Win over £150's worth of bike care and cleaning products

It's time for another Opie Oils competition!

In something of a reprise of our competition back in June, we're giving away over £150's worth of motorbike care and cleaning products... but this time you stand more chance of a prize because there's the added bonus of 3 runners up prizes, each of a £50 voucher to spend at Opie Oils.
Free to enter, no purchase necessary.

Read enough? Scroll down for the link to the competition entry form, or read on for more details...

It's a great prize, containing everything you need to get your bike looking the business!

There's a wheel cleaning kit, polish, visor cleaner and a selection of aerosols - 16 items in all from Muc-off, Motul, Meguiars and Castrol.

How to win it?

Easy! Just let us know the make of the "mystery bike" on our web site (or car, if you feel so inclined) and fill in the competition entry form with your answer. If you like,
you can tell us what model it is too, but you don't need to... and there are no bonus prizes!

It's free to enter and there's no commitment to buy anything, so give it a go!
You've nothing to lose... except, as we said before, a whole weekend spent cleaning and polishing your car if you're the winner ;-)

The competition's not open for long, so get your skates on... last entries by close of play this coming Sunday, 4th October 2009, please.

If you're the winner, you'll get all this:

A Muc-Off Bike Spray aerosol (to "protect, preserve and freshen")
A can of Muc-Off Disc Brake Cleaner (as above; shifts brake dust, oil and dirt)
A Muc-Off Ultimate Wheel and Tyre Kit (Muc-Off Nanotech Wheel Cleaner, Muc-Off Wheel Seal plus 3 brushes, a sponge, a cloth, 2 sponge applicators and a nice tub to put it all in)
3 x 1 litre bottles of Muc-Off bike cleaner (with "nano-technology", apparently)
A Muc-Off visor cleaner and cloth pack (shine & protect plastic parts)
A Motul Wash & Wax dry cleaner aerosol (comes in a handy wallet thing)
A Motul Carbu-Clean carburetor spray cleaner aerosol (...it's a carb cleaner)
A can of Motul Tyre Repair (compact, handy size)
A Castrol Chain Lube Racing aerosol (brand new product & the ultimate chain lubricant - use on or off road)
A can of Motul Air Filter Oil (we'll swap this for something else if your bike doesn't have a foam filter)
A tin of Meguiars Cleaner Wax (cleans and polishes)
2 Meguiars Even-Coat applicator pads (for applying the wax)
A Meguiars Microfibre Mitt
A bottle of Meguiars Gold Class Bug & Tar Remover (motorbikes seem to get more than their fair share of insect splatter!)

... so that'd keep you busy.

There's also the option for the winner to substitute the product selection above for a more car-focussed prize instead. Contact us for details if that's of specific interest.

Rules? Well, Opie Oils staff can't enter :-( The prize is as stated and there's no cash alternative, entries received after Sunday 4th October won't count and just the one entry each please!

Good luck!

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.
