Talking North Carolina 2010, Seventh Annual HU Travellers Meeting Open now

North Carolina USA, Stecoah, Sept 9-12.

Full details and Registration open now!

A little later in the year, so you can avoid the heat getting there - and once in the North Carolina mountains, you'll definitely enjoy the Tail of the Dragon and other world-famous roads. And don't forget the off-road too - it's amazing!

Hope you can make it - it's an event you won't want to miss!

He spends part of his time in Bulgaria with his girlfriend and his moto camp, part on the road, and part in the USA!

Last I heard he was coming!

see you there, Grant

Great! Haven't seen Doug since April. He is always good for a great travel tale.

We cannot wait to go to our first Motorcycle Travellers meeting. We are wondering if in this one there are rides scheduled to do around the area.
Thanks

We don't lead rides for insurance reasons, but there is loads of information at the venue for you to do your own ride or join others for an informal group ride.

Our main focus is on meeting other travellers and sharing information, and slide shows on travel plus tech clinics.

see you there!

I will be arriving Friday night. I will be on a BMW GS with every Touratech accessory you can think of. Look me up and have a map in hand. I live in the area and can show you enough roads to keep you as busy as you want. I will warn you, though, this is more of a "seminar" type event than a riding event. I rarely start the bike until Sunday morning while attending a traveller's meeting. You will learn more than you thought humanly possible if you hang around for all the presentations. I usually bring lots of paper to take notes. Grant could get rich if he sold HU stationery at the meetings.

Area GPS resources

Does anyone have or know where to find GPS tracks for the area both on and off road routes?

Also does anyone know the law regarding motorcycle travel on ATV trails in the area?

Thanks .....looking forward to riding the area and meeting fellow travelers/riders...

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.
