The HUBB PUB Chat forum - no useful content required!

BUT the basic rules of polite and civil conduct which everyone agreed to when signing up for the HUBB, will still apply, though moderation will be a LITTLE looser than elsewhere on the HUBB.

A UK resident on an extended holiday has been caught out by the details of their annual holiday insurance. Read the small prints before you sign up folks - remember the devil (and the insurance companies’ claim avoidance plan) is in the detail! Hopefully, he will make a good recovery.

A similar restriction often applies to UK vehicle insurance too. Cover abroad is typically limited to individual trips of 30 days.

But I have known an insurer to extend it on request, at no charge.

Indeed! I was reading earlier about some of the arguments the lawyers were using to justify their position. It seems that the ban side said they were happy to allow recreational activity but that overnight camping wasn't recreational because you were unconscious while you were doing it. You really couldn't make it up (although they tried!)

Not news as such but an article on the BBC about the shepherdesses of the Pamir region.

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.
