    Not as user friendly as before based on the comments.
    That's why we've picked up some new members recently.

    @NickJ , they've destroyed your baby. At least now not even a paternity test would establish a link back to you.

    If everybody over there that says they're going to leave actually does, it's going to go from a gusher to a dribble. I remember when the old "Chief Motorcycle forum" was going strong. Always liked it and still do. But suddenly everybody went to fighting like a flock of game roosters and when the the blood got dry wasn't nothing left but feathers and bones. They never have recuperated. Still going but just nothing going on.

    I was on here and there. More there then here. They did a great job of ruining the format. I skipped out just don’t care for the new face at all. Many will leave if they do as they say the percentage is about 93% who hate it. Time will tell. I’ll pop in from time to time see if they change it but I really doubt it. I’ve always said just cause it’s newer doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be better. But I’m sure we’ve all come across that at one time or another.

    We will see what happens. This place has the format that all of those members came to know and love.

    Just staying the course out here. Just like always.

    I’ll probably spend more time here now just more user friendly. I’m on 2 others Harley and Victory. Been known to raise a little hell on HD forum lol I’m to honest about the product they build for them.

    Nick, as soon as the "others' learn to google they be heading over. as an IT guy i understand the need for upgrades. But they skyrocketed it. Way beyond the normal for most users.

    That other forum was initially technically helpful to me but the trolling and vitriol could get as bad as a daytime soap opera. Some good folks but also a lot of pettiness and stupid name calling etc. too....that combined with this new format....that about squeezed the last drop of interest for many.

    I checked out the other site and they've shut down all the threads about the format change.
    Is that any way to react to it's members...?
    I think that is a overreaction to some constructive criticism.

    Sounds like the height of insecurity to me,....criticism is an opportunity to learn something new, to learn about something you may be doing wrong,.......with complexes that weird I would say there will be more mistakes by that team,.....Damn! I'm glad we got Nickj!!!

    I am a member on both sites since I bought my 2019 Springfield this summer. I have received a lot of great info on the other site and have purchased a couple of things on the selling area. At first glance, this format seems pretty similar to the new format on the other site. The thing I really liked was the various reactions to posts that we could give, beyond just a "like". That feature is not offered here, either.

    For now, I will visit both of these forms and see how things go.

    I see some really nice folks on both.
