Can you see it if you hover over here (I can't check as my "Mod" permissions allow me to see more than you guys)

Might explain the lack of entrants Guy? 
The envelope doesn't show for me on either desktop or mobile view of your posts. 
Your email doesn't show on your profile page in either view for me either. 
Maybe we should all add our emails to our signatures?

You should just tell our members if they won't help you out   You can find some Harley Davidsons to feature

That should be a incentive   LOL

Go ahead, everyone needs a laugh once in a while!  I raze the HD guys I ride with all of the time.  They all ride screamin eagle versions and still can't beat my 46 year old KZ!

Guys I would really appreciate you supporting the BOTM feature, 2023 was a little like "pulling teeth" to fill every month. I have Feb in the bag and March pledged but after that the well is running dry again. There must be thousands of great bikes out there (how about mixing it up with some 2 strokes) come on "don't be shy" reach out to me (mail is in my profile) and let's celebrate the great work you do in keeping these old girls rolling down the road 

I've never put mine out there for BOTM, not really sure it's worthy.  Mine is not a show bike, it's clean, but far from show worthy.  I ride that bitch hard and like to race it too.  Could you tell me, in your opinion, what makes a bike worth of BOTM nomination?  If I were to put my bike in for BOTM, what is it you need?  Background story, pics, what else?  In writing this I realize maybe mine is worthy after all.  I have a pretty good background story and could easily write a couple pages on the background and what's been done to get it to where it is at today.

My feelings on a BOTM is  as long as you are proud of your Kaw, Be it 200 cc   or 1300 cc it can be a BOTM
Sure we look for awesome bikes , but awesome is in the eyes of the owner.
Please help Wookie out.    Or he may have to consider putting Old Man Rocks bike up like it was for many years LOL

When I re-launched BOTM the criteria I posted was this
  • High dollar show bikes - yes
  • Survivors - yes
  • Restored/renovated - yes
  • Stock - yes
  • Modified - yes
  • Rare - yes
The main things is it's "on brand" -you are proud of it - and an interesting back story is an added bonus. Send me 6-10 pics minimum and the back story

I understand the desire for bikes that have not been awarded before, but OMR’s bike would not offend me at all. I miss his contributions to the community.

Hmmmmm, yes a year. I see no way to reach out to him... and JUST noted: we can't PM here, can we?

My only comm with him was @ the "other site", sadly I have no other way to reach him. )o:


EDIT: His last login @z650.proboards was in July of 2023. I did send a PM there, can only hope...

Unfortunately the PM system won't play nicely with the updated software the site runs on

Well, dat suxs!  Thoughts as to why?

Is it 3rd party? Does  Kunena Forum  not have their own add on? (only trying to understand)
