Has anyone seen American (Bill)?

Haven’t seen Amercian for a while. Has anyone been in touch with him? Hope he’s ok. He use to chime in on the tech stuff pretty regularly.

He left StarBike Forums...I got a PM, that he felt admins were calling him a racist. I don't think they did AT ALL...but, everybody parses things different. Anyway, he has moved on....probably went somewhere else...and I wish him safe rides and interesting forum interactions, where ever they be...

I think the admins here are fantastic. They are VERY MUCH, hand's off...and let threads sort themselves out...

That’s really sad. 😢 I felt he had a lot to contribute. We just got another SVTC owner who lives in Florida. Thought maybe those two could get together.

I did not think anyone called or inferred that he was a racist.

Sad to seem him leave. He seemed to have a plethora of information at hand. It's usefulness is up for debate.

If anyone chats with him. Pass along my good-tidings to him.

Tony...I think he merely has gone into Submarine Mode. He'll be back. We all get over things, and if the forum is a great one, as this is....that draws good people like a moth to a flame. A good forum, is quite addicting....like coffee and SVTC's....y'know?

I agree. Bill will be back. He's a good one...

Post Edit: "In fact, it was Bill (American) that even brought me here....he pointed this forum out to myself, on a YouTube blogger thread. I did not know this site existed, let alone the forum within."

But but but EVERYTHING about conservatives makes you “racist” to a liberal. 🤣🤣
In today’s “climate”, ya just need to have thicker skin!
In truth, I didn’t see where any admin intimated such a thing, and I also agree they seem to be pretty much “hands off” unless it gets abusive which is proper.

Both my wife and I had a Monster Mug fore and aft. I'm looking at something similar. I miss my sip, ride, sip, ride, sip, ride...as well!
I had the 60 oz size up front...and when I would go into a convenience store and fill it up...and when taking it to the counter to pay, I'd always wink at the gal/guy, and state; "This is my two state'er mug". I always got a smile...

With a 6.6 gallon tank and excellent gas mileage, your 60oz cup just means you pass everything EXCEPT a “REST STOP”!!
So your distance is not tank to tank but bladder drain to bladder drain!
ROFLMBO! 🤣🤣🤣
