So, where did ZG go?
« on: February 05, 2015, 01:27:28 pm »
He hasn't been on here since last November.  Was wondering what the next iteration of the Connie was going to be.

Been wondering the same. He's got to have another color by now ;)

I think he left, currently he is on the other forum. I think I know why he left, but it doesn't really matter I guess.
Brian has left the other one and I'm pretty sure I have as well, unless they make some changes over there sometime soon.
We each have to make decisions based on whether a forum is contributing to our lives or detracting from them.

  :yikes:....Look!, some guy named fartymarty is getting all serious and philosophical on the internet.  :P

OH WAIT! HERE HE IS: http://fartymarty.smugmug.com/Other/COG-National-2014/i-PCWK2B2/0/O/IMG_0493_WHERE_IS_ZG.jpg

Gumby may have more details he can share.

When I first got my bike I visited, or should say signed up, and before I had a chance to look around and decide if it was for me or not, I got a private message asking for money.

Oh well,  will just have to imagine what his next color will be.

Life is funny. Now what is really funny about this post is that you referenced people leaving 'the other one', and in the near- center, foreground of the very photo you posted a link to is none other than Glenn, the marketing director for 'the other one'.  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Yep, personality conflicts. Chet left too (Son of Pappy) when ZG did. Mine was with der fuhrer, et al. (hmmmm, should I capitalize the first letter of fuhrer? I will check in with Miss Manners and get back to everyone on this....).

Hey, there was a best seller by the name of 'You Can't Go Home Again', right?

Marty, want me to have Kirby cheer you up?

Brian

Thanks for offering Kirby's services.  ;D :thumbs:  I am disappointed, but I'm not depressed. They may change over there, or they may not, as long as one of my bikes starts and runs I should be able to continue on with a smile.  But yeah, I do miss ZG and SOP here. I don't know if anyone there will admit it, but I think you're missed over there as well Brian.

Don't know the man.

For those that do not know, ZG and Gumby both left for the same silly (IMO) reason. Neither one of them like Max, in fact they both had Max on their ignore list here. When Max was promoted to Admin they left. ZG said that he might come back but Gumby didn't say anything of the sort. I think that Gumby has posted here since though...

Don't get me wrong. I like all three, Gumby, Max, and ZG (notice the alphabetized order  ;) ) and I think that they are great guys. Personally I thought that Max was a very good choice for Admin. Gumby and ZG didn't like the choice so they left.

I'm sorry to hear that. With any large group of people there are bound to be people you get along with better than others. But for me, life is way too short to worry about it. I don't know any of them personally but have gotten great advice and entertainment from all of them. I wish they would come back.  :'(

This happens on every kind of forum...I belong to an atv forum and we had the same issue with one person that started to annoy some by preaching what he felt we should all be doing in life. I still visit both forums as there is lots of info.

Brian...you enjoying this cold and snow in RI? I feel like my bike is getting moved further in the garage behind the snow blower. One shocking thing I have seen at work is a yzf600 parked in the garage for the last 2 weeks, I suspect the person had been riding it to work and maybe abandoned that after that "blizzard"

As for ZG..i have loved checking out his assortment of colors and always wondered what would be next.

I don't think he is smiling because of the car he is in.

I still visit both forums, so I didn't even notice that anybody left. ZG put a lot of forum miles on, so it's too bad that he left.

The COG forum has some blatantly arrogant members that I find really annoying.
It's kinda like a cult, except there's half a dozen Reverend Jim Jones...LOL.
I could easily give it up....it's been downright boring since BDF left anyway. :o

This forum is better anyway.

For those that do not know, ZG and Gumby both left for the same silly (IMO) reason. Neither one of them like Max, in fact they both had Max on their ignore list here. 

I didn't even know there was such a thing as an "Ignore List"...LOL. Cool. Not that I'll use it, but I like the idea.

Don't get me wrong. I like all three, Gumby, Max, and ZG (notice the alphabetized order  ;) )

That's a sign of OCD by the way...LOL>
or CDO if you prefer (in alphabetical order ;D :o)

I've used both forums and I have no problem with the other forum but I prefer the Wild West with a strong, sword carrying, sheriff forum.  8)

JT, thanks for sending me the link to this over on COG!  :chugbeer:

What's up brutha's n sista's!! All is well with me, yes I still have my ZG and am still finding ways to throw $ at her like she's a dirty stripper working the late night Thursday shift!  ;D :P

True, I haven't been on this forum for awhile, I've made a change in how much forum time I spend online and have been really busy with work and life in general. I have no hate or ill will for this forum, it's all good and so are you folks!
 :grouphug:

I agree with some of the comments about COG, trust me it ain't perfect, but neither is my family, my workplace, or this this forum. If you can weed through the BS stuff there is still some pretty cool things. Like the rally's for one, for those of you that don't go on the COG forum you should at least go there to get the info for this years National rally, you don't have to be a member to go to the rally's. It's gonna be a blast, great location, great roads, great scenery, good folks, and lots n lots of fun night's for an entire week!!
 :chugbeer: :chugbeer:

Take care, be well, and hope to see ya at the National this year! I'll try to stop in over here every now and then to keep you buffoon's in check!  ;) ;D
