    I had a run in with Polish very early doors, but I stuck him on ignore and left it at that. He might have done the same for me, I dunno. Unfortunately, some people rose to the bait which didn't leave mods much choice. I read some anti Pole stuff which was borderline racist and ignored an important chunk of our shared history. Given admin / mods can basically do what they like - they've never claimed the OC was a democracy - I'd say they could have handled this differently, I would have done, but you can not ignore the whole story.

    There are loads of other things as well. People aren't using forums like they used to, you have social media etc. Plus the ZRX itself is of a certain age - maybe ownership has dropped and the bike isn't yet a stone cold classic. So there are a number of factors in play, I reckon.
    Thanks for that a very good point was made!
    We might find that as the so called "classic " status gets conferred on some models ( hopefully ours !) things might pick up again.
    I still like this place and have enjoyed meeting up at several places (Oakham, Sausage and Ace) generally found you guys to be better than average lol.
    I don't use social media (facefook) so would miss this.
    Nige was an acquired taste but at least he came to meets so if you thought he was talking bollocks you could tell him ! and some of us did.#
    Climbs off soapbox !
    Cheers

    Brilliant, we thought we'd put all this bollocks to bed and for a while everything was running smoothly.
    Pheonix is now on a holiday for a personal attack, post removed and all quoted posts removed.

    Please play nicely people, cheers.
