How about including Vendor posting to vendors with X amount of posts so they earn their keep?

hello?

I still think it's a good idea.

Great idea. So when do we stop wading around in the kiddie pool telling each other we're big kids and go jump off the 3 meter board? The cool kids in the regional sections have great flea markets. Who's got something Airhead to sell?

I agree to this. My requests seem to get lost in the normal one.

We have a flea market elsewhere on the site. I don't see a complelling reason to build one here when we have a perfectly functional one elsewhere.

Sorry, guys.

I don't mean to be rude but 22 requests isn't enough of a reason? What could we be doing to make this request more compelling?

And is it really all that difficult to "build" one, or is it more an issue of moderation? Seems like making a sticky thread should only take a few clicks, or is there more work involved than that?

Sorry, guys.

I have posted parts for sale in the flea area ... and I never even received an inquiry. Nothing. The problem is that the ADV search engine is finicky and those of us who aren't 'tech savvy' get frustrated. And let's admit it ... I will go out on a limb and say that most Airhead riders aren't 'tech savvy'. If we were we'd be riding Oilheads or F series bikes

Luddites to the core ... The very essence of an Airhead owner.

Having a flea market for Airhead Only ... would decrease the noise we experience looking for parts ... and keep all of us curmudgeons in our own happy world. And by doing that, at a higher level, you increase the ability of us to keep these machines going at a reasonable price. You would also (in a small way) take bandwidth from Ebay ... and that's a GREAT thing. How about international cooperation? How about continuing to build the Airhead Network? This place has been amazing to me ... It has taught me soooo much ... Continue the education! How about the guy (lloydunknown: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=786477) who was sent the R80 heads instead of the big port R100 heads? I doubt that would have happened in the ADV Airhead Flea Market section. Just some thoughts.

There's already an Old's Cool Flea Market thread. It should work perfectly.

Y'all are just going to have to come up out of the basement and talk with the other kids once in a while.

OK. But we will only join the other kids for the commercials.
