hey all, if anyone is still here anyway.  just wanted to rant about how facebook groups have killed forums.  of course this is partially my fault for opting out of social media, simply because it seems a step backwards for society to me anyway.  im an old curmudgeon at this point and i embrace it i guess.

anyway, just wanted to see who still frequents here and that im still alive as is my ol cb-1.  hope you all can still say the same and dont be bashful to still post here.  i dont want the forums to die!

I generally pop in to check the forum once a week but most people prefer Facebook because of the instant response they can get and the ease of hosting photos. Of course trying to find an old post on Facebook is almost impossible so that is where forums score much higher if you want actual information rather that just looking at pictures  Grin

I frequent here quite a bit. Some days I just check to see new topics that are posted. Other days, I will take some time to respond to a few topics, some new ones, some older ones.  This forum is a wealth of information!  FB will never come close to having the same value as this forum has.  It hurts me still, that the forum before this one, Honda CB1 dot com, fell off.  Like this one, it had alot of great info!  Some of that website can be found on the WayBack Machine search engine.

Stussels, i know you remember the dot com website. That is where I first saw your bike!  Henry Wang, I remember very well from the dot com days, because he also raced his CB-1.  He had full bodywork on his 1. He adapted Honda RS250 bodywork.  I also met a guy who I can not find today. He also raced a few CB-1s. He was a mechanic. He had a TTS Performance 485cc Big Bore kit in one of his racebikes! He said it was like a missile compared to a stock CB-1.

I feel your pain. I can only hope that this site doesnt fall to the wayside like the other one did... (FINGERS CROSSED)

I agree with you Stussells, I frequented the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Owners Group often, and it is no more. The Facebook group VJMC is very disjointed in comparison. Without fixed categories and good search functions the same questions get asked and answered over and over.

Having said that I am guilty of ignoring this forum for the past year or so, although that has mostly been due to dealing with a wife with dementia.
