Feeling very dumb

Post by FastPappy » Sun Sep 13, 2020 5:22 pm

Feeling very dumb right now since somehow I missed the existence of this forum. I can understand the last year that I've been sick but apparently all you guys have been hanging out here since 2013. :roll:

Fastpappy,

This is the latest and best version of many FJR forums since 2003. But that’s ok you seem to be better now :)

Trying to get the hang of this format but it seems much busier here than the other two forums and looks like everyone is here. What have I been missing.

Fastpappy,

Okay, here you go: 8-)

Other than that, the Search can usually find tech write-ups, et c. if needed.

Welcome to the sandbox. ;) Relax, and be among friends here.

Found it accidentally. Since I've been off the forums so long it popped up on a Google search but I don't remember anything back in 13 but that's what happens when you get old. :shock:

Now now. It's the latest (discounting FB as a "forum"). But most are good sights that don't need short shrift.

Welcome FastPappy! This is definitely the friendliest of all the FJR forums. Click on the quick links at the top left of the forum and take a look around.

When I first got the FJR back in 09 I went on to fjrowners then a few months later found the fjrforum but I don't recall seeing anything about fjrriders but that could just be my faulty memory. I do recognize a lot of the names though. A conundrum. :shock:

Welcome to the "other" place.
I visit two FJR forums on a regular basis and a third one less frequently.
I like each for different reasons.
'nuff said.

Welcome aboard! No reason to feel dumb. It's not like you started an oil or tire thread or anything like that. :stickpoke:

Hello. Welcome. If you are feeling dumb, then you are certainly in the right place. You won’t standout here.

Hey yeah. Maybe I could ride the yellow brick road over to see the Wizard and he could get me a brain. :lol:

No you don't need one of those to hang out here. Look at Marty, he getting out of the hospital before they do the brain implant. :twisted:
