I've been a forum poster long before the internet began leaving dial-up and have been asked to help moderate a few forums. I've been through the rise and fall of several. All forums that experience heavy participation from a wide range of people have to deal with trolls. Poor, incorrect and/or abusive moderation can drive productive participants away. Using only myself as an example, this forum missed three years of productive participation (for example:

) due to incorrect and abusive moderation.

But as forums age, pretty much everything gets said and done. Searches take the place of actual participation.
Well said Intuit. The first bike forum I joined was the Fz07.org and it was VERY active, obviously the newness of the bike helped drive traffic; it was cool to feel that everyone was on the same boat, a lot of people were experiencing things for the 1st time. Then came the S1000rr forum which held within it a breadth of knowledge while maintaining fresh posts although it was heavily divided between the OGs and the casual posters (like me). Seems like this place will be a blend.

I'm always down to go for a ride! Sounds sick, I've never done smugglers. That's near Tijuana?

It's a really nice stretch of road, the corners aren't tricky--only one decreasing (slightly) radius turn thrown in the mix, tarmac condition is superb. I'd say it takes at least 2,5 hours to and from if you run it all the way out to Campo from Jamul. Once you get to Campo you can take the boring route back (8 East back to SD, I guess depending on where you live), the extended fun way (take Buckman Springs Road up through Mt Laguna and into Julian, adds about 2 more hours to the ride I'd guess, I have no idea, never really keep track of time when I'm cruising lol), or just literally turn around and head back the way you came. I run at a comfortable pace--nothing that would put me or other riders in danger but I have fun, have yet to take the R6 out so I'm a bit anxious to. Just need to do my first oil change since I hit 600 I think today.

Do you hit the canyons very often? I used to run them couple times a month until the track habit kicked in, now i just count down the days to the next trip to Chuck. Whereabouts in SD are you? I'm in South Park.

:O I'm in IB. I would like to hit the canyons more often, but unfortunately I haven't done much but commute so far on the r6. I been up to ramona couple of times and I usually end up roaming about otay lakes. I just 4000 miles. Definitely down to ride anytime. I've been wanting to take a trip to Mexico for a while now.

Re: crickets in here..

well, got introduced to the process of an oil change on the bike. Just step one of fairing removal got me a bit riled up, realizing where the oil filter was placed probably put me over the top. I'm sure there's only so many places an engineer can put an oil filter but there?!? REALLY? (makes me appreciate the engineering of the s1000rr w/ the filter over the headers) Caught me off guard so I was left to hammer a pick in to use as a makeshift handle. The oil filter wrench is on its way but just thinking about the fairing tear down just to get to the filter, argh!

Didn't even bother putting the fairing back on the bike--that'll get done when the wrench arrives so I know the filter is secured on.

if i was you id look into a K&N oil filter with the nut on top so its a breeze to remove next time! and yeah the stock oil filter is a B**** to remove without a filter wrench
