Sorry to be a big girl, but I can't make it as Greenmalishi says...

I've fractured some ribs and can barely breath, let alone ride..

I'm getting too old for all this lunacy... My body is getting fragile

Anyone selling a Pan European ??? lol

I ran full speed into some brick shit house of a guy who thought it would be better to stop me with his elbow than his face lol.

Hi Ted
I recall you missed a previous HU bike meet cos of your footy injuries. Maybe you need to take up a more gentle passtime like macrami or synchronised swimming .

Eh Up Dazco,

there's always an exception to the rule and you're it!

I'm not bad matey. Currently out of a job though but got everything crossed for a new position before too long.

I won't ask how you got injured at work, as it could by anything with your past records!

Heel quickly matey.

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.
