HUWA Australia Day Ride & BBQ

Let's make the HUWA community more than just an annual meet! Join us for a ride & BBQ on Australia Day. OverlanderAE will lead an easy road-ride through the Perth Hills via Kalamunda, Canning Dam & Jarrahdale. Otherwise, get some friends together, organise your own journey & post it on the HUWA Facebook group. Want to involve the family? You ride, but send them along in the car - what more could you want?! Exact BBQ location will be pot luck on the day :-)

When: Australia Day, Thursday January 26th
Ride Time: Meet at OverlanderAE* 8.30am for coffee - stands up at 9am
BBQ: starts around 11am at Serpentine Dam
Where: Serpentine Dam (https://www.watercorporation.com.au/...serpentine-dam)
What to bring: BBQ food, drinks, sunscreen, chairs & your travel yarns! OverlanderAE will provide sauces, oil, cooking implements & serviettes.

We'll have HU calendars for sale - only $25! CASH ONLY – LAST COPIES LEFT IN THE WORLD!

To build the HU community in WA, we'll be organising & encouraging others to lead weekend trips so we can all get out there, learning to ride with luggage, practicing on all types of roads & meeting with like-minded travellers. Join the HUWA community via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/850039635112751/) & the HU communities (Horizons Unlimited Travellers Communities introduction | Horizons Unlimited) to find out when trips are happening, or set up your own adventure!

*Overlander Adventure Equipment, 1/14-22 Farrall Road, Midvale 6056

Hope to see you there!

Tam & Xander

CHANGE OF VENUE - Noble Falls, Gidgegannup

Hi everyone, Serpentine Dam will be closed tomorrow due to fire risk, as are all the Perth Dams!

So the best back-up plan to still have a BBQ is Noble Falls in Gidgegannup. Location details at Gidgegannup Info - Noble Falls Walk Trail, straight off Toodyay Rd opposite the Noble Falls Pub.

Not as interesting a ride, but hopefully still a good get-together! The joy of travel is learning to be flexible when the situation suddenly changes ;-)

Cheers, Tam and Xander

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.
