May I make a suggestion?

   May I make a suggestion?

   We have a forum specific to C14 stuff, and one specific to C10 stuff, but how about one for general rider stuff? I was thinking along the lines of a "Product Review" forum, with posts that take 2 forms:

1. I got this product, and here are the strengths and weaknesses.
2. Does anybody have this product? What are its strengths and weaknesses?

   I'm thinking in terms of things that don't go with the bike; ie, boots, gloves, jackets, pants, helmets, etc., etc. Maybe a sub-forum in the "Marketplace".
   And then possibly another one for "Good Deals", where people could post bargains they've run across. Ebay/Craigslist ads or just retailers having a clearance or sale.
   Whatcha think?

Possible. Lemme think on it a bit.

The C-10 and C-14 boards are (were?) designed for just the bike. It might be nice to have a catch-all board(s) for farkles of a general nature. Concours/motorcycle related, of course  :)

Suggest you take a look at www.advrider.com...

They have their forums logically layed out for the most part.  Not suggesting this site should BE advrider...  just check out the forum layout.  It works very well.

A separate forum for general stuff, farkles if you will, would be excellent. I spend very little time in the C14 section, and I'm sure most folks there could mostly care less about old iron and cheap carb tricks.

So yeah, let's do it.

I asked for that in the for sale section and got shot down.
