    Just met my first forum member

    Can't say enough good things about this forum. Especially after this. Great people, great attitudes, great place to come and hang out. So what if it's not a physical place, it's still the real deal.

    Thanks Richard!!!! It's was great meeting you.

    I am new here but have been involved in many forums. Some other sites are just a slaughter house when some one asks a question, a lot of "keyboard warriors" is what I like to call them. I would have to agree with MCC1776 about the people here. There seems to be a lot of respect towards one another here. No BS games being played and attitudes being thrown around. I plan on sticking around because of the community I am seeing.

    Agreed. Lizrdbrth really helped maintain that tone and we will miss him greatly.

    Totally agree and we owe it to him and all of our forum members to continue his legacy! Just like Mom always taught us "If you don't have something nice to say, say nothing at all".

    This does not preclude an occasional well deserved Razz here or there

    So how much of this good attitude can be credited to the moderator(s). Do they get involved when somebody forgets to be gentlemanly? ........I didn't think so!

    I think most of the moderators here lurk silently in the back ground and don't have to jump in often at all. Possibly, they might drop an offensive poster a short warning or even just ban such an individual from the site all together. It would be interesting to hear from a Mod about just how much Modding they have to do.

    I've met and ridden with about 10 forum members so far and all have been nice and fun to ride with. I think we all get along so well because we all have the same bike so not trying to one up each other and say how much better our bike is.... We just like talking about mods, places to ride and taking fun rides to explore.

    It is the bike that has brought us all together. And I think the person who owns one of these simple down to earth machines that are just fun bring out the folks that are in that same vein. Easy going, smell the roses, not fired up to be rash or get there the fastest. This was a mature bike when it was born in 87.

    If a moderator doesn't have to do much "modding", I think that says something about the people here. Ever since I have registered here. I have searched through I would say 100 threads researching these bikes so I can learn as much as I can before I purchase mine. I haven't come across one thread yet where tempers were going. Not saying it doesn't happen but it seems to be at a minimum here?
