Chiang Mai

Hi All,

Just wondering who's going to the meeting? We'll be in Laos at the time and just want to know if it's worth the extra visa fees.

Was there last year and had a good time.

Sorry, we never know for sure who is going to be there- travellers are notoriously unreliable! If you had a good time last year, I don't see why you wouldn't this year!

Wish I could be there myself

Hu Meeting Message Update Received

January 8 Horizons Unlimited Mini-Meeting Warming Up
Motorcycle travellers are vectoring into Chiang Mai for the 5th Annual Horizons Unlimited Traveller’s Meeting, the largest motorcycle traveler’s meeting in Southeast Asia! Several of these serious adventure riders are in transit during their ‘round the world journeys, some are finishing-up, while others are in the planning stage, mapping out their dreams to ride to distant points on the globe.
Recently published details are:
MOTORCYCLE TRAVELLERS MEETING: January 8, 2011, 5th Annual Horizons Unlimited international motorcycle traveller’s meeting for an evening of travel tales, camaraderie, swilling and chilling. Chiang Mai Saloon #2, 30 Ratchawithi Road, Chiang Mai, 3:00 PM group photo at the Chiang Mai Saloon#2, 7:00 PM meeting starts with introductions, multi-media shows and 15% off on drinks and food.

Tom Forde, having just returned from Australia, will share with attendees some of his adventures in the Land of Oz.
Tentatively slated to attend are ‘round the world travellers Goh and Samantha from Singapore. The couple attended the 2008 HU Traveller’s Meeting in Chiang Mai as they began their attempt to be the first Singapore motorcyclists to circle the globe. They successfully returned home in late 2010, having taken their Africa Twin to some of the furthest points on the earth. The “Singapore Dream” can be followed at www.singaporedream-rtw.blogspot.com/
Attendees can also expect the unveiling of some of the “secrets” behind the first solo global circumnavigation by motorcycle (1912-1913) done by Carl Stearns Clancy. www.motorcycleadventurer.com
Horizons Unlimited stickers will be available for purchase at the bargain price of 30 THB each! Sticker your motorcycle, or tag a point on your journey with a sticker and send a photo to Grant and Susan at Horizons Unlimited Central.

Looking forward to it....

We hope to be there. We're leaving Vientiane tomorrow and heading up ChiangMai way. We'll probably be there a day or so early and would love to meet up with anyone who's around. See you in the new bike traveller's bar, Rider's Corner - by the north east corner of the canal - for a and a chat?

Chiang Mai meet

Big thanks go out to Greg and Tom for their hard work in setting up the meeting. It's great how so many travellers managed to make it, and everyone seemed to enjoy it and go away happy (or merry).

It'd be good to see a photo or two of the line-up.

Thanks again - we'll buy you a Chang when we see you.

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.

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.
