The Rules

Joining the forums is absolutely free! By registering, you do agree that you have read and agreed to abide by our rules and policies. (I will save you the time, they are here because we will pay the price-there you go)

The short version:
If you use common sense and are respectful and considerate of others, we would love to have you here!
-No Politics
-No Religion
-Nothing that you wouldn't want your kids (the young ones) to read
-Nothing that you wouldn't want your SO to see
-No "troll" posts

An exception is the Trooper Arena forum. It has its own rules. See if you really want to play in religion and politics.

The long version:
Our rules, policies and fine print:

You are responsible for your own posts; images, text, messages and any other content. shall not be held responsible for member-posted content in violation of copyright law.

Posts that contain explicit, obscene, vulgar or otherwise inappropriate language and/or content on will be removed.

Personal attacks will not be tolerated. You can challenge others' points of view and opinions, but you will do so respectfully, thoughtfully and preferably in a constructive manner.

To prevent a glut of oil threads and wind/windscreen/buffeting threads, there is a dedicated thread for each. for oil and for buffeting on 2004+ Vees and Wees. The thread on 2012+ DL650s is at and the 2002-2003 DL1000 at The 2014+DL1000A is at The 2017+ DL1000a is at and the 2017+ DL650A is at Threads started on these topics will be closed.

The purpose of private messaging (PM) is to allow for discreet conversations to take place between members. This privilege is not to be abused!

Therefore, we can not guarantee prompt removal of inappropriate posts. If you find any such post, you are encouraged to report the offending post to us in the "place request to moderators" thread.
