I'm in!

I'm pretty sure I've got nothing else on that weekend, looking forward to it!
Probably come down for Sat trail ride and stay the night.

I'd do a talk if you're struggling to find anyone else, but if you can find someone actually worth listening to, they should take priority ;-)

I would love to toddle along and am only down the road from BaldBaboon in Aldershit.

I'm afraid I won't know if I'm working that weekend until a week or so before.

Can't say for certain but dates are currently free and I enjoyed last year's meet.

I could do a presentation on Orkney and the Outer Hebrides if it's of interest?


And this, believe it or not, is the Outer Hebrides!

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.
