I never heard of VS until it bought ADV Rider. Unlike you I'm not convinced they will destroy the other forum but only time will tell. So far I have seen no significant change.I see what VS did to 1200+ other sites. I dislike using that software. So I am at both sites until things go south. I am trying to build this site to make it cozy and feel like home, for the people who have not made the switch yet.
I don't think so. She got burned. She tried to reach out to ADV Rider but was ignored. It's funny because she was starting to enjoy being on it. It's very different from the social media she's used to - she does a lot of Instagram. She's really into the Dax right now and I know she posted a bunch. She flew to Monterrey during Spring Break. It was a very quick trip (2 nights, 1 day). She went to the local Honda dealer and snapped pics she posted in the NAVI thread. And then the ban hammer dropped out of nowhere. I was out of town when it happened. Honestly, their loss. Because they're not kind to new members and while it's a big place, it's the same people that post. And that number is pretty small overall.Is she going to come here as well?
I was surprised they didn't catch you sooner. As soon as I saw Gore-tx I figured it was you. There have been a few on the other site asking about you or wondering what you are doing. I sent one guy a PM but I don't want to get banned for posting a link here in the open.I was perma banned from ADV Rider in 2020. Did I deserve to be banned? Yes. Did it deserve a perman ban? No. But I think some mods made it personal and just won't let it go. Since then, I have rejoined multiple times under various names (gore-tx, kwabanza, furygan, etc.). I get bored and out myself after a while. I've been waiting for another ADV Rider. Glad it happened. Less bull, more cool.
They banned my wife a couple of weeks ago thinking it was me. They got it wrong. It wasn't me. I'm still on it. Lol! She was pissed though.
So far I have no real reason to trash the other site. It's still working fine for me and I don't believe in burning bridges. I think at least one guy here got banned for discussing the VS takeover in an "inappropriate" area.You can definitely trash 'em here in Chit-Chat, if that's your thing. I'd rather we just remembered the good times and moved on.
I found this place while reading a thread discussing the disappearance of JVB.I was banned 8 times from ADV, the last for 4 months. Nico called me an asshole, without provocation, and I called him an ignorant cunt. Bamn. Yes, a few times I deserved it, but only maybe half. I'm just tired of the BS over there, and the majority of the good mods quit, leaving the not so good. Not really worth going back.

I thought the way they "announced" the sale was, in a word, sleazy. Something that important needed a banner on the home page, not buried in "Fluff."
I think it should have been offered to be sold to inmates, if they wanted to cash out. Selling to a big corporate entity feels a bit like a knife in the back.
That sounds like a good idea, but could you imagine trying to get a group of inmates to agree? That would been a nightmare negotiation from Rudy and Baldy's perspective.
