Now that's what you call a dead board.

I counted roughly 18 separate threads started in 2016 (I know, I started most of them). I think if you look at all of the state boards Indiana will definitely be in the upper half maybe the top 10 or 15.

I've tried for years to increase interest but alas got tired talking to myself. Now I frequent the Ohio board....those guys like to ride and are some good folks.

About time for rte's so should pick up soon,

Just adding:

I hadn't looked at this forum for almost a year until only about two weeks ago. (For a few years i looked at it every evening). I couldn't believe the number of Gold Wings the whole years range that are listed for sale and are being added daily. Not sure why there is such an 'epedemic' of bikes for sale? I have thought about this for the last couple weeks what the factors are contributing to this. It's not only Gold Wings either as there are literaly oodles of various brands/models of bikes just in our local area for sale? Very much same with with boats,,just as bad if not worse in regards to numbers for sale.

Just to clarify, I'm not talking about the postings...I'm talking about people actually doing stuff. Rides, cabin fever type events, RTEs - even if you drive...that stuff.

How many southern Indiana Wingers or actually anyone around me going to Moonshine this Sat.? Youngwinger88?

Anyone want to meet? I will be going through Loogootee and Washington and cut up through Wheatland(550) toward Terre Haute(150) and get on 154 to Il hwy 1.

Leaving early from home and i hope to get there before the crowd does.

Showing 36F for Sat. morning and my Harley buddies won't go if it is that cold.

I can go through Jasper and Otwell up Washington. I got so used to that road being under water this time of year i don't even try. Might be ok this year but more rain coming yet.
