Probably more reliable than a Ducati...

I'm travelling to the meeting from the UK with my pal Mark so we will see you there.

Correct...49ccm - Enough!

Hi Vaufi,

you are right - 49ccm! Top Speed around 50-55 km/h, but downhill the machine speeds up to 58!!!

See you at Lake Garda - Jens

Hi Jens & Grant,

I'll start off the FAQ section

1) I have registered and paid, but haven't received the GPS co-ords yet.
Where must I go so I won't get lost ?

HU Meeting Italy

Hi guys,

I hope there's still time to register for this first HU meeting in Italy, I can't miss it !! Some friends would also like to come, can I register for them, too ? Is it possible to arrive one day later (same problem as others, work, work and work ...) I live quite near Garda Lake, so we could arrive on friday evening and stay untill sunday ...

If interested, I have some video and slides about our rides around the world (Asia-Africa) ...

Ciao to everybody and see you at Garda Lake !!

H.R.

No problem registering, we still have room.

You can register for your friends too, just remember all registrations for this event are prepaid, so you'll have to collect from them

Arriving late is not a problem, but you will miss out on some things. Please confirm when you know for sure so we don't cook for you and have to throw it out.

There is a discount if you want to do a presentation/slide shows, I think €10 or so. See the presenters page, link on the Italy Meeting page - in an hour or so - I'm still working on the Presenters page update!

See you there!

rental in Italy

I checked on motorcycle rentals in Italy and it seems expensive. How hard is it to purchase a motorcycle there and leave it in storage or take it across boarders?

Hi,

No problem - we have two payments for you. Why you haven't received the second one from PayPal is curious, but nothing to do with us. Perhaps check your junk mail - just because one came through doesn't mean the other one will.

As far as we're concerned, you're good to go!

Hope to see you there,

Grant

Re Italy HU meeting

Hi just need to know what the subscription situation is like with regard to the Capovalle meeting. I plan to attend with a couple of friends and we've been away riding in the West of Scotland. Are there still places available for the 3 of us? Thanks, Dave

No problem! We always CLOSE the registration when we fill up - no point in leaving a form to register for something that's full up, that would be annoying and rude, and we try not to be!

So as long as the form is there, fill it in and you're good to go!

cheers, Grant

I could offer a quickie on Southern Africa. Coupla months of biking from Cape Town via Lesotho & KwaZulu-Natal, across to north-western Cape, Namibia, Botswana.

But only of you ask me politely

Hans

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.
