Hi HUBB!

Great trip through West and East Europe, and Ukraine. Enjoying a couple of cold ones in Astrakhan in Russia before crossing into Kazakhstan on Monday. Same as before - if you're on the road on 2 or 4 wheels give us a toot if you see us (bright red UK registered Defender 110) or drop us a message.

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.
