Hi

I'll be riding up on the Thursday on my TDM 850.

Just got back from a trip down through Belgium and Luxembourg and into Germany for the German TDM owner's club meeting.

See you there.

Plan is for me to knock off work on Wed and ride up on Thursday morning.

Assuming that

A) My bike is fixed

B) Lazy gits in HR have actually processed my days off.

I will be with a rather fetching turquise and white Bmw r100 gspd.

A68

Anyone else from Edinburgh way heading to Ripley tomorrow..?

We're planning a leisurely ride down the lovely A68, hopefully in glorious sunshine..!

We should be at the Camien cafe, 10mls or so South of the border between 10 & 11, come and say hello..!

This will be my 4th UK meeting and I still can't wait..!

I'll be heading down from Glasgow tomorrow...on the train! Ha ha. Not the first time either - less reliable that the CCM but slightly more comfortable (and faster).

Coming Down From Inverness !

Taking a slightly different route - thought A7 and camp somewhere near Alston and head for Ripley on Thursday - good to see there will be a good show from north of the border!

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.
