I love this place, dead or alive it's still represents friendships of like minded people vs f@rkn FB with it's senseless trivia tsunami, which quite frankly gives me a head ache after a few minutes, thus I do not go in there any more. It's a bit like walking into a massive shopping centre for your now famous "milk & toilet paper" and having to walk by all the non relevant outlets trying impress upon you to get some of their shit, regardless whether you need it or not :roll:

Not quite dead yet, but there isn't much activity on here.

I manage a similar forum, here, and it has been overtaken by FB. It now only gets the odd post.
That FB page is a "group" setup, which means that if you're not on FB (I'm one of quite a few), you can't see it, ie it is a bit of a clique.
In response I set up a forum topic called NFB (Non FaceBook), and it is only visible to non-facebookers. The rest (facebooker) are giving me flack over it, telling me to "get with the times", and complain that they can't see its contents.
I have worked in IT (including IT security) for a long time, am "with the times", and don't want FB.

Anyway, I have just returned from my almost annual 8000km ride Perth to Phillip Island for the MotoGP (Great Ocean Road, Great Alpine Road) on the rebuilt ZZR1200, which ran superbly. Every time I come home from one of those rides, I tell the missus "no more", and she simply says "yeah, sure". I looked for KSRC flag at turn 1, didn't see it.

And, I became a Grandfather for the first time, while I was away. :D

I care more about riding than putting up with FB crap.
Don't ride as if you own the road.......
Ride as if you own the bike!
