GuyB,

I noticed a post or two from H&H champ Destry Abbott, so how about you add H&H to the GNCC, WORC, Endurocross forum and move it up the page a bit (at least above the dumbgeon and non-moto) so it'll get a bit more attention?

Until Vital gets a bunch bigger, I'd actually vote to keep it in the "moto" section. As long as something's even mildly motorcycle related, it seems to work just fine.

Now if Vital explodes to 10X it's current posting membership, there will be no choice.

Got it...I'll look at a reorder soon.

I would expect that anyone would get that H&H (that's Hare & Hound, not Hart & Huntington) would fit into the current off-road forum. smile

Any other glaring omissions?

I didn't realize there was an offroad section either, I just always check the moto-related section. Now that I know Bonds checks in, I can start talking trash about him smile No, you know I love you Bondo! See you in Washington!

Every board has way more "members" than posting members, that's why I mentioned "current posting membership". Do you really think there's a Brazilian members, that's a whole lot!!


Cripes, I never noticed the GNCC, WORCS, Endurocross section before Guy mentioned it. Duh.

I do think that...but since they are going to post regardless of what I think (at their own loss-Larry Brooks, or gain-DV, SH and a few others that handle the boards well), I just thought it'd be cool if GuyB moved the offroad forum a bit closer to the top of the page so us offroad guys (and pro racers if they see fit to post) can have a specific forum, that gets a bit more attention, for race reports, ride reports, bike set up questions etc...

anyway, I've been thinking about it for a long time, but seeing Destry's posts reminded me give a shout out to GuyB about it.

(And so what if I was on the start line next to Destry Abbott at the Cherry Creek National back in May?....don't mean anything...sheesh. wink laughing But it sure would be nice to have a forum to post it in that will get some attention..ain't no fun braggin' about stuff that nobody sees.)

I know when to post and when not tosmile Trust me, there's been a lot of times I wanted to post something, but then decided it won't do any good. I would just get myself into trouble most of the time! I actually enjoy reading some topics when I have time though.

Hey, if you're going to post, it sounds like you're doing it right.

As for some explanation on why I don't think industry types should post on the boards:

I THINK it's best for industry people/riders to NOT post because I honestly think that the "downside" to posting on the message boards far out weighsthe "upside". And if you've read any of the "infamous" Larry Brooks threads you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. What started as a good intentioned "publicity" stunt on Larry's part, quickly turn into a whole bunch of negativity surrounding him...it completely backfired (unless you subcribe to that whole "any publicity is good publicity" thing...I'm not sure it applies to moto, though).

Anyway, best of luck..."see you" at Wendover, and Jericho/Cherry Creek in a few months-back to back nationals, crazy

If you are cringing when you press submit...probably good idea to hit the back button instead.

That's the truth...and I learned it the hard way...

And less is usually more when it comes to posting...you make less enemies that way....that's another thing I just haven't quite learned as well as I should have.
