Thanks

Thanks to all who made Creel a great week, especially Grant and Arturo.

I had a great time and met loads of jolly nice people who spoiled me rotten.

Red face Copper Canyon Photos

Yes, quite an adventure, lost riders and all!! I took close to 200 photos of the whole event, some during the search for the Lost Ones, many of the bike retrieval. Many shots of the guests and their bikes (probably yours too!). Don't have the slightest clue of how to download them from Picassa to the HUBB (Help!).

I learned a lot about the bikes, gear and RTW travel. Made some new friends to boot, namely Della, Kelly, Grant and Arturo. Hope to stay in touch with all and track Della and Kelly on their RTW trip.

The old Triumph made it home to Sandy Ego (say it fast) in record time, about 500 miles/day, with a one day stopover in the middle at Bisbee, AZ. Cool town!

thanks! and see you next year!

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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
