Well, I dunno what all this moaning is about.
We've all had time to get used to the new platform now, if we haven't that's probably down to us to try harder and keep up.
As for content, sure, we lost a lot of useful members and I am disappointed that more of them haven't returned. We still have plenty of genuinely nice, happy and helpful people on here and I enjoy coming here.
Sure there is the occasional unnecessary comment from someone who has nothing better to do (I bet that applies to most fora), but there is still a wealth of experience and technical knowledge here. There is humour too and, despite the naysayers, any forum would be an arid place without the occasional humour and daft behaviour. I've had a lot of fun here the last couple of years, as well as learning a lot. I've met some of you,too, and a nicer lot of people I couldn't hope for. My 'contributions' have probably been more of the mischevous humour sort, but hopefully given a few of you the occasional smile or chortle.
Trolling has no place on here. The experience of some months ago should be a lesson to us all and we can self-moderate stuff like that if we can stick together and not feed them. The snow-chain thing was just a bit of Fruitcake Christmas fun which most of you saw through straight away, so please don't think of that negatively.
Compare the sub with the annual cost of a magazine. No pages of ads, you get pretty instant replies to model-specific questions, even experienced advice about things like scoots, electric bikes, satnavs, awnings or other accessories. You read about the travels of people just like us, and you take us with you on your travels too. I remember being parked up on the mean streets of Stornaway one evening in a right old downpour, and chatting with you. That's the sort of things I get from the forum. For 12 quid or whatever, it's a no-brainer.
I'm daft and proud of it.
