Albadross, there's a few heading down from Edinburgh. I'll be heading off on Friday night and I think some of the others are leaving on Friday afternoon. You'd be welcome to join us I'm sure.

Britch - off road ride will probably leave about 10.30am-11ish. Road ride will probably be about the same.
Albadross - look forward to seeing you, I'm sure there'll be a brew (tea or ale!) around to warm you up!

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.
