It's a battle..

Staying on this forum has been a battle..

I got logged out when my computer did an update on itself and left me locked out without my password [my fault, I thought I had my password noted down, but it seems I'd updated it at some point]

Two password resets from Vertical Scope later saw me eventually back in to the forum.. for about two days, then it locked me out with the new password I'd created.

Since then I've been locked out and new password supplied by VS wouldn't work for me.

Finally, thanks to the persistence of Niall, a VS tech support worker, I'm back in again.

I had given up, and even asked SuzukiGirl to tell people I couldn't get back on here and to say I wouldn't be back.

But I guess I'm a persistent B'stard who doesn't give up easily.

So if any of you want to stay in touch with me in the event I get locked out again.. maybe send me a PM and I will give you an email address I can be reached through.

Even though I'm currently Stromless I like this forum, the people on it, and the Stroms... and I may have one back in the fold soon, but will be keeping the DR650 for the adventure/dirt riding, a Strom would be more for road and light ADV work [too bloody hard for me to pick one up if I drop it in the middle of nowhere with no one around]

iamsmiling and chrisbre like this.

Ock. in Oz

I ride naked and unafraid.

Hi Steve,
There's no way you can leave after 4,215 posts!
Keeping a record of passwords yourself is the only way to ensure you can log-in all the time......... well, nearly all the time!

Cheers, Stuart

Too many problem threads. Let's use only for further discussion.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
