I was thinking today how many times this site has been my main (and sometimes only) source of information and ideas for my bike. By referencing this site I've been pointed to the cheapest sources on the web for things like tires, batteries, pipes, mirrors, grips, headlight bulbs, etc. I also find out about useful and nifty things like UFO lights, riding techniques, and recalls. To make a long story short, I'm often surprised at how many members are very active at being interactive , but don't support the guy who owns this board. This place is a unique resource and I'd really like to keep it vibrant and alive for years to come. For me, I use my ebill service and send CarKnee $5 a month. I don't miss it, and it's been an awesome investment. In the end, I've saved far more $$ than I've donated - not a bad deal I think. I believe for many it's simply a matter of going through the hassle that prevents them from donating. So please consider how much time and attention you give to this board verses other things you don't even question paying for (like magazine subscriptions , or pay sites [/emoticons/emotion-4.gif] for example) and send a little CarKnee's way. Thanks.
