Have a great time everyone, it should be a big turnout!
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it as I previously stated...a bigger/last minute plan has gotten in the way - I'll be heading up to Nordkapp on Sunday from Harwich.

Enjoy and pls post some photos!
cheers,
Derek

I'm out

I'm afraid I'm out this weekend too...sorry for the short notice - not been on HUBB so much and hadn't got the subscription updates. Also got a bad cold - all us lightweight real northerners are dropping like flies. DougieB and Laura can 'represent'. Would have been good to meet you all and see the guys who made it on the Scotland mini-meet again.
Would've been a cheaper weekend too - getting new tyres tomorrow...
Enjoy

It's blowing up a gale here in Edinburgh, sounds like ideal weather to go out on the bike. I'll see you all there tonight.

Thumbs up

Be there in a few hours - damp (but mild) and breezy on high ground in the west... and a full moon

Welcome to Tan Hill :-)

May i just say I'm a lightweight! I was at the meet on Friday night and it was a great night to meet loads of people over a couple of s. Friday night the winds where a bit extreme in the tent but Saturday morning was a beatiful morning got to wave goodbye to the run out and then had to come away back to Newcastle today but i thoroughly enjoyed meeting everybody and I hope to meet you all again sometime.

I called in at Tan Hill at about 10.30`ish just as the green laners were heading off. Enjoyed the craic with Brian and Birdy (C90 rider, mad as a lorry) and then had a good ride home through the dales.

I hope those that looked a bit rough this morning were able to drink themselves better .

Jake wasn't kidding about the sheep being as hard as nails - one pushed his bike over and another tried my wiring before Jake "smacked it on the coupon" as we say in Glasgow. It then followed Jake home to his tent .....

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.
