Malaria pills for Africa

Anyone going to Africa this year? I figured I'd get malaria at least once in the 9 months I was there without taking anything for preventing it, but never did.

I have a couple treatments of Coartem 20/120 with a 2010 exp. date I'm looking to 'pass on' for a big discount off original price.

Look me up at Ripley.

Huge thanks to all the Organisers, kudos to Austin Vince - the Voice of Reason ;-)

Looking forward to next year already...

Any appetite for a Midlands Micro Meet sometime later in the year..?

+ another 1

aside from thanks to everyone that organised and presented, a massive thanks to Grant for letting me have his spare inner tube, and the couple from Sunderland (sorry - crap with remembering names) that very kindly came out of their way to drop it off to me 4.5 miles outside of Ripley.

How thankful was I that I attended Grants 'how to change a tyre (tire?) presentation.

as you can see from the attached pic, there was no way a repair patch was going to fix 'that' tube

A huge 'Thank You' to Grant, Sue and the HU Team for a great weekend in Denby. The speakers were fantastic and I learned more in one weekend with fellow traveller's than I ever could in a lifetime on the Internet .... it's time to buy a new map and hit the road again.

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.
