Is it too late?

G'day All,
On an impulse I'll fly over if it's not too late.

Is it too late?

Should I just rock up and take my chances?

Thanks in anticipation.

s,
build

Flights just jumped up in price. Can anyone tell me if registrations are still available on site? I don't want to waste the airfare and time if it's too late.

Many thanks.

First Perth meet huge success!

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who made our first Perth Horizons Unlimited meet such a huge success! We had nearly 100 people attend, way beyond our initial expectations, and despite some rainy weather (including some bike stands sinking into the sand leading to a couple of bikes have a little sleep!), the event ran pretty smoothly. We had awesome talks and great discussion sessions and workshops. Everyone chipped in to keep the place amazingly clean and the event running smoothly, and as I've come to expect of motorbike travellers, were very well behaved :-)

The biggest heartfelt thanks to my fellow organising committee peeps for making this amazing event happen, and to Grant and Susan for being there and all their support. What a great community we have over here, and some incredibly well-travelled people too!

Perth Inaugural Meeting - huge success! 2014 ?

Can I echo Tam's words and publicly acknowledge the significant work she put in to make the meet such a success. When the Perth group met some months ago to start to plan the meet, our expectations were perhaps 35-40 people, so to get almost 100 was way beyond even our wildest dreams.

I would also like to thank the significant contribution from the other committee members, the speakers, workshop contributors, the volunteers, Grant and Susan - you are all an inspiration.

We will be meeting for an event wrap up in a couple of weeks time and considering the next event, so watch this space.

regards Ewen MacGregor

Hi guys over there in WA.

I've just checked out the photos and I am so jealous. The numbers are amazing given that this was the first one in WA. Looks like a great weekend and the venue looks brilliant; a credit to Ewen and the volunteer team. Have to do my best to make it over next year. How did those black tyre levers/bead breakers work? I've been looking at a set myself and interested in other people's feedback first.

Regards,

Shane

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80G/S.

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.
