New forum by Tandy and I?

When I check my messages on our LT site the following message does not appear:

I have it! The way the new owners of BMWLT are running the forum is not the way we envisioned it.

Tandy and I are opening a new forum. This time it will not be exclusive for BMW or LT owners but brand agnostic, and just about motorcycle riding and the fun.

We'd love you to check it out and of course we would welcome your participation. Check it out: Page Redirection

And spread the if you find that interesting

Wasn't that back when someone coined the phrase "post quality over post count", or something like that? Coulda been talking about me too, come to think of it! 😳

C'mon now Joe, be honest here, and tell the whole story.

You specifically requested that your username and all posts be removed by the Admins, and they complied, after much discussion and some consternation.

You were going through some personal shit at the time, which many of us understood (hell, we've all been there), but you chose to take offense and walk away from this community. There was quite a discussion among the Admins and Mods about it back then, with some people sad to see you go, and others just plain fed up with all your bullshit. You were then, and remain, quite polarizing on this site, as you yourself have attested.

So let's be perfectly clear - it was fully your choice to get nuked.

Since I now joined youride.us, will I be kicked out of here? If so, how silly... I am a member of several (competing?) forums, and all have something unique to offer.

Its like a BMW owner buys a Harley as a second bike, and get banned from the BMW dealer...

Seems right now it is a work in progress for them, from the Admins recent messages it seems they are feeling the pain and are putting in place a plan to move forward. There really isn't much on the new site yet as it is a work in progress. Hang round to see what transpires, there are still lots of great people still here to help out.

I think all members here should be very aware that the powers that be have NO respect for them, or their opinions. Your private messages are anything but private. They are obviously monitored, edited and even deleted. You are nothing more than traffic by which they can sell advertising, and that is absolutely opposed to why most of us spent any amount of time here in the past.

R&A ndy can no longer post here as they have both been banned, AFAIK, for no other reason than starting a "competing" online community. Steve got the axe too, and they even blocked his wife's account. WT actual F??

Did you like the old LT forum? The one through which many of us forged lasting friendships? It's here -> Y o u R i d e . u s

We'll leave the light on for you...

Agreed - childish, to say the least.

And Wolfgang, I had to laugh out loud when I read your post. At first, it didn't make sense until I realized "that other" web site's URL was automatically changed to this one. That is so lame...

I don't doubt that a bit. Just pointing out that the registration process does not appear to be encrypted from what I saw. I'm no computer expert. Just something you guys may want to take a look at.

Re: New forum by Tandy and I?

I posted a couple of days ago that I couldn't find the site. Dan sent it to me. I finally realized that what I was doing was trying to type in the site name after HTTPS (note the S). That gave me a scam warning and booted me back to my home page.
When I typed the site name after HTTP (no S), it loaded.
So it does seem to appear as an unsecured site.

This one has no https either. This site has a virus warning from Kaspersky of a Trojan. Probably a false alarm but you never know. Your choice I will be at both sites as I can.

Thanks John,
Here is a quote from Andy on YouRide

Quote:
Lets just say, that as this time, it is as secure or not (in terms of connection) as BMWLT.com,

That said, I am actively working on a transition to https, because that is also a thorn in my eyes. I am not sure if I can get it done today, but we will be running a secure connection before Monday COB (I am going to be in Austin over the weekend and leaving early tomorrow)

Please post this, rephrased if you like and I will make an announcement here when I have the secure connection alive.

Re: New forum by Tandy and I?

I’ve been a member of the BMWLT community for 12+ years. Although, I don’t post very much, I enjoy reading the forums. I have learned a lot from this forum and met many great folks. I understand the frustration with current site and have registered on the new forum. I choose to keep active on this one as well, along with a few other forums I subscribe to. My concern is that we may unintentionally diminish the BMWLT community and CCR. As has been said by others, “CCR is not a Rally it’s a reunion of like minded individuals”. While some CCR’s have been better then others, I have always enjoyed them and look forward the next one. Seasons change as does everything else in life. I just hope CCRs do not fade away.

CCR won't go anywhere.

It's been promoted on several different forums for many years now, and it'll continue on.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
