Ok i will see if i get any more feed back if not i will go with that date . As the numbers look quite small i will probably put it on at my place as theres less work involed . I will try to comfirm the dates next week as i have to make sure im not working also. Looked at Bill & Becs website & was impressed & am looking forward to hopefully meeting both of you . I see this as more of a small gathering of friends some i know & some i have yet to meet . As its at my place if people want to Sleep in the house then thats ok . If folkes who are coming could let me know like i said theres 3 spair bed rooms 2 doubles & 1 twin plus 2 sofas & the caravan just bring sleeping bags or you can put a tent in the garden . If you can let me how many of you are staying it would also be handy. Or theres always B&Bs .
Cheers Kev

If you took your wife for a romantic weekend in my caravan i think a divorce would be on the cards its not much but its better than a tent (just) i could make up a spare room in the house if you like but if your wife is not into the bike/travel thing in a big way i dont think she would have much fun . But be warned my house is alot like a 80s biker house only without the skulls & jossticks .(NOT POSH)
Cheers Kev

room for someone new?

Hi,
I'm new to going travelling on a bike although not new to seeing the world. currently have a ZX6R and an old Zephyr but that's about to change as a get a Vstrom and go for a monster tour of europe next year.
I live the right side of london to get to Kent...would be nice to meet folk with same interests although I might ask too many questions
Um - no tent - but I'll come on my bike of course. If you go off road then I can sleep of the hangover so no probs there....

Cheers now Olly

Olly your most welcome to come & ask as many questions as you want. It looks like it will be a very small meeting so i might just make it an afternoon & night down the pub unless anyone wants more ? Your welcome to crash at my place just bring a slleeping bag . It dosnt look like we will have hardly any off road bikes turning up also with the current Blue Tongue outbreak not sure which lane might be open so i might put the off roading off to next time unless anyone wants it ? So at the moment it looks like arrive some time Saturday & go home Sunday . Maybe i should call it a micro meet ? If people want to come on Friday then let me know & i will sort somthing .
Cheers Kev

Hi Kev
I finish my nights Saturday morning so we plan to call in for a couple hours in the afternoon/evening. If you not have enough people then don't hold it just for us - we can meet for a another time.

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.
