but in my opinion this is the best KLR forum so I wanted to show my support for it.
And that's the reason why I contribute to websites, too...
When I had my Yamaha Fz6, the Fz6 website saved me a ton of money and made my bike WAY better!! I learned about Rizoma handlebars, the Yamaha comfort seat, and several other tricks to make the bike much better, and in turn I spread a little wealth towards the site owner as thanks.. Same with a GoldWing forum I used to frequent..
I have no problem helping out as thanks, but I sure don't like it when I'm forced to do so, or I can't have access to even the simplest parts of a forum, or priority is given to those who donate in just bandwidth.. I seldom visit a certain other KLR forum, and a couple months ago I jumped on over there to see something that had been pointed out on ADV.. I went over to help a local guy with a question, and was barred from looking at the question because I wasn't a paying member.. Well, I guess I'll save my time for sites that appreciate donations, rather than force you to do so..
For those that donate to the site, Thank You!! (even though I, nor none of the mods see a dime of it) and for those that are here and don't wish to donate, PLEASE don't feel like you need to.. Seriously..
Truthfully, I'd rather just see people join the site and make posts, ask questions, answer other questions, and have a good time!!!
But the donations do help the website. I don't have any money into the website, but the owners have the site for a reason and they do keep it very secure, continuously running, and add features to make the site better..
