A "friend" on a forum is your cyber buddy. A request is usually based on a history of reading one's posts and agreeing/relating/finding them funny - whatever. You then end up with a collection of friends that is displayed on your profile page. With that collection of friends, you can develop an online clique - the techie nerds, the rugged off roaders, the goof balls, the smart asses, the stoners, the jocks...oh wait, now I'm thinking of high school.
It does not seem to be used much on this forum. When I had my Sportster and was a regular on the XLF Forum, it was a very commonly used feature, adding another element of interest to the online community.
