Here's to Glenn and 650.net

I just wanted to say to Glenn if he's listening that I've really appreciated his site over the last year and a half that I've owned a KLR.

Not sure why your board is down Glenn or if it is permanent, but in any case thanks for everything. I have benefitted greatly from good advice on that board, and I'm sure it has saved me thousands in bills at the stealerships.

I hope that all the great info stored on 650.net isn't lost for good.

If Glenn's site really is down for good then you will all see me here regularly.

Note this is not a troll. I'm not trying to stir the pot. Just want to express my thanks. I'll hang out wherever the best KLR talk is going. My only motives are to receive (and hopefully contribute back) the best info on owning, riding and maintaining our awesome bikes.

So here's to ya, Glenn. And everyone who is contributing to the KLR community.

Cheers,
650freak

ditto

I always enjoyed Glenn's forum and benefitted enormously from all the information found there. It was my reading on that forum which convinced me that buying a KLR650 as a second bike would be a good thing. After 8 months of ownership, the KLR had become my first bike.
Now, I will have two KLR forums to visit if and when KLR650.net comes back up.

I really appreciate the thoughts.

I'm working on restoring the forum to the way it was.
There is a basic forum up now, but the previous layout and forums are not restored.
Usernames are not restored either, you will have to sign up again to use the temporary.

Thanks for the update.

I'm sure a lot here are wondering "what happened?" Is there an ever present threat to this and every msg board? I'm relatively new to the cyber universe.

Sorry about your troubles, Glenn. I was really enjoying myself over there. MH

Glenn, since I know you're checking in.........For the most part, I enjoy your site but you really should consider mirroring the site on a different server so these issues don't become such a headache for you in the future. It really is a shame to see all that knowledge, wisdom, humor, and even the childish arguments lost so often. For the KLR rider, your site has been like the loss of the library at Alexandria. I sincerely hope you are able to restore it.

Glenn's efforts creating and operating his forum site provided (as still provides) me with more information, technical answers, reassurance that I could get help, and more entertainment than anything related to motorcycling I've ever seen. I hope to continue enjoying both forums. The more information the better!

Whatever makes you happy...
