Good Luck, Pete and Bruce - aka JabezCleg

Pete and Bruce!

Can't believe you're sneaking off, can't believe you've beaten me out of the door, can't believe you've sold a business, emptied and rented a house, bought and prepped two new bikes in less time than it's taken me to fail my bike test. Twice...

Kids, have an amazing trip. Take your time, look out for each other, take a million pictures. Sleep when you're tired, eat when you're hungry, and never, ever ride off-road at night. Speed is the enemy of reflection.

Keep in touch here, there, everywhere. Thanks for your friendship in sunny Manchester, look forward to seeing you both out on the Latin American road in 2010. Ish...

Vaya con dios, companeros. Allah ma'ak, habibi. Bonne route y bonne chance, camarades.

These are the days that must happen to you, too...

Hasta la proxima, suerte y amor,

Dan

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.
