    Got any riding stories to share?

    Stop in to our new forum where riding stories and passion for them are supposed to be shared. It used to be called “Passion” and was the original and first forum of this site. Recently the higher ups decided to change the name of the forum from “Passion” to “Riding Passion and Stories”. And also lower it’s location down in the scroll bar, where it has obviously been forgotten about. Since the name change and it’s movement it seems many have yet to locate it and the activity has decreased significantly.

    Check it out and contribute please.

    Dropping it down the list I don't have a problem with. The renaming was unnecessary and did more to push traffic away.

    The subheading that's been there for MANY years told you what the forum was for.

    Seems like a lot of stuff is landing in the "did you ride today?" thread. No epics to report.

    So it’s coincidental that the forum traffic dropped significantly as soon as the name changed?

    We should change "Riding Passion" to "DirtJunkie's Corner" and see what happens.

    any forum that is the first on a pull down menu is gonna see a bunch or useless traffic just by the nature of being first. so while the randoms there may have gone down, the only drop in new posts is the lack of the constant spam. let's not kid ourselves into thinking there was any real traffic there to begin with...

    I think the location is fine, but the name change wasn't necessary.
    The Steel Fleet:


    '14 All City MMD
    '12 Kona Unit Rigid
    TBA - There is a hint in the Purchase thread
