There is that old expression, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Well, change is a constant, a necessary constant, it is needed for healthy growth. I will admit to a bit of trepidation over the change of hands. Let's face it, Steve has pretty much catered to all out needs and we've become a bit spoiled.

But, bearing that thought in mind, I can't believe that Steve would do this without assuring the best for the site first. And I have no doubt the amount of time and energy that maintaining this site drains.

It's your baby Steve, we're here enjoying the ride. If you feel this is best for the site AND FOR YOU, then it's the right thing.

Thanks for creating this place for us.

Just because you\'re a paranoid doesn\'t mean they\'re not out to get you.

The forum seems to have slowed down again...especially today.

Anyone else notice this? It was running sooo fast!

No matter how blue it may get, there is always a rainbow in the sky.
Blue is not the fastest color, but it is the prettiest.

Steve,

I bought my first wing almost 6 years ago. I stumbled upon this community about the same time. This site has given me huge support, help and confidence in learning how to maintain, repair and enjoy my wing.

Motorcycling is my passion and this site has become an integral part of my motorcycling experience. Thank you Steve for creating it, and the moderators who make it possible and for all the members who make it the fine place that it is.

I realize that the site isn't going anywhere and that Steve and the mods are still going to be around, but I suspect that this is a significant landmark in the history of this site. Where it goes from here, time will tell.

Steve, I am proud to have met you and Dylan at Nassir 3. You have contributed hugely to the motorcycling community through this website. You have also created a special place where we were given the opportunity to help through the occasional fundraiser. You have touched many lives and helped make the world a better place.

I think this change was inevitable. I am sure it was a tough decision. You have much to be proud of. Well done and again, thank you.

Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer. George Santayana.

Haven't been on in a while and my was kind of scared to open this post. This forum has pulled me out of more then one problem on my wing with the past information and the current knowledge of the group.

Steve, take the much needed break.
Marco, welcome to the family.

Congratulations on your retirement as full administrator of this site Steve. I know full well how much effort and time that goes into running a web forum and I find it incredible how much one must be involved ina motorcycle forumwebsite to keep it functioning properly and to keep up with the demands that members place on an admineven thoughmy site is a much smaller site than this one.


I want to personally thank you for asking me to be the very first Guru on this site. At that time it really meant a lot to me to hear you say how much I helped this site in the beginning and to know that I was appreciated so much here at this forum. It was sharing my knowledge and experience, here,with Gold Wing folks that prompted me to start http://www.gl1200goldwings.com and I have never looked back since then, although, I have been back here many times to visit and more importantly, you came over to my site to join as a member to support and encourage me. This is characteristic of the person you are and have always have been here at this site, fair, honest and supportive and always willing to make things right.


May your retirement as full admin be joyful and stress free Steve and it is my hope that this site continues to grow and blossom because it is and always has been a wonderful place to be if you own a Gold Wing motorcycle.


Take care and enjoy your newfreedom and extra timeSteve.


Sincerest regards, Vic Belanger
