Had a good time at The Ace, and with my friend joining me there on her bike we doubled the KLR turn out this year to......two.And the weather wasn't bad for those that made it. Thanks to those that have posted photos as i forgot to take my camera. Look forward to the next one.
Despite the high cost of living, it remains popular.

Sam Manicom's talk about touring Vietnam. Sorry it's a bit hazy, we'd just come in from outside and the camera lens fogged up a bit.

Some particularly fun bikes:

A bit late

I really must check the dates on HUBB threads before spending too long reading! I was looking for a thread about the 2011 event and was 2 pages through this thread before I realised I was a year late. Believe it is on again this year and I am now off thread hunting or starting about 20th Feb 2011!

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.
