The HU California Travelers meeting is proud to host Dr. Gregory W. Frazier, recognized as “America’s #1 extreme adventure rider.” He has circumnavigated the globe five times, literally riding a myriad of motorcycles to the ends of the earth. After 1,000,000 miles of riding and racing motorcycles, he says, “I’ve not been to Everywhere, but as long as I am still roaming the globe it’s just over the horizon.”
Dr. Greg will present SUN CHASING: RIDING THE WORLD, a documentary film of Dr. Gregory W. Frazier’s five circumnavigations of the world by motorcycle, four times solo and once with a pillion. The film is narrated live by “Dr. Greg,” and filled with tips, tricks and entertaining tales of his adventures and misadventures piloting a wide range of motorcycles ranging from BMW to Kawasaki to Harley-Davidson, with a 1947 Indian Chief and Amazonas thrown into the mix.
We're very pleased to announce that Peter and Kay Forwood will be presenting the story of their 14 year RTW trip to ALL 193 countries of the world on a Harley-Davidson ElectraGlide - and yes it's still going, it's stock, and it will be there!
Hello all! Been meaning to post here for a while, really looking forward to the meeting! Took a spin by the site with Mike & Sandy back in the Spring and it's a great little facility for the meeting with a great view of the Pacific. More infrastructure than Petrolia, and will certainly be a different experience in that sense, but seems well suited to the HUBB meeting. As others have said some great riding in the neighbourhood too, so many positives! See you all there!

Hi all. Well, surprisingly enough, my boss has given me 4 days off to make the meeting. Cant wait. Ill see you all there.
If anyone is interested in meeting up, Im planning on leaving Lancaster sometime in the morning on Thursday, making my way through Carrizo Plain National Monument, camping there or somewhere just north of it on Thursday night and then getting to the meeting sometime on Friday. No plan other than that, which is itself a very flexible plan, but if anyone is interested maybe we could meet up.
If you haven't looked at the Presenters List for this event recently, you should! We have an amazing roster - it's going to be a VERY full weekend, with presentations starting at noon on Friday and solid right through to late Saturday night - we may even have a few on Sunday morning!
Jut a few very recent additions:

Good eats on the Road!Peter Dean, Executive Chef
You CAN eat really well on the road - learn from the master! Practical demo - bring your notebook!
Should I bring my soft cooler and drinks or can get them there??
You're going to want to bring your own. Last year several riders had turned their hard panniers into coolers. Adventure riders are a clever bunch -- and where is concerned, Canadians seem to be among the cleverest! (There was a great turnout from our neighbor to the north.)
