'2 Ride The World' Presentation. at Touratech USA 7th Sept' Seattle

...evening all.

I wasn't sure where this post should go. I guess someone will tell me if it should be somewhere else.

Lisa & I are arriving in Seattle next week and will be sharing our 'digital presentation' with Touratech USA at their head office.

Here's Touratechs blurb for the event:

Please join us for this exciting event - Friday September 7th at TOURATECH-USA. Door opens at 6PM (until 10PM). As always these shows turn into a great party, and Simon and Lisa will be no exception - they are fun people. We provide food and beverages - THIS IS A MOTORCYCLE PARTY!

Lisa and Simon will present a multi-media presentation with highlights and stories gathered during 4 1/2 years on the road. Starting in the U.K. in 2003 they have ridden their BMWs (R1100GS and F650GS) through 58 countries, across 4 continents and from the most Northerly point on Earth reachable by bike to the most Southerly.

Some of you may have read in the various forums and bike mag’s of the Adventure Rider that fell in the Amazon, repaired his bike and then battled another 3-weeks of jungle riding before reaching hospital and being diagnosed with a broken neck and receiving life saving surgery. This was ‘Simon’ and they talk in detail about the brutal reality of ‘Adventure Motorcycling’.

There exciting presentation of slides and video portrays there travels from deep inside the Arctic circle, to the fantastic city of Moscow, broiling in the heat of the Sahara, to the freezing tip of Ushuaia in Patagonia and then negotiating treacherous trails in the Amazon rain forest and riding towards (instead of away from) actively erupting volcanoes in Ecuador, just for the experience.

For more information on Simon and Lisa please see their well developed, and regularly updated web site. 2ridetheworld.com
Touratech- USA slideshow events are limited to 100 seats, and typically sell out. Tickets are refundable unltil Sept5

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.
