Default Other forums suck.

Its impossible to get help online for my ZX7r. I'm a member of three or four sportbike forums, including the Kawasaki forum, and they're all next to useless.

Keep spoiling me, Bonneville Club!

That'* why I spend all my time here instead of on the Ranger forums.

Heck, even on the LS2 GTO forum, I didn't get any response to my questions.

One of the main differences that make this club what it is, is that this forum was created with a vision and had a purpose that was set down and then rules created to make that vision a reality. It seems to me that many forums are created with the same basic intent, but the vision and focus on that vision is missing.

Once that basic vision was set in place, by Jeff, BC took on a life of it'* own.

Now understand that I was not here when it was started, but that'* my impression anyway.

The one I was on sucked the worse. S10forum.com. It sometimes took up to THREE weeks to get a response, and when I did, it was usually some off topic story about something.

Then dodgeforum.com....... good gosh, I couldn't even get a response AT ALL on there for my dad'* Durango. It took them almost a month to respond on what kind of fuel filter it had.

I couldn't agree more. I'm fighting an uphill battle with trying to get a question answered on www.hondacivicforums.com.

I might as well post my question here - would probably get a better response even though it is a rice burner.

Lol! You might get a better response here, Mark. Remember that Boosty had a Civic before he got his first Bonne.

BC is one reason I will try to own Bonnevilles for as long as I can.

I do like/want other cars, and will get something else eventually. But depending on the car it will be hard to find a forum that can come close to BC.

I remember when I had the Cutlass with the 3.1, and I was PMing a guy on 60degreeV6 about his Cutlass and what he did to it. Without even telling him I used to have a Bonneville he just came out and said "you can ask me anything but I refuse to talk about the 90* V6 (I think he even stated the L67 specifically) engines....blah blah....I just think there are better motors...blah blah blah..."

Yeah, I kinda dislike 60*v6.com alot. You even mention a 90* V6 and you are pretty much on grounds of getting banned. They must think that their head warping, head cracking, ticking, knocking 60* V6'* are better than our much more reliable 90* V6s.

No offense to fellow 60* V6 owners on here.
