Fair enough, Dave

I usually just sort of lurk and read on these forums and don't post too much, though I think about it from time to time.  I've looked at some of your pictures from the drag racing and would like to check it out sometime

create a reason for people to

create a reason for people to post.  when someone comes on here and sees that most threads were last responded to several weeks and several months prior, it tells them that this place is dead so why should they participate?  you want the place to be more active, then do your part and add something to entice people to post.  keep posting frequent topics.  add some polls.  keep putting stuff on the site on a regular basis and that will encourage members to respond and cause activity on the site.

Maybe I'll round up some

Maybe I'll round up some local vendors to do some product giveaways on the site?  Maybe that would encourage people to drop back in.

i'd like to see this forum

i'd like to see this forum grow.  other places have similar websites where the local motorcycle riders congregate.  i'm sure it just needs time to grow..

I moderate a few different

I moderate a few different bike forums & they all have the same things happening. On some of the fastest growing forums I go to  about 15% of the new people never post or even come back to the site after the first visit. Those people are either looking for specific info on a problem they may be having or they are trolls just looking around. I ban spamers  daily who just sign up to spam a forum. This is a good Forum that just needs time to grow & I for one would like to thank Wes for starting it.yes

gee, wonder why i don't login every day?  because of the reason you gave that not many people post?  because there is hardly any activity going on here?  i gave some suggestions on how to get people more interested in the site and you somehow take it personally.  you wanna complain, or you wanna help make the site grow?  being an ass probably isn't a solution.
