    I will put out there that there are two people in THIS thread who are responsible for me no longer posting much. They always have something smart to say in response to anything. 90% of the time they are the first and last to respond to any post. They can't sit back and wait for anyone to get involved in a discussion before they weigh in with their "wisdom." It just got tiresome. The whole site has become " " and " " 's site. I visit the ladies only page and that's about it.

      Happy New Year I rode all day today with 5 other riders and we had a blast, nobody got mad and nobody got sad. Plan to do it all again tomorrow.

          I have my theory "why" this site in particular, is sick. It starts with the name of the site. Some may be "put off" by the slang term "bikers." (Just a theory, here.) And since not many like to admit they're a "beginner" at anything, it doesn't register on searches. Or, they bypass the recommendation with their eyes.

          All I can say, is that other sites are getting bombarded with requests: "What bike should I get?" & other things this site is designed for. And yet, here we are. Ok, here I am. I've been guilty of leaving this site too, as there isn't much traffic, anymore.

          One would think that with so many at home, with COVID-19 threatening (not really,) that aimless computer time would reign supreme. (I dunno, maybe it is...) It's just not here.

          So, what's inna name? Marketing? You bet it is!

          (Nope, I'm not saying we should change the name of the site.) And nope, I'm not "starting my own domain." (BTDT.)

          Anyone?




          Bueller?


          BUELLER!

          Let's see if anyone see's this before Summer....
          site is sadly lacking in positive input.

          ug more snow,
          I guess winter is really here. Time to do some serious motorcycle servicing.

          I ordered a new motorcycle, did I mention that already?

            Well a belated Happy New Year to you too!

            I'm pretty sure back when both you and this forum were active that the number was a lot higher than two. A LOT higher.
