Full details and Registration open now!

We had a great time last year, the area has amazing roads you'll love, and the food was fabulous - worth coming out for alone!

I am going I hope lol.
Seems there may be small little problem with my work and me going. Will get all the getting done and all the paper work done and to all the people that need it long before this comes up.

The roads are grate fun just do not try them at night. This is not SoCal no lights and road fixing is more in line with 3rd world than the many may know. Hay it is the lost coast!

Just the place for a HU meeting.

Wash in the river, walk the sand beach and ride dirt roads that I do not think have seen upkeep for years. All before a all you can eat breakfast! Then a sack lunch and its a out for a photo shoot, cows walking in the serf! All on some vary windy roads with no one on them. Then back to camp in one of the most laid back areas in the USA.

The food was the best I have had at a HU event (and most other places restaurants) . Well worth the price. grate food the Cooks got a standing ovation for there work. Spend the $ and eat vary well. I will see if I can get the Vintner (wine guy) back this year.

If you have never been to a HU meeting or to the lost coast then this is the time to go. The area seems to be made for Horizons Unlimited. The roads are grate fun that will remind you of adventure gust riding them the locals are laid back fun loving and know who you are and where you are going. seem we made a grate impression on them last time an where the talk of the area some time.

The area around the lost coast has some grate area as well not the least is the redwoods and ocean.

Getting there it is off the pacific coast highway 101 a grate road in its own right and near highway 1 one of the best rides in the USA. I like to come in from the North there is a grate vista worth the time to stop and take a picture you will know when you see it is hard not to see it. You may not want to try this at night as you will miss it and he roads are twisty, deer and cows some time walk around on them if you must slow way down.

I'll be there! I get back from Korea and will have enough time to get my '65 Ducati back on the road before this meet. I move to London end of August. Now if I can just find an inexpensive way of getting my Duc to the UK....

Hi Peter,
We'd love to see a roadside cooking demo! Let us know if you'd like us to bring anything, i.e. supplies, ingredients, whatever.
