Hello from North Rhine - Germany

Just posted to a Norway thread and realised I've never introduced myself.
So from a lurker to a user and mines an apple juice while your at the bar.
Expat living in Germany, just short trips and envy those who can go further.

Being a newby I stumbled over a mention of "Couch Surfers" is there somewhere to register your couch.

Huh! ...I was born and raised in Beckum, actually Neubeckum. Lived there up to my early 20's, until 1985. Rode my first bikes there too

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.
