Bike swap Melbourne/London 09

I will be in the UK from May 09 for about 5 months. Would love a bike to ride. My gorgeous R850R is here waiting for a responsible rider as a possible exchange. Gillian

Hi Gillian

Hi Gillian

Lovely idea, but to many family commitments to return to Aus just yet. Can give you an option that may help and have done this with a couple of Aussies in the past. One was even from Melbourne, called Guy who had a 95 Honda Transalp 650 for his trip round Ireland and the UK. I'll send you a pic, just in case you recognise him.

I can give you all the advice you need about biking in the UK and Europe, then you can buy a bike from me at a little over trade price, ride it around and then we sell it towards the end of your trip and share the profit. If that sounds like a good plan, check out www.welovebikes.co.uk to give you a good idea of what's available and let me know what you fancy.

Hope this helps and you are welcome to visit us when you are over, as we live in a nice part of the Cotswolds, with plenty of nice walks and warm !

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Chris

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.
