FB group essentially has no good content and anyone offering good advice has left
FB group is now nothing more than an entertainment group around the hobby it was started under
FB group is now totally useless and several hobby specific forums are dead.
FB Group becomes mostly site used for selling shit!

My guess is that the other forms of social media have diverted people from forums other than strictly a source of information or help with problem solving. A shame really. I have met at least 20 members from here in person at track days or races. Its been great to be able to do that. To go 1000 miles from home and meet a perfect stranger that you feel as if you already know. Many of them willing to extend hospitalities to me just because of this forum and the relationships developed here. I would love to see that here again. I know it still exists here. Maybe just not as much as it used to.
agree with you 100%
Forums are dead all around the board. I'm a class 3 lurker and nobody knows me on any forum. but i am forever great full for all the knowledge people post. i always still check forums on a weekly basis. once and a blue moon ill post but its sad to see what forums have become.

I want to echo your sentiments on the knowledge that people pass on. I have learned so much and saved countless dollars doing things myself. All because of forums. This forum especially.

Amen, there are some smart Mofos on here. But conversely, there are some dumb Mofos as well. Glad to be somewhere in between. Facebook is a place for pepole to boast and stroke each other. I like the pictures more than anything. I guess Insta gram is a good idea but for me, I rather like to be more invisible and not let everyone in the world know what I am doing every hour of the day.

corporate:"lets update the software to make it 'better' and make it look cool that's what they want yeah! and it'll bring in more people!"

year later: "where are all the people?"

Shut up and ride.

With all that said, I've relocated to the Columbus, Ohio area. Anybody on the forum in or around the area?

I'm here. I don't come my much as the site is yet strongly driven by non riding trolls with many reward squares.

In a concise fashion, bike sites simply lose scope of their mission: to form a group of riders sharing ideas. Like politics, invasive species enter under cover of whatever and simply take over.

Very very very old. Read this for background:

The Prince Paperback – March 1, 2019
by Nicolo Machiavelli

Why sites all fail. Nothing new under the sun; and why governments fail. And why businesses fail. Except Disney knew all the above. Disney will never fail until Armageddon.
