Nachtrag: Unsere Moppeds wurden bestohlen, so nahm man einen Scottoiler Lube Tube mit, der in einer Lenkertasche untergebracht war! Wofuer man den hier auch immer gebrauchen kann wissen wir nicht. Das Hotelpersonal empfanden wir als nicht kooperativ (ausser 1 Person), bei der Suche nach einem sicheren Parkplatz fuer die Motorraeder, besonders der Manager stach mit seiner schlechten Laune hervor!!!
Ungefaehr so: : - (
Trotz alledem erstklassiger Zimmerservice!!
Somebody stole our Lube Tube of the Scottoiler from our bike, for what do they use it?? Anyway, the guys from the hotel were not very helpful to look for a safe parking, except 1 guy. The manager was always looking like that: : - (
Nevertheless, an excellent room service!!

We didn’t stay there, but probably the only accommodation we could pay in Dubai.
But it is still not cheap!!!
Close to the Freezone of the airport.

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
