I can't do Moto Andalucia because of work commitments, unfortunately, but I'll pencil in the 2008 HU meeting. Combining it with the HUMM is a nice idea. I missed this year's HUMM because of work too, so I'll be keen to try it next year.
Hi, I'm new to the HUMM, but could you pencil me in for the 2008 meet. After a couple of trips in Holland, Germany and a great week in the French Alps i'm eager to undertake more trips/adventures. Look forward to meeting you folks and learning from your experiences. By the way,I have voted for September.
Seriously looking into organising the first HU Meeting in Spain for 2008. Anybody interested in attending/presenting? We live 35km inland from Malaga in the Spanish mountains and have some of the best biking roads in Andalucia. Venue would depend on numbers. Let me know. Thanks.
I can't believe this, I've not logged into the forum for about a year and i log into find that you are organising something in my back garden.
I am close to El Chorro (alora) so if you need any help let me know..
Does that work for going to morocco for end of ramadan?
I'm riding from Belfast on a road bike (honda deauville) and going on from the meeting to morocco to do a tour based on Tim's suggestions in the thread 'Morocco for beginers'.
Anyone else on a road bike?
Yes, that week does coincide with Ramadan (September 1 - September 29) and we're looking to leave on 22 for about 2 weeks or so. Tim did a presentation Morocco at our Moto Andalucia meeting last month and it got us all fired up to go!!
So far, everybody is on dual sport bikes and we are planning to ride roads and pistes. Eventually, we'll be publishing the proposed route with waypoints when we've got it all mapped out.
I'm considering doing my own thing in August but I'm having problems finding people with the motivation to come along.
I'm in Education so August is my only option as I don't get to choose my holidays.
But if my own thing doesn't work out and it was in August i'd love to come along.
Just incase your wondering! No I'm not a teacher and although I do get the same holidays, I don't get paid for 'em.
Thats why it's one trip a year in August.
Hi from northern Spain (oops Catalunya).
I am up for this meeting this year and especially like the idea of a Morrocco trip afterwards, would be better around the first 2 weeks of september because of kids etc. Hope it will happen and keep the info coming
