    FOLKS VIEWING FORUM ON PHONES

    Would like to know who all is looking at the forum on their mobile device. Curious how this version of the forum compares to the last version. One of the reasons I chose to make the switch was making the forum easier to use in a mobile browser.

    NIRVE SKULLS CRUISER

    This one popped up on the FB marketplace near me for $100. Contacted the seller 19 hours after it was listed and as I suspected, someone was coming that evening to pick it up. They said they would let me know if the deal didn't work out. Received a message later in the day saying it was mine if...
