Have a great time folks, I just can't believe i'm not going to make it as I only live about 20 miles away.

Unfortunately i'm just back from lisburn for work and i leave again at 8.30 in the morning , so this sucks.

Still next year sould be in time for our current state of planning so i'll see you all then, just post plenty of details for those who can't attend.

A huge thank you to Drew, Liam and crew for organising what was a fantastic weekend. Everything about it was first class. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks also to the presenters for sharing their great experiences. I hope it's the first of many.

Meant to post this earlier so apologies guys for the delay.

Enjoyed that.
Ireland and especially Northern Ireland was a revelation. So much more biker friendly than England.

Stena ferry was good too...Fastnet Swansea Cork...not so.

Anyway, ladies and gents, thanks for a very friendly and well run event.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

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.
