never! we, you and the boys built that place up from nothing to something amazing. knowing when to pull off is an art… and nothing left for it but good wishes and the hope that folks remember that it will always need a little tension and a lot of good content. the thing needs to be about something, and it has to have characters…. otherwise its about tires and socks.
but at the same time… i’d rather click in and read anonymously every now and again…. i’ve got nothing to add. arch, go give them hell. push buttons, and try to turn the light on for some fat guy that’s weighing his bike as if it means something…
see you on FB…
noel/swoop-vsalon needs ya. you are missed. never?! come on man-conspicuosly absent is perfect for parties, but not an open bar. as i always say to my gf before we go out-lets give the riffraff a treat.

thanks Chris…. I’m kinda tired of the medium and the conversation. I wasn’t enjoying what I was reading and really believe the forum should morph into FNL and Smoked Out rather than the chatter. Nothing else there outside of those conversations is a good read (to me). The behind the scenes dialogue is so different than the front of the house that I felt like it was time to move on. For me, it became everything that we’d left behind… and too much a diversion rather than an interest.
All I’ve got time for now is healing up this thing… it ruined the last year on the bike. And then rebuilding base, maybe trying to lobby for a DI2 Speedvagen in another year, and work. No time for more than that.
There been probs since the beginning. It was a bunch of wanna be cool ‘atmo’ folks who would do anything to be part of the crowd (like buy leather bar tape and stupid expensive cross tires). Too much ass kissing and cheer leading right from the start IMHO.
