Sorry to see this happen. Thank You Gram for all the years I have enjoyed this forum and for all the work you have done to make this such a great place. The Clinic will be missed.

For the rest of you guys it has been a great honor to have met a bunch of you guys at the M&G's and the rest of you thru this site.

Don't forget that there is still a Facebook page for the bunch of us. It is a little different than here and you will have to learn who people are thru there real name instead of screen name but we can all meet over there to keep in contact and share the love of our Roadstars. It don't have to be the end we just will meet in a different place.

Truly bummed by this news. I get it, but don't have to like it.

I too check this site several times through the day, have met some great folks along the way and had some fun doing it. My trips to Celina with Curt, Kai, Mike, Turk and others and the trip to Eureka Springs with JD, Jim H and friends have and will continue to be some of my best memories. My hope is that these events will continue, though I know they will be tougher to plan.

Truly bummed.

Has been a great site and invaluable to the maintainance of my Roadstar, which I've now sold. But Roadstars still have a place in my heart and I've still been coming to this site routinely.

And I hope someday to buy another Roadstar. Is there an efficient way to download all the tech articles for future reference?

I've been coming here since shortly after finding my Roadstar for advice and to share tech info. Along the way I've made some friends and learned a lot. I understand the reasoning behind ending the site, but will miss coming here. As other have said, this is one of the first places I check each morning. If we could have a paid membership to keep the tech articles available I would definitely sign up.

If anyone wants to stay in touch with me I'm on Facebook as well - Nj Rich - my email is pastornj@gmail.com - my phone is 336-479-2050 - you can call or message me there.

Thanks for the great times and good memories

NJ

WOW! Seriously? I can hardly believe it!!!

I believe I signed up in September of '07. I've attended M&Gs in '11, '12, '13 and '14. Met a bunch of great guys and gals. Really enjoyed all the camaraderie here.

I, too, have dropped in multiple times a day... and lent and received a ton of help. My R*s wouldn't be anything like they are now, if it weren't for the Clinic.

O, well... this, too, must pass?

My best to Doc, Gram, and all the rest who made this possible, and made it a great place to share our passion for Road Stars.

The Road Star is dead... long live the Road Star!

See some of you on FB, then? It's just NOT the same there.......

So sorry to hear this news today. I check this forum several times per day to see new ideas and what is going on in our little community. I appreciate all you have done to keep this going as long as you have Gram. Do you have any idea as to when the last post will be? Need to get some of the tech articles saved.
I am definitely going to miss the camaraderie we share here. Feels like loosing an old friend.
Hope to see everyone on the FB site.

Very sad news indeed. I've been coming here since about 2 days after I bought my bike and can't count the amount of times that this site and it's members have helped me with problems and questions that I've had. And I've also met some great people, both local and from across the country. Hopefully the end of the forum doesn't spell the end to the meet and greets. I too am on Facebook, and am very active there. You can find me under my real name, Mike Batson Jr. If you search for Mike Batson you'll get my dad. I used to be just Mike Batson and then when my dad joined my ex wife pointed out that I should put a Jr. after my name to keep her from inadvertently posting something inappropriate on his page Thanks for you all your time and money that you've invested in this site Gram.

Sorry to hear the site wonít be around anymore received some get help here. All the people here were always willing to help you out anyway they could with advice and parts. Going to miss it a lot even if I didnít post a lot I was always reading what everybody else had to say going to miss everybody. Have a happy retirement.
