Hi folks

This forum has been going on for years and has grown into one of the best, if not THE best scootering forums online. We are regularly quoted on other forums and people from all over the world log on with the knowledge that they can get a niggly scooter related problem solved and get the Craic too.

Unfortunately our host/webmaster has had to prioritise his own position. He piggy backed our hosting with other web related tom foolery as he was repaid in kind by a member who did metal fabrication etc for him. So all was good in the hood.

That has now changed and without putting too fine a point on it...........

UNLESS WE FIND A SPONSOR TO PAY THE £9.99 A MONTH TO HOST THIS SITE IT WILL CEASE TO EXIST AT THE END OF THIS MONTH

We have talked about subs, joining fee etc etc but that would need administrated and you would need a treasurer etc etc. Sponsorship seems the only option......

So, critical time folks.

This is good news. Thanks to Adam for stepping up to the mark and to Paul for all his hard work.

It would be shame to lose this excellent forum. I do this and the Facebook think but find the forum better personally. :D

Hi as you can see I don’t very often post. I always feel a little guilty for this. BUT I do read and enjoy the site very much and have used much useful information. In my favor I do ride my LML every day. So on behalf of the readers of this web site thanks and to rest of the posts keep up the good work

Thats great news, thanks Tassoman, this forum has to be one of the best, even if it has gone a little quiet lately.
Come on guys, lets start using this site again instead of facebook.

Good man. May be a bit early but do we have a timeline for this change and will all the stuff on the forum be transferred or is it a case of starting again. i only ask as i do not want to delete all the pictures of the scooter babes i have.

Adam,

Thank you my friend. I think we all owe you a debt of gratitude. :P

I also think that you should be our official LML provider re parts and sales. By this I mean that we should promote you as our chosen dealer for all LML needs.

Congrats also to Tony Dunn for one of the best comments made on this subject. Lets use OUR forum and get this thing alive again.
