From a post by Jack Shaw, USA elsewhere...

- Biker's Hostel/Guesthouse Loesermuehle located in the old East Germany's Erzgebirge or "Iron Ore Mountains" between Chemnitz and Dresden. They're strictly for bikers, have a garden and a real German menu with 1/2 liter draft for about $1.50. This is no sleeping bag place either and has plenty of parking

- The Old Forge (Zur Alten Schmiede) <A HREF="http://www.alteschmiede.com]http://www.alteschmiede.com[/URL" TARGET=_blank> a racy
website for a place in the Eifel (western Germany between Koblenz and
Luxembourg--super ride along the Mosel River! -- [URL=http://www.alteschmiede.com/jpg/weg3.jpg]http://www.alteschmiede.com/jpg/weg3.jpg</A> that's "all-inclusive" with meals
and either camping http://www.alteschmiede.com/htm/camping.htm or single-, double- or multi-bed rooms http://www.alteschmiede.com/htm/wohnen.htm

Camping includes toilets, coin-op showers, and free firewood. Breakfast is
included with reservations. They have an indoor restaurant and outdoor patio
dining http://www.alteschmiede.com/htm/speisen.htm

Staying in Regensburg, Bavaria


If you need a place to stay for a night for 1 or 2 persons with garage for your bikes, a nice or wine and some warm meal mail to me.
If I am at home I would be glad to meet some new guys travelling the world with their bikes.
And by the way, come and enjoy the beautiful town of Regensburg, Monarchy Weltenburg, nuce rides through the Bayrischer Wald etc..

Best regards, Georg

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.
