It was five years ago the worst thing in my life happened.
And y'all were all there helping Ann get through it all.
I wasn't aware that what all y'all did til much later.
I just wanted y'all to know, that I am still thankful to y'all, from the bottom of my heart.
BadWeB rocks!

BadWeB is a different kind of place.

When I spent a year in prison, I had people I never met sending me cards, magazines and money - and Joanne Lighton was actually printing out message threads and mailing them to me!

Before I moved to Georgia, I saw the west coast BRAG chapters and the SCAB group helping each other in ways I never have seen on any other forum.

I moved here, and this guy Glitch has an unimaginable crisis. People instantly began to rally around to help him and his wife Ann navigate the complexities of the situation with emotional and financial support.

There was Crusty's last trip to Australia where people were throwing money in the hat to help him get there, simply so we could read his snippets!

And there was the Crusty relay! I mean, a guy breaks down, and within HOURS there's a truck and trailer in motion. He was home in something like 2 days, with people literally trading off that trailer and passenger seamlessly all across the northern states.

I would say any one of these things is unprecedented... but there is CLEARLY a precedent.

BadWeB sets the standard. We have raised the bar, taking this outdated grey poupon colored message forum and turning it into a virtual refuge for the outcasts and stepchildren of the Buell motorcycle brand.

Many of us don't ride Buells any more, but here we stay... arguing our politics and baiting the trolls, meme-ing along and keeping the love alive.

It's definitely a special place, like no other.

Glitch, it was good to see you again, and I pray each day that you'll get that big letter M on your license one day.

We all had fun with the auction thingy.

But more fun helping a fellow Bueller.

I cant believe it has been 5 years already. ((

The people here on Badweb are some of the nicest, most helpful people I've ever met. It's an honor to be associated with them.

There's no other place like it.

It's pretty clear what makes the world go 'round. It's having the right kind of friends/fandamily.

What Matthew said, +1000. Love you too Dave, Ann just a smidge more. ; )

Smokescreen is no longer on BadWeB so I called him up to thank him for going to the hospital and taking care of Ann those first couple weeks.
In typical fashion, without hesitation, he says
"No problem brother, I couldn't have done it without you."

Too short indeed!

Ourdee, that was behind Erik's house some years ago.
What a good time!

Leave it to Charlie to manage a one-handed wheelie whilst drinking a beer. Wowsers.
