Calling all motorcycle riders to the Oregon Riders internet forum.

If you’re unfamiliar with an internet forum, or message board – its a bulletin board system in the form of a discussion site.  From a technology viewpoint, forums or “boards” are web applications managing user-generated content.  They allow anonymous visitors to view the contents, but registering (an easy less than 5-minute process) allows users to submit topics for discussion (known as threads) and communicate with each other using publicly visible messages (referred to as posts) or private messaging.

In an effort to reach out to a broader set of riders across the state, Don Mason (Coordinator, Hub City ABATE Chapter) has created a new concept called the Oregon Riders forum.  He’s running this site simply for his interests in motorcycling and it’s separate from ABATE.  Thanks Don for your support and a quick shout-out to “Windy Joe” for illuminating the site.

This forum was created to do several things:

  1. To give riders in Oregon a single place to get information and share their love of riding and the bike lifestyle.
  2. To provide a place for real-time discussion and collaboration for MRO’s and other groups throughout the state.
  3. To provide a place for MRO’s and other riding groups to announce and find what is going on for riders in the Northwest.

This forum is for ALL riders and is not affiliated with, influenced by, or run by, any specific organization.

The intent is to build and hopefully have a thriving forum… a “hangout” if you will for Oregon riders who are involved, talking to each other, and getting together for rides, events and legislative issues.  There are a lot of riders in Oregon and it would be cool to see large numbers of people “virtually” gathering.

Check it out, register and join the discussion.  See you on the “boards.”
