Oh, did we mention that Bernard is one of the presenters at Enniskillen this year
And, whilst we are name dropping , a very "fingers crossed" congratulations to David Kyle, our "Globebusting" AV man who makes sure that all the techy stuff works at each Ireland meeting.

Great to learn that Geoff Hill, well known adventure travel author will be giving a presentation at Enniskillen this year. Geoff is an award winning newspaper travel writer and author of many books including “Way to go: two of the World’s great motorcycle journeys”, “The Road to Gobblers Knob: from Chile to Alaska on a motorbike” and “Oz: around Australia on a motorbike.”
Just last year he completed a re-creation of the first round the world motorcycle ride so his talk at Enniskillen will be well worth hearing.
To anyone debating about turning up with 4 wheels, go for it. I was there with a Landrover in 2011, got hooked on the stories of motorcycle travel and left home and have not been back yet. Addictive stuff!
I'm gutted I can't make it over this year. I had an absolute ball with everyone last year. I came away feeling that I'd been surrounded by friends. There were so many bonuses for being at the Meet.
Here goes just some of them: The great atmosphere, the venue, the camping area, the enthusiasm and helpfulness of the organisers and volunteers, the excellent presentations, the beautiful area and, well, I could go on. I hope you have a fantastic time!
"I just wanted to say thanks for doing this and sharing so much with the rest of us." Dave, USA
"Your website is a mecca of valuable information and the DVD series is informative, entertaining, and inspiring! The new look of the website is very impressive, updated and catchy. Thank you so very much!" Jennifer, Canada
"...Great site. Keep up the good work." Murray and Carmen, Australia
"We just finished a 7 month 22,000+ mile scouting trip from Alaska to the bottom of Chile and I can't tell you how many times we referred to your site for help. From how to adjust your valves, to where to stay in the back country of Peru. Horizons Unlimited was a key player in our success. Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world are in debt to your services." Alaska Riders
