Hi There

Just thought I'd introduce myself.I have just bought a 1987 xt 600 Tenere so thought I'd better join up as I'm sure to have lots of dumb questions I need answers to.I have been after an adventure bike for a while and just couldn't decide what to buy.Nothing seemed to fit the bill.Most bikes were too heavy for gravel roads,some too fragile and complicated,small petrol tanks etc.Then I spotted the Tenere on Trade-me and the penny dropped,this was just what I needed.I had to pay more than I wanted to on the Auction but there were a lot of people after it.It's a bit ropey but rides really well.I like it a lot.I'm just going to do some cosmetic/maintenance stuff to it for the moment and will try to make sensible improvements to it as I go along.Anyhow,bye for now and safe riding.

Smile Welcome Big SIS.

HI Sylvia,

Welcome to the H.U.B.B. thought i would say hello to you over the pond as no one else has (make people feel guilty now he he) hope you find what you want on here and if you dont then it cant be worth finding out. If you want to know how to find a nut (plenty on here) on your bike or how to go to the moon on your bike, well some one on here will know how.

Ride safe..

Roi. n Bron.

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

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.
