I went 'Gold'

I spend a lot of my time at work browsing this site, I have met a lot of good helpful people from it as well as clashing with a few, which got me 2 infraction notices and 8 points

A reply from a fellow traveller to a problem can save you money and time, and I thought that apart from keeping me nearly sane, I thought I'd give a bit back, thus, I decided to take a 'Gold' membership, being on the HU site is a bit like being in a motorcycle club and ask yourself, instead of what I can take out of it, what can I put back? even as a contributing member it helps keep the site running.
Where would we be without HU ?
I just hope I don't 'hit the jackpot' and get a points ban!!.

Same with me, I was using the site so much I thought I ought to step up and make a contribution.

Thumbs up Gold is good

I have been gold every year for a while now, as well as spending a fair amount of time helping out on the HUBB, and hosting travelers and running four mini-meetings. It's all been great fun.

What I have learnt is that Grant and Susan are ice-bergs. You will only see a very small part of what they have to do to run this website.

Regards

Nigel in NZ

I agree! Thought I'd go gold just for the info and help I found just at a click away. Think there`s hardly a Stone unturned here!

Cheers Gav.

Don't forget that Contributing members feel exactly the same way.

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.
