Adventure Show at Colorado Motorcycle Expo Sept. 20 & 21

From September 3, 2014 NEWS RELEASE


Two seminars about 100 years of long distance motorcycling, and dispelling some of the myths associated with global motorcycle travel, will be offered by well-known motorcycle adventure author and moto-journalist Dr. Gregory W. Frazier. The shows will be during the Colorado Motorcycle Expo (www.coloradomotorcycleexpo.com) at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado.


The Saturday show will incorporate:



“The longest, most difficult motorcycle journey ever attempted.” (1912)
“The First ‘Coast To Coast’ Trip By A Motorcycle And Sidecar – A True Adventure” (1913)
“The Greatest Ever ‘Round-The-World Motorbike Adventure” (2012-2013)


The Sunday show, RIDING THE WORLD, will include:


“Five Times Around The Globe By Motorcycle” (1980-2014)


Times: 1:00 PM, Saturday & Sunday, September 20 & 21, 2014

Place: National Western Complex, Denver, Colorado


Purpose: For over 100 years motorcyclists have been riding around the world on a wide variety of motorcycles ranging from Harley-Davidson to Vespa. The first person to solo around the world did it in 1912-1913 on a one speed, 7 horsepower Henderson motorcycle. The fastest person to circle the globe on a motorcycle did it in less than 17 days.
The first couple to ride across the United States did so in 1913 on a Henderson motorcycle equipped with a self-made sidecar. During their incredible ride, having left Long Beach, California on May 24, 1913, they were in Denver, Colorado from July 5 – July 9, 1913, marking the trail for others to follow, and eventually arrived in New York City on September 6, 1913.


The Saturday, September 20 multi-media show at 1:00 PM, LONG DISTANCE RIDING ADVENTURES – 100 YEARS, dispels some of the myths and tales about the first motorcycle adventure riders while sharing numerous secrets of modern day adventure travel.



The second multi-media show, Sunday, September 21 at 1:00 PM, SUN CHASING – RIDING THE WORLD recounts Dr. Frazier’s five incredible motorcycle rides around the world. Frazier is currently on a pit stop during a sixth attempt to “girdle the globe” by motorcycle.

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.
