As I see it, this forum is one of the better ones. The activity is about average compared to most. Sometimes the xt225 forum will go a couple of days with no new posts!
I think that KCW hit it on the head , because the bikes are so reliable, other than customizing and upgrades, how much of a conversation starter is it to talk about routine oil changes and new tires . Other than all the riding in between ,the maintenance is kind of boring. Not that I don't enjoy a day in the shop with the bike up on the stand, listening to music, drinking a beer, cleaning and checking things while the oil drains . It's fun but I'm not going to post about it.
Be patient American. Some people are shy about posting, but if they have a question or problem they know they can get help here. There are a lot of smart people here but sometimes a question will sit there with no responses. Maybe a case of not saying anything than to give a wrong answer?
Still one of the better forums. I love picture of the day, jokes. and bad ass bikers! THANKS les blank and all the others.
