UK 2004 Meeting

Why become an HU Member?

For those who may not be aware, we both now work full-time+ on the website / bulletin board / e-zine, usually 8-12 hours per day and 7 days a week. We're not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997, but quickly (by 1998) became a full time job and an unpaid labour of love. Grant has been full-time on HU since 1998, with Susan part time and since 2008, also full time.

You've told us how important this site and it's Community is to you. We intend to survive, and have been trying to figure out just how for a long time. Currently, the site is funded approximately equally from advertising, motorcycle travellers meetings and now sales of DVDs, t-shirts and other products with a very small amount from memberships.

We are very grateful to the advertisers we have, and hope to attract more, so if you know anybody who should be advertising with us, please send them around! Ad rates and information here.

Coming to a Horizons Unlimited meeting is a great way to meet fellow travellers, and your meeting registration fee also helps support the website.

Argentina 2009 Meeting

When you decide to become a Member, it helps directly support the site, and is very much appreciated. In return you get additional privileges on the HUBB, access to the Members Private Store, and more to come on the site as we roll out new systems.

Member Benefits

There is no requirement to be a member to access the website, the HUBB or to receive the monthly e-zine. For now, 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.

Members do get additional features on the HUBB, such as having more space for posting pictures. The table below summarizes the HUBB benefits for members. Please note that we have taken nothing away from the privileges Registered Users have, we have just added additional privileges for contributing members.
