Nice offer Champ ..

I should be riding through your area next April (south heading ~~> north). It would be great to have a drink or two with a local Gold Coaster.

Cheers

Keith

Welcom to stay

Hi all,

Need a friendly place to stay traveling between Brisbane and the Gold Coast Im not into the night life but would love to do some local day rides with you, its ok to stay a day or two and have some R&R doesn’t matter if you are young or older like my self, I am happy to ride and like to go on day rides.

Im including photos of me and my 1977 Suzuki GS750 which has GS850 barrels and Head I look forward to the day I am able to get a Touring Bike
I would like to do the Birdsville Track and a bit of outback touring. There are so many places to see here in Ozz Im afraid that traveling the coastal roads just doesn’t do Australia justice,

Looking forward to meeting you on your tours

Half way between Brisbane abd the gold coast Keith stayed over

Hi All,

keith arrived on friday and was welcomed by a delge like buckets of water falling from the sky, it was so sudden that he was caught across the road at the intersection and with a fogged visor and low vision foubd it hard to find my place , what were dry roads one second were rivers of running water the next.
Keith 1954 stayed over for a couple of days wating for the rain to clear and fsaid he found my place as though to be an oasis in the desert. I enjoyed Keiths company and his travel stories we finished the weekend with a night out at the Brisbane Jazz club and came home to have a great rump steak on the BBQ it was agreat weekend
so if your in the area give me a call 07 3287 1253

All the best
Champ

The reward of choice is freedom

Hey George - G'day (again) ..

To everyone: Having just left George's place after stopping-over with him and his lovely daughter for 2-3 great days /nights, I can definitely recommend that if you ever find yourself passing through the south Brisbane area, then should consider doing the same.

George is The Champion Wonder Steak Barbecue-er of Australia! ..

Thanks mate, for all your kind hospitality .. .. see you again one day soon, I hope.

Best wishes

KEITH

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.
