Peter and Kay Forwood will be presenting

Hi everyone,

Just thought I would let you know that we have a top notch posse of presenters lined up and I will post up an update on the schedule. Most noted on the latest arrivals is that Peter and Kay Forwood are coming and will be doing a presentation. Peter and Kay have been on the road now for years on their Harley Davidson Electraglide. Together with the bike they have been to every country on the Earth.

Not one to miss.

I absolutely want to do the advanced off road ride. I'm new in Australia, so I have no idea where anything is, so I cant lead any rides.

Hey guys!


We are a couple from Germany and we are „On the Road“ since around 9 month now (compared to Lisa and Thomas or Pere and Kay, that´s really nothing… )


We started in Germany and crossed whole Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia and in 3 weeks we´ll ship our both 20 years old Honda Transalsps (still running and running without any major problems! ) from Timor-Leste to Darwin, so we´ll be in time to visit the meeting!


This will be our first HU-Meeting and we are really looking forward to it!


Many greetings, currently from Ende/Flores/Indonesia
Bea & Helle

If anyone is interested

Hi all,
If anyone is interested, I will be leaving Western Sydney riding for Dayboro on the morning of thursday the 7th June. The intention is to head up the Putty road to Singleton and then to Dungog, Gloucester and across the Barrington Tops to Walcha. Then Armidale (maybe get a look at Wollomombi Fall....possible camp spot ???) and then take the old Grafton road to Grafton, then Casino, Beaudesert,etc.......

I'm not too sure how far I will get on the first day but I reckon I'll be rolling into Dayboro on Friday, mid-afternoon.

Your welcome to tag along

This is not that far away now so I thought I should start doing some planning.

Do we need to book for a powered camp site? I couldnt see a phone number to make a booking.

It says for a powered site to make sure you have a long enough extension cord. How long is long enough?

There aren't that many powered sites, they are directly opposite the pavilion. I don't think the show society does bookings for sites and so the best advice is to get there early. A 10 metre lead should be enough.

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.
