Smile California Yosemite Travellers Meeting - Sept. 25-28, 2014!

We have some great news! The excitement of being on the road with adventure travel is growing leaps and bounds, and we have busted out of the seams of our beautiful venue at Cambria. We will have wonderful memories of the last three years at Camp Ocean Pines, but it's time to move on to bigger and better.

Our new venue is the Mariposa fairgrounds just outside of Yosemite that boasts gorgeous rides from every direction, like the famed Tioga Pass.

Flip Morton and Nicole Espinosa are co-coordinating HU14 with our help. All of us are thrilled to have plenty of presentation rooms, spacious landscaping for camping with choice of shade if desired, stadium space for demos, and a garden for socializing and late night HU fun.

This year our charity of choice is fellow adventure traveller Ron Grace's Lost For a Reason that raises funds for families and children in need in the places we love to ride. Nicole will be MCing the charity raffle once again on the Saturday night, so stay tuned for the vendors who will be contributing a bountiful selection of adventure goodies.

It's the closeness of our ever-growing adventure community that makes Horizons Unlimited what it is today, so please mark your calendars for September 25-28, 2014. Registration is now open with early bird rates at this link.


Thank you all for making HU California such a success. We hope to see you there in 2014!

All our best,
Grant, Susan, Flip, and Nicole

We might just attend this one also...

We're planning to arrive in Hallifax Canada just after the HUBB UK event and start our Americas tour from there so we should be able to make it!

We'll have a look at this, but I'm pretty confident we'll subscribe for this one and give again one hell of a presentation...

Hello from the north

Well! Hey Hey Hey! I am stoked, I am psyched and i am...... just...... me.
This will be so much fun..I have polished my presentations and the way I present myself (Not), and I hope I will be able to pass along my totally insane passion for riding.. It will not only be about riding in insane winter conditions but about our passion and also tricks on how to dress in winter Not many know how to efficiently. Sleeping in snow at -50 in the army teaches you a thing or two..
Normally I do not run out of things to say or write, but I am so excited that I am speechless.

I will also have a couple copies of my books for riders to look at. And I will sell them 2 for 1, shipping included in the Continental USA and Canada for this special event.
But I will take names and emails as well as addresses to do so. and ship them all when I get home..
I do not want to carry them in my bike.

Looking forward to be there..

Thumbs up Ca. Meeting

Last year was my first time attending A HU meet. It was a fantastic experience. I even went all the way and was presenter for it.
I look forward to seeing everyone this yr. and again have signed on to present.
What I experienced at their meet was a nice group of fellow riders who want to share their experiences and travel's.
Not a lot of vendors but IMO that made it all the better .
Sorry nothing against vendors ( we own Home) but it was the on the road stories I wanted to hear and compare to our own travels.

See you in Sept.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

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.
