It would, but it still wouldn't have been quite like it had been. Social media has had an impact but also lots of key members have moved on from the sport.

And then some not so key ones still act like idiots on these things.....

I'll say it again, SOOOOOO many topics have come up in the world the last few years where my first instinct was to log on here and discuss.......then I remembered that the death rattle already played its gruesome tune

The WERA Beeb lives on because it's still the same basic group of folks. This place would have been the same.

I still would prefer this forum over FB crap, even though I haven't lived in Illinois for almost a decade, and am on and off motorcycles. But once the sale happened, lot of people got their panties in a bunch and gtfo. I still lurk once in a while, but the core majority of old heads from here are gone.

Not missing much. Latest post there is 10-17-2015. Right now the only bike sites I'm on that are still hopping like it was back in the day is WERA's and svriders.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.
