Maybe a firearms section would liven things up? ;)

I'm amazed that some of the ones gloating at this site going down are active here.

I have always found this forum to be much more active. I have always wondered why.

Thanks, I appreciate that  ;D  ::)

I frequent both sites, I was a member of the original forum one month after it started.  Sorry it crashed with all the good info on it.

I have been a COG member since 2000 and will continue my membership until I am too old to ride.  :o

There are great people on both sites and it is sad to see some people think it is an "us against them" situation.

It's the attitude... minimum rules, no dues, and reasonable moderation make for an enjoyable experience...

Last time I checked, litigation was pretty much an "us against them" situation...

I just don't feel it over there.  Not sure why.  Seems like I get more information over here.

I think that happens a lot, you have various forums for the same bike, car or what ever and 1 will get a lot more action than  all the rest. I frequent several Gold Wing sites and GL1800 riders is very active, several others can go for days without a new post,

It's pretty simple.  This forum has been running for wht/  10 years?  Of course there are more members and more info ( the knowledge base will be rebuilt).  The COG site was never intended to be the main forum site.  I can live with both sites because each one serves a different function for me.

I use to be on the ZG site all the time at work, and now the new domain is blocked at work, so unfortuantly I have ONLY the cog site at work, it SUCKS.  There is usually not that much going on there and I miss all you

P.S. Silvera you changed your screen name?!?!

Women can't live without men.  Who would kill spiders and take lids off of jars?

My wife has to kill the spiders in my house.  It is the one thing I truly despise in this world. Doesn't matter how small either.

The behavior on this thread is why I like it here, so far we've had what, three different directions in it? Kinda like just hanging out at a campfire or tavern or sumpin'.

Way cool, folks. :thumbs: :grouphug: :chugbeer:

I'm still here. Been waiting for the dust to settle a bit. Also, I'm back east in Wilmington, Delaware on business this week, very intense. We're in the middle of winding up a short pre-production run and I'm assisting the manufacturing test engineers on the last build phases of the analysis instrument that I helped design.
