My bookmarked stopped working again. Do they change the address of this forum weekly now? Every time I assume it's gone until I find the URL again.

Even this off topic section hasn't had a post in nearly 3 weeks. Is it time to turn off the lights yet?

Should someone perhaps maybe set up a BNF FB group?
You know, just in case....
Just a bike & a place to ride.

That looks like Malcolm Turnbull. I wonder if he rides? He's got a bit more spare time lately.

Don't they enjoy free car & plane rides for life? :?

It is one reason I found moving some of the ongoing rides here to FB a loss - killed the talk. Although there is likely a host of factors contributing.


Yes, I agree. Also, I just noticed that I haven't done any stats since April. I think I'll leave them for the moment and make a note to do them early January 2019.
