Thumbs up Saturday 21st Mini-meeting

OK! It's all coming together nicely. I have replied to all those who have registered, so if you have not received a reply, then get an email to me sharpish. It means you are not on our list.

If the weather is wet, we will have plenty of room in the garage. There is about 35 registered at the moment; a good number to have I recon!

Kind regards

Nigel and Lee

Mini meeting in CHCH 2009

The meeting was very nice!

It was my first one, and I am new to the HUBB. I meet a lot of nice people with interesting story's to tell. The ride down from Welli was very wet but worth the effort. I would assume that there have been around 30 people from all around the globe.
Thanks again to Nigel for the organisation and the GREAT catering .

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
