Lot of changes happening very fast. Might suggest to slow them down a little and not run the old timers off. Just my opinion.

Think of the forum as a set of tires on your bike, in order to maintain traction one has to change them out every few years or every few thousand miles.

 

I have read through a lot of Devens old post and the one that strikes me is the one from April when he announced the sale of the forum. He admitted the dwindling of daily post and the maintenance of the forum. Maintenance on software is critical for continuity, but when software reaches a point where it just can not be maintained anymore It's time to change that software as old software just won't do what you want it to anymore and replace it with a more robust version that will handle our growth to the next level, at which time, 3 years, 5 years down the road, Im sure John will be looking once more for new software.

 

Software companies, like Microsoft don't make money by selling the same program year after year..... They change it, make it better (sometimes) and then stop supporting the old software. Change isn't always just done because, in our case it's done because John HAS to.

 

Also, Keep in mind, John has several options to get another free version software off the internet, however he is buying the software to make sure he gets something that isn't just "Off The Shelf". It's something that I trust, if John is willing to dig deep and Purchase this stuff with his own cash, it must be worth it for us. I trust John whole heartedly in his decisions, and will support him and help him any way I can to make sure that his venture is a successful one.

change away, John. The forum was almost dead or at the very least, extremely slow :baffled: Give us a new fresh look and lets see if we can revive a good forum. :yes:

About us

The North American Goldwings Forum is a gathering of Goldwing enthusiasts predominately from North American (but we have members from all over the world) who love to share their passion for their Goldwings! We celebrate our diversity, our tenacity for riding experiences, and a common sentiment that the Goldwing has and always will be the pinnacle of the touring motorcycle world.  Our family of Goldwingers have many common interests such as touring, trikes, sidecar rigs, classic models, camping, events, impromptu rides and most of all enjoying and expressing our experiences with our forum family. We laugh when things are funny but are deeply concerned when one of our group is having serious times. While we are first and foremost a social group dedicated to the Goldwing motorcycle, we also have a huge amount of technical information and advice! As said by one of our Senior Members “What a fantastic place to be!”.  Drop by and join the NAGF Family, we don't think you'll be disappointed!!!
