When responding to threads that have been 'dead' for over 6 year and passing disparaging comments, at least make the effort to read them properly first and realise what they are about !

A. In the 1st post on the very first line the OP said he already had road insurance for his 600cc motorcycle.

B. In the 2nd post someone offered a suggestion.

C. In the 3rd post the OP had followed the suggestion and solved his query. And offered his thanked for the suggestion. (People do)

Apart from failing to see the OP had followed a suggestion and solved his query by following the suggestion, you also appear to have failed to understand the query was about medical expenses insurance and nothing at all to do with vehicle insurance.



It can't be too challenging or complicated - there were only 3 short posts comprising 6 lines to look at!

Warrigal - seeing this statement from you reminds me of this one from Dr Al-Sahaf, the Iraqi Information Minister until 2003 "I NOW INFORM YOU THAT YOU ARE TOO FAR FROM REALITY."
Question is, who was Al-Sahaf telling this to - a quote ahead of its time or what?!

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.
