Now you know why it is so important to me to maintain the structure and integrity of the forums. I'm glad to have you all aboard here and the BTK forum and it really works for me when people like yourselves get it.
Yeah, I do get it - now. Although we both know there was a time when I struggled with it. Fortunately, all it took was a place away from BTK where I (and the others I hang with) could cut loose without worrying about the age group that was reading it. The Lounge provided us with that "safety valve" if you will and, while I can't speak for the others, it gives me a place to blow off steam without risking my status there or here
This is just a different place then a lot of other biker forums, members respect it the format and each other, I believe thats the success of the forums people being courteous and friends helping friends just like you all were so willing to help Jeff or whoever needed help getting to the DOD.
That's thanks to you... by allowing the Off Topic section and giving us a place where we can get silly and not bother anyone else, we had the opportunity to really get to know each other. Not just in passing, not just through problems but through daily, normal life interactions. When we finally met face-to-face in Tongie, it wasn't a first meeting, it was a reunion. All because you gave us the venue to "meet" for the last couple of years.
Now the new adventure begins can it happen with all makes and manufacturers I'm not sure but we are going to find out!
Oh and by the way your welcome and thank you guys as well.
I have no doubt we can make this work with all makes and manufacturers... last weekend, we had Kawis, Hondas and HDs cruising and partying side by side with no issues. It's the people that make it work!
