So THIS is the intro forum!

I originally posted this in the bar not realising that there was an intro forum.... not off to a good start

Just sayin' hi, is all

I'm a long time road rider, based in Australia... not having done a lot of distance work except for one trip of about 2500km in five days and another of about 1200km in 2 days (in 40 degree C heat mind you and both trips were on low 'bar sportbikes). recently bought a 250 dirtbike to get the hang of this loose and bumpy road business.. planning a few weeks in Mongolia in the next couple of years hopefully all or part of which will be done on two wheels.. I'm still in the very early stages yet so not really looking for any specific advice right now.. browsing the forums, and this seems like a good place to hang out and bookmark! So see yaz round!

Welcome to HU!

Where to put the forums is a constant question - there's an argument for just about any forum to be at the top! It all depends on whether you're new, been around a long time, on a trip or at home looking for a little entertainment, or at home and planning a trip, or or or....

We're also in the process of redesigning the whole site, and are looking for volunteers to help out and give us some input.

For more and to volunteer, see:

Enjoy HU, I look forward to hearing about YOUR travels one day!

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.
