Hey everyone,

Something happens to us bikers when we start talking over the tavern table. This has stuck with me. It became a benchmark in the hundreds of posts I scan/read each and every week. We as a group, well, we crack me up and make me laugh and make me smile.

I'm frakking PROUD to see so many brothers and sisters reaching-out to help other members in the early stages waaay before the trouble has begun to be identified.

I am posting for two reasons.

Because I want to offer a call-to-arms for the end-of-year EOBA Committee, please send me a PM if you have time to 100% commit, figure two hours a week from 12/1 to 12/20-ish but late-in-the-game it needs a few minutes every day. Adding 12/8/2019: there are no volunteers this year so there is no EOBA Committee. Next opportunity will be Summer 2020 although there is still no Manager named for the events.

Reason Two:
Its another decade behind us. Astounding. I want to issue another call-to-arms for selecting by member vote the 2019 Member of the Year. We have never done this before. Its about time we did. The world has changed and like 2017 and 2018, but to a greater accelerating level, 2019 has seen a beautiful melding of brilliant members with smart new members who graduated from facebook level into a technical level and that deserves celebration. Its frakking awesome in every language in the planet.

I appreciate you all helping me spend my $100 by voting for the one member you believe is the most representative of our Essence of Brotherhood in 2019.

That person might already be EOBA. If not, then this will result in EOBA being awarded, and its in addition to the normal awards. I will paypal the winner $100 usd and its global forget about map borders, paypal fees on me. We are global and who gives a **** about borders or rear view mirrors! I can say WHAT or WOT and we grin either way!

Please participate and pass the word. When you vote for a member, it can be anyone. Period. No need to explain. Your vote is your vote. If you vote twice I will only acknowledge your first post so take your time and vote your mind. Or if you change your mind then EDIT YOUR FIRST POST. Its a global forum. Please help me out!

I intend to announce the winner during the 2019 TOAST so who-ever is managing that thread this year please connect with me okay. Adding 12/8/2019: turns out nobody was starting the Toast thread so I started a thread, am hoping others will on-the-fly still help manage. Thanks.

If there are only a few votes then my job is easy. I hope you, my frakking fellow bikers, will vote your educated consciences and make my job harder!! Pass the word.

Adding 12/8/2019: as always, if the voted winner declines the prize/award then we will all accept it as Brothers and Sisters because we all understand no reason needs to be given. In that rare event the cash and EOBA award will go to the next in line.

Be safe this winter. Oh. And Vote.

Please PM your paypal email and let's get it done Brother! Added: paypal confirmed and award sent! Added: confirmed received, awesome!

Added: your new Badge is ready, programming disclosed that the new forum software no longer supports badges (badges are text and are the same for all the forums they own).

Please consider integrating your badge into your sigpic when you next decide to update. I am reminded every day how often you earn the award and I regret the new software change sux big lemons on the Badge front. Sorry brother we never saw it coming. If ever a window opens I will pounce for this to happen.

Member of the Year. Wow. This is a hard choice, as there have been so many that have offered advice, posted how to video and pics. For me, the person who has been the most help by posting videos, answering any question that anyone has asked both here and on FB, and is just an all around good dude is Bryan Mcmeekin. He gets my vote.

This is an awesome post. I lurk on here a lot more than I post. I usually try to watch for problems that people are having to see about trying to make videos to help out. This is a very hard decision to make because I think that most everyone on this site embodies the sense of brotherhood that this whole award stands for. I constantly see guys like, Jay Kruse, Rudy, churchkey, and so many others constantly posting and helping out.

However, this is all about who YOU think has been there and helped out. I totally appreciate my name having been thrown in the hat, but don't even think of myself on the same level as some of these guys. All this said, thank you to those who have said my name, but my vote goes to alanh. He is constantly on here posting and answering questions and helping people out. To me, that's what it's all about.

My vote goes to Alanh. He always gives documentation with his help, links, and any info you need to R&R your problem and this goes back many years that he has been a member. He is the overall forum Guru as far as i am concerned.;)

I started engaging with the forum last spring when I had a bunch of work needed on my Warrior and so many folks chimed in with great feedback and information all of which i'm very grateful for but if I needed to select one person that embodied the EOBA it would be Alanh.

I don't normally get involved in much, just a quiet dude. But your post Gilly was exactly the same thing I was thinking.

There are of course so many that are the first to chime and they all deserve it really. But as you say I can remember him helping out from my day one.

Totally agree man.

And I was going to nominate you last night but my phone died.
My vote goes to Rudy. Who else on the forum has their phone number posted under their user name.
Hmm, this is pretty cool. I think I'm going to vote for heftysmurf.

-I have to say first and foremost that the fella's that have been nominated in the previous posts are all valued members of this forum. To me they all go above and beyond when it comes to welcoming new members, sharing knowledge and advice as well as making the most helpful 'how to' videos to guide us on all things RSW. So thank you to ALL!!

With that being said, I am with 'bp1' and 'Gilly' for reasons they have already stated:

Alanh

Thank you all for allowing me to post up my two cents worth.

I have not seen somebody so devoted, and put so much effort in, and that all unasked, unpaid and often overseen


AZ, your name should be in here as well, so do not modify this reply (even if you have the power to do so)


With respect

This is the best group of people and the most helpful bunch of motorheads. You're all winners, and I'm sure glad that I dont have to be the person to choose only one lol.
