Looking to the future - p.a.m.s

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 pamsmcride@gmail.com

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.
