HU Queensland 2015 rideouts

Hi everyone,

Over the course of the last year, a few people have mentioned that they would be AOK to lead some group rides at HU Queensland 2015. If you are interested, please let me know. I'm looking to arrange up to four rides.

BTW, these ride-outs are nothing more than a ride amongst friends, not fully fledged, catered, tour rides. Anyone interested in going for a tarmac rap up to Killarney, meet at the front gate at 9:00 am; that sort of thing. Nonetheless, we do need to do a small amount or preparation.

Thanks,

Shane

Online pre-registrations

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that HU Queensland 2015 is now only about seven weeks away. If you are coming, it would be a huge help to get your online pre-registrations done so that we can book caterers and so on.

Thanks,

Shane

Room Accomodation

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately technology, the bain of every motorcyclist has caused some information to be missed on the website.

There is the option of room accomodation. The Outlook has dormitory style rooms, with twin beds in each and the cost is $43.00 per night, per bed. If you are on your own, you can have the room to yourself if you wish. If you are not on your own, you can share the room with your partner but be aware that the cost is per bed, not per room. The rooms don't have ensuites, you still need to go down the hall to the shower etc.

Its pay in cash when you get there and take a bed because we haven't had a chance to put this up and collect and so on. Anyhow, another option for those who do not want to camp.

If you haven't done an online pre-registration, please do so, it really helps with catering and all sorts of things.

Thanks,

Shane

Boonah 2015 one day ticket

Hi , Im interested in attending HU QLD this year and am wondering if there is a one day/ night entry pass . I am only available to attend Thursday night camping and all day Friday and hoping to keep my costs down . Will probably spend on food drink and merchandise so it may end up an expensive day for me . Thanks Dan

Hi Dan,

Great question. We have gone with a $25.00 half day and a $50.00 single full day price. That helps keep the cost down and helos us pay for expenses such as venue hire.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Shane

Exhibitors

Hi All,
Reposting this as I posted in the wrong place previously. The line-up of speakers is looking great, do we have a better idea of some of the exhibitors who will be showing their gear at the meet?
Thanks

Re: Exhibitors

Hi Troppy,

At this point, we have a handful only. These include:

Motorcycle Adventure Products. Adventure products and luggage solutions. Ron has the right gear for you. I know as that's where I get most of mine.

Reidon Industries. The fabulous foot throttle.

NSW Parks and Wildlife. They have a bunch of incredible adventure destinations available for us.

I am still waiting for several others to confirm, we have received verbal commitments throughout the year but not matching registrations yet.

Regards,

Shane

The HU Meeting at Boonah 24 - 27 Sept

Hi all,

Two things: 1. Great meeting as usual and very useful presentations
2. At the GPS session (David Hicks) I mentioned a useful link regarding a question on Routes using Garmin.

I mentioned I did not have grey hair until I started using Base Camp - only partially true. This posted information is well put together, the presentation is calm and is very useful.

I mentioned this site I have used with videos tutorials for Route creation.

The link is http://www.2wheelgeek.com/BaseCampResources.aspx
(This works on a PC)

OK Edit - Thankyou to Brad (post below) the link can be called up on a tablet (Android) but to play the video click on "watch in YouYube (top right first paragraph). This works on Android tablet using YouTube.

Alternatively use Google and search Stupid Base Camp Tricks. Click on the above web link (first find). The first video tutorial is on Routes. Other video tutorial is tracks.

I hope this is of assistance.

Thankyou to David Hicks for his presentation.

Mal_C

Hi all

My first time attending one of these meetings. Big thumbs up to all the people who took the time and effort to organise this event and make it run as smooth as it did. I really enjoyed myself and got a lot out of it.

Keep up the good work, look forward to going next time.

Hey Mal_C, I was in the room when you made the grey hair comment, everyone had a chuckle. The link you posted doesn't work on my iPad but the search info you suggested to put into google took me straight to the web page, cheers for that.

Brad

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
