Tom keeps it going. I love you man !!
I can't improve on what 'boot stated. It has been great to meet and ride with firstfz. My years of participation in this forum speak for themselves.

Thanks Tom for being an instrumental player in this forum. I waste way too much time here, but the people this board attracts are the best!

Thanks Tom and all of the rest who keep this ship afloat. My Gen 1 is a great ride but this forum has made it so much better in so many ways. And yes, as my join date and post count might possibly imply, somebody else usually says it sooner and better than I do.

You're a good man Tom. So many of the last years have been spent here, it's hard to believe. So many of my friends.

I owe you quite a bit, thank you.

Discovered this forum right after I bought my bike in 2011. THE BEST forum I have ever joined . What I have learned from everyone has helped me enjoy my bike and riding it more than I ever could have had it not been for this Forum.

Sincere thanks to everyone here, other members for all they share, and especially those behind the scenes that have kept it going and operating so well.

Like others I am on almost daily and always find something of interest. Wouldn't know what to do without it.

Thanks Tom so much for keeping a great forum going. Most (including me) don't always know who is responsible for starting for what is a great place for help, ideas, mods and so on. I've benefited from all these over the years. When I first bought my gen 1 I was constantly getting great information from all people here. I don't check in to see what's going as much as I use to due to life issues but it's nice to see this site still going when I need to get info. Thanks again Tom and all the others who contributed to the site over the years there are so many.

Thanks Tom, this forum rocks!! This was my first brand spankin new bike (all others were always 2nd hand to me) and all the info, suggestions, etc...were/was very valuable in determining me getting the bike.

I was new to working on bikes as I had never really tinkered with them and this forum makes it that much easier and makes my passion for bikes just sore way above the clouds!!

Thanks again Tom, but also thanks to EVERYONE who shares info on here you deserve a pat on the back just as well!!
