Copied from Neduro's post in Rockies, because I think it's a great idea and it will benefit both local vendors and forum members:

This thread is our attempt at a solution. WEST vendors are welcome to post their events, their test rides and demo days, whatever they can come up with in this thread without fear of breaking the vendor rules.
Vendors: Show us value and respect and we'll return it. Waste our time with a seething pit of bottom-dwelling commercialism and no one will pay attention and we'll probably eventually tire of it and send you to vendors.
Inmates: This is not the place to put your gripe with the service department or etc. You, after all, are welcome to start a thread on the topic, while the dealers are not. In other words, this is not the place for your pet urinary olympiad, and if you put it here, we'll boot it.
If you own a business and want to invite advriders, please make use of the thread. General SPAM will not be tolerated, and repeated abuse will lead to a ban.
I will un-stick this thread in a week or so, after people notice it.
