A few of the BB.org folks here may have already glimpsed some of this, but for the rest not in the know here's the full scoop.
It's been a while now, and after a year or so of badgering from the former BB.com clan and a bit of the back-and-forth between myself and DBoogie here, I am happy to announce that my former Customarily Minded articles from the "glory days of Beginner Bikes" are all reprinted here (and soon to be at BAB.com as well). Hit the "articles" tab in the header above and you will see the "Customarily Minded" title, every editorial of mine that appeared at Beginner Bikes has now been reprinted and loaded there.
But wait, there's more! As many of the former BB.com folks recall, back in January 28th of 2005 the veil of darkness finally settled upon what was our fave site at the time, and Beginner Bikes fell off the web along with all the valuable info within, lost forever.
Of course preceding all that was the forum closure about a month earlier, and the subsequent creation of KZRob's BBRC (now "Staggered Riders" at Delphi) in an attempt to regroup the BB.com forum members at large in order to decide what to do next. Which brings us to the two large offshoot communities of "Beginner and Beyond" and "Beginner Bikers".
So to celebrate the one year anniversary of these two offshoot sites, as well as in recognition of our roots, on January 28th I will shine a light into that well of darkness that was once Beginner Bikes and publish an all new Customarily Minded to kick off these events, and I will be able to publish new content regularly once more and "resurrect a part of what once was".
Special thanks to said badgering beginner bikers that lit that fire under my butt once more. Happy reading!
