Cool Europe July 2006

Hey I'm bumbing around europe for a couple of weeks, on my ZX6R. Between 7-21st July. Gonna take in a bit of Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Belgium, Holland. Oh and I plan on visiting some of the war memorials (gotta pay my respects wasn't for those guys we wouldn't have the freedom to tour.) Taking in some sun sea and sand, with plenty of sites too. No accomodation planned I'll get my head down where ever I can. So anyone gonna be there in July would be really good to hear from you.

theres the Stella Alpina in Bardonecchia (italy near Briançon) the second sunday of July and the advrider eu event (but quite a few people coming over from the US and some from this site including myself) after the Stella. Its principally an off road event, but as its in the Dolomites then you can always entertain yourself and meet up for a or two.

Course if you find yourself down Barcelona way, look me up.

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.
