Itís really easy to see members arenít on here in any kind of numbers. Unfortunately, doesnít make a rats-butt of difference how easy it is for some of us. If the majority canít or donít want to jump through hoops, thatís all we need to have happen to tank this site.

Need to get this site fixed, no other way to say it.

Freakiní how much will it take in $$ to get to that point? There are more than enough guys here including me that if we had a $$ number and we had a plan to support, would be happy to pitch in more. Understandably I didnít put in a lot, but I can see my instincts were good. What was supposed to be fixed with what was donated is just languishing.

Did the fellow who has had the personal problems get paid already? Or is the money still sitting in a pot?

Not seeing ANYTHING new since TC posted mid-February. Riding season will be here in a month or two most places and if we arenít a player in the forum community, thatíll be a dang shame. I know the caliber of guys on this site, but the site isnít matching up.

Yeah, maybe thatís coming across a bit harsh. But I think I have a place to speak and a leg to stand on when it comes to that.

Thereís a Colorado again this summer out in Durango and potentially could have 20+ guys and bikes. But no one can get on the site to follow along or join in.

Logging In

I've noticed for quite some time that there aren't near as many people on the site as there used to be. And we certainly are not going to hear from those who cannot login. I believe that there are a lot who cannot get on here. People are not patient with websites. If a site doesn't work, they go elsewhere.

There are plenty of people on Facebook looking for answers to questions that the site answers so the need for technical information s as strong perhaps stronger than ever.

Right on those counts, Mike and Phil.

So, what can we do to get this done? Question still stands... how many $$ from where we are now is it going to take and has the money donated been spent and no result (if yes, what is update on getting that work done, 3-4 week updates won’t do) or is the person to be paid once work is done?

50 guys x $20 is the yearly fee if $1000 is the cost from what I understand. Get another $10 each and how about a fund to pull from. Heck, $50 of beer money from the next year from 20 of the guys that have made the Colorado Rally since 2014 would get $1000.

What can I do to help and get this ship righted, I will not put fire to feet to something I would not be willing to do myself. But would LOVE to see it simply get handled like has been planned already.
