    Most forums would love to get 13,000 members.
    Why the navel gazing and angst about declining membership?  I just joined today. The HD brand is strong and will remain so.
    Be happy.

     ^^^^^^  Perceptive newbie. As one of the first 500 members (I think), I agree totally.

    How many of those 13,000 members are active?

    1% is 130 and I think that would be more than the number regularly active

    Well I'm a new member here, specifically because this is a specialist HD Australian forum. I've been on plenty of other forums as well, as we all probably have, but I don't want to talk about Honda step-throughs or hair gels or cat grooming or cake recipes. Those that do, fine, but not me and not most of the other blokes here I reckon.

    If you want to start whinging about declining membership and niche forums, honestly, it makes me laugh. 

    I'm an ex-Victory rider, so tell me about it. Need I say more? But I will. What on earth are you whingeing about? Stay with the brand - it is strong enough to be self sustaining and you already have a metric cruiser thread - you can a few more similar threads if you like, however -

     - if you dilute the drink too much, no one will come to the pub. 

    HD did this themselves with their two stroke trail bikes in the 1970s. Bad move. Don't make the same mistake with the forum now that Harley did with their bikes then.

     C'mon you guys don't be like that.

    How many active people at the AFL Grand Final? 18 players per side. There's 100,000 spectators cheering them on at the ground and millions more watching on the telly.

    A forums value is not measured on active members alone. Many more come to be informed and entertained as members and many times more again browse as lurkers.

    This is Australia's first, biggest and best HD enthusiast's forum. KC is just looking at taking us to the next level.

    Lets all relax a little and enjoy the journey.

     Agreed on all counts and most are grateful or else we wouldn't be here. I was only putting one post's stats re membership into context. Onwards and upwards...

    First up KC, you have possibly The Best forum going around at the moment. Brand specific but with the freedom of chatting about others. Dedicated primarily to Harley Davidson, primarily in Australia, which I expect is exactly what the members here want. I know I do. From my perspective, you've nailed it. I've done other forums in the past and have settled here for good reason. If I want to research the wifes' Vstar I go to one of the other myriad of (mostly international) forums, most of which are sterile, they don't get my sense of humor or sarcasm, they just can't take a joke. The people, the knowledge and the comraderie you've gathered together here on Your website is second to none.
    I know change is ongoing but Please mate, don't fuck it up.

    Another agreement. I don't post much but I check into this forum nearly every day unless I am away. I think you have a good thing going.

    i thought the big bust up a few years back was meant to be the end.  lol.  i bet most have returned after going off to the other one that started.

    KC has said that the forum you use now will still be available.  as long as he has a way of keeping the stoner wannabe trolls out,  really dont understand what all the fuss is about.

Sorry went to my head.) -This is only for training purposes. , and a Harley Davidson riders get to get to gether for info and meets and swaps, and a "how de do.." Miss some of the people who have been on line, as unbelievable, just to have meet through ere. 
    And no, get ya dirty mind outta there. Help, engine, and MC issues..good barsteads.
    This is a bloody good site for Australian Harley Davidson riders, to bitch, complain, explain, and say Ge"day, and if ya down, let someone know, even us bar heads.. We here for a very very short time, so say what you believe.

     Would be good to have a few slices stashed in your leather tool roll for survival rations, if your bike broke down.

    Might be a useful wheeel bearing lubricant also
