Dragon

Doug, or “Dragon as most of you guys knew him, first became a pain in my ass about 6 years ago. He would constantly barrage me with emails pertaining to my lack of competency. I finally grew tired of him and banned him from the forum. My actions didn’t deter him. In fact, he just became more relentless.

After about two weeks of this nonsense, I threw in the towel. I figured if this guy was so damned passionate about motorcycles and seeing this community thrive, I might as well make him a moderator. It worked… I no longer got any harassing emails and the classifieds section he was put in charge of really began to straighten up. In time, Dragon began to kind of take over the forum.

See, I don’t know shit about motorcycles really. I know what I like and it’s relevancy to the outside world or history is actually pretty minimal. That’s just how I am… I’m a hot rod guy with a mild interest in two-wheelers. Like most guys with a fleeting thought, my interests fades in and out. As a result, this site has suffered tremendously. In fact, if it weren’t for Dragon I’m not sure this site would even be around anymore.

When I was busy, Dragon took up the slack. When Jason was busy or on the road, Dragon stepped in. When something needed to be done, Dragon did it. Hell, half the decisions Dragon made I didn’t even agree with; the other half I probably didn’t know about. But he made decisions when I didn’t. And he did what he thought was right with an unwavering sense of duty.

To do this day, I’m not sure why Dragon did so much for this site. I know he was very sick and I know he couldn’t get around much. He often told me that moderating the site was a good cure for boredom and maybe it was, but Dragon showed more passion than boredom allows. To be honest, I never REALLY new Dragon and further, I’m not sure he cared for me much… or maybe he did.

Today, he died and I feel like I’ve lost someone I knew a lot better than I did. This site is gonna miss him more than anyone could ever know.

RIP Doug.

I’m Back…

Well, I’m back… And, as you have probably noticed, I’ve brought some changes with me – new design, new functionality, and a whole host of other niceties that you are sure (I hope) to enjoy. To get this stuff up and running, I’ve skipped out on quite a bit of sleep. As such, I’m dragging my ass to bed just as soon as I’m done posting this.

I’m sure there is a bug or two out there. If you find one, just post it in the Questions & Suggestions forum. I’ll get to them once I’ve caught some shut eye.

Enjoy fellas…
