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.

More 4x4 Presentations at HUBB 2018?

Hi All,

I attend the HUBB UK shows every year and always enjoy the wide variety of presentations...but did notice a distinct lack of 4x4 presenters at HUBB 2017 (UK). I would like to think we as a community have something to offer, and I expect there are at least some of us out there doing interesting trips...so why not step up and give a talk? I have presented in the past on both my trips and on travel security and will offer to do so again, but would like to see some others passing on their experiences as well.

Maybe contact the guys from the OverlandingAssociation.org, they put on some fantastic seminars over two days at the Adventure Overland Show.

Im sure they would be interested to participate.

I am a member of another 4x4 club who have attended the last 3 Hubb meetings and put on a display of large overland vehicles and trucks.

Unfortunately although this forum has a 4x4 section, no effort is made at the hubb uk to encourage us and other 4x4 members to attend. No part of the event is specifically 4x4.

This coupled with the fact that the organisers always choose a date that clashes with europes biggest overland event in germany and the cost of attending the show is ridiculously high has meant that no members of our club have shown any interest in attending this year.

Its a bit sad but hey ho, there are plenty of other events in the UK.

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.
