but I understand your reasons. Thanks Gram for all you have done for us. I suppose I should copy my favorite tech threads now. Will miss being able to gather folks for the annual NW Starfest. NWers, let’s share emails ASAP! PM me your email.

Would it help if members went back to sending a certain amount of money monthly to defray costs. And find some one's that is savy enough to run the clinic as it is. Or maybe keep access to the tech page.
This has been a very sad thing to learn of. It has become a place where I can get lost from family and other malady's in life for at least a short time and see what others are doing or needing.I have made many good friends here and the M&G's have been awesome get together's.

I understand what you mean Gram and I know you have had some medical issue's in the past. Your Family comes first. I feel like I have known you for a long time and I guess I will on FB. But here it feels like loosing my family

For now I will watch what ever has to happen with a heavy Heart and pray that something good will come up.

I do understand the reasons. Having had a tech company for 20 years that I finally sold, I know how difficult it is to say goodbye to your user base. I have enjoyed everything about the RSC, and I hate to see it go.
This is a sad ending to a difficult year =( *hugs* all around

Thanks for all you have done, Gram. I've met some great people on here
I'll never forget all of you. I guess the FB group will still live, bit it won't be the same. I'll miss you all.

You built a great thing here, Gram.
This is hard to believe. Life without the clinic.

My roadstar has been, by far, the best bike I have ever owned. But finding the clinic was world changing.
I thought at first it was like icing on the cake. It has become more than that. It is a full meal, a feast. Everytime, everyday.

Community, family, generosity, brotherhood, respect......

The best people I've come across in this past 9 years have been from this forum.

Thank you all! And thank you, Gram.

We all know this forum has a strong technical value that goes beyond the great amount of intangible stuff like brotherhood and rider camaraderie etc. I'm also a member of a large automotive technicians website. Access to certain portions of the site, such as use of the search engine that is required to access technical archives, is limited to paying members. This encourages memberships, yet there are still plenty of current running technical threads and forum readings to entertain and draw the visitors. With the wealth of technical information already filed systematically on the RSC, this site is a great candidate to be set up similarly if its core structure was able to incorporate that arrangement. While I know this site has always proudly offered this information to the public for free , it obviously cannot afford to continue doing so.
