    It still changes if you post a link to this site.
    They turned it off, for a while. Apparently though, once Rick Mays had his moment of clarity and there was a sudden mass exodus, they reinstated it.

    I agree completely. Childish, unethical, and totally revealing of those "in charge" over there. Revealing of their ethics, and their fear of what's happening to them.

    From what I here about that "messenger app", it benefits no one but Facebook. Glad I don't do Facebook.

    No, that site is the Dark Side.

    I know the name is already in use, but since there are so many members here that were banned over there, would this be the real "Darkside"?

    I too have had enough of the other site. I started a post on the other forum asking if enough people vote yes, that maybe " Wheels" would return to the site. The post then got locked by VS Jeff and was warned to not mention Wheels name any longer and read a post that Bartman had made that claimed Wheels left on his own. I also posted about a thread on pot being legalized that I was against it and it was removed by the moderators. It also had references to GWG in it but he was the one that started the thread. Anyway, I am glad to see some of the old characters from the other forum over here and look forward to having some good old discussions. Kit good to see your still around and kicking.

    I would agree. Like many (and growing it seems), I was a long time member of a community that I enjoyed greatly who was asked to leave. As often shared, I deeply cared about that community as I felt I owed it a great deal for all the benefits that I had received from it and the many great friendships (many life long) my wife and I had made. However, when I was asked to leave, while disappointed, I did so with no regrets. I've heard that I am looked upon as a trouble maker by the "new team," and that's too bad, given that no one was a bigger fan and advocate for promoting that community while out on the road and meeting new riders. My hope is that I might continue to stay in contact with many of the friends that I have made as part of the new communities that I am now making time to visit. My loyalty to one caused me to overlook many, but I am trying to change that, thus look forward to being a member in good standing here as well as other sites.

    I've learned a few things along the way, some of which have surprised me and some I have experienced many times before. I have only been known on the "internet" as this guy named "Wheels." As such, I have gotten to know many who, like me, also want to enjoy this fantastic thing we know as motorcycling. It's cool to see a bunch of my friends from "another" community that I am part of and grew up in, enjoying something that they never thought they could. My hope is that those who I might be able to help, are able to "find" this guy known as Wheels and that I can share some of the valuable information that I gained from some talented folks from another time.

    It was made clear that I was no longer welcomed "there," and as such respected the wishes of those who asked me to leave. For me, I see no value in being a part of something that does not wish for "you" to be a part of it, thus no need to "recreate" a "new me." Wheels is who I am and who I plan to be. If that works, great, if not, so be it. No one has had more fun than I along this internet journey and when the gig is up, I want to be sure that everyone knew that Wheels has left the building and not one of a hundred possible identities.

    As such, I might suggest, and it is only my opinion (and we all know about that, given it can get me viewed as a trouble maker), that I too would suggest "letting it go," and instead redirect a positive energy to other site(s) and help them flourish. I have read that "everyone knows all there is to know about Goldwings," and yet I still see new bikes being sold and new riders asking the same questions I asked almost 10 years ago. While I am far from an "expert" (I added that for a few of my "buddies" that seem to follow me around on the internet, LOL), I still enjoy trying to help where I can. So with that, I ask that when and if you find someone looking for ole Wheels for some help on how to get out of a wheelchair and ride a motorcycle, I ask that you point them in the "right" direction.

    I have, however gone with a new Avatar that seems to be more suited for me. I hear that black is very slimming. LOL Wishing you all safe riding and enjoy the rest of your riding season and thanks for allowing me (ok, maybe not everyone, LOL), to be a part of this new community.
    May I say.........Well said!!. Simply saying I also with self voluntary decision opted to leave the mess of past times and to simply move forward to a new and better time.

    All of those whom I call friends most of them had already been under the POOF button. The simple values of good, honor, respect, and simple everyday understanding of others was no more. Yet I do see that some subjects of disharmony were added to the OTE as many fell in the simple discussion of such subjects, when such things were to be allowed with no intelligent contest and when intelligent contest was called personal attack by the ...........gosh no other word is there........cry babies. Lol!

    I do agree with Cruiseman when he simply says, this is all the past, time to move forward and make things better. I will try my best to help him and all who care to do so, as this community is already off to a wonderful start. All of those who do get out and go time to time are already here.

    To dwell upon things and to seek revenge and to harbor hard feelings only brings to self a frown. It is much more fun to just smile.

    Time to move forward and just keep your smile.

    This is also an American forum, with American founding and purpose. May it bring to all a purpose of community between real members beyond corporate and commercial enterprise.

    Cheers

    Kit

    Wow! I can't believe what is happening over there, but as usual Wheels, you remain the better man and maintain such a positive attitude. Truly admirable!

    Well I would give it a try but you know I am a bad person over there. I still can't figure out how they got me with my message. Hey Jeff, you watching all of this over here?

    Ooops, my bad. That was my recommendation (though it wasn't my idea, I saw someone else on here mention that elsewhere). Sorry to deprive you of that...
