Hi there from Australia

Hi you'll thought I should drop in & say hi, get the introductions underway. I'm An Aussie & I love me bikes. Had a Vstrom 1000 a couple of years back & sold it get a GSXR. What a mistake that was. Anyway, I clock up a few K's on me Speed Triple & have ridden a fair bit up & down eastern seaboard of Australia. Am hoping to have the little XT 600 I have running & on the road in a couple of weeks. It'll be my get away bush bike. Hopefully I can upgrade if needs be in the future but am going for a big trip around Europe next year & as you can imagine the cash flow is a bit skinny. Anyhow that's all from me.

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.
