Are you a traveler on two wheels? Have you been inspired by the stories you've read on Horizons Unlimited? Or perhaps you watched the 'Long Way' series and it's got you thinking of a motorcycle trip to distant regions; the markets of Marrakech, the Karakoram Highway in Pakistan, the salt flats of Bolivia, the Bungle Bungles of Australia, the Pan American to Tierra del Fuego?
Did you finally fork out for that dream bike built for high adventure, and you know every highway and byway within range of an annual vacation? Is something indefinable calling you farther afield - to the next country - the next continent?
But you've got questions:
Is it safe?
What do I need to know?
Where and when should I go?
And what is a carnet anyway?
Answering these questions - and many more - is the goal of the definitive 'how-to' DVD series, "The Achievable Dream - The Motorcycle Adventure Travel Guide". This series is produced by Grant and Susan Johnson, RTW travelers and founders of Horizons Unlimited, who have been helping people to achieve their dreams of traveling to faraway places on their bikes for over 10 years.
Horizons Unlimited has produced a series of five high-quality DVDs that cover everything you need to know. They took what they learned from their own travels, and since then, from helping other travelers, to create this series. They also asked the many veteran travelers who attend Horizons Unlimited meetings to tell them their stories, give them their opinions, and share their hard-earned knowledge from their amazing motorcycle trips to every country on earth. And they have lots of opinions, sometimes contradictory, so you'll get lots of great ideas.
This first DVD in the series, Get Ready! aims to inspire you to take the plunge, and start to prepare for the trip. This includes material from Grant and Susan Johnson's own 'How to ride around the world on a motorcycle' presentation, taped in front of a live audience in 2008. This is supplemented by scenic images and video clips, dozens of interviews with seasoned travelers and presentations by experts.
