Any meets in Argentina/Sth America late 2011?

Hi I will be travelling south from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia (nov/dec '11) then north up Sth America to Colombia early next year.

Looking for HU meets/travelling buddies/events/anything.

Also looking at purchasing bike in Argentina (preferably BuesAires) sometime in the next 2 months (se/oct '11).

Anyone with similar plans, would love to hear from you.

Bikes purchased by foreigners in Argentina cannot legally be taken out of the country. If you do a search on this topic there's a mine of information about where to legally buy a bike on this continent.

HU Viedma meeting is 9/10/11 December.

Regards, Mick

2nd week of Januari we wnat to see some cross event we've heard about ;-)

after that, to Bolivia....

Perhaps we can meet somewhere?

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.
