Horizons Unlimited is an organization of adventure riders. If you're someone who rides internationally, often into countries you can't even pronounce, then you'll have heard of them. This international organization has chapters all over the world, where adventure and RTWRound The World riders gather regularly to swap stories of their motorcycle rides.
Horizons have released some time ago a series of interesting DVDs for wannabee adventure riders, or just plain for armchair adventure seekers. Five DVD sets are available, each with its own objective:
- Get Ready! Inspiration and help for preparing a long distance motorcycle ride into the unknown (and we don't mean the Starbucks in the next city).
- Gear Up! A 2-DVD set that covers you how to pack your motorcycle for months long riding. It shows you what to take with you and how to stow it away on your motorcycle.
- On The Road! This 2-DVD set will show you what it's like to spend a long time on the road. Veteran travellers will tell you their secrets, showing you how to stay healthy, happy and safe.
- Ladies On The Loose! A DVD made by female adventure riders for women. It shows you several globetrotting women (Lois Pryce, Tiffany Coates, Patsy Quick and many more) on how they do it, and why.
- Tire Changing! When you are riding the tough roads (if you want to call them roads) chances are you're going to burst a tire, and there's no AA to call for help. This DVD shows you how to change and repair your own tires.
Below is a teaser of "Ladies on the Loose", just to put you into the mood.
Cost: US$ 139 for all 5 sets (18 hours). Individual DVDs can also be purchased
