It's the forum here and others that are specific topics.
Faceplant isn't and could never be a forum, too many distractions per page.
I visit here daily, not always have the time to reply but always read.
If I see a post that I think I can add positively to I make it a point to do what I can.
My reasons are:
I needed help to fix my bike - NUMEROUS times.
I came here - someone always gave me real, good, info.
I've made friends here.
I love to connect with other motorcyclists that enjoy motorcycles.
So yeah, people aren't posting like they used to, me included.
But winter is coming and so are all those riders looking for a good story/read/post.
IF YOU WRITE A POST - THEY WILL COME
