When are you in Japan?

There are a number of people heading in the same general direction at around that time, me included. I'd be interested in the Japan to Magadan section but then need to get back to Vlad to meet with other members heading over from Oz. PM me if you want to discuss.

Hi,

I plan to by mid July in Vladi and put the bike on a boat for Magadan. I want to be in Magadan at the beginning of august and try the Old Summer Road. I'm looking for a partner to do the Old Summer Road.

In Mongolia I want to ride in end of June beginning of July.

Then come back via Yakutsk, Lensk, Myrni, Irkutsk, Transiberian Highway to Ukraine and back home to Romania. I will ride a Honda Transalp.


I’m looking for anyone planning a similar trip, and want to share information and ride together at least parts of the road.

Safe rides,
Adrian

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.
