    I also added a homepage & mobile page link in the top banner. Hopefully it helps navigation on the main site and remind people about the mobile site.

    This weekend I might be driving to Detroit to pick up a YZ80 I bought earlier this summer. I'm not completely sure yet as soon as I figure it out I'll let you know.

    The weatherman says 90% chance of rain fo rme with a high of 45 Saturday and rain snow mix for Sunday so I think I'm going to stay close to home. I would like to do a meet and greet mid state before winter and of course IR needs to be there. Maybe we can pull that off in 2 weeks if weather permits, 20th?

Other than that I like the page, I wouldn't mind some of those business cards to pass out. Some more activity around here would be fun. My favorite forum I've ever belonged to is the M109riders forum. They're good guys and there isn't any real troubles. I've been on other forums where there are arrogant people that want to get into pissing contests and just plane fight. Hell , on the 109 forum I've seen people that have gone down get many new parts given to them. I once asked people to send my kids postcards and we got over 150 post cards from all over the world. The kids room was decorated with them for about 3 years, they're outgrowing them now. They wrote thank you's to every single person. I think this site has potential but I think people come here, join, see little activity and just don't come back. I'll do my part, we could do some kick ass RTE ( ride to eat) event. Someone should put one together for the fall.

    I did a bunch of slim down changes after chef made this suggestion.

    Today I went another step.

    After adding the TwoWheelChurch.com section I decided I wanted to trim it up a bit still. So I put all the sponsors sections inside one more step. It cleans up the forum section listing a bunch. This will make it look nicer until we come to a point when we will change it up again... for now it looks much cleaner.

    Agree?

    I've been working on this coming year...

    So to help us stay organized on rides... I moved any ride thread in the main rides section from one forum section to a past rides section. Maybe try to clean it all up every January. Also set it to not accept new threads. I think since many of these are pre-planned (unlike the short notice rides), this should help people plan things.

    What do you guys think?

    I also moved Get out & Ride to above Two Wheel'ed Passion.

    I think we should angle ourselves more towards riding than anything. So setting the forum layout needs to be done in the proper POV. Ya know...
