Are you a traveller 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 climes 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?
Grant and Susan Johnson, 11 years Round The World veterans and founders of Horizons Unlimited, the worldwide #1 website for motorcycle adventure travel, bring you The Achievable Dream series - the most comprehensive, definitive guide on DVD for planning your motorcycle adventure.
What's it like to spend weeks, months or years on the road? In this 2-DVD set, our veteran travellers share their tips (and great stories) for staying healthy, happy and secure on your motorcycle adventure.
You'll get the advice you need to help you cross borders, break down language barriers, overcome culture shock, ship the bike across oceans or war zones, and deal with the 'stuff' that happens such as breakdowns and emergencies.
This DVD features legendary travellers like Ted Simon (author Jupiter's Travels), Gregory Frazier (5 x RTW), Sam Manicom (author Into Africa) Lois Pryce (author Ladies on the Loose and Red Tape & White Knuckles), Austin Vince (director of Discovery TV's Mondo Enduro), Peter and Kay Forwood (190+ countries on a Harley), Chris and Erin Ratay (Guinness record holders for RTW travel).
Also, we have interviewed over 100 other inspiring travellers at our live events in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany and Spain to get their stories, tips and hard-earned knowledge on trips to nearly every country on earth.
Hundreds of photos, video clips, and presentations by experts are also included.
Be warned, viewing this DVD may be a life-changing experience!
Here's what people say about The Achievable Dream series:
These (DVDs) are especially valuable when you re having those 'this is too big for mere mortals, what the heck were we thinking?' moments, because they include plenty of interviews with regular folks, sans super-powers, who just chucked it all and hit the road. Michael, USA
Keep up the fabulous work! We loved the first 2 DVDs. Hope you are getting as much enjoyment from making them as we are from watching and being inspired by them. Angela, Canada
The format and presentation is excellent and there is so much information, help and advice that you will probably need to view each disc several times. Even if you are a seasoned adventure motorcycle traveller you are still bound to learn something new. For those with less experience be warned, these DVDs could seriously change your life! Kevin, Scotland, reviewed on Amazon.com
I thank you very much for the first DVD - it was very inspiring and convinced us that everyone can participate in the global bike adventure regardless of financial capacity, choice of bike and age. Mick, Australia
This DVD is a fantastic insight into the world of international motorcycle travel, very well put together, loaded with lots of useful advice, interviews, great footage and practical tips, a truly inspirational insight, if you are thinking about travelling overseas by motorbike, get this DVD before you go, if you're only vaguely interested, get this DVD and soon you'll be planning to go! Stuart, Australia
A heart-warming and inspiring video. It simply makes you want to chuck it all for an adventure. Immerse yourself in the Achievable Dream for a few hours and I'll guarantee that you'll watch it way more than once. I am positively salivating for the next instalment. Two dusty riding thumbs up! --Motorcycle Mojo (Canada)
Its tips will save you money, help unravel the red tape and might keep you out of jail. The DVD is also inspirational and makes the point that you don't have to be a super rider, super fit or have loads of dosh to give it a go. --Motor Cycle Monthly (UK)
