List of travel Books was on the Hubb , now missing

Hi Guys,

I was looking for a list of motorcycle books which was there on th HUBB earlier. I have tried search / advanced search, Google . website specific search and all the key words that I can imagine for the past one hour but I can't seem to find that list. I am not talking about the Horizons unlimited book list but another post on the HUBB with titles and authours.

I surely remember that there was a list of Motorcycle travel books on the HUBB. A list made by contributions from various members. At that time I did not make a copy of that list with me and now I am not able to find it. Does anyone else remember of such a list / has the link to the same.
Thanks to please share the same here

Hi Redbull,
Yeah, I know the one you mean but a search has been fruitless!

Thanks for the clarification

Stephano,
Well , I did search but not as precisely as you did. Anway the results seem different today ;-) Ha ha ha never mind thanks for the trouble.

Grant,
On that day I was trying with Search Titles only > giving keyword as Books and I was not getting the right results. Don't know why?

You know there are times when your comuter gives you trouble , and when you call the technician , everything's perfect. I guess this is one of those times.

I wanted to add a few more books to that earlier list so I was looking for that thread.
Thanks anyway,
Red Bull

No idea works fine for me! Came up first answer with your search.

Note that the HUBB search does NOT search the rest of the site - you need to use the top right search to search the site. The two WILL be integrated - but not yet.
