    Hence the discussion. Any idea is a good idea regardless of source. ...And that's on the EndUser Team.

    I would tend to disagree...any idea is just another idea, not good or bad. It's already been touched on that there are fringe issues that need to be considered and dealt with.

    It's good to get other thoughts...let's see where it goes.

    I should say "any idea is valid regardless of source".

    Anyway...

    That's it for my 2?ó... Let's let this pan out.

    I may be in the minority, however I agree with Rick.

    The new forum type format for looking at ads for motorcycles, in one word, SUCKS!

    I'm in the market for buying another motorcycle, but this is going to be the last place I look. It is just way too hard to wade through all the stuff, and find anything that's in any type of order or logic.

    Really? How hard can it be? [search] forum input what ya want.

    Me thinks it's the change folks don't like. Actually it's even easier now.

    What Ever. It's not like I don't bitch about anything around here.

    Is the advertising revenue of the magazine going to suffer if vendors are online.Maybe no magazine space no online space?

    BMW Motorcycles

    Other Motorcycles

    Apparel/Gear

    BMW Parts

    Accessories

    Aftermarket accessories fitting BMWs

    Sidecars/Trailers

    Things Wanted

    Things to Trade

    I'm lost on this "wade through", "any kind of order" problem. Kurt took the basis of the categories we have now from the flea market that used to be. There hasn't been enough posting to/for anything to get out of order- and the Mod Team has been able to help those with posting errors. OM

    "See Our Ad in This Month's ON!" comes to mind.

    "See Our Latest Deal(s) in the Flea Market" as well...

    In the Flea Market go to "BMW Motorcycles".
    In the upper right of the page, click on "Search forum".
    Enter the type of bike you're shopping for and click on "Search" or hit enter.
    Now you only have to look at the ads containing the type of bike you want.

    I voted NO as a way of pointing out the absurdity of the wording of the questions.

    Come on, you can do better than that.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    No. I can't. I have a sense of humor.
    And now it seems, the absurd.
