FarRiders Forum is Down (Dec 2021)
« on: December 29, 2021, 08:38:15 PM »
I haven't visited FarRiders for a while and went to browse the Forum only to find that it's "down".    Any info, or is it only temporary?

Been talk about it being down for a while with some having messaged its owner. The .com.au site works minus forum.
One day you will wake up and there won't be anymore time to do the things you've always wanted so do them NOW!!!
Remember there are 7 days in a week and Someday isn't one of them!

I hope that this isn't the end of Davo's dream, and the demise of FarRiders.

For the past 6 months or more I have been getting my forum name is invalid

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
I believe in the "hereafter", every time I go to the shed I have to think "what am I here after"

Ghostie's last contribution was regarding the GFR to Banana (which I did, and scored a new number for my pillion).  He was upbeat, but unable to attend it himself.  He's had a stint in hospital, so hopefully he's OK.
As for it being the end of FarRiders, here's hoping it can be saved.  It offers a different experience to the IBA, which has an active website here in Oz, as part of the world-wide orgaisation.
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

FarRiders forum is up and working again, but I haven't seen an explanation for the outage.   :thumbsup
