I've only been here since 2008? Seems like much longer.

I probably found the site through Google or an online reeference. I hit "Old Skool" first and then discovered the other rooms of the Asylum.

And here I be.

I had read Jupitor's Travels and went online to search for something in the book. I was dreaming of maybe riding around the world. This site popped up in my search. After snooping around here, I bumped into something called the Alcan5000 just finished the previous month (September 2004). I entered the 2006 version of the event in December 2004 and bought a KTM 950 January 2005 to run it. I entered again in 2010 and am signed up to compete in 2014 with my 690. This site opened a whole new world for me. My poor old Ducati hasn't been ridden in 7 years...

I bought a motorcycle and it had an advrider decal on the windshield. So I Googled it, lurked for a while, then joined the asylum.

Don't even remember. Probably an internet search of some kind looking for info on NInja 250s when I was looking to buy one.

I think that may have been how I found it. If it wasn't that, then I have no idea.

Damn near 10 years. FYYFFs.

Support (the Google brought me here)
The support here for self-servicing your bike is second to none.
Have a question- post it and get info in minutes most of the time.

Chums.
I don't know of anything else I belong to or give a shit about (other than ADV) where as I can be 500 miles from home, and you walk up to another dude dressed like Mad Max and you ask him what he's doing there and he says "following Canonshot's tracks" (three words) and you smile and know EXACTLY what he's talking about and you instantly have something in common. You lend him a wrench and some loctite, and he's got your back next time.


And I have a pesky KLR.
Doesn't hurt to learn new haywire knots and such for precision repairs ya know.

So unacceptable that someone said I really belonged with the inmates here...so much better, thank you....I PM'd fish and got a nice personalized acceptance....thanks to fish, baldy and all the old inmates who seem to lurk these days.....




and the emoticons fit me much better too..........


BTW.....when's the last time you got a chance to ski fast as badly as we know you can.......
Very funny, I think I got here from MRN as well. Someone had posted a link to a Ride Report. I read it and have been hooked ever since.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Long time member of the F650.com listserve for my F650GS and we would often see reference to ADVrider. When I moved up to the 12GS, it was a natural community with which to ally.

probably over 75% of the first folks were from MRN. They either got sent to Band Camp or just got tired of the micro managing. I can tell you one thing for sure, this place isn't ANYTHING like the first couple of years it was in existance! I'm not sure if that is for the better or not

I can remember the first year we were wondering when the 2,000th member would join. I think that happened around the 9th or 10th month.

I got here by accident
