Hello dear members,

It's hard to believe, but this forum is almost 8 years old (in March)
During this time a lot of people had the opportunity to meet, make new friends and participate to Kamping trips or simply meeting for a Sunday ride

Would it be nice to make a small video to reflect these 8 years of friendship?
We could compile pictures and videos from meetup from all over the world into a small video.

What do you think?

Bert

Top idea Bert and maybe some of it on the intro thread to show that we are more than just a Q & A for Ks

Thanks Rick.
Lets see how others are feeling about this idea and then, we can start to collect pictures and videos and assemble them into a single presentation.

This sounds an excellent idea. Hard to believe its 8 years as I have only been here about 4 or 5of those.

I am sure there are some good video clips around too....souvenir DVD coming along I guess.

It's hard to believe our beloved forum has been round that long, it seems like only yesterday I was buying my red RS and searching for some answers. The first time I joined, 2009, we had less than a coupla hundred members. I was away for a year or so and it had blossomed into this amazing K resource and, well, social media site, too. I'm not a Facecrack fan - deleted my account five years ago - but this one gives more than it takes, and with its wealth of technical knowledge, humour, news and opinion from the members, I'm in to stay.

Thanks for making it possible, Crazy Frog.
cheers

When I read of things here it makes me realise the forum is more than technical, it has a very nice social side to it this is more than just about the K. Its also about those who ride them.

I think I speak for more than myself when I say it has become a way of life and of meeting like minded people from near and far to the point of improving outlook on life. I know my life is richer for those I have met here and especially those I have met on Skype or face to face.

When I attended the K meeting in Rome in Sept 2013 there was a police escorted ride out through the city on the sunday as well as the Saturday. Some people were videoing from the pillion seat with a large camera. Has anyone seen any video from that event?

Have you noticed that for the last year, I am not very active on the forum?
This is a deliberate choice!
The forum is doing very well and live to our expectations without moderation or administration.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask for another member to be the second administrator. (Just in case something happen to me, the forum should not die).
As the founder, I cannot delegate some of my "power", but having another person in charge would be enough to have the forum staying online and new members being able to register.
Please send me a PM if you are interested.The moderators will proceed to a vote to fill this new position.

If members would like to see more features like the picture contest or a video/PPT of the different meetings or other interesting subjects, just speak up and ..... take the lead. It's YOUR forum. If needed, I am always there to give a hand.

Who want to start compiling info/pictures/movies to create a show for the 8th anniversary? It could be more than one person.
Last year we payed a subscription to have a site where we can share files, but it's underutilized (See the download page for more information). This can be the perfect area to share this kind of info.

Cheers to all.
CF

Mental telepathy.

When I wrote my post earlier today this thought was in my mind: I love this forum but what if something happened to CF? I didn't know how to articulate the subjct so I left it.

I know it sounds strange but CF has made a big difference to us all and not sure its one we could do without.

Its a credit to all but also to CF guidance that it works with just a gentle hand on the tiller.

I am not looking for the job as I don't have the skills but I can think of a few who would do very nicely.

No skills are required.
Managing the forum is something that can be shared with or delegated to other members. The only requirement is to be an active member trusted by others.
Don't worry, I am not ready to die, resign or run away ....
I just want to share the key of the "kingdom" with somebody else.
