new forum: love it!

I really like having the build forum... I spend most of my time in old's cool, and have missed out on a lot of builds. I think it's great having them all together. I've lost 1/2 day's work already

Great idea, mods.

I love that all these threads are in the same spot. I had no idea there were so many of them.

Same here. I really enjoy having them gathered into one place.

There is a huge talent pool here in ADVland. And part of the thought for this new forum was to help highlight and encourage those with the talent, ingenuity, capability and vision to share their creativity. And to make it easy to find and share the solutions and expertise that exists.

As far as I know there isn't a similar forum for motor contrivances anywhere on the net with our set of resources and size of viewing audience.

This should be a really kewl forum to share and enjoy the motorhead urge in us all.

I agree, this is gonna be a great forum for gearheads. Hell, it is already off to a good start! Thanks, JJ

I like it as well. There's a bit of grumbling over at 'old's cool' and I respect that, but I like having all of the builds in one place. I've seen a good bit that I hadn't seen before, and it's interesting to read new comments on projects that I've been following for some time.

+1 on all the above! Even though this section might turn out to be a really bad influence (my kidbrother´s eyeballing cheap streetbikes as we speak...), U can´t help but enjoy all the engineering gone into all these great projects, what genius minds that lurks within the walls of this asylum!!
