Participation (Lurker Amnesty Thread)

What's up folks? Cat got your finger tips?

Every car related board that I frequent has a thriving off topic section where myriad topics are discussed and the personalities are just as varied. Here well, lots of viewing of threads...posting....not so much. This board is the people. Our common point may be the love of motorcycles and riding, but I think our differences that can provide substantial value and this is the section where those differences come to light.

Need some info on a home project? I bet someone here has done it. Relocating, or need some info about a vacation destination? Just ask. I'm real sure one of us has been there, done that, or actually lives near by and could help with places to stay (or not to stay) and eat. Especially the eat part. Just because this is a BMW centric forum does not mean everything else is off limits by any means.

Not comfortable jumping in with both feet? This thread is your opportunity to say hello and let us know a little bit about yourself. You may be surprised at the camaraderie that first step can foster. Wonder how we post those super cool pictures, youtube videos and stuff? There is a site FAQ tab just above that has a ton of useful info on how the board operates as well as a Help forum for more specific questions.

So come on! Post up! You've really got nothing to lose, and you may gain a few new friends.

Not really. Just would rather be a guy who tries to increase participation rather than stifle it. So far 34 views....1 response.

Re: Participation (Lurker Amnesty Thread)

I agree with you. I have gotten some great info from members of this group. Much of it was not bike related. I doubt that I would still ride my 99 LT without the confidence, that no matter what happens someone here will point me in the right direction. Or if I break down in some place far from home that not someone here would respond to my SOS message. And I would do the same.

It's a great resource and one of the few things that are free (except for your generous annual donation )

A special thanks to the folks that keep the board running smoothly.

Re: Participation (Lurker Amnesty Thread)

But ..... if you own a BMW Motorcycle, what else could there possibly be to talk about?

All that's left are trivial things like family, religion, politics. How boring .......

Would someone please post a "boat" thread. Those are my favorite.

Re: Participation (Lurker Amnesty Thread)

I agree with Dave. It would be nice to have a forum for all those daily projects where we could pick each others brains for a little assistance. "Help Wanted" perhaps for a title.

Re: Participation (Lurker Amnesty Thread)

I was a G.W. owner before buying my L.T. They have a great site: GL1800. There are many boards, including an "O.T." board, that are all very busy. There is considerable socializing, also, along with info sharing and so on. I am surprised that I can keep up with this board by spending 10 minutes, once a week, on it. I for one would like it to be much livelier.
