One day I am sure I will just not sign in and that will be that.

That's how it happens...and has been happening for some time....by others who have thought the same way. The Admin could open up this Board and make it viable again, but I believe the death spiral process is too far along at this point.


I suggest all who read this go to TrikeTalk.com or Motocampers.com and check out their Board and the many forums.....then start bending the ear of @Admin.

I agree 100% with what you have written. The Admin can crush a site with too much control. The site I just left to come here the Admin went into one of my personal message that was sent to me and delete 3 phone numbers another person had sent to me for getting my extended warranty on my F6B. I had to call the person on the phone to get the numbers back. I left that site shortly after that and have not gone back to it for anything.

This whole thread just made me realize something...I am sick of wasting my time looking at a forum.
Time to fall by the wayside and find better things to do with my time.

later

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Funny, I quit FB and cable tv....I was sick of the bull crap on both. I'm getting more reclusive in my old age. News, fake news, what you ate last night, what religious beliefs you want to push on me, has ended it. I'm at the point of, if it doesn't affect me or my job, then I don't care at all. Whatever happens happens, here or elsewhere. I'll roll with the punches.

Allen does have a good point here: bow:

Now that I do have a trike, I also joined TrikeTalk.com (thank you Allen for telling me about that site by the way - your the reason I joined it)

But I believe, myself, like many of you, turn on the computer, and find it's a habit to go directly to this site, I enjoy reading, learning, and like the enjoyment that I get out of it on a daily basis.

Let's keep it going, I feel that even though I never meet many of you folks, that were all the best of friends, even though we all live in different parts of the United States, as well as world wide, in other countries..

Love yea ALL as a brother...

I wrote an article and it was published in the First Person column of this issue.
It's all about how and why I acquired my F6B.

I haven't been around as long as many of you, but it seems to me when I first came here there were less forum selections. I understand why it may be easier to find things, like info on oil, tires, gear, etc. with everything categorized into their respective forums, but I think it has been overdone and suppresses more widespread participation and interaction. For instance, why is a 2012 that much different from an '06 that it deserves a separate forum selection? It's like going into a wake for a departed friend and one side of the family is congregated on one side of the room, the other side of the family is at another side, former work colleagues are sitting out back, motorcycle riding buddies are out arguing by the entrance, and none of the groups are sharing their favorite stories of the departed.
