ZGGTR vs COG Forum
« on: April 28, 2014, 02:43:56 pm »
I am fairly new here and have pretty much stuck exclusively to this site. I notice many members here also have membership on the Concours Owners Group forum. What is the main difference between the two? Am I missing something by not reviewing both sites.

I'm an inmate of both forums. Each has it's own personality. I have benefited from information gained on both sites and will continue to avail myself of both.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Sorry, I should have said what gpink said cause that's what I think too. This site is kinda like a "private" sire whereas the other site is a little more "official". Each compliments the other in my opinion as like gpink said, I get lots of useful info from each.

Think "Family Feud".  We hate each other, yet still love each other.  Great folks on both sides with strong feelings.  A few folks drew a line and simply refuse to move it or cross it.

The two sites are not in any way connected.

This forum is privately owned by a gentleman named Rick Hall. It is open to the public at his pleasure.

The COG site is owned by and run by the organization Concours Owner's Group, which is a dues- paying, membership based organization. That said, their (our I guess- I am a member of COG) is open to the public at no charge, in that case at the pleasure of COG.

As both sites are privately owned and operated, either / both could be closed, closed to some members, etc., at any time. While open to the public at the moment, that could change (not that I suspect it will) at anytime- which is why I mentioned that they are both open at the owner's pleasure.

And yes, a lot of people are members of and participate in, both forums. Some people cross- post the same subject on both forums but certainly not always.

Like all institutions and organizations, each one has a 'personality'. From the forum point of view, there is not all that much difference but in practice, COG also uses their forum to notify people of events, rides, rallies, etc. that they put on.

This forum has more dead rodents participating. Not worth all that much but it does give a different perspective....

Hey Kirby, been a bit since we last heard from you, Kippy says howdy but is a little under the weather at the moment (feeling a bit dehydrated).  Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks at the Twisted Throttle open house, please make sure you get Brian there as well as his beautiful bride.

    Welcome omc!  just think of both forums as different tools in your Concours toolbox for the same fitting!  You'll be able to glean useful information from both! 
   Yes, I peruse both forums & am a member of COG( which should be another tool in your Concours toolbox), & I also post up events on both forums as well, along w/ posting on Sport-Touring.net, ST-Owners.com, ZZRBikes.com & the Motorcycle Tourers forum also... ;D

Kirby, personal attacks like that will get this thread kicked to the Arena. You might not get out alive.

Give it up Gary- he just does not listen to anybody.  >:(  I swear, sometimes it is like talking to a mummy.

We'll be there- Andrea and I but not Kirby. He wants to go but he forgets that crowds make him catatonic and stiff (easy boys!) with fear.

And yeah, he doesn't post much 'cause I won't let him. I am afraid he does not have that people touch like I do and could rub a person or two the wrong way. Not smooth like me ..... 'Now go home and get your XXXXXXX shine box!'
