27. New York - 1


New York, New York

I rode from Ann Arbor to New York using back roads through Ohio,
Pennsylavania and New Jersey stopping over at Ebensberg for a night.

I stayed with a friend who made me very welcome, thank you
for your Hospitality

Times Square is not a square in the traditional sense - a flat open space,
it is instead a square made up of several blocks of buildings with
its heart at the intersection of 7th Ave, Broadway and 44/45th street

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.
