I'd love to see some action back here!

I really haven't been active on any forums, other than the road glide forum, for quite some time.

I think the mass mail might be a cool reminder to some folks!

That is what I am thinking, a mass email for an online reunion of sorts.
Set it up for an upcoming weekend where folks can just drop by and reconnect.

I check in several times a week. I'm more of a lurker than a writer. I guess the question(s) that need to be asked - did they really leave? - what type of action (content, etc) to we want to see? For example, I performed my very first oil change and spark plug change on my C50T. Nothing over the top and it was fun. Is that worthy for a posting? I just recently went over 15,000 miles (and got caught in a down pour - all yesterday) - - again, is it worthy?

Now, if your talking about getting together for a group ride/wrench party/etc - I'm also for that with the limitations being time and money. Overall, I'm happy that I'm here and granted - there isn't many postings, but for me that's also a pleasure.

People used to post about life events, births, marriages, etc...
New bikes, repair questions, about nice rides they had taken and just overall chit chat.
Just would like the site to be active again and reconnect with some old friends.
A VOL rally would be nice!!!

Facebook is for cagers! Long live the VOL!

Been busy as hell but still checking in here and riding every chance I get and enjoying it as much as ever.

Hell yes, first oil change is a worthy post! I remember how it felt. Damn good! Mission accomplished!

My 2003 VOL passed it's first state inspection (required here in NC) with flying colors! That Sylvania halogen bulb I installed 10 years ago is still going strong!

Glad a new riding season is underway, hope to see some old friends out there before it's over. Ride safe and enjoy!

I really remember the days when it was addictive to be glued to this site. Everybody chatting about all sort of things and everybody chipping in the conversations.

I'd really like to see the ole days' level of activity too.
