pamsmcride boxing day 2017

Just a bit more explaining - Yes all members will be able to see the total being raised on the website, see total Ive raised to date. For those that are interested they will also be able to follow Me on SPOT TRACKER, also My wife Trish who will be in the Supply car (carrying merchandise for sale, registration forms and signage etc) will do her best to post daily updates on progress of the Ride on the website also. This Ride is not a follow the leader (riders can travel as they want, and meet up at nite or at specific promotional venues during the day), but you can ride with Me. All riders will have Telstra compatible mobile phones, no riding before sun up and none after sundown. Each morning and nite a briefing will be held to assist in a smooth and safe Ride for all. If anyone wants to follow along or join up at any stage in a car/caravan/camper they are most welcome - no charge - people on bikes are the only ones that register and pay. If you want to ride a sidecar and the sidecar carries 3 people its only one fee for bike, same goes for passengers on solos and trikes. Its a lot to get through, but I want to make sure every one understands, check website pamsmcride.com.au for other details. Ill keep posting on this forum and others so that I hopefully get to all interested parties. Any other info that you may want please email pamsmcride@gmail.com. All the best Beetle

Send Entry and Story to Beetle Bayley po box 505 Lavington NSW 2641 and If You want to enter from OS you can email the story to pamsmcride@gmail.com on recite of Your story Ill tell you where to deposit the aus$25. All money I raise goes to training Guide Dogs in Australia. All the best Beetle.

Looking to the future

You may have heard of Me and My ride Im doing Across Australia (P.A.M.S. motorcycle Ride) taking inspiration from Winifred Wells who did the trip in 1950. Well many months ago I got a call from Jason at Raceway Motorcycles in Nidderie. Jason had heard about the ride and offered Raceway Motorcycles assistance, We had a meeting and all was fine for a while. Id had issues getting Raceway to commit or return My emails and phone calls. Last Friday I get a call from Jason stating that Raceway was not able to meet My time frames and that I would be better getting another firm to help out. Jason stated that He had 4 other business to handle and just could not work with Me on P.A.M.S. MC RIDE. I said that is fine and thanked Jason for his phone call. Well now Im at a bit of a loss, I really need a ROYAL ENFIELD shop/distributer or a Business that sees the potential, to help Me out. I want 2 Royal Enfield 350 Classics, one for Me to ride now to show off and promote the ride, the other to give away as a prize to the one who registers and raises the most over aus$1,000 for Guide Dogs. Im not expecting these bikes for Free, though that would be nice. What I want is a rather nice discount so as I may be able to donate and raise more money for Guide Dogs. For the shop/supplier of the bike I will promote them for over a year while riding, have them written up on My web site, on Facebook pages, promote them at Interviews and in Magazine articles that will all happen during 2017/18 and have their Logo displayed on the 30 day ride across Australia. If ANYONE has a contact or is in Business and sees this as an opportunity to raise their Businesses profile please let them know or let Me know so as I may have a meeting with them to discuss this venture. Looking to the future, all the best Beetle Bayley 0458294271

Looking up

Got a message from Jim Scaysbrook at OLD BIKE Australasia, he's going to run an article in the magazine about P.A.M.S. MC RIDE. Jim also gave me the name of a guy who won the DOOR PRIZE of a 1950 RE at a swap meet in Qland and also Jim said I should contact Mid Life Cycles in Melbourne to see if they are into helping out/gettinginvolved in PAMS MC RIDE 2017. Things are looking up. all the best Beetle

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.
