Yup.. Wims place.

Go to the big (now disused) railway station .. It's a big bus station at the front now.

A dirt track followes the track. Down that track is Wimms place. He has camping/hostel and some good contacts in town.

Just saw the post, It is a bit late but...
Judging from your nick you probably have a Landy, right?
If so your best bet is Mitchell Cotts, N9 00.926 E38 44.677
Accross the street on the second floor you will also find the only independent parts dealer in Addis.
Cheers

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.
