Rename the Garage forum or kill it

Most people think it's a maintenance forum. If we really need a Premium Members only forum name it as such.

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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Does anyone actually browse the forum by category? I just look at subscribed threads and new postings. I don't pay much attention to where they're posted.

You would not see posts there because you are not a Premium member. People who post tech questions there can't get help from the general membership.

Pat, with you being the resident Guru who always responds to us in the general section of the forum I would wonder why Premium members would even feel the need to have their own personal section to solve mechanical issues with the Vee-Wee.

And, apart from the fact that you already have all the answers, I would have thought posting to the broader Stromtrooper community would be more likely to solve any problems rather than limiting the number of people who can read of the issue with the bike.

Personally, when I read of any issues posted by others, the first thing I go looking for in the thread is your response to the problem.

Thanks for all the information and help you provide on this forum Pat.

I always almost hit 'new posts' when I visit the forum.

Yep. That's how I do it. I start at the top and work my way down, skipping the categories I am not interested in.

I agree with Greywolf, it's kind of confusing.
