10 yrs on this Forum

Post by AMCQ46 »

just spotted that as of May this year, I have been a member of this forum for 10 years and posted over 14000 times, so 1400 post per yr, 120 per month, 30 per week, 3.93 per day........

I should get out more

and I lurked for 8yrs before I joined!

there are a few that have been here much longer that are still active like Sirch and PeteL, but who else and how long have you done?

Al, you should have joined when you first started lurking, you would have been here longer than me :lol:

Paul 'Stratman' is one of the longest standing members that springs to mind, and of course Al 'Firestorm_al' the member who's been here the longest, as it was him who started the site 8)

Tony didn't know you then :wink: :lol:

How could we forget Pete (Pete.L). Pete was on the Motor Cycle News forum like myself before we arrived here :D along with Stratman and Essexbloke iirc,

Chris.

PS. Can you remember Pete if Daz (Stormsmasher) was also on the MCNews forum with us :?:

Blimey!
That’s going back a Bit. I’ve been on here so long the brain has turned to mush and I can’t remember what I did last week
It was Daz and Wayne who had the most tricked out Storms back in the day. Any photos of Wayne’s carbon fibre Storm still left in the archives?

Remember me fellas? I joined 6 years ago, just popped back to say a final goodbye and saw Als post. Sold the SV1000S today and won't be getting any more but the two VTRs I owned were amongst the best and this forum was clearly the best by far - all the very best you guys, take care of yourselves and each other!

Live long and prosper as the Vulcan saying goes.
I'm so unlucky that if there is such a thing as re-incarnation I'll come back as me!
