Dear Mods

I know why you make people post 15 times before they can post links, it's to control spam. I, however, am not a spammer and I would honestly like to make a contribution to the site. I am going to post three times here to bring my total to 15.

ww.bikerfriend.org/

This is a cool site which is designed to help bikers recognize each other. The site operator will send you two free bumperstickers which declare that you are 'biker friendly', i.e. willing to bikes a little extra room on the street and help other bikers if they're in trouble and you aren't in a hurry.

Its a neat pledge, and totally free. I don't own a cage (why do you think I'm riding a '96 GS500? I'm poor!) but got a couple of these and stuck them in the back window of the car I occasionally borrow from my parents. The site owner ships them nationwide, but seems to get them out within a week or two. If we could get a bunch of riders from Chicago to request these it might make life easier for all of us.

I've only been riding for a year, but I consider biker traditions to be of the utmost importance. I wave to everyone on two wheels, and extending a bit of courtesy to fellow riders is the least we can do. I've made my share of jokes about Harleys, but when I crashed last summer it was a newbie Harley rider and his wife who stopped to make sure I was ok. We gotta look out for each other regardless of bike make or what gear a rider is wearing.

let me get this straight, you dont live in the area but joined an area specific website in order to plug another site. And you're not a spammer? um, ok.

People's probable real name and addresses with a high probability of being associated with a targeted hobby are worth more to advertisers and marketers than the 2 free bumper stickers.

How about just sending 1000 bumper stickers to a PO Box we designate. No other information gets passed? Deal?

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

Is Oak Park not in the area?


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Thats rather unfair, I started a few threads and this was one that had a link to a not for profit site. It didn't occur to me that a mailbox for physical junk mail was such a probability/ concern, I sent for and received my stickers over a month ago. I'll even take pictures of them after my classes today.

Also, if Oak Park isn't area, I don't know what is.

What set you from?

Hey, I lived in Oak Park! But it was in Illinois.

I liked it a lot. Ahhh, diversity.
