Once every year,Turkish Bikers meet each other and foreign bikers who is around İstanbul at Motoplus Show...Tourism Ministry and Turkish Traffic Police department authorities do participate to answer our questions,explain rules and changes and get our wishes...Current information about new model bikes, spare parts and accessories given by factories and importer companies... Acrobasy shows during first and last days...

This year it is between 1-4 March. Eurosia Moto Bike Show-2012.
If you pay a visit, you will be very surprised to see how great the bikers community here is...

I have a cunning plan......23 or 24 June, just after our HU event, to ride from Calais across the Benelux countries up through Denmark to Hirtshals, a ferry to Kristiansand then follow the coast road to Stavanger, Bergen, Molde and Trondheim, turning east to Sweden to Lulea then over the top of the Baltic, then south folowing the eastern shores through Finland to Helsinki, Tallinn (Estonia), Riga (Latvia), Lithuania, Poland then head homewards. Any motorcycle rallies, museums and so on I shouldn't miss during the next five weeks?

Anything else I shouldn't miss en route. (OK I am considering St.Petersburg).

Paul, 69th FIM Rally will be held at the end of June/beginning of July in Tampere, Finland; not sure you will be in that parts in time though. And welcome to St.Petersburg if you decide to go for it - if I won't be on the road elsewhere, I will be glad to meet up for a and maybe a ride, or something.

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.
