    I still chuckle at the irony behind the lengthy facebook BBO discussion several years ago about how the BBO forum isn't active.




    Seriously, think about that for a bit...and then go back and read my initial post in this thread.

      I looked at the BBO page on FB, and there are only 3 admins/moderators: Tom, Missy and Hung, so one of them must have started the page.

      To me, FB is nice for quick question, short answers, or hey, look at me! things. I find it hard to follow long threads because you can reply to something in the middle, whereas here it's all in time order, you refer back or quote if you need to make special reference.

      I like this platform better.

        Not necessarily. A facebook group can be started by anyone, and that starter can always turn admin rights over to anyone else and leave the group or "demote" themself to a regular member. For example, I inherited a 250 Rebel group from someone who didn't want to manage it anymore, that person left and now I am the admin.

          Exactly. I forget who started the group, but whoever it was at some point made me an admin without me asking or wanting that, and then later whoever it was dropped out. I haven't done diddly as an admin. Don't even really know how to admin a FB group.
          In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

            AHA! I stand corrected!

            You can download a copy of the BBO FB page, choose dates that surround creation date, it may reveal something.

              Hate to say it, but I fear the sport of riding motorcycles is dying :/ You don't see the number of new riders that you did at one time and just look how many new riders come through here (not many) and then disappear. ( which is very concerning! hopefully all are well and still vertical.)

                It is a good point you make, Trials, that less folks are entering this sport/hobby.
