Ciao HUBB from Giovannino!

Hi everybody,
I am Giovannino from Castelbuono, near Cefalù, in Sicily (Italy).
I live in a natural and beautiful park area, called Park of Madonie.
I am 33 y.o. and I travel by a generous Honda Varadero since 2001.
I am founder member of the Varadero Club Italia and Transalp Club Italia and I have organized many meetings in Italy.
Next week I will go to a ten days ride across Dolomites and Grossglockner (every year I spent some days in the Dolomites!).
I working now to organize my next travel in North America from may 2010 to the end of july 2010 and H.U. is a better place to take infos!
If you will meet a Varadero with a big 054 on the windshield... that's mine!

So, some pictures about me:

Here in Gdansk (PL) with Mr. Buzek, at the moment president of European Commission.


Here in Umbria with some friends of VCI and TCI


Here at work during "Honda for Cameroun", in Dro (near Riva del Garda)

So, if you want, you can add me to your friends on Facebook at Giovanni Lupo | Facebook

If you are planning to ride in Sicily, please let me know!

All the best guys, and see you soon on the road!

Giovannino

Ciao Giovannino!

Welcome to the HU - THE place to be on the web :-)

Where you there at the VIM Meeting in Sicily in 2006? I was there - meaning, I was in Sicily back then but on a BMW. I'd just traded my 'dero into that Bayerische Brute (before I started my Guzzi frenzy for real) and was originally going to the VIM, but stayed in Capo d'Orlando for a week instead. I'll be back! Sicily is THE place to be IRL!

Sempre Sicilia!

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.
