Unfortunately it's now looking like I'll be working that weekend, so you'll have to manage without me

Have fun!

Hi All,we are trying to get a rough idea of how many Folk are planning coming up to Cannich this year.If there is enough of us again,the Pub will be happy to do a buffet like last year at a reasonable price.It would also be handy to know numbers for the campsite.
Cheers the noo

Barring accidents and acts of god....
Likely to arrive late friday afternoon or early evening.
Cant speak for Touring Ted or Diehard, last heard they were thinking "seriously" about it. Hard to believe that Touring Ted, the man who conquered South America and Raped, pillaged, plundered and generally laid to waste the "Dark Continent", is having to think about it, LOL......
See you on the 13th.
GM

Hi folks,

We are both hoping to make this one... Chris's bike is fine (as long as he doesn't use his back brake!), and my bike has just passed it's MOT so all I need now is Road Tax and a new clutch cable - or I can keep developing the muscles in my left hand!

We also need to check that we have enough pennies but it's looking likely!

Rob - will be in touch re meeting up on Fri!

Looking forward to it!

Beej (& Chris)

I really really want to, but:

It's right in the middle of my work shift.. I'd have to take two days unpaid leave and ride 440 miles in one day on my little DRZ.....

Hi Chizz, I still want to get up to your meet but have just had an unexpected bill for near a grand - hit the pennies a bit, so I am afraid it looks like I am going to have to give it a miss - was really looking forward to the ride up and seeing everyone again - its such a nice location, great pub - hopefully see you sometime soon. cheers jake.

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.
