    I understand all that.
    but...not just a seperate 2stroke forum. but let the airheads in olds cool have there own page. and then everything else. be it enfeild, Trumpets or smokers.
    just balance it out.
    olds cool ; airheads
    olds cool ; everything else. that would at least even things out and the everything else wouldn't get bumped three pages back every morning by the airheads.

    Over on the ubuntu forums, everytime you create a topic, you need to select a prefix, which I think works wonders!

    I think it would be great to have a dedicated two-stroke forum !
    But I am biased, they are my favorites. But, it's very ponderous to try to do a search for them.
    If you type in "RD250", for instance, this is what you get:
    "D'oh... Our sucky search engine couldn't handle that term. Got Google?"

    If that is done, would you then put the 2-stroke scooters in the 2-stroke forum, or leave them in the scooter forum ?

    Kind of a conundrum.:norton

    I have absolutely nothing against airheads / BMW's in general, but their sheer MF profusion in Old's Cool, poisons the well for myself. I rarely visit, as I'm unwilling to navigate through the seemingly endless, BMW postings.

    BMW has won, their beloved dominance in Old's Cool is all powerful, all hail to the perfection of teutonic engineering :bow, but give them their own damned sub forum, so the dribble of rotted relics of other makes and models, can emerge from the shadows, or at least make an appearance in the first place, without being buried in a half hour. :smile6

    Oouuu ... Ah..... , Mmmh .... Äh.... one moment please ... haven't we had this question about an extra old BMW "department" just a couple of weeks / month ago. ...

    The mentioned prefix or the dividing of old cool in two sub's would be OK, but not aother main bike department IMHO.

    Call it, divide it, subjugate it, what the fuck ever, just allow me to enter Old's Cool and find something other, than just another God Damned BMW thread.
