Horizons Unlimited is actually a specialised forum dedicated to adventure riders which was inspired by the veteran couple Grant Johnson and his wife Susan back in 1997. Some of the big names in adventure riding which came to share their personal experiences and tips were the host from Indonesia Jeffrey Polnaja, Ted Simon (England), Steve Campbell (Australia), Andy Dukes (England), Jeff de Wispelaere (USA) and the couple Shannon & Mike Mills (USA). Anita Yusof was the only Muslim female adventure rider where her session was joined with Nicole Espinosa (USA) and Maggie Magowan (England) to share their experiences collectively.
When asked about the event, Anita responded “The event is very significant to all fellow adventure tourers and riders as all of them share very important experiences, tips and technical stuff as well as getting to know each other through their adventures. I am very excited to be chosen as one of the presenters for the very first Horizons Unlimited event in Asia. Usually they’ll only go to Europe or America.”
GIVI Indonesia also sent over a very experienced motoring media member Wisnu Gareng Guntoro from Dapurpacu.com for a solo trip from Jakarta to the Sumbawa Island which covered over 3,000km. Wisnu was the only media member to join two GIVI sponsored events in a row; the GIVI Explorer 2015 South Africa Tour and the GIVI Explorer 2016 Andes Tour.
Their Director of International Operations Mr Joseph Perucca was also present during the event as a representative from GIVI. According to Joseph, “The GIVI name is synonymous as the manufacturer of adventure riding gears has been very supportive in the gathering and sharing experiences with participants to ensure that the interest in the field keeps on growing”.
