Hi,

Even though I have just re-opened the site to new members....I highly encourage all members and all new members to also join www.maxi-scoots.com . It is a great site and Maggie has the top site on the internet for all scooters and motorcycles. The people are also very nice there.

I just want to give a 'shout-out' to Maggie. She really helped me out when that 'certain something' happened on this site. She was great and very supportive of me and all of us.

Thanks again Maggie.

Sincerely,

Jeff

I joined maxi-scoots a good few years ago, and there were a few familiar names from British forums on there too.

For a very long time now if I try to log on, my forum name doesn't exist, my password isn't correct or recognised, and looking on the forum I can't find any posts or topics I remember making.

The only reason I can think of is there may have been an earlier version of maxi-scoots before August 2010, and as a possible excuse back then I had an iMac, the hard drive packed in and I lost a lot of stuff.

In fact I was snooping around on maxi-scoots a few minutes ago, and The Bern has just joined!

Indeed I did bud, it's all Jeff's fault Wink Smile Here will remain my main US site & MM my main UK site, but as Admin asked us to do it, it would seem churlish not to.

My User Name and password for Maxi-Scoots still work after several years!

I slightly stopped visiting the site as so much time was dedicated to the Rally and there wasn't any way for me to cross the Pond to attend. Wink

There was an earlier interation of the Maxi Scoots forum. It was a Yahoo thing and, even though the forum was user friendly at the time, in the end the forum wasn't very active. Then Yahoo decided to work their magic on all their forums and that Yahoo Maxi Scooter forum turned to sh*t and perished. 

Yahoo also killed the original Silverwing forum when they "fixed" it. Fortunately for all here JeffR had the vision to establish this forum before the SHTF on Yahoo.

Maggie resurrected the Maxi-Scoots forum on a different platform and it continues to serve the members very well.

Hmmm..... I clicked on the "register" button and this message came up.
"An Error Has Occurred!
Sorry, registration is via email only. This is helps cuts down on spam. If you want an account please email Maggie @ maxiscootforum@gmail.com Please send in the email a login name, email address and password you would like to use on the forum.

Is this normal? Shocked

Doesn’t sound kosher to me. But then it’s Maggie’s forum and she runs her forum her way.

Maybe you could send her that email and register with a temp password. Then change it once you’re in. I sure wouldn’t be giving out my p/w.

Rusty, this was strange to me at first and I didn’t join for a long time. In hindsight it was my loss. Maxi-scoots is a great bunch of people. I have been to the last 4 Rally’s and they have been a lot of fun.

My mate Brubaker joined Maggies forum a while ago. He hasn't posted much as he seems to be the only owner of the new style Forza 300 on there.

Yep, that's how she does it Tim, as soon as she activates the account she sends an email that welcomes you & in it she advises you to change the password

Gary here... I just replied to a post concerning electrical accessory additions to a Silverwing and realized that i should have done my introduction here, so there will be some duplication.

I've just "upgraded" from my 2014 Forza NSS300A to a 2006 Silverwing FSC600A; both have ABS and the same Honda quality, so I have little concerns about age or the kilometers already registered.

I want to express my appreciation to the organizers of this forum and to the members who contribute so freely and exhaustively... this is a wonderful facility to augment our understanding of the many complex issues that the manufacturer, dealers and their technical people don't always succeed in making it easy for us users to understand. As a "for instance": I'm 72 years old and have been involved with cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, airplanes and ATVs since my teens and yet I never fully understood what tire wear bars/ indicators are; in fact, maybe I still don't get it but while glancing through a new post here a few minutes ago, I saw a picture that I was able to zoom (thanks for the high-resolution image that allowed that!) and think I may now understand. I have a brand new set of Bridgestone Hoop tires and the same factory-equipped original tires at 14K km still on the bike to study and will do that shortly. When any mechanic would talk about wear bars, I would just nod my head mechanically since it seemed like i should know that yet deep down I really didn't know what to look for yet was too embarrassed to ask! I think that this forum allows for that kind of user... me.

Actually you are in the right forum, but you have responded within somebody else's thread.

Back out a bit, go to the Introductions forum, click on "New Topic" and start your own introduction thread there. That way, the entire thread will be devoted to your introduction and you won't be lost within someone else's thread.

I was on maxi-scoots years ago when there were also a few familiar Brits who posted on other maxi forums.  Then when I rediscovered maxi-scoots I was unable to log in as all my info and posts had disappeared. So had all the posts from the other Brits.

Me, too.
I stopped visiting as it was largely a forum for discussing the Annual Meet.

I still hit Maxi-Scooters but seldom. All their events seem to be on the East coast, not much action in the West. I do check out their maxi forum but that is about it.

IIRC the current Maxi-Scoots forum is the survivor of the original Yahoo Maxi Scoots forum. The Yahoo forum was stuck in the doldrums and Maggie rescued (and moved) it just before Yahoo killed all the forums. 

I suspect that everyone needed to re-register in the new Maxi-Scoots iteration. I know I did and I was running the Yahoo Honda Silverwing Scooters forum at the time.

When I tried to re-register, my emails were bounced right back until I lost interest in rejoining. The occasional look is sufficient these days as IMHO and no disrespect to Maggie, it's still stuck in the doldrums.
