If it helps to get the raffles moving faster, and we want to throw some money back into the pot, why not???

Sorry fireblade, but I was compelled to vote against your cause. Nothing at all personal against you, nedro, or the hondagals but, you guys/girls have won some pretty serious chit here, and I just think that Conq made the correct call on letting everyone else have a chance at the lucre. Besides, would any of you really want to win a second time? You would have a price on your head!

Firebladetoronto, I don't have much say here since I haven't participated in any of the raffles but your poll is VERY biased, your wording is much like a recent wording of a democratic newspaper on the recall election here in Cali.

'should be allowed to play again' and 'should not help contribute to the new raffle' do not represent an unbiased poll.

no offence but IMO your poll sucks!

Whoa,,, I thought I was reading a post from a buddy boof for a minute!!

I was thinking along the lines with our good friend FBT for a minute.............

But, after you bring up the cali recall issue I think we aughta recall all the past winners and get a moviestar, a washed up child actor and pornstar to get in the raffle action!!


After all I dont really like what nedro did with that bike he won. I never hear about how my % of that bike is doing!!

How about if a Mini Raffle was won, does that mean I cannot play again, I mean I spent more on the tickets for the raffle than what I won.

Fair's fair and for those of us who won a grand prize, well, I think we shouldn't be able to get into another raffle. Others need to have a chance to win. Just my $.02.

So if someone wins a lottery, they should not be allowed to play again? I just feel it would help move the next raffle along faster.

BTW, how is the spending going HG/HGT? Is it all gone yet?

The credit at Dan's shop is all used up. HGToo has all of her stuff on her bike and I'm on the last of my goodies. We both had to finish up the rubber on our stock wheels before we put on the new wheels....boy they're sweet.

It's very nice of Conq to continue with a raffle. I'm surprised there aren't more participants. The winnings are definitely worth the small donation.

C'mon folks, buy more tickets. I want to see who the next lucky person is.

Conq will answer this, but I would think mini-raffle
winners would not be excluded. Although if they were, my odds would just go up!

Right now I'm waiting for the third rear shock from Wilbers Racing of Germany. The first two blew out the preload adjuster. There's about 6K on the odometer.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I think the raffles cost too much. I would rather spend $15 for three $5 chances rather then one $15 chance.

Yes it would require more tickets to be sold but you would get more people (or just me) buying more tickets. And you might get more single tickets sold for $5 rather then the $15-20 we have been seeing.

It's all about the odds, but I 'bet' you would get more individuals buying single tickets, which would increase the odds for those of us that buy multiple?

So, as for now the $15-20 raffles I'm gonna pass up, good luck to those of you who do jump in!
