Happy 6th Birthday CLSB!!!

July 24th is CLSB's 6th B-day.

6 years ago today I decided on a domain name and bought it, Shortly after that the first post was made on our old EZ board system. As the Story go's we stayed on EZ-board for about 6 months Then I met Fred From SBN at one of the first SBN BBQ's at his house and he invited us on, then we merged onto SBN's server as a subforum for a while then as a separate forum, . Stayed there for about 2 years till growth of both sites made it impossible for the one server to handle. At this point I either had to Kill it or grow it, So I got to talking to Ken and we pooled our money and got this thing going as partners on our own server. The rest is history, we are still on this server and the site has grown exponentially and just never ceases to amaze the level of quality membership that congregates here. All of you, the members of CLSB who make it what it is deserve a heartfelt thanks, as without you guys CLSB would just be a bunch of mods talking to themselves

I want to say thanks to Fred for helping us grow in those early years, without his help I would have been struggling on that damn EZ-board system for years. And thanks to Ken for coming along and being half of an excellent business partnership, Without Ken I would have lost more hair than I have already, he has brought more to this site than I think he even knows. And lastly I want to thank the staff, without whom this site would be an unorganized mess with constant flaming destroying the civilized (cough) manner in which we all communicate.

I originally did this because I had been out of riding for a few years due to buying a house and getting married, all my friends had sold their sport-bikes or bought Harley's so I was looking for a few guys to ride with. Honestly I never dreamed that day that it would become what it has.

Thanks everyone for making CLSB what it is today,

Tony aka HDTony




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

If this site wasn't here, I wouldn't have found NESBA, racing, or dirt biking. I was set on the SV, but probably wouldn't have kept riding if I didn't meet the people I did through this site.

Uncle Tony, tell us the story of how you and Uncle Ken first met, I like that one

Happy Birthday CLSB!!

When I got into riding back in 2001, (yeah, I started riding really late), I had a hard time finding people to ride with until I found this site. I forgot how I found this site, but it has been GREAT!! I've made a lot of new friends and everybody seems to be very cool and easy to get along with.

Thanks again Tony & Ken!!
