A short while back the editor of The Riders Digest magazine asked me to scribe a write up on HU and the HUBB UK. 'Good grief' I thought. 'How on earth can I fit everything into one article?'

Well the truth is, I can't. Too much going on, but I've aimed it at people who may well never have heard of HU and the HUBB UK.

Fingers crossed I've done us all justice with the article. It starts on page 87

The link to the magazine, which is an online mag and free, is here: The Rider's Digest - The Best Motorcycle Writing Anywhere On The Internet Their quote by the way, but perhaps they have a point. You have to say. The magazine always challenges and they always have a big mix of all sorts of articles from all sorts of motorcycling areas.

You may have noticed that The Riders Digest will be with us at the HUBB UK. Good news. Snag the editor, Dave Gurman to have a chat!

Vote for your preferred Region

The HUBB UK schedule is going to include three 90-minute discussion sessions - each one about a different region of the world. The idea is to provide an opportunity for people who've travelled in each region to share their experience and advice with those who are planning trips and have lots of questions.

Each session will have a moderator to help things along, but other than that they'll be completely open and very informal.

We'd like to leave the choice about which regions get covered entirely up to you, so we've set up a simple voting page here.

Just pick the region you're most interested in and click the button. The three regions that get the most votes will be the ones that go in the event schedule.

Thanks.

Hi Lonepilgrim, good question thanks. There's going to be lots happening. Iain is already working on the schedules. He will be posting about the schedule in advance but he'll no doubt post what time things are kicking off presentation wise on the Thursday anyway. It's worth getting there in good time if you can.

Good grief! It's only 146 days to go before the HUBB UK kicks off. Time is whizzing by at a rate of knots! It's all coming together splendidly though - lots of new presenters and trade companies are now signed up.

HUBB UK 2013 Donington Park - 30th May to 2nd June

And hey, if you are planning to come but you've not booked yet, remember that you need to pre-register and pay before the 31st of Jan to snag the £20 discount.

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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
