    Exclamation BoRn is out of $$$

    Well here's the sad truth - BoRn is out of money, it costs Dima and I about $50 a month to keep the site up and running. The only funds we ever had were from Tony's Track Day sales and we used those to fund the website and the occasional drinks when we did social events. I'm not sure if Tony will be providing us with any spots for this year to sell off.

    With that being said, its either we shut it down, give it to someone else to manage, have you guys donate, or come up with other solutions.

    Thoughts?

    I would hate to see this get taken down. How about a save born party somewhere?

    Born has, unfortunately, been dead for a while.

    It's an adapt-or-die world, and we've been trying to maintain a situation that flourished 10 years ago, while the people that caused it to flourish have been stepping away.

    If someone wants to take it on and adapt, I'll be happy to stay on as referee. Otherwise, the writing has been on ththe wall for years.

    Bottom line 75% of us don’t even street ride if ride at all - riding is no longer a social event like it was 10 years ago. Sure track days or maybe a random meet up. But the motorcycle community as a whole from what I see is dying and has been for years.

    We’ve kept the site alive just because of the memories and etc... but i feel its time to move on. Place is a ghost town and has been for a while.

    Iíll be pretty sad to see it go as well...but I also canít see a way to really Ďsaveí it, in the sense that this forum will never really be a very active discussion community again, like it used to be.

    Its true, sadly

    Do we have enough to sell it to a commercial thing ? My stromtroopers is now run by some commercial deal with adds etc. but not too obnoxious. I appreciate you have been shelling out cash and you should NOT have to do that

    I have dutifully posted street rides for the last like 5 years but got ZERO response. I think I was on 1 ride with bornies in that period

    I do say the sites ARE great resources for other parts of your life especially handy type projects..

    Well,, thanks again and have a good life,, I have

    I’ll miss the site and the easy resource. I like Rich’s suggestion though. Any way to sell ad space or such?
