First Post

well what can i say i have been watching this forum for a few weeks, and never have i found a place where people are so bonded and helpfull ( its truly Beautifull ). restores your faith in the human race.
this is truly a place that i will support in anyway i can, no question.
so a little about me
i have ridden bikes since the age of twelve am now in my early forties ( mid 20's mentally ), i have worked in bike shops so have some knowledge of repair etc.
i was a dispatch rider for 5 years ( best job i ever had )
my father was a SERE instructor for the military so i have many skills there. my mother was a circus performer so i am quite good at knife throwing and fire eating ( yeah that comes in handy )
i have never stopped travelling really, have travelled over a lot of europe, north Africa, but will now be looking to travel to more exotic locations, quite fancy India.

i have a Triumph Tiger 53 plate which i will be modifying for travel.
i love life,living, hearing peoples tales.having a or two / three / well maybe four ?
i am also like many of you out there who shrug off the bad stuff and live for the good stuff.
i have met and broke bread with many different people over the years and i have loved every minuite of it.
so once again a big Hello, and if i can help with anything please shout.

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.
