Day trip around Central Victoria on a 50 yr old cafè racer.

This bike lay dormant for 31 years. Corona project.

The wheels are original Henry Abe Industries from Japan. I believe a lot of them were sold in the North American market but not many made their way Down Under.

Happy Jack was a former shepard on Ravenswood Station who struck it rich in the 1850s Gold Rush and opened this store.

This is what the bike sounds like.

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.
