Smile Redbird - new to The Hubb

Hi All
Like others i have been having a very interesting read and have now gone the next step to say hello. I've not done much bike travel but we all have to start somewhere. I have done Central Coast to Tassie about 3000kms worth. Didnt rough it at all that time but am keen to travel long and far on a budget in the future.
I have been gathering the camping gear after reading info on here. Now looking for a tent! definatley bit by the bug. Just need to link up with others in same state of mind.
Cheers Redbird aka Jill

Thanks for the welcome. I am trying to get to the HU meeting, just sorting it with work etc.
Yes give the camping gear a run is a good option.
Cheers Jill

Good luck with sorting the time off work!
I will be leaving Sydney on Thursday the 7th June and hoping to be in Dayboro on Friday mid afternoon.

Hope to see you there or on the road somewhere

HU meeting

Hi Joe
All should be good with work, fingers crossed.
Do you know which route you are taking? and i see you have a bike collection! I will be on my trusty red triumph sport.
I havent had a good look yet at options jsut know it wont be Pacific Hwy. Drove to Byron Bay recently and the road works and speed zone changes are a nightmare.
Cheers Jill

Hi Jill
Welcome to the Hubb
Im traveling up to the HU meeting from Adelaide via Wagga wagga up to New England Hwy, so may see you on the road. Look for a SA K100rt dark Blue colour.
If dont see you on the road see you there.

Cheers Jill

Hi Jill
Yes attended at the Cooroy meet, you meet lots of interesting people and get lots of info.
The event is well organized and worth the trip.
Compared to some of the people my trip is just a short warm up.
See you there, as l tend to wander, but will be there thursday night.

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.
