Meteora

I'm in Meteora now on my way, losely to the meeting and yes, it is stunning. Scenery that i think it unlikely you will find anywhere else in the world. Actually stayed for 2 nights which is most unusual for me LOL.
Bertrand are you attending this one? be good to catch up.

BTW The oil pressure switch on my R100 GSPD has gone and packed up on me so if anyone attending has got or could source a spare it would be most appreciated.

The inaugural Greek Horizons meeting is now well and truly over and what a fantastic few days it has been! Just a few of us remain to pester the refuge staff: myself, Taz, Joel and Martin, who are heading off south together tomorrow; Alex & Mila are also heading south but are way too much in love to want to travel with us…. Hanno is heading off north towards Albania

Dimitris and the refuge staff finally have time to sit and relax and take stock of the weekend. The few of us left have done a sweep of the site to collect any left over rubbish and true to form for a Horizons meeting there was hardly anything left to pick up, which for a gathering of 127 bikers is quite remarkable by any measure.

Dimitris has done an amazing job of organising this first event and I’m sure it will go from strength to strength in the coming years. As for Babis, Paula and their staff no praise is high enough for the fantastic job they have done in looking after us and always with good humour and a smile! They have had to cope not only with over 100 hungry, thirsty bikers but also with weather that just suddenly went from intense heat to a storm of tropical proportions to say nothing of a power cut on Friday night which I must add did nothing to dampen the good humour and enthusiasm of the participants!

The presentations were a nice mix of Greek and English so there was plenty to keep the interest of the non-Greek speakers amongst us and very well put together and presented. For my money the best of the non- Greek presentations was undoubtedly Alex Conrad with not only a most professional presentation but also a truly humbling story
.
This is a meeting that I can only see going from strength to strength and it is a shame that one prime HU sponsor couldn’t see their way to assisting Dimitris rather than showing utter and complete arrogance which will have done their already poor reputation no good at all. I for one sincerely hope that they are not in attendance next year

Once again a huge thanks you to everyone (except the supposed HU Sponsor!) involved with this new kid on the block. I look forward to celebrating its first birthday next year when I am sure the attendance will easily top the double century!

Greece Horizons Meet

I can only praise the staff and Dimitris for all the hard work and organization of the first--and hopefully not the last meeting in Greece. Outstanding venue way up here in the mountains, stunning views and what wonderful people. Hospitality here has a whole different meaning. Put this meeting on your calendar for next year.

Joel and Taz--back on the road tomorrow to a couple Greek islands, maybe then to Turkey and points unknown.

I have just arrived back in the UK after this meeting. I can only echo what other people have said. The location, the people, the organisation, and the presentations were all exceptional. You must put it in your calendar for next year, you would be crazy to miss it! Photos are appearing now on Facebook, and I have asked people to share their links here. In the meantime this is a link to one of the presentations, What happened when 4 Greeks travelled to the 'enemy' state of Turkey (English subtitles)
