I've never been to a HU meet before but would love to meet up with more in the area. I'm in Hayle and don't need much excuse for a ride.

Fantastic Harty. Walter Colebatch was down here in October and said he might be able to make February too. Time to set a date then. 17-19th or 24-26th? Avoids the Dragon but before Belle goes .

That would be good! Met Walter at Austin & Lois's a couple months ago but didn't realise at the time just what a hardcore rider he is!

Talking A Cornwall Meet

Either weekend is good for me, at the moment anyway.
great that Belle can make it, she'll be shaking the tin with me for the Mongolian Children's Hospital Mural- a thread on the Bar forum about that.

17-19th feb

Hi folks I can make the 17-19th of Feb, but I cannot make the weekend after that. I work every other Saturday and getting a weekend off work is similar to pulling teeth.

Looking like it will be the weekend 24-26th. My other half is away over for a few days the week before and won't appreciate coming back to a house full on the 17th. Better that I plan a family weekend together on the 18th and have the meet the following weekend.

Just hope that the weather isn't too wet between now and then as the ground is already saturated. It really needs to dry out a bit. Plenty of time for that though.

Of course. We are in the village of Minions, about 4 miles north of Liskeard and 25 form Plymouth. Have a look a wee bit NNW of the village and you will find the Hurlers stone circle with a 360 degree panoramic photo, just to give you a taste of what the place looks like, providing the weather is nice.

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.
