a small, wonderful friendly place. I thought it was just bikers that were great people but it looks like it´s bikers and hikers. Great story.

Keith (& Ellen) are wonderful. When we had our little mishap in Laos recently they were more than ready to come charging to our rescue. Glad the shock thing is working out!

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.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
