Re: Disappearing posts, twice this week

The issue is that when trying to bulk delete spam posts, unpaid members do not have a user name in color, so they are harder to spot. sometimes these posts get caught up in that. I am trying to look at each post to insure that it's spam, but there are mistakes being made, and they are my fault. RB,...

Re: Disappearing posts, twice this week

I think I will take a 1 week moratorium fro cleaning up the bot garbage twice a day, and in a few days I think it will become clear what is going on.

Re: 2004 R1150R Normal oil consumption

The R1150R I just sold drank oil up to 20k miles, then it slowed down a lot.
This bike has obviously been babied in it's use.
Be sure to try and use the entire power band when you ride it, as it appears it's not fully broken in.

Re: disappearing post

Hi, 1. The forum is stable, it was never unstable. 2. There are Russian Bots spamming the board, and it takes work to keep it clean. Hundreds of porn posts a day, and the delete mechanics are not exact. Hence, the subject of this thread. Unlike recent fake news, our Russian bots are real. 3. The boa...

Re: Old Fourm members

I joined in 2013, the same year that I bought my hold over 2011 R1200R. Just passed 52,500 miles coming back from the MOA National Rally Monday. The bike is running better now than ever. I've had a couple issues which though disappointing were easily fixed. Transmission input seal and counter balan...

Re: Hello

I still feel a little cheated about that :(
