Thanks for that - now all i have to do is find a copy!

we're at 511 registered already... so if you're talking to anyone who wants to go, it's the first 500 paid.

dunno whether to be happy or sad at having to limit the numbers!

Just read this copy of the magazine. Fame at last! Annoying though that an innocent reply to a question about riding without a screen looks totally naff in print when on its own and out of context.

Thumbs up Biker Britain

Anyone at last years meet may be interested in Nick Sanders book 'Biker Britain' too. It covers the 2006 HU event within the coffee table style book. You may see your bike in the pics. Expensive to buy on-line, much better direct from Nick if he's at an event near you. Covers lots of other interesting UK motorcycle events / lifestyles.

Also looking forward to this years coverage in - I think this is right Grant? - MCN (nothing yet though) Ride and Bike mags at least. Excellent!

I'll swear I saw Nick sat in a red van trying to flog his books at this year's HU UK meeting. Can anyone confirm the sighting?

Yes Nick was there in a red van........unless it was his twin doing a bit of filming by the look of it.

He deffo was, but unless you can time travel too late to buy it there :-0

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.
