Newbie from Berkshire UK...

hi all,

I am Lars a 35 yrs old German living in the UK for over 11 yrs now.
I have owned a view bikes over the years and currently have 5 (although strictly speaking 2 are the wife's)
BMW R1100S, R75/6, F650 and a little Honda CG125 and a Buell XB12X.

For those of you interested - I keep a website about my bikes and tours with loads of pictures...feel free to have a look:
My Motorbikes - Home

Chat soon.
Lars

Hello Lars;
Welcome to the HUBB. I've checked out your web site, very impressive.
I'm a member of the International Motorcyclists Tour Club (IMTC), the oldest club in the world that is dedicated to motorcycle touring, perhaps you would be interested in us?
We operate on three levels, firstly as a local bike club. The national club is split into 5 regions, they organise Sunday rides, lunch or breakfast meets and trips to interesting places/events within their area. Secondly, we hold about four national hotel week-ends during the year, when members from all over the country descend on a hotel to chew the fat and plan their travels for the year. Finally, the international bit where members organise overseas tours for up to 20 people to participate in. This year we have shipped bikes to Australia, toured Northern Spain and Portugal for two weeks and there is a 10 day tour of Ireland to come.
The club is non-profit making, non-commercial enterprise so the tours and events are probably cheaper than you could organise yourself. We have a monthly magazine that informs members what is going on and gives them a chance to share their experiences with other members. We have several overseas reps (Canada, Germany, Italy, USA and Portugal) who can help if you need advice or assistance and we also have several foreign menbers based in the UK.
If you're interested check out the web site (not very good) at IMTC.org - Interational Motorcyclists Tour Club or your local meet is between 9:00 and 10:00 at the Waterfront Cafe, Benson, just off the A329 on the first Sunday of the month, next meet tomorrow, 1st August.
I hope this is of interest to you and look forward to meeting you, perhaps.

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.
