Tragic news

I have to pass on the sad news of the death of Ron Varey or RiviRon as he liked to be known. He is the guy whose bike (Red Dominator fully kitted out for his overland trip ) was on stage at this years UK meet. This means Ron was unable to make his personal grand trip by bike and so tells us all our time here is not infinite.
Go out and do it now, with Ron’s blessing.

I remember Ron well - great guy, he'll be missed I'm sure.

Our best wished to the family.

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.
