Hi Andrew,

We did a similar trip last year. Check-out my Ride Tales on HU

Hopefully this may give you some tips and contacts.

Good luck,
Lou

Hello mate - I did this trip the other way round from 2015/6. Happy to help - want to Skype? If so send me a private message and we'll get something set up.

Awesome. I plan to do the same one day. Safe travels. I'd be keen to here from other's too regarding what route etc. they recommend. I'm sure no one wants to stick to the most direct and 'main road' route.

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.
