  1. I haven't been here in a long time but this site seems to be pretty dead. What happened? Where did everybody go?
  2. Social media is killing a lot of forums.

  3. everyone went to after beans sold this site

  6. tis a ghost town, i wonder how much money they're losing/lost on this purchase
  7. They're apparently making some money off the adds....
  8. Yep. I haven't been here in a while, but got an email from here. The email was to drum up some traffic. I dropped by to see what was happening. I would agree, it's slow here.

    Me-thinks it's a combination of a decline in the motorcycle industry generally, and the fact that everybody does most of their social media-ing on facebook. Forum's are such a better tool for actual communication, but if you just want to scroll endlessly through choreographed pictures of your friends having fun, it's easier to accomplish elsewhere...

  11. Haha ~ actually no, I didn't. I had to reset it.
    An old friend who disappeared for a bit didn't know how to contact me. He looked me up here. PNW Riders... when we were known, even in real life, by our forum names. I kinda liked people not being able to peep at me like they can now on FB. Of course I don't give a hoot much anymore since 99% of my FB posts are public.

    BTW = miss you Goodwill! :p

    It’s still a tiny bit alive... anybody still riding? I only got maybe 1,000 miles this summer, but that’s better than nothing.
  17. I did not get many miles in this year either, didn't even do many track days.
  18. Every time I logged in to see if anyone was going on a ride all I would see is people selling their stuff ):
  19. If anyone wants to ride DM me! It's not to cold yet damn it!
