Product Description

An exciting new series from Horizons Unlimited, the global home of motorcycle travellers!

Road Heroes - Motorcycle Adventure Travel Tales features tales of adventure, joy and sheer terror by veteran travellers, some of whom also contributed to Horizons Unlimited's Achievable Dream series.

Road Heroes Part 1 contributors:
Gregory Frazier - Riding, racing and repairing motorcycles steered Greg's passion from a hobby to a profession as he circled the globe five times and logged over 1,000,000 miles on a myriad of motorcycles. America's #1 Extreme Adventure Rider, moto-journalist, author and film producer, Greg loves adventure as long as no snakes or sharks are involved.

Peter and Kay Forwood originally planned a six-month ride to Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand, two-up on their 1994 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide. 12 years and over 500,000 km's later, the same motorcycle visited its 193rd country, every UN-recognized country in the world!

Tiffany Coates set off on an R80GS for a simple trip to India that turned into an epic two and a half years on the road. Since then, her motorcycle wanderlust has taken her to Australia, Timbuktu, Africa, Alaska, Labrador, Tierra Del Fuego, the Silk Road, Siberia and Outer Mongolia. She's been chased by wolves, police forces, and stampeding elephants, fled from volcanoes and hurricanes, and believes there's always another destination on the horizon.

Rene Cormier - never one to let excessive planning get in the way of a good ride, Rene Cormier ultimately took five years to cover his 41-country, 154,000 kilometre route. Riding the old-fashioned way with no sponsors and a $25 per day budget, Rene learned this big ol' planet is much nicer than we are led to believe, and there is no better place to experience it than on a motorcycle.

This DVD is an inspirational tour de force of the different ways to tackle round the world motorcycle travel. Whether it's the semi professional approach of Dr Greg Frazier or the 'just do it' approach of Rene Cormier, you can't help but feel the itchy throttle hand and know you'll be enjoying the hours to be spent researching your own trip. This is a great follow up to the Achieveble Dream set of DVD's and includes the retirees approach of Peter and Kay forward as well as the one area at a time method adopted by Tiffany Coates. All the presenters tell great stories, which are well illustrated, and they seem to have been chosen so as to present four different ways of achieving that dream. I can't wait to leave these shores and discover the world!
Well done Grant and Susan.

If you have ever dreamed of travel by motorcycle and have yet to explore this by meeting like minded people at a Horizons Unlimited event then buy this DVD. Truly inspiring travel heroes sharing their stories will get you hooked and inspire you to realise those dreams. My DVD arrived today and I watched right through this afternoon without a break, loved it.

Grant and Susan bring another fantastic DVD to the market. I loved watching this DVD and would dare anyone to watch it and NOT want to travel the world by motorbike.
This complements the Achievable Dream series and I cant wait for the next chapter. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and hilarious! 14 May 2011
By Peter Jowett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you're curious about motorcycle travel to far-flung places, you owe it to yourself to watch this video. Upon viewing, you soon get the point that these people are "regular Joes" who decided to do something BIG, and had a great time learning the ropes along the way. They are all entertaining speakers, and guaranteed to make you laugh out loud!

Lots of amazing stories and even more amazing photographs, it's great fun and very inspirational.

We have watched all the other Horizon's Unlimited videos, and can heartily recommend every one of them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 14 Dec. 2011
By Phoenix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I expected more than live recordings of speaking engagements. Indeed, the riders have impressive stories to tell, and to attend their events might well have been inspiring, but setting up a camera and recording their slide shows does not capture the power of their journeys. The motorcycle riders, while great adventurers, are not great speakers. Their monologues quickly become tedious and the video becomes another installment in the infamous tradition of slide-show monotony. Add in tacky backgrounds behind the talking heads and occasional poor sound quality and there is not much to like visually or aurally about this DVD. I am going to give my copy away--if anyone will take it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see/ own DVD 19 May 2011
By Alexandre T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Just finished watching this incredible DVD.... It will take your motorcycle traveling to another level. The ONLY thing these motorcycle travelers/adventurers haven't done, is ride on water itself. Otherwise, they have ridden on every terrain possible: muddy, snowy, gravely, sandy & a combination of all mentioned terrains, & they have the pictures to prove it.

Also check out the first series of DVD by HU, on how to prepare yourself & your bike to take such a trip.....

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Series 22 Nov. 2011
By T. McGee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've watched the entire Achievable Dream series three times (all 18 hours) and look forward to this series as well. If you want to know what it takes to ride your motorcycle around the world, there is no better focused resource than Horizons Unlimited for the nitty gritty details.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful entertainment 26 Mar. 2012
By Shawn Bryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I purchased this DVD because I know of the exploits of several of the presenters but have never been to one of their talks. Rene, Peter and Kay and Tiffany are spellbinding for me. Their talks and slides of their travels still up the wanderlust in me, though it is unlikely I will ever undertake anything as challenging as an around the world tour. Greg's presentation was OK but for whatever reason he didn't "speak" to me in the same way the other three did. Don't expect that this is an action DVD where you will see movies of their tours. Rather, this is a recording of these folks talking to a HUBB gathering about their adventures with slides. For me it was worth every penny.
