However I will say when Pat was editor she did seem to take a regular and active interest in the forum, probably due to being friends with many on here. Who knows, as many of Nik's friends use other forums maybe that's why he is less active; or maybe he wishes to divorce his work and home life. I guess you have a point about paying attention to the readership, time will tell. If you're right, people'll stop buying it, the magazine will fold and Nik'll be out of a job.

Maybe he would make more friends on here if he stopped being so arrogant and biased. Pat seemed to manage it all quite well and was/is very popular.

Ok, gonna put me foot down. Some people dont like the way the mag or fourm is run then fine, others like it as it is but lets stop with the personal insults.
Im not picking sides or the likes but ****ting on your own doorstep isnt constructive, clever or whatever.
Thats the last i have to say on the matter. If you dont like the way things are, there is a simple solution basically.

I really cannae be arsed trawlin through all 25 pages of this kack....
i was following it, n yeah basically the coverage of the Bulldog was crap, for what ever reason.....moaning about it aint gonna change whats been published...thats it...publish n be damned, i think is the saying.....and as most on here can verify...I have been damned on numerous occasions, ive been blatantly insulted n threatened....but in the end it really disnae matter..Ive had my say n dealt with the flak...nik will hae tae dae the same
Look at it like this...

If "Bikers" are say, now lets be generous 1% of the population...
Then say that those that buy"specific" custom bike mags are 1% of the 1% population
And then those that go on specific bike orientated web sites are 1% of the 1% of the 1%.....do you see where im going with this...basically...whats said on here or any other forum is so inconsequential to the general populace as not to matter....

Get over yersels....the lot o yea...
Not like any o us is getting oot alive is it!
Live love n dae whit yea like...

Later
Ron

Interesting to note Nik is back from Milan or at least he has been on here a couple of times today, but does'nt seem to have responded to any of the stuff on this thread.

Maybe he's busy catching up and will do it tomorrow.

But why should he ? He aint paid to respond on here, but I have seen for myself changes that have happened due to feelings on here. He didnt respond then either on open forum but tha mag changed.

This thread has gone on long enough.
Again, im not picking sides but his thread has become more of a school yard witch hunt. It needs shutting down because nothing new well be added here and no one can be arsed to read through it all.
If people have any questions about this, please ask the relevant people. If you have issue with anyone, again, PM the relevant people.
Thank you and goodnight.
