meandering on down

Well hello to everybody not going to the meeting by this thread. Well, actually, hello to anybody..............

Yep, coming ot the meeting as we still struggle to readjust to normal life! We went walk-a-bout last year and still suffer wanderlust after 26,385 miles of waking up, deciding where to go, then setting off. Damn. Just need to get more money and do it again............

You'll recognise us by the fact that one of us will be waving a white stick............the female one.............who is not riding the bike..................a very shiny white F800GS as it's new............

Regards

Bernard and Cathy

We'll be there (me + wife + Bobby our stuffed watchdog). Easily to spot: heavily overloaded BMW GSA with German license plates. We'll probably arrive on wednesday evening already.

is the ground at Ripley reasonably soft to pitch the tent, or will I need rock pegs to peg out the tent?

I`ll be 1 of those NOT riding a BMW ............................

recognition

I have no idea how I will recognise any of you. I will be on a black 05 Transalp and will have the Jolly Roger hanging from my Tent. Keith 1954, we did say we would meet up for a one day! Just look for the skull and crossbones....

Will do GM .. I will look out for that subtle clue to your whereabouts ..

Incidentally, you're bound to notice me too, as I'll be the one carrying a copy of the Times (tucked under my left arm) .. and wearing a fresh pink carnation in my buttonhole.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot .. I'll be riding up, from Oggieland, on my '05 silver ST1300 Pan-European.

See you there mate ..

I'll be there, but unfotunately not on the bike......my mate who is coming with me got knocked off his bike a couple of weeks ago and so now has a broken leg which means he can't ride or even go pillion.

I will be there - my first visit to the UK meet, though I met some of you at the Ace Cafe in February. I'm probably going to turn up ahead of the crowd on Wednesday.
Robin.

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.
