Bike Accident. Need lift from London area if possible.

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately I had a minor accident whilst off roading a little while ago. Nothing serious, but I am in a leg brace for six weeks more.

It's a long shot, but is anyone intending to travel up by car from the London area? Riding pillion or even driving myself is totally out of the question.

Am more than willing to chip in for fuel!

I hope someone can help as I'm supposed to run one of the breakout sessions on Saturday evening.

Email on matt.oneill@REMOVETHISimarco.com or Tel: 07815 876 904 if there's a chance.

Thanks very much,

Matt

Anyone with a car please contact me as well - we have 170 t-shirts to go up, and I'm on the train! For an idea of size, it's 4 average cardboard boxes, or two good sized suitcases.

4 bikes could also do it, one bike per box - but they have to be there Friday 3:00 latest.

Thanks for the help, Grant

Can't help with a lift but maybe able to help with the shipping of the t-shirts if they can be delivered up to a week before the event?

Are they in London at the moment?

Have another offer in progress to get them there, would be good to have a backup. Can be picked up anytime after Sunday afternoon, in Islington.

thanks, Grant

Anyone can get poor Matt up to the meeting?

Grant,

My options for shipping the T-shirts from London to Derbyshire are slightly limited. If my help is needed, I need to know sooner rather than later. I'm off to Berlin on Saturday, returning Tuesday evening.

My last opportunity to collect them would be Friday 17th June as I have a driver in London that day who could collect them & bring them to Oxford before forwarding them to the meet site sometime the following week.

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.
