Re: How'd we all get here?

I'm seeing more CBR's round town lately and when one pulls up to me, I'm wanting to say hi and, oh go to fireblades.org if you haven't already.

Then again I'm in my truck most of the time and for some reason back off thinking the guy would think I'm a groupie or something.

Anyways, I did a google search last year and have been impressed with the fellas, and gals, in this forum. As most of you figured out, I'm not quite on the up and up with technical stuff or racing like a lot here, but do enjoy the company and always get something out of it.

Re: How'd we all get here?

Same, did a google search the day I got approved for my loan (was skiing at Whistler at the time - you can imagine my joy to know that I had a brand new 929RR to go home to, so going home, for once, wasn't a bad thing...

Anyway, google pointed here, and I liked what I saw

Re: How'd we all get here?

I'd heard about Motobush regulars defecting to this site, and after I'd had enough of Motobush, I jumped on here and found a more mature gruop that has interest in the bike beyond polishing frames and hooking up neons. A couple member thought I was hunting Taz, but I'd had no idea he was over here. He eventually faded, thankfully. I like the community here, and enjoy the intelligent and spirited conversations, not to mention the NWS posts.....

Re: How'd we all get here?

I have no idea how I stumbled onto this place (old age/memory thing), but I'm glad I did. How else would I be able to irritate so many people daily?!
Seriously, this place is one, big, happy family - thanks Conq .

Re: How'd we all get here?

I was a member of motorush also. Don't quite remember how I got here though. All I can say is that I've never looked back!

Re: How'd we all get here?

I was walking around at a car show in Mentor, ran into a guy on a '00 929, we chatted for a bit, and he said that there's this site called fireblades.org where any questions I have about my bike will be answered. This was about 51 weeks ago

Thanks Conq, and everyone else

Re: How'd we all get here?

I had good luck on net forums with other bikes in the past...a great way to learn and share information, and meet up with like minded riders....

I was looking for a good resource when I was considering going to the Dark Side and getting a 929......I ended up finding this place instead....

Re: How'd we all get here?

I was a motorush person, because thats really all there was back in the day. Then Conq started this one....it was not long, and I followed him over here like many of the others.

I have seen a bunch of forums that have 'cards' that they leave on others bikes or cars that they see. it brings more to the forum...but I spread the word all the time when I see people.
