I'm going to ask this - and I think I know the answer already as I used to run a few forums back in my street racing days - is there any Tapatalk support for TMBF ? I couldn't find it last night.

Not that i'm desperate to use it - i'm just a lazy twunt and hate my phone browser :lol:

There used to be many many years ago.

Don't think it's compatible anymore with the forum software :|

I frequent a bunch of forums both on browser and Tapatalk, plus I own my own forum, and this mobile interface is better than all of them - don't change a thing!!

I used to have tapatalk but there was security issues and they have now tried to push all users to use it rather than visit the forum through your browser.

They are also pushing people to use their services to tie you in even more

No......you don't need an app for any of them because they're all mobile compatible.

But the default linear layout of a forum can get a bit much on a small device.

The app refines everything into clearer categories and topics.....plus it makes it a lot quicker because you're not loading everything on each page refresh.

Every day is a school day! Less so now tbh - I bought an omega aqua terra and that does everything. I could buy a new rolex, or a new race bike and I can't afford both soooo... Yeah I'd take the bike. I used to have a tag, die as, nomos dress watch, but hand wind was a pain, leather, can't get it wet... Convenience is king. Coincidentally it's in the shop in Turkey (managed to find an omega dealer) as I got water in it somehow!! They are fixing it for me, but I feel naked 😔 You? Another thread perhaps.

Obviously a bit of thread drift but my wife gave me a Rolex chronometer when we got engaged 40 plus years ago. It's my only watch and I wear it everyday. So not really obsessed with watches. Fishing rods now, that's another question!
Back in the blue. No bikes.....
