Hello all from Dorset.

After several weeks of reading on the HUBB, and a recommendation from a lass from Geordieland it was time to register!

I've recently purchased an F800 GS and looking forward to getting some good miles in next year overseas. No final decision made yet but either the Alps again, Eastern Europe or Morocco!

Last year was a failed adventure after just 1400 miles through the Swiss and Italian Alps to the Dolomites when the previously owned F650 decided it wanted a longer rest than we wanted it to have...like several weeks, and so it made way for the F8 this year.

I shall be keeping my eyes peeled within the Travellers Seeking Travellers section and having a general mooch about.

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.
