Fellow XR400 rider?

Hi,

My son Luke (18) has been looking at doing this also on his XR400 since our last trip: Around the Block 2007 | around South America, but he is not quite $$ ready yet. He is looking at Sept once he earns enough $$...

Hi,

If all goes well, my wife and myself will be starting off from Southeast Mexico (Villahermosa) to Ecuador around late July-early August. Email me if you will be around the area at this time:

longuito@yahoo.com

Happy trails and safe riding!

Luigi

I will be leaving Victoria BC early October and going south via the great divide trail then shooting west toward TJ then south through Baja. After that south through via Belize and so on. Let me know if that fits your plans.

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.
