You just have to click on the thread. It automatically goes to the first unread post. Atleast it has been for me.

That shows me all the threads with new post but where is the link that takes you to the last new post since you visited the site or even the last new post in an updated thread?
You'll notice that the top half is since your last visit, and the bottom half is updated posts. There is also a check box on the top one, so that you can filter that to include only your followed threads, or lots of other options....

Holy Christ! I've been struggling with this new format on a few other forums for over a year and all I had to do was ask one stupid question here to get it figured out!

BCSB you're still worth something! ?

for what its worth, my browser does not automatically scroll down to the most recent post
when I just click on the thread title.. I found this to be the same on R1-forum which uses
a similar format. It drives me crazy to have to scroll down every time.

Yes this place is dead. When i got my new bike this is the first plavce i turned to last year. I noticed it dead then. I had to ask a rider on the road one day how people meet up for rides nowadays. Facebook was the answer..i guess I'm really old to not have known that.

This place is just seasonal. It has been so dead though that I had to turn to Facebook to have a look around. Meh, I keep coming back to check bcsb myself. Like the format, hopefully it picks up some this spring. I've got some quality advice in my short time here on a number of topics.......I haven't always taken that advice. But still appreciate it.

Yeah this place is a ghost town. It was a much better site when a good ol flame war would happen, complete disregard for PC bullshit and some good old fashioned internet bullying went on. You can only read so many posts on body positioning, new riders asking the same old fucking questions and posts about which roads to ride, what bike to buy or which gear to wear.

When I used to post it was about the read and most of the time had no real intention other than to entertain the people who enjoyed my content...which I will admit became less over time.

Then shit got personal some how, I think it had to do more with some interactions with the riding community that weren't so positive, coupled with flat out immaturity on my part. Either way, my posts got crazier and more directed towards expressing some sort of belief system that stemmed from dark places.

Sad to see the state of this forum. But given than I basically single handedly shut down another due to my antics, I can see how the decline can be swift with lack of interesting content that actually has some humours substance.

This will be my final post in any forum like this, and some apologies are in order directly to Sikorski and the Moderators on this site. You know what for and why. I realize Im a bit of a nutter and trust me it all came to a head a few years ago.

I sincerely hope everyone keeps enjoying this hobby and this special love we all have for completely different reasons. My plan is to get myself back on the track. I shit the bed many years ago when I feel I have a talent to have fun and be competitive there. In the meantime im going to slowly dangle my way around on my new/old sportbike and see if I haven't put the fear of god into myself after crashing my fucking brains out twice 2 months apart back in 2012.

Shiny side up asshats!

PS, Lionel you were spot on. Good memory my friend.

Hey Don ?!

It has been around 5 years since the last time I was on here. Gave up riding around that same time. I recall a few (much better than I) riders having accidents that summer, and a buddy at work was killed by a left-turner... it all got under my skin and I called it quits. Lately I've been spending a lot of time browsing old bike photos and reminiscing about the good times. I'm also ~10 weeks since a ski accident in which I broke both my legs (bi-lateral tibia plateau fraction + torn meniscus in left leg, and broken fibia in right leg), and am seriously re-evaluating risk vs. reward for various hobbies. On that same note I've realized that when it comes to hours spent doing an activity vs injuries sustained, I've got a much, much, much better record with riding than with skiing. I'm also seriously missing the last bike I had ('09 K1300S).

I moved to the interior (Vernon) ~1.5 years ago, and there are millions of dirt trails nearby. Sorta/kinda thinking about getting a light dual sport to go play in the bush. Maybe in a year or two.
Jesus!

Hope you make a full recovery.

There are definitely moments when you need to evaluate what's most important to you.

DS is a great way to get out there, though not always the safest either depending on what other folks are around. I've had a few close calls. :)

Thanks!

I did have a KLR six-fiddy way back when, and while I hated the bike, riding "off-road" was a lot of fun. Also went out with Bill @ 5th Gear on one of this Husqvarnas one day, that was a hoot. Hmm... Lots of wants - I mean, needs - not so much time!

We all thought you left because of the great left turning bicycle debacle. :p

Sorry to hear about the leg tho - you should definitely look into some sort of dirt or adventure bike living up in Vernon. Say, what ever happened to that bike you were building up in your living room?

Fear not, I still hate 99% of cyclists!

I had that '78 CB400T about 99% finished, lost interest and sold it. This was well before I gave up riding, though. The '09 K1300s was the last/only horse in the stable.

It's been neutered since the ownership change. Then the new password boondoggle. Perhaps 2+ years.

My wife mentioned the crashes and a fatality on the Duffy this past weekend so I came to BCSB to get an update.

Nothing here on what happened but it was nice to see some familiar names in this thread.

I still miss the first Moto GP race of the year party, my conversations on here with the lady from BCCOM 😁 and the road conditions updates.

I don't miss the spiraling rider death count in the 2005 -2008 years, and our losing so many faces of riding Bog, Julia, the list goes on.

It appeared that DNA Spark and the Shed of Doom created a "value" for BCSB that made it an appealing target for Forum Accumulators which I hope worked out for Adam.

ADVRider continues to grow though now it has a paid option to avoid pop ups.

It has 986,636 threads, 37,430,494 posts is said threads and 379,129 registered users. The Canada Forum continues to grow and Steve G , well he is still Steve G.

I look back in wonder at the newbs who would tell us that they could handle a Gixxer 1000 for a first bike because they could manage the power.

I broke my wrist at a riding school last year and my carpal tunnel surgery really slowed my recovery plus I am now a Senior. we still ride two up in Europe each year ( Covid 19 stopped this year's trip and last year the wrist stopped my riding ) The 2012 Tenere is in Heidelberg. We did a 10K month long ride in 2018 Norway Sweden Finland and Denmark. We made it to Nordkapp and have now bagged Prudhoe, Inuvik and Nordkapp. If I go back for Tuk it will on a used KLR

My 2008 K1200GT was given to my BIL and so far it is still running. In the last 5 years it has had the engine replaced with used parts and a new but used tranny and clutch plus a list of other things. He knows to leave it roadside.

I am down to one bike in Canada a 2017 KTM 1290 Super Adventure R and it is stupid fast. and a lovely bike

This year due to Covid 19 our company was deemed an essential service and I have been working pretty well every day since the pandemic hit, and not ridden.

In many ways BCSB will always be like that BSC girlfriend many of us had and look back on with fond memories we shared, little moments we shake our heads at being part of and wonder sometimes how we got out alive.

Ride Safe
