Huh?   Didn't see any reference to GL1800s on that link.

The point is that there are a lot of long term active OzSTOC Members that have an interest and or own GL1800s, some owning one as well as an ST and who would like to share that interest with the friends one has developed within OzSTOC.

Sounds like a great idea, especially as some members are interested in the 'ST1800'

What says you @Brock?

I'm sure it can be done, but should it? 

I have no objections to other makes and models, or threads and discussions about other makes and models, there are already quite a few here: http://ozstoc.com/index.php?board=107.0, but a section?  My view is no.   

We don't (currently) have a section for Spyders as the current thread seems adequate, same for V-Strom's, BMW's or many other makes or models (I picked those examples as they seem to me to be most popular other bikes for our members).

If the Forum goes down this path, where does it end?  A section for bicycles?  eBikes?  Perhaps a section for caravans, boats, cars, utes, etc..

Cheers,  Williamson (AKA Michael)

Section for the ST1800 has been generated.. It can have its own section as it is a Honda product.

Can I have a section for Honda CT110 Posties?

I'm with Michael on this one...  :thumbs

I reckon it's a bit ridiculous to have a Section dedicated to the GL1800...and more so with it being placed at the top of the page, even before the "Welcome" section...

Unless it's an ST1100/1300, I personally think it needs to be in "Other Bike Discussions"...

That's my 2 bobs worth...  :think1

Should be plenty of good medium kay late models available soon since the PO is moving to electric trike minis.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
