Here is a link to my blog which will introduce myself a little better.. We Are All One . Thanks.. and look forward to seeing some of you on the road.... All the Best ..Eliza

Welcome Eliza and I hope that you are feeling better after your operation, good luck with your trip and I hope that you are going to share some of your fabulous photos with us. Might I suggest that you embed a link to your website on your posts so that people can find it more easily.
Mark

You go to your private messages page, on the lefthand side click edit signature and paste the link or links into the box, click save signature changes. You could put your blog and website, but only if you want to of course.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80G/S.

Susan and Grant Johnson Read more about Grant & Susan's story

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.
