How did you find the agent? Do you recommend them? How far in advance do you have to apply?

I’m fooling around Thailand/Laos/Cambodia now for a few months and trying to figure out best option for leaving these countries - although continually renewing visas and bike TIPS’s might allow me at least 6 months.

My tentative plan is to ship bike from Indonesia to Europe or maybe even from SIngapore if I can crate it in Indonesia / Batam.

There are Facebook groups dedicated to finding others. You can apply and cross at any time, but the more in advance you're searching if no other group suits you the higher the chance you won't be alone.

At the end I was in a situation where there were two groups entering at the same time with different agencies. It would have been cheaper per person if that would have been one group, that just happened because everyone first found one of the agencies and then searched for others to join. So plan ahead and find buddies before inquiring!

You can cross any time, I know a French person that crossed Tibet in December. It's cold, but the agency doesn't mind

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.
