Googled biker forum and this is the one that came up. I have joined others, but the people are not as friendly and the post count is a lot lower. The only bad point is that my ideal forum would have loads of 25 year old blonde ex bikini models who have discovered bikeing and need a ride out partner. Cobbz just isnt the same. :(

Originally it was to comment on one post - I had a similar problem. But I voted for the first one after I had such a friendly welcome - Thanks again :D

I joined this forum a little while ago when I was doing my CBT and then forgot about it while I changed jobs… I am doing DAS as we speak and while reading through some of the rubbish on the MCN forum I thought “I can’t be doing with this” and remembered I had once registered on here! SO I came back!

I like forums but some people join them and you can tell they are on a hundred other forums and make pointless posts (kind of like this ha!). I read a post on MCN and it was someone moaning about how poo life was and I was so shocked at how open this person was It almost scared me off. Suppose it did actually! If someone can be that open on a forum where they don’t know WHO will read their life story, I don’t really want to be a part of it.

I’m here to learn about bikes, learn from other peoples experiences, maybe jump in on a few rideouts and possibly make a mate or two along the way. I’m certainly not looking for spiritual guidance like some people on forums are looking for.

I’m surprised at how un-hinged some people are and how open they are about it. Forums should be light hearted and fun!!
