Euro Regional: Why the Decline?

Back in 2006/07, the Euro Regional had about the same number of posts as Canada.

Now it has has about 35% of the activity of the USA's northern neighbour.

So, what happened?

Why did this sub-forum wither on the vine?

Are you sure it's not just the winter doldrums?

Bluhduh Food searchin' parties...

The economic crisis has probably splited the european riders in two categories. The ones who mentally escape through adv.rider cause they are out of gas money anyway and the ones theta every time the read the posts in here they look in their wallets and start crying like babies. In the european south that is... you know where the weather is god for ridin'...
anyway greetings from Greece, which for the time being is still in european union.
