    Exclamation Current State of Affairs...

    Looks like I'm heading towards a huge server upgrade, and will need to shut the site down for a few days, or remove it forever.

    My question today is... Do we go forward, or have we over stayed our usefulness? I guess what I'm looking for is feedback from our members, old and new... is Repsol Forum still a place for Repsol Riders to get together to share our ideas and love for everything Repsol, or are we just hanging on to the remnants of what we once were?

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    I know the Repsol community is small but I would hate to see it go.

    I've been using the internet since 1995 and one of the things I really enjoyed were the automotive forums. I know many of them have ceased to exist after the advent of social media, but from my point of view social media "pages" or "groups" fail to serve as sources of reference. For example, it is impossible to search for information on Facebook and Instagram. All you see is the same questions popping up time and time again making it feel like a never ending groundhog day. Boy do I wish I had printed or saved offline versions of so many threads with golden nuggets of information that users today seem to have forgotten about.

    What options are available to keep the site up and running?

    Option one; we shut down the site for a few days while its moved to a new server.

    Option two; we shut down the site forever as it's not being used much anymore.

    Cost is not a factor, just hitting a major server move and trying to decide if we make the move, or shut it down.

    Whoa heavy...

    So glad the forum is still here even without my positive input. Thank you William for keeping it up and running. I too will happily kick down some ends to help the site stay up and running. I would’ve been super sad to see RepsolForum disappear. The relationships built here are FOR REAL! I’m not nearly as active as I once was but this recent visit to NYC and meeting up with Brooks solidified my belief that there is GREAT value and benefit to having RepsolForum. I still have many, many people to visit with around the Country and the World and it’s all due to the hours of sh!t-talking done here...

    I’m still riding and believe it or not still upgrading my ‘07 Repsol and have much love for this community even if many have moved on. I hope RepsolForum is up forever and outlives all of us so that one day the ridiculous e-bike riders of the future can log on and read what real riders rode and how we interacted...
