Hey all,

Not to take away from this forum, but this is specific to club members.  With the death of the BBS and then ScootRally, and a few years have passed, I thought I noticed a gap: Lots of people aren't on Facebook (or were, and quit) and many aren't members of LCUSA and of course there is Modern V3$p@.

At any rate, probably for selfish reasons since I, too, ditched Facecrap and don't have other social media, I created a new forum: Skirtbikes.  Having to join 20 different for sale areas on Facebook or having to join up to every single rally page, rather than have them all consolidated in one spot was always a pain in the ass, at least to me.

Stefan is going to eventually point any old Scootrally stuff to Skirtbikes.

I don't know, maybe it will fail.  At any rate if you don't have Facebook maybe you'll find some usage in it.  There won't be any ads, and no one will track you.

There is specifically no political forum on there. It is not a place for back and forth R vs Dem vs Pelosi Vs Trump vs Howard Taft discussions. It's meant to be a respite from there and a place to unite over our love of Italian Ladies' Shopping Carts and a few other hobbies.

Hope to see many of you (again) in St. Augustine.

Mike

I moved the rally section up. If nothing else a central place for rally information is desperately needed across the community.

Don’t take it personally. These things take time to catch on and grow. Even then it requires a huge amount of energy to keep them going and remain relevant. You’re competing with things like FB and a neich free forum just isn’t going to compete  

 

just look at this forum, it’s practically a ghost town and the LCUSA has had a forum for over 15 years.

I’d try posting the info you want to see here and then once that’s established start to spin it off.

Very true, Mike. But hell I brought it up personally to a bunch of people I've supported in various ways over the years and can't even get a join forum out of them, even if it's never followed.

Everywhere I go people bitch about fb, and how you have to join every event just to get information about it, even if you don't plan on going, and then can't see photos and whatnot unless you join the event, plus facebook tracks you, sells to you, manages you like a commodity....and you have to migrate tons of ads....I figured people wanted a scooter place away from there (and I get your point about LCUSA forums for sure).

Just frustrated, more about the people I personally contacted not bothering than anything else. And bitching. Definitely bitching.

Might help here if you have a link, I tried your pic above and nothing.  We are a totally lazy bunch of moped riders 😀
