Hi Ela, love the pic of Joy, Pete and myself. Really enjoyed our chat and look forward to catching up again at the HU Travellers meet in June. Oh, and thanks for the heads up regarding the spare fuel tank.
Had a great day and, despite the cold, was probably the best attended Adventure Day so far.
Despite the high cost of living, it remains popular.

Great day out and always good to find reasons to get the VStrom out of the garage in February. Keen daughter jumped on the back and enjoyed all aspects of the day apart from the cold.

Great chatting to lots of people although rarely seemed to put 2 and 2 together and connect faces to user names on the HUBB.

Day went really well until arriving home when good friend Leighton invited me to take his brand new 1200 GS out for a quick spin. It was very smooth and such a delight to ride after a day in the Strom saddle that I can feel the bank manager getting worried already.

Top Tip - if you dont want to give in and join the GS brigade on principal then DO NOT RIDE ONE (cos they are really really nice)

I missed out on this one as I'm a newbie on here. Is there another planned at the Ace?

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.
