where is everyone
I've never known the board to be soo quiet even though I don't post much myself. I was out uninstalling right front brake pads until pollen chased me away but armed with lemon pledge I got the new brake pads installed before it started raining. the new left brake pads will have to wait for a dry day for installation then my 1200 wing will have new brakes all the way around

I'm here

The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

I check in every-other day or so to see what new postings there are and if I can be of any assistance or learn something new.
As Sir Tricky stated, I'm here too.

One other poster posed the same question about the 'lack of activity' of this web site.
I explained the quiet as, folks with questions come to the site looking for answers to their problems. They come, they search, they find a direction to pursue which fixes their problem and then they have no reason to return.

Remember, this site is very organized and user friendly and loaded with valuable information.

Again, I am here also.

enjoying the view from the saddle....... due mainly to the people and information found within this site

I'm here, and also check in every couple of days. No questions to ask, so I just check to learn something new or try to help out someone else.

it seems the board was way more active than it is now not only with problem solving but with ride reports and mods

Maybe some people are upgrading to different bikes. I know two guys who had 1200s, that now have 1800s!

always the first forum i check each day but not always anything new or someone coming aboard,seems they gravitate to several others first and alot dont even know the site exists until i inform them

did a search just now 4 different ways via google and in only in one search was this site listed and that was 2/3 pages back,hence is probably why we get less traffic from newbies

hands down there is better info here and more knowledgeable 1200 owners here,and the way the site is designed its alot easier to search for past threads with similar problems

Life just gets in the way and driving truck over the road doesn't help

I know what you mean mark, I drove trucks over the road for a couple years back in the early '90's, it was rare to get home
I came out of port huron, mi and made it over to London, on Saturday on the 1500 wing but my waterproof boots and pants stopped being waterproof, I was soaked from the waistline down. so I headed back to Windsor and crossed the boarder back into Michigan and went home. I had started out on my third IBA ride

So this thread looks to be over a year old. Is interest in our old wings on the downswing? What is the problem? Not enough tech support or parts supplies drying up? Too many newer bikes perform better? Anyone interested in discussion?

see ya in the lanes

There are several of us who drop in from time to time, myself at least twice a day.

Maybe all our work over the years got the 1200s in peak condition..those that are still being ridden of course.

The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

I sold my 1200 a few years ago, but this site and that bike have always been fond memories. I just clicked back in here a few weeks ago and was sad to see Vic passed away and the site seems to have slowed down. I had a GL1500 for a few years after the 1200 and currently have a '77 GL1000 that's fun. I've been on the hunt for another GL1200I or a standard but haven't found that "deal " I can't refuse yet (can't talk the wife into a trip to Canada for Vics bike and I don't know that I could hold that torch). I've been checking every couple days for new posts out here.
