Firstly, can I suggest that you edit your post so that your phone number is not visible - less chance of a scam.

Secondly, have you seen the Itchy Boots on You Tube? In series 3 (I think it is series 3) she flies into South Africa and manages to buy a bike through some means - I got the impression that it was not straightforward. As an alternative you could look at buying the bike in Namibia.

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.
