Horizons Unlimited presents!
Achievable Dream The definitive guide to planning your motorcycle adventure! This insanely ambitious 2-year project has produced an informative and entertaining 5-part, 18 hour DVD series. "The ultimate round the world rider's how-to DVD!" MCN UK.
Collectors Box SetAll 5 DVDs with a custom printed slip case. "The series is 'free' because the tips and advice will save much more than you spend on buying the DVD's."
Advertisers- Horizons Unlimited is well-established as the first source of reliable, unbiased information on all aspects of motorcycle travel.
We reach a dedicated, worldwide group of real travellers, and are the only website focusing exclusively on long distance motorcycle travellers.
If you sell motorcycles or motorcycle accessories, riding gear, camping equipment and clothing, transport motorcycles, organize motorcycle tours, or have motorcycles to rent, you should be advertising with us!
We are also looking for volunteers as usual! It takes help from volunteers to put on the meeting and help it all run smoothly. When you register for the event you'll have an opportunity to volunteer, and we'd greatly appreciate it if you'd help out for just a few hours. It's a GREAT way to meet people too!
Mucho thanks to Catharine, Les, Jody and Clinton for making it all happen!
Susan will be there too! I can't make it unfortunately, but I'll be there in spirit!
While I would certainly encourage you to join us in North Carolina, I can understand the appeal of the north side of Lake Superior. I rode around there a couple of weeks ago, and I was amazed how much it reminded me of parts of Newfoundland -- simply magnificent!
My wife and I will be attending this event and will be holding a presentation, or maybe even two! Looking forward to it!
One snag in our plans, we drove our bike into Canada last year with foreign license plates and because I acquired my Ontario motorcycle license am not allowed to drive it... and I seemingly can't register it because the Canadian government feels the bike was not built for the North American market (even though the version that rides around here is the same as mine).
Anyway, we're looking for someone who would be either
give us a lift from Barrie train station to the site (and/or back)
give us a lift from Toronto
even crazier: is anyone hauling a trailer there with space for one extra bike? that way I could still bring the bike and use it for the presentation!
I know it's little crazy, but am hoping to find a solution that wokrs for everyone!
Drop me a line with any questions or offers! Yes, we'll pay for gas!
Well I will have to say a big Thank You to my special friend Susan Johnson for all the understanding and help. Considering the weather was a tad at times, for the most part the was shining and warm for most canucks.lol
How ever the Aussies and a few from the south felt the cool crisp fall air of the great white north, ( serious there was no snow in the air Ken Duvall)
I like to Thank all the presenters, for a great presentations and ride out. A shout out to the Vendors who came and donated prizes. ( Giant Loop/KLIM/Held/Kriega/Powerlett/Optimate)
I would like to send a big Thank You out to Clinton Smout and his assistant Amanda. With out Clinton we would not have had the land to camp out on.
Amanda is the email guru up at the school. Oh and the girl can ride
The learning curve will be superb for next years event. Which I can pretty much assure it will be in August.
So to all the folks who attended and help make the 1st HU Ontario meeting a success in my books, I say THANK YOU"

Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world are in debt to your services." Alaska Riders
