RE: Why?
Can't fool us.Tongue

I'm in lust w/the GS platform as well. This is the bike I should have been on 6yrs ago when I hung up the racing leathers. About 10 more days of riding this *@!%ing desk chair and it's sweeeeet freedom for this ol' boy. Just scored my new 90W Warm&Safe electrics and a fresh set of FroggToggs.

Mr Winter, I say unto thee...bring that ****.Cool

*edit*

Plus, after years of procrastination, I finally sent my 17yr old Aerostich in to have some minor indiscretions patched as well as having the new "non-wet junk producing" zipper set up installed. Aaaaaaand...really looking forward to seeing how my new Klim stuff handles the cold/wet. I rode with the Klim adventure rally air jacket all summer and was very impressed!

RE: Why?
As much as I hate the cliche of being a Klim-wearing GS rider, I have to say it's superior gear. I got the ladies Altitude suit last spring and I absolutely love it! Hot, cold, wet, dry, it's comfortable. You just have to layer correctly under it. I've been in 22 degree cold with electrics and been nice and toasty. I've been in 110 degree heat, and honestly uncomfortable but not too bad as long as I was moving.

ONE of these days, we do need to get together for a spin around your neighborhood...

I've always considered you a snowflake.

RE: Why?
I think the reason for the lack of activity, as some have said, has a lot to do with Facebook and other social media platforms. I have been active on a variety of forums involving topics from firearms, vehicles, public land access and brewing. All of them experienced a dramatic decline in activity as social media grew. The same thing happened with newsgroups when people started migrating to web based forums, back when that was the new thing.

The unfortunate part, is that with each step in this evolutionary process, content seems to go downhill. Newsgroups essentially required sending an email. It took a little more effort and as a result, posts were often better put together and more substantive.
Facebook and Twitter do offer the instant feedback people seem to crave, but a 140 character Twitter entry doesn't allow for much substance.
