In using the forum, I find that most people simply want help with their motorcycle repair issues. Under the current system they are left to choose one of 3 forums to post within. Since the various BMW models covered by "Airhead" are so similar it doesn't make sense to segregate by model. Maybe more definitive categories would be helpful.... like "Parts", "Engine", "Gearbox and Drive", "Electrical", "Wheels and Brakes", etc ??
This would definitely help interested parties do "Searches".
In the good old days, back when the email based AirList was sponsored and managed by the ABC, moderators would cull like messages and create a technical article based on the topic that was then migrated to the technical area of the ABC web site. Rather than clutter up the technical topic of the forums up with many different subtopics, we'll pursue the same strategy here.
One change we are contemplating is merge the "My Airhead Needs Help" topic into the general technical discussion area, as posts there are often better addressed by those who frequent the technical discussions.
