Talking To All The Members, A Congrat"s To Us!

from a few confidential sources in hi ranking business and from Intel on other web forum based sites. i have been told numerous times about our site and the members.
its been said that the caliber of members on the site is so great and the members attitude and quest for self reliance to find the facts and do what they like in there sport and hobby. rather then to be lead around from the majority like little kids.
We are versatile in our members to which we have MANY types of riders that differ all with motorcycles. WE ARE TRULY a force in Chicago and other professional boards.
Note when i say professional boards, that started out like what most all do...the others (not all by no means) have deteriorated into nothing but complaining, rivalry, insults, spamming, chaos if you will. it was said like i noted by business men and shops, that we are a VERY GOOD web site. not only to conduct research and conduct business with. but also a site where common sense prevails among the silliness that is usually accompanied by other boards. On 1 topic on the amount of track go'ers on this site. it was applauded on how we conduct ourselves and everyone isn't stuck up on them self's and how we research on how to improve ourselves rather it be purely track time, or organizations to just getting out there day to day and wanting and doing the best we can with our bikes.


It was also noted on how myself and Tony over see the site and hold our site on very high remarks with our business affiliates and future prospects looking into the site for a venue to advertise as for what they see they like and would have no problem investing in us.

What we have here is something more then just myself or Tony...its all of us.
Sure sometimes myself or Tony and the moderators have to do things that might upset a few people but the action was done on the best intentions for all the site members and the site owners. The outcome so far and the vigilance we put forth has been prosperous for all of us and the recognition we get.

So next time you sign on....you have something else to be proud of.
Your apart of something special and a part of something people are starting to notice an appreciation for us.

thanks everyone

Ditto! This is a great Quality site. Now we just need some promotional stuff like maybe one of those online stores that makes merchandise with CLSB on it. I saw one of those stores associated with fireblades.org. I wouldn't mind t-shirts or sweatshirts with the site logo on it....

SEMPER FI!!!

Ditto here.

This site is great! You don't realize it until you visit another site and see all the BS that goes on. They're like children fighting.
This site sometimes has topics that go into the gutter, but hey, once in a while we all do.

I'm looking forward to going on some group rides, and hopefully a track day with fellow members.

Thanks to Ken, Tony, and the other moderators for operating a first rate site.

Mike

Is there still room on the bandwagon?

I'd to offer a pat on the back to Ken, Tony, and all the moderators who do such a great job with this site.

Thanks for all the time you guys put in, free of charge, to keep this place humming along.

wOW thats awesoem congrats. I have noticed it too. This forum is more like a community, than just members loggin on and talking trash. I feel a sense of unity with the board, Its kinda cool. Not to mention most if not all of the members care about what they ride, why they ride it. Ride with passion, plain and simple.

There is no greater sorrow than to recall happiness in times of misery.

A TOAST TO THE BOARD

Anyone "browsing" this board knows this is not like most other sites. People here are dedicated to the sport we love and i feel like all members are genuine in advice to problems other than our sport.

This is definit pats on the back to owners, mods, and members!

Lets market some merchandise!

Wow, cool to see shit like this. The site is really starting to take the form of the vision I had for it in the beginning 2 years ago. It was a bumpy road to get it all started, and Ken jumped in and jioned up with me to do it together. Now its almost where I want it to be. We do need to start getting some merchandise out there.

I need some contacts and an artist before that can happen though.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
