Welcome to the first HU Italy Meeting!

Hi guys,

I found a great location for our first HU Meeting in Italy, close to lake Garda!

It will take place in beautiful surroundings at the village of Capovalle. Right between lake Garda and Idro lake. This will be a very special Meeting in one of the best riding areas of whole Europe!

It is limited to 60 people - we will stay at a very romantic farm house.

Including breakfast and dinners

Sleeping in the house or in your tent - both is possible

Please register early...it will be booked out soon...

Prices:

Tent(incl. 3 breakfasts, 3 dinners) 89.- Euros

House(dorms) 149.- Euros

The whole farmhouse is only for us, great fireplace, firewood incl. workshop incl.(if you have problems with your bike...) The owner is a motorcyclist too and is willing to show us the best rides in the area! - Even some Off-Road is possible!!!

Hope to see you there!

Jens - El Aleman

Hey mate, that's fierce competition to Ober-Liebersbach/Heidelberg - at least for us Bavarians

But that sounds terrific. Grand scenery, beautiful roads and, ahhh, la dolce vita.....

Hello Jens!

I live only a few dozens of Km. from Garda Lake, so it could be a blast to be there and meet you all in front of some good glasses...

I and my girlfriend have only a problem: we may be free from work only from Saturday late morning to Sunday evening, so my question is: is there a "package" for one night only, also? We'd stay in our tent, in case...

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
