I agree. I personally am more interested in British bikes, with French and Italian in 2nd & 3rd place, but I actually enjoy them all, including some other national sources not in this trio (USA, Canada, Japan, Belgium, Spain, etc.)
I frankly think it is the responsibility of those various parties to instigate discussions and questions in the area that they prefer. Sitting quietly and not contributing is OK but you only have yourself to blame if the topics don't touch on your interests..
And delete those topics you do not prefer. (I must admit I dumped a lot of that Old vs. New topic that just ran it's course!) It seems to me that if you get sick of reading about a particular topic, it is because you are, in fact, dim enough to read it!! Ha! Delete delete delete!!!
I will be happy to sit in on the new group and help Bruce and Bob gather up info on whatever old bikes I can, but I hope they will share and post hereon the CR some of their findings. I don't want to change the name of the CR to "Whoever-is-left-Rendezvous!"
