Umm, a silly question, but when is this one on?

I have seen no dates but I may well be in the area after Alaska later on.

Cheers

see you there!

"Coach" Ramey will be there!

He'll talk about the "why's" of off-road riding - why this works and that doesn't - great stuff from the master, not to be missed. Unless of course you don't want to be a better, more knowledgeable rider...

See you there! Grant

HU Cali

Thanks to the HU Cali organizer - Stephan Leblanc (and Grant) for persisting with the development and planning for this. It's got some great elements for me -
  • The 'Lost Coast' - never been but always wanted to go
  • Ted Simon - will have to reread the books over the next month
  • September - when everyone else is 'back at work' and travel is quieter
  • Opportunity for three or four 'late season' weeks on the backroads getting there and back.
My cheque's in the mail.

Looking forward to a great meeting!!

Thanks again to Stephan for setting this up with Grant!

Stephen

Can people in the area print and hand out a poster of the meeting? it is here http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/meetings/posters/California2009poster.pdf

I am looking to get the CA. meetings off with a good start for that we need people to come. The more the better 300 or so for a first meeting is grate. Any ads in local papers or magazines will help as well.

I also may need some one to get some . I will be riding in and have no way to get it to the meeting.

Hope to see you all there.

Not that I need another excuse to swing by the local bike shops, but these flyers gave me an excuse to hit up some East Bay dealerships.

Excellent, I'm looking forward to the meet. Are there any gasoline sources closer than Fortuna? I know there's an above ground tank in Ferndale, but I've found it expensive and unreliable. Cheers.

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.
