I think motor-officer titled it appropriately... "Club turmoil". Due to my great appreciation for the concept of a free world, I can't say that politics shouldn't be here. I can say though that before all the "turmoil" that this was the best forum on the web. When the s@!t hit the fan our great place to talk old bikes started a downward swirl. Many folks that have always posted, either post far less frequently or didn't have the stomach for the ranting and raving and quit posting all together. I find it rather unfortunate that a lot of the people voicing displeasure with how the club is operated, only signed on to the forum to have a voice against the leadership. If those same folks could balance things a bit with something to do with actual antique motorcyles, maybe we could work our way back to what this place once was. I don't condemn your politics, your opinions or your right to voice them. I do find a constant diet of it a bit of a bummer though. I know that the point could be made that if "you don't like it, don't read it!" but when politics is the overwhelming topic, you aren't left with a lot of choices.
