why don't we just do one ongoing random thread? takes up less space I would think and if you want to look for something you read you don't need to remember what month it was in

We had a random thread with well over 1000 posts, but went to this format so that the month's randomness can be deleted later, taking up less space on the server with non-motorcycle related posts, keeping the site lean and mean.

Will,
that was down to a quick look at how much space a thousand posts took up and it was not that easy to search either due to its "randomness".
The site directors and owners I believe do not cull the posts as the month ends but keep I believe (do not quote this as gospel ) the last 2 months worth before condeming them to the Byte Bucket in cyberspace.

Its the 5th of November when a bright Fellow Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliment, where is he now he is really needed again to clean out the parasites & war mongers ? M15 & M!6 laugh and get over your selves.

I ride my bike EVERY day, don't really miss having a car except when it's a torrential downpour. Good thing I live in FL where that never happens

and a well seasoned bone in NY strip is a nice way to start the day

I'd probably ride everyday too but I bring my daughter to school in the morning so I just don't have the time. I made an exception this morning and just met my wife and daughter at her school. :whistle Hey, give a a guy a break, right? LOL!

Now THERE'S an idea! We actually saw sidecar racing at Willow last month. Awesome stuff and my daughter dug it. I wonder if she'd like to ride in one!

That is awesome. One of the guys at work said he would only ride in it with me if I would cut the wheel off the sidecar and continuously made it so that I would have to balance the sidecar off the road. Deal accepted.
