Gelungene Fusion (successful fusion)

Translation: Successful Fusion The almost three hundred participants of the 18th Horizons-Unlimited-Deutschland-Treffens could look forward to the longest weekend of the fathers on best weather. The event, which is mainly aimed at motorbike-close and long-distance travelers, once again pitched their tents at the Pfrimmtal campground near Worms. In addition to this, the exhilarating combination of multimedia travels and workshops were offered. New was the integration of the Wormser Tenere meeting into the overall concept. After 30 years and 25 successful events the organization effort was too big for the Yamaha Aficionados.

There were more than enough crowds with the travel enduristan, from which the bulk of the Horizons-Unlimited visitors were recruited, and so it was only a small step to the common exchange of gasoline and travel stories.

The feedback on the meeting in the meeting has been positive so far and so there will be a combined event on the Ascension of the Ascension in 2018. Anyone who wants to get a taste of the whole thing before, and want to sniff away wanderlust, can do this at the Horizons-Unlimited autumn meeting from 28 to 30 October in the same place.

    Article about Motorcycle Travellers Meetings and where to find information on travel by motorcycle. On the second page are a few paragraphs about our website.

    Wenn jemand eine Reise plant, dann hat er viele Fragen, jedoch ist es nicht immer einfach, die Antworten darauf zu finden. Eine gute Quelle sind Fernreise-treffen, auf denen sich die Zunft der resienden Motorradfahrer zum Erfahrungsaustausch treffen kann

    Rough translation:

    If someone plans a journey, then there are many questions to ask, however it is not always easy to find the responses to it. A good course is "Travel Meetings," at which travellers meet the guild of the travellers to exchange experience.
