Hello HU



Hello everyone

I am registered and lurking around since a little while and just found out I never said even Hello here. What a pity

So my name is Thomas, I was born in Germany (Dortmund) 34 years ago. Now I live (and work) in Switzerland,near Berne.
Those alps are just awesome


And here I am:


I am kinda new (a bloody newbie, to be honest) to this let's call it "long distance travelling". Since 2007 I love to scout the european countries on 2 wheels.
Done some in your eyes (propably) smaller rides around CZ, RO, DE, AT, CH, PL, SWE and CH and still wanna see more.


On this one I also want to say "Thanks!" to all your great information and stories. With every sentence I read I am more and more infected.
Pretty sure I'll be back when I start planning my next trip direction east.

Lots of questions here.
Like: How do you go travelling 6 months, how do you pay your bills at home AND your travels...mostly beginner questions as you see


Looking forward to more...


Save travels out there
Tom

You can go to the German meeting at Oberliebersbach near Heidelburg at the end of the month.

There are threads on HU if you look around to help you with your question.

Susan and Grant Johnson Read more about Grant & Susan's story

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.
