This year marks the 20th anniversary of Horizons Unlimited, a resource for adventure travellers, especially motorcyclists. Founded in 1987 by Grant and Susan Johnson, their website, forum and events around the world, inspire people to follow their dreams and travel to far away places. We asked just a few of the many riders who have been inspired by Horizons Unlimited to tell their story about how they have been influenced by HU.
This week ARR starts a three part series on custom fitting your bike to your size with Grant Johnson from Horizons Unlimited. Grant's vast background includes being a motorcycle mechanic and dealer, as well as co-owner of Horizons Unlimited with his wife, Susan Johnson.
After putting almost a million miles on a motorbike as a courier in London, Geoff Thomas decided to pack it in, and in April, 2008, embarked on a motorcycle to travel the world. He took along with him the ashes of his parents to be delivered to his brother in California, while en route. On his return to England in November, 2008, he found that his rented apartment in Essex had burnt down, with all his belongings in it. Left only with his motorcycle and what was packed on it, he just decided to just keep on riding.
