I just wanted to publicly thank WingAdmin for his help on several issues I have been having. Again, he has gone way above and beyond what should be normally expected of him. Thanks, WingAdmin. I love this forum!

I know what you mean, he has helped me with my electrical issues, it took him and Virgil both to get through my thick skull how to fix my charging issue....So I agree , thanks for a wonderful site.. Besides I met Twostrokes and that was awesome, I could have never done that without this site..

I too want to thank our " Wing-Adm "for this site and all the time that guy puts into this site. I have seen over the years how this site has grown, and it seems he has not run out of improvements ever. The time he puts into the
monthly news letter is beyond my imagination. How he finds time beets me ? He also behind the scenes, is helping us guys which sure takes time!!! So how does he do it ? He has one beautiful wife that is at his side
for one thing, that must understand :) he sure has made my experience with motorcycles a happy one.

One thing I like about this site is how it's arranged, the 1000's have their own area same with all the other models, in my opinion it simplifies the entire process of looking something up same with the how too's...I like that you can use the chat area for whatever...Not everyone can be a mechanic and not everyone can be a computer dude either but this guy is both, and darn good at both not only that but a pilot too...I find comfort just knowing you guys have my back if a problem with my bike were to arrise... :D

Well thanks everyone for all the kind words. I appreciate it.

How do I have the time? I don't! And you're right, I have a very understanding wife.

The monthly newsletters, I take the time throughout the month, whenever an idea comes to mind I file it aside, and start writing something up, so it's not a huge task at the end of each month (although sometimes it is!).

Littlebeaver, as for the organization of the sections, when I first set it up, I thought about what I liked and didn't like about other sites, and tried to make the best decisions I could. I think it's stood the test of time. I dislike sites that have tons of different sections that segment the conversations, and I also dislike sites that dump everything into one common area, so there is so much chatter you miss out on threads you might be interested in.

Over all, I think it's worked out quite well!

I'm so glad to hear that you guys appreciate all the time and effort that goes into this site. I'm WingAdmin's biggest fan, of course. So let me just say how amazing he really is----from a very close perspective. Not only is he a naturally talented (but also highly educated) "computer" guy. He's a mechanic of motorcycles and automobiles, a plumber, an electrician, a pilot, an excellent rider, an entrepreneur, and an inventor (and proficient if not an expert in all of those areas.) He's also a wonderful father, an honest man, a caring person, a great friend, and a good-deed-doer. He's extremely well-informed on current events, and he is constantly learning. He reads EVERYTHING! If there's a problem that needs a solution, he will find it. If the solution is something that doesn't exist, he will invent it. He's our personal super-hero. Even though he works A LOT---most of the time he's working on stuff that makes our lives easier, more fun, or just run smoothly. He shows love through the things he does for us, and I'm sure that includes all of you. Thanks for all the kind words about him. He deserves it wholeheartedly, and you have no idea how much it touches him to hear that he's appreciated. Who doesn't need to hear that once in a while? ;)

I had to read the author's name several times. At first I thought it was my wife talking about me!

Regardless of what he thinks or says, Mrs. WingAdmin, you made him what he is today. Thank you.

I'm REALLY looking forward to this riding season. WingAdmin has been customizing my new (to me) Honda Pacific Coast 800 to fit my too-small-to-fit-anything stature. He's also replaced a bunch of stuff on it to make sure it's running perfectly. I'm super, SUPER excited to ride it. I consider it to be the Goldwing's sister bike. They look so cute together in the garage. 8-) I'm hoping that with it made-to-fit, I'll be able to ride much longer than I was before on my little beginner bike---the Virago 250. I have a bad back as well, so it makes it difficult even without other physical limitations.

I've been telling WingAdmin that he needs to put a how-to section for the PC800 on this site too because he's done so much work on it, but I guess there's not too many of us out there to make it worth the while. It's a WONDERFUL bike though. I'm so happy with it, and my great mechanic. :) You should have him tell you how he was able to customize my handlebars---I think it's brilliant (of course).

I think it would be really fun to get to meet some of you local folks this summer and go on a ride together. We'll have to see what we can put together when the season really gets going. :D

Wow, not a whole lot I can say after a glowing review like that!! I obviously lucked out when I found her (ok, really, she found me).

I notice that she's uploaded a few pictures as well - wow, she's really starting to take part here! :) Mrs. WingAdmin's Picture Gallery

Hats off to both Mr and Mrs....there is a lot of patience going on with keeping this little world alive. I dig reading what everyone is doing, it is part of my daily routine (like I need another thing to add to my day) and I always learn.

I still have the (almost) daily routine of reading everything that gets posted here. I used to try to reply to almost everything, but those days are long gone. It's a fair task to keep up on reading everything, and then jumping into help wherever I can.

Looky what you went and started Seabeechief, and it's a good thing...RhinoWing with 17 posts you feel that way?? Really man ???? Think how I must feel then...Or someone like VirgilMobile, he has more posts than I do and he joined after I did I think..... what I dscovered on here is that it's not always about who gets the correct answer or diagnosis to a issue, it placing down your opinion based on experiences and thoughts, It's a win win solution to a person wanting to fix his problem,,He can check this and that, no matter how simple the problem may be, he will get a different prospective from many different guys...Besides it's so fun to read and see who gets the right answer...Problem solving...That's what drew my over here..I love that stuff..Never gets boring.....There's never much fighting going on here either...I like that....No huge ego's either....That's a major plus in my book... :D ... Seabeechief, thanks for posting this...and thank you for Serving our Country Sir.. Oh yeah, and one other thing about this site,,,it's personable, If you have a problem, there are dudes out here just waiting to help....whether it be a problem with a women/man or if it is a daughter issue, a Car issue a plumbing issue, whatever,,,there's plenty of experience here I'm sure...There is one rule though,,, It's the Beaver rule,,,Don't you ever trash our Admin... :D
