Pre-registration is now open for the 1st Horizons Unlimited Montenegro Travellers meeting, to be held June 27 - 30 2013 in the NaturePark Biogradska Gora, near Kolasin!
Our local hosts, Blazo Milic and Tonko Nisavic, have stepped up to make this happen, in a fantastic area with great riding. They plan some superb ride-outs as well as a great lineup of presenters. There are stories from travels to Iran, Morocco, NordKapp and a motorcycle policeman! From climbing Mt. Everest to riding around the world, these guys have been there and done it and they're now going to tell you how you can do it too! See the Montenegro page for all the details.
If you pre-register and pay before the end of April you can save €15 on a full event pass.
Thanks for anything you can do to help spread the word about the event. There is a poster on the web page you can print off and hand around to local venues and bike shops too!
As we count down the days, you can get the latest event updates by subscribing to this thread, (thread tools, subscribe) or 'Liking' the Horizons page on Facebook.
Volunteers to help out, and always more Presenters also wanted!
I`m very happy that you decided to visit our country.
See you in a couple of months and hope it`s gonna be a good experience
I wish we COULD be there, but not this year sadly. Unfortunately we can't get to all the meetings around the world in a single year, we're now in 11 countries and every continent except Antarctica! The costs for that much travel are way too much - though we'd love to do it!
We ARE VERY pleased to have an HU event in Montenegro, and hope to get there ourselves soon! When we get to 200 people or so, or another event not too far away so we can do two in one trip, then we can do it.
We hope you all have a great time, and with Blazo and Tonka running it, and help from Dimitris from the Greece Meeting helping out, and hopefully our Canada Meeting Organisers Ekke and Audrey Kok stopping in on their around the world trip, we're sure it will be amazing!
I'll be in the broad area around that time period, so I might stop by to say hello, and maybe ride one of the rides you're offering. In the meantime, subscribing to the thread
Dear LethPhaos, there will be very intersting thing to hear during meeting, so maybe you can join some courses and listen to some presenters. And camp ground will be good organise with beautiful nature, domestic food and lot of interesting participants. After meeting you can take some od those rides bacouse we will make good maps for riding, with lot of explanations so you can do them by yourself.
But what ever you decide. You are wellcome to stop by.
Absolutely beautiful country and an enviable meeting! Unfortunately, one can't be everywhere at once but if for some reason my UK visa paperwork doesn't get made on time and I can't reach the Ireland meeting, this one will be my best backup plan.
"I just wanted to say thanks for doing this and sharing so much with the rest of us." Dave, USA

"We just finished a 7 month 22,000+ mile scouting trip from Alaska to the bottom of Chile and I can't tell you how many times we referred to your site for help. From how to adjust your valves, to where to stay in the back country of Peru. Horizons Unlimited was a key player in our success. Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world are in debt to your services." Alaska Riders
