You can get a reasonable deal on ferry crossing from UK to Ireland by ringing Billy Nutt of Nutt Travel ( google "nutttravel" for details) He consistently comes up with the best prices!

Question

Hi Liam and Drew.

Hope all going well for the organisation of HU travellers meeting. Just a question on bringing my motorhome and bike to the event. Is there a place set aside for the likes of motorhomes/caravans?

Cheers

Colly

Hi Colly

Thanks for your registration safely received.

Brian in Enniskillen has confirmed that there is room for up to 10 camper vans so you should be ok. But don't forget to also bring the bike as plans are afoot for several on and off road ride outs for those so inclined!!

Exclamation Sorry for hi-jacking this thread....

Ok, sorry folks for jumping in with a different issue into this thread, but I need some knowledge off some Irish bikers, and this thread has a few gathered already, so...
Basically I'm touring the Americas at the moment, South to North (35,400 km's in now already with a fair bit to go ), I finish up my trip in New York this Xmas, and I want to ship my bike home with me to Ireland when I'm done. I'm picking up a new bike soon for the rest of my trip, a Canadian-registered V-Strom 650, but the thing is I know nothing of importing a foreign bike to keep (new registration, tax, etc...), and there is always the worry that I won't be able to do it. Does anyone know what the story is with all that, or could they put me on to where I could find out?? It's to the South the bike must go too. Anyone with any info for me, please send me a PM so as not to flood this thread any more, it would be much appreciated. Pints all round for the man to help........

PS For those who don't know....
"Keek"... Norn Iron for "shite"
"Norn Iron".... Northern Irish for "Northern Ireland"
Sorry Monk, as an Irishman is only a Scotsman with his brains knocked out you should know that the word is "keech", as in "loch."

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.
