It sure is nice to have a place to call our own, isn't it?
First, I'd like to thank each and every new member of this site for your participation. Communities like this only thrive when people such as yourselves, all rock stars in the world of big bike adventure, choose to play a part. This is not "Eric's site." It's YOUR site. YOU are what is going to make XLADV an interesting place to be.
Next, I'd like to thank the leadership team from Thumpertalk for believing in this concept and taking the time to invest in this online adventure. When I first discovered Thumpertalk about two years ago after purchasing a KTM 500 EXC, I was amazed at not only how large and vibrant it was, but also with the technological capabilities and the look/feel/usability of the site. It was at that point I asked myself: "I wonder why there's no big bike counterpart to Thumpertalk?" And here were are!
As far as where to go after that, it's really even hard to get my head around because there just is SO MUCH still to come. I'll be sounding off soon enough in some articles, product reviews, upcoming events, new site features and just general big bike stuff.
Feel free to reach out for any issues/questions you may have and I will do my best to see how they can best be addressed.
Still miles of undiscovered open roads to explore...
