1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    It's on! Weather permitting, I'll be having my second annual New Year's Day Pub Ride! We'll be meeting at the PATCO train Station in Westmont, NJ at 11:30. After a short train ride into the city of brotherly love, We'll make our way to Finnegan's Wake onSpring Garden Ave, then the Taproom and the infamous El Bar. The only thing that will stop us is rain, so dress appropriately and bring anti freeze. This ride is open to EVERYBODY, by the way, and I might even spring for cigars if you indulge. I'm posting a link to the video of Last year.Click on the big black box below to check it out...

    Looks like the weather may cooperate as well...(I hope!). Partially sunny and 50 degrees. :D

    We should be starting out of the Westmont Patco Station around 11:30, in Philly at 8th and Market by noon to start out.
    I'll be riding the chrome stretch so we should be pretty easy to spot. 8)

    This year we changed it a bit and went to the soon to be closed Tritone instead of the El Bar. Heading back to the train station I got crossed up in a trolley track and ended up eating the pavement Nothing hurt but my pride...well that and a layer or two of skin off my knee. Here's the video.

    Sorry there was no video of the crash. It was on the way back at the end of the ride, and I used up the memory in the camera. 8)
