Thumbs up Great Meeting

Dave: Just got back to Canberra after a good ride back through Kosciusko national park. Thanks for all the work you put into organizing the HU meeting. I was impressed by the large turnout and met lots of interesting and inspiring people.

I hope I got some people interested in visiting Mongolia!

Regards, Scott

Got in the door about 1/2 hour ago. Both Helge's and my bikes never missed a beat. Lilly was an utterly brilliant pillion the whole time.

We did close to 1600 kilometers on this trip. What a ride. What an event. Will post photos etc tomorrow.

Got into Melbourne around 6pm after a 500km ride back to Melbourne. Bloody freezing up the top of Falls Creek - down to 1 degree C , and started raining for the last 100kms into town.

Many thanks to Dave for a great event, and it was a pleasure to meet so many new faces.

Looking forward to seeing you all next year.

Garry from Oz.

well another one bites the dust

Well ,all in all i think the weekend went pretty well ,friday had a few schedualing issues as to not knowing when some presenters were arriving and some not arriving at all ,i was a little all over the shop there ,but got underway and had great presenters up with stories enthralling every one ,then the media projector shit self about 10.30 ,oh far out(mild version of what i really said) ,bit like breaking your only chain joiner link in the middle of the gobi dessert ,so the night ended a bit early
we managed to break the drought in the area by holding this event as it pissed down, on and of, all weekend, dampening the postie bike tyre change comp off the agenda . Saturday we had a lot of riders head up to dartmouth dam for some pics and some headed up to Mt Benambra into the clouds and then a wet ride back to Mitta
Saturday night we had to make do with my tv that Tim the pom kindly drove out from Albury, as we could not get a replacement projector ,after moving the chairs a bit closer all went well with great talks about Russia China ,Canada/USA as well as Central and South America ,
Robin from Safari Tanks did a great talk on how he got into making long range fuel tanks and how to make them

I would again say thanks to all the presenters as well as Kim and her team from the pub for looking after all us with great food (especially the spit roast)and a place to mingle and not to mention she let a lot of guys FREE camp at the back of the pub , and must also mention the great work Sian did with all the paperwork with registration, and Ann and Chris who manned the desk most of the weekend and sorted all the registrations,my mate Dove for his helping hands all weekend ,and Grant and Susan for the site without which we would not have these get togethers ,the best thing about these meetings is the people you get to chat to and swap a few travel stories ,so hope every one has safe travels this year and see you next year ,i'm off to south america for 6 months in may
cheers dave

Excellent weekend chaps, I got back home just before dark yesterday and was glad to get some heat in these Queensland bones Them 0 degrees centigrade days are not for me

I will be doing a ride report over the next few days and will post an update here when it is done, it will be posted on my blog.

I am now in serious bike strip down mode, ready for my US trip in a few weeks.

Cheers
TS

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.
