Why Come to a Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers Meeting?

You can meet people who don't think you're crazy for wanting to ride your bike to South America or Africa or across Asia, or even around the world! Admit it, all your 'normal' friends and most of your family fears for your sanity! So, this is your opportunity to meet the people who will encourage you in that craziness, share their experiences and advice on how to do it, and maybe you'll meet them again in Mongolia or Timbuktu!

Some comments from other meetings we've had around the world:

"Huge thanks to all of you for the super job done. It was great to meet people we have read about, to hear their stories, the food was wonderful and very well organized, and the location a delight for those of us who have never been there! Hopefully we can make it again...happy travels all!"

"I don't even have plans to go ride around the world, but the presentations and people were great and you guys did an awesome job!"

"Location was Killer! Organization of the event first rate."

"WOW what a fun group of peeps. Of course it never hurts to be into bikes and travel and all but we had such a good time. So cool to chill with folks that just want to get out and ride it all. Fun Fun Fun!"

"I have not done much travelling so it was like visiting with a world traveller - Presenters were very approachable."

"Great atmosphere and camaraderie, especially at dinner time, and interesting presentations."

The Plan

The plan is simple. Show up on Thursday or at the latest Friday afternoon, meet people and setup. Travel Presentations and Tech clinics are planned throughout the meeting, starting Thursday night. More Detailed Schedule here.

  • One couple, one bike, 30 countries in 14 months
    • Quirien Wijnberg, doschinos.net
      Our travels on our bike starting from United Arab Emirates through Europe, to Canada via South and Central America

    • Andree Crepeau

Kids on the road

My husband and I are 65 years old. We had done a fair amount of biking before the kids came along. Figuring we wanted our kids to have parents for a while we quit the dangerous stuff for 20 years. When I finished my chemotherapy I woke up one morning with this crazy idea that the 9 year old twins needed a "coming of age" ritual, like a nice long trip. The next week my husband had bought 2 bikes and the rest is history!

  • Two Ways Down.
    • Bill Hooykaas and Greg Powell
      Tip to tip in the Americas. Two friends head out to Ushuaia in 2011, one rode solo, one with GlobeBusters. We'll discuss the pros and cons of each method, so bring your questions!

      Bill: "I have been riding BMWs non-stop since 1972 and a BMW MOA member for nearly 35 years now, and have well over 1 million kilometres in various saddles. I am very slowly working my way around the world over the span of a lifetime (funny how raising a family and having a job can delay things). I rode Europe and parts of North Africa on a BMW 75/6 that I bought new in Rotterdam in 1974 after finishing school. I have now gone tip to tip in the Americas, and the only piece missing will be the remainder of Africa. I will have then completed my longitudinal RTW in the footsteps of Grant and Susan and others who followed. I hope to finally complete this journey by 2014 so that my 40+ year BMW RTW dream will be complete. Join me now as I take you along, on this, my recent ride to Patagonia."

Bill Hooykas

Greg: "I bought my first motorcycle in 1981 (a Honda Z50 minibike) and my second motorcycle 26 years later (Yamaha V-Star 650) and 2 years ago the Honda Varadero. (Amazing how getting 3 accounting degrees, married and divorced interferes with the important things in life – motorcycle travel). I have ridden various rented motorcycles in Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand) while on short vacations. Finally in 2011, 3 months after getting my full M license, I quit my job, sold my house and left for a journey across the Americas. I rode from Toronto to Newfoundland, then to Alaska and all the way to Ushuaia Argentina for a total of 65,500 kilometres over 10 months. I am now addicted to motorcycle travel and have returned to Canada to make money so I can do another trip. My next trip will most likely be Russia, Eastern Europe and into the Middle East. Not sure what bike I will take but I am thinking of buying a Ural in Russia and keeping it through the Eastern Europe part, then perhaps a Honda Transalp."

Greg Powell

  • Highlights of Peru
    • Jody Hatch

  • Re-entering the Workforce
    • Greg Powell
      How to re-enter the workforce after a long motorcycle adventure! Everyone will tell you that you'll never get a job when you come back since you're obviously a flake... but is that true? HU has MANY stories of travellers coming back and getting a BETTER job than they had before. How did they do it? Come and find out!
      Greg says: "I was given a lot of advice, both good and bad, before and after my trip about re-entering the workforce. I think that sharing this advice would be helpful and I don't think it matters what kind of a job people are looking for, professional, blue collar etc. There are some real 'Do's and Don'ts' and helpful tips to be passed along. Today I signed an employment offer as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for a Canadian diamond mining company and my trip, in part, contributed to me getting the job."
  • My Top Three Annoyances from Our Trip!
    • Shu Liang, doschinos.net

  • Free to be Me!
    • Liz Jansen

    • Jeffrey says:
      • "Worked as a BMW and Ducati tech for a number of years until 2002 when I opened Detroit Eurocycles, a multi-line dealership featuring Moto Guzzi, Aprilia, Vespa, Piaggio, MZ, KTM, and a couple other great brands that don't sell well. 6 good years later after establishing a great reputation for the shop, we were forced to close due to the poor local economy. Went to work for Powerlet as Director of Marketing and then Dealer Development / Sales manager.
      • I am a long time motorcyclist dipping into Long Distance Touring, trail riding, Adventure touring, SuperMoto, and my biggest passion - Vintage Roadracing. I have been competing in AHRMA since 2004 and in 2010 even won an AMA #1 plate in Vintage 125 Grand Prix. While I have a lot of miles and motorcycles under my belt, my Adventure destinations have not been anything too exotic so far as I have 2 young boys at home that keep busy with Hockey and Scouts. I am fortunate that I travel quite often on my motorcycle in the name of work.
      • Current main ride is a 93 BMW R100GS PD. Racebikes - 1978 Moto Guzzi Lemans Vintage Superbike, 1970 Honda CB175, 1966 Aermacchi CRTT factory road racer Others - 2 73 Moto Guzzi Sports that have LSR records and AMA Superbike history, 1969 Moto Guzzi Ambassador, 1973 Moto Guzzi Eldorado with Steib sidecar, 1986 Ducati/Cagiva Alazurra, 3 2002 MZ 125's (SM, and 2 FunX), Aprilia SR50, 78 Moto Guzzi Lemans, and a couple other odds and ends. Yes, I am sick but it is ok."

  • Basic Roadside Repair
    • Kevan Ibbotson, Canada
      The English would call it bodger repair or us Canadians might call it a "farmer fix" but basically it means "How do I get my bike back on the road so I can get to the next town with a qualified mechanic to get it fixed properly". Designed for the novice rider who has little mechanical skills and who is concerned about having to make that dreaded roadside repair. Does duct tape or WD 40 actually fix everything? No, but you'd be surprised what will plug a leaking radiator. We will go over basic mechanical applications of the motorcycle: fuel, electrical and cooling systems, and how to diagnose their failure. What tools and repair materials to carry with you and how to use them to find out why your bike has quit working. More importantly we will review how to use on hand items to get yourself back on the road.

  • Managing Your Money While You Travel

      Casting yourself into the great vastness of motorcycle travelling means lots of fund and memories. But money is the fuel that keeps the gas tank and belly full, and puts a roof over your head. This presentation will give you practical ideas for managing your money while you are "out there."
  • Bears, a humorous insight into the do's and don'ts!
    • Nevil Stow, Canada,
      Putting you and bears into perspective from a motorcycle camping stand point."
      Nevil has worked as a Mountain Guide in the past in the Banff area. He has encountered many bears during his 14 years in Canada and,while he is not a biologist or any other form of "ologist", would like to share his knowledge and experiences gained in the field with anyone who could be bothered to listen!
  • Your NEW bike doesn't fit you!
    • Grant Johnson
      Ergonomics! When you pickup your new bike, did they take the time to make it fit you? You'll learn the amazing difference a properly setup bike makes to your riding fun.
