Hi Jens,

Hope all is well and the planning is sorted. Just thought I would let you know I am in Sedan, France, (near Charlesville Mezieres) and will be heading out tomorrow, and just thought I would let you know I have booked in for tomorrow, but based on the distance to go, and riding the back roads there is a chance I either will not make it there until Saturday morning, or get in late on Friday.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and to the speakers.

Cheers,

Ian from Canada

p.s. Reason for the delay, is I was at a friends son's wedding near Bordeaux, and it took a bit longer than planned to get up this way.

p.s.

Meant to add, if anyone has any questions about British Columbia in Western Canada, or riding in the Pacific North West, I would be happy to talk to anyone.

Cheers,

Ian

[Dear Santa, for the next meeting please bring me a new *ss or one of those expensive Corbin seats!]

Hi all,

Just made it home with rain only for the last 60 kms, good that in a moment will have a... hot shower??? .

Thanks to everyone for such a great weekend and special thanks to Jens, what a great organization. Mil gracias. First HU meeting for me, couldn't be better. I hope many others will follow!

Many priceless moments as Luis dancing bachata on the reluctant tire, or Richard with his s and fanny cans, or the touching moments in Daniel's presentation and his quite emotional dialogue with Tobi, I noticed we were many with glossy eyes. Just to mention a few of many!

Best wishes for everyone (cross fingers for Fern's engine to resucitate soon to take her to NZ), and safe trip back home to all!

Esteban

Nice to meet you Karolien and great that you had fun. We had a great time too and the spirit of horizons unlimited lives on good and strong. Huge thanks to Jens and his local friends who prepared the event for us and a massive thank you to the people in the restaurant who kept the and food flowing day and night so tirelessly! That waitress worked 18 hour days...

We had a dry run back to Brussels with just a few spots of rain late in the day - not even worth wiping the visor ... and some of those local roads were just awesome. My tyres have been well and truely scrubbed in after this trip
THANK YOU

Hello

Massive thank you to all that made the rally happen, it was fantastic.

Wonderful to meet so many interesting and kind hearted souls.

I will link my photos shortly.

Well. The news is good, the engine is stripped, there is no obvious damage, we are awaiting parts from..... Germany of all places, oh the irony. So we think the sludge was coming from the oil tank. We will rebuild on Friday/Saturday, I will do 500 or so miles here, check oil and if all is well, will leave the UK for Iran next week.

Thanks for the lifts to and from the bike shop, and all the tea and sympathy.

I can't wait to get to another HUbb, who knows where!

Fern x

Well I'm back home in Sunny Scotland now. Well done to Jens for the weekend and a special mention to Vicky who never stopped working and keeping us all supplied with food and drink.

Fern, I'm glad to see you made it home and that the news isn't as bad as it could have been.

Thank you all, especially Jens, for that great meeting. I learned and enjoyed it a lot. Do not regret that I missed the soccer game for a wonderful presentation.
I am happy to have met you all, good fellows. Looking forward to meet you again.
Happy and safe travels!
Tobi, Vancouver, still looking for a bike : )

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.
