All,

I want to thank everyone who has participated in this forum throughout the years and also to the moderators of the site. This has been a valuable wealth of knowledge especially for a rider like myself that is getting back into the sport. I just wanted to post a quick note to bring a reminder that this site is funded through donations. I just contributed and I hope there are others that feel the same way.

Thanks. ::022::

P.S. Winter is too long! This sucks.

Brick,

I just clicked on your link in your signature to show where you are riding. It shows you are on the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC. Wow, you are a lucky to have that track in your backyard! I have not been to that area before, but google street view gives some very sweet perspective on the views.

Enjoy the ride and be safe!

Seriously, a number of us have been together here and previously on FJRForum or Stromtrooper or another forum that it's become kinda family.

Yes I am very lucky. I retired and moved here. I tell the locals that I got here as quick as I could!

BTW... yesterday I looked on the computer at this forum and at the bottom where it lists donations... it said 2014?? And there was nothing to click on to donate. I did donate one year but don't know how to now. Any tips?

Yeah, I just clicked the 2014 logo and it takes you to another page where you can donate through paypal and I think maybe other options as well. I think they might not have updated the logo picture. I PM'd Venture that I made the donation and he responded thanks and he was working on the 2017 site supporter logo and they would be out soon.

You can definitely tell. It is very refreshing to participate in something like this on the internet that is basically "Troll Free". Nicely moderated!

Terminus, thanks again for your support.

Myself and the mod staff do the best we can to make this forum one of the best out there. I'm happy to hear folks are enjoying it.

The donation badges are being updated soon.

I don't seem to be able to locate a site donation link. Can someone give an assist?

Thanks!
I think when the forum changed the link went away. I've donated every year since 2012 until last year. The forum owner used to update your profile with a badge of sorts that showed who donated, but that stopped happening a while back and with the new forum format, no badges any more and no donate link. No idea why.

Well, basically I got REALLY lazy in keeping things updated, so donations didn't make it over to the new site.

Truth be told, the site has been running a financial deficit for years now. I absolute *HATE* ads and refuse to put them on the site. The site isn't going to put me under any time soon but I probably am going to start the donation program up again so folks can throw a few bucks towards upkeep, which is always appreciated but never required.

I just want to say I really appreciate the fact that this hobby has helped so many people over the years. This has never been a business but a community, and that is what has always mattered most to me.

Also please thank the moderators, they do most of the work around here these days. My efforts are usually far between but can be quite monumental to keep things updated. I'm working on things as we speak, changes are coming!

Like Don said, good to see you post Venture!! You built a good site and the Mods have done well. The community has indeed become a great place to hang out and learn. This forum stand out among the variuos forums I go to because it lacks and personal attacks and BS that can become so rampant online. Here it's all about helping each other and learning/sharing/growing/riding.

Thanks for the badges, but more importantly, I look forward to seeing the donation link again. I think of this as sort of like buying a magazine used to be. If I liked it, I would subscribe so I didn't miss an issue. The forum offers so much more than any magazine ever did or could. It brings us together and allows us to read other perspectives from all over the world. Everyone can look at it their own way, but you offer it free to the world which is a very cool thing.

Thanks so much for keeping this forum open. It has been such a great source for information, experience and fellowship all tied to this wonderful machine. I am amazed at the knowledge and class that is always evident among the inmates here. It's good to see a post from you Venture. Again, many thanks.

Steve

What's the process for making a donation? I'm not seeing a link. I also allow that I might not be looking hard enough.

Take my money! Gotta keep this community and invaluable resource going.
