Welcome to HU Ed & Susie.

Lots of info here for you to digest. Make sure you get one of the HU meetings although you may miss the Dayboro one if you leaving in June. There is going to be one in Victoria next year, which would be well worthwhile attending.

Join the Brisbane HU email list, for local rides and gatherings (although its been a bit quiet of late.)

Hd lunch at the Kandanga pub last week. ;-)

Welcome,happy travels and enjoy

Hi You two,
We are just ending our RTW. It is well worth the effort. Great sights, adventure and people. Welcome to the club!

HU is a great resource for research and updates. We've presented at three HU meetings, attended 4 and they are great for meeting like minded people. If you want any more, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We'll be back in Aus in Feb, home in Melbourne in March.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80 G/S motorcycle.

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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
