If enough interest, I'm sure I know someone who could make it happen.

Currently such discussion is all over the place. A "Riding Gear" thread for questions and reviews seems a great idea. I'm for one.

I never really had good gear before i had my Vee, but now i ride a lot more and find good gear actually more enjoyable to ride with. Researching specific items for input, or reading others experiences is definitely scattered, and being able to interact here is certainly better than reading reviews on other sites in a one way conversation. Theres a lot of good input here, and centralizing threads on helmets, gloves, jackets could be beneficial.

I think it's probably a good idea as long as it gets used. (Too many forums can become counterproductive.)

I am not for it or against it. But it is true you can get the forum less user friendly with too much soup to wade through.

We have "Strom supporters where to buy" that last had a post 9/4/16, "home page news" last post 6/28/18 just as an example of stuff that would not be missed. Take away or reorganize before adding another.

VSRI was never user friendly. That was what kept the audience a fraction of Stromtrooper.

Yup we have A LOT of dead wood in the forum sections not being utilized, same goes for some vendors as well. I see myself doing some pretty substantial housekeeping soon.
