Hi from Western Australia

I've been lurking for a while so thought it was time to join in!

I'm from SW England but live in the middle of nowhere, Western Australia. Until a few months ago I was riding GSX-R's, but due to a lack of corners (and terrible roads) I decided to get myself a dual sport bike. Since then, I haven't stopped smiling... even when I binned it this morning I got up laughing

No big rides under my belt, but I've ridden most parts of England & Wales. I've also started to tick off destinations in Australia.

Cheers,

Andy

Hey Andy,

Let me know if you guys head up to Broome/Derby way. I'm at the end of the Gibb River Road and itching for the wet to pass so I can go and explore the Kimberleys!

Cheers
Paul

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.
