Chaps / All,

Being new to Stromming I have to say I find this site very helpful and the contributions excellent and worthwhile - thanks to all so far for the generous help!

My question is who actually administers and moderates the site? It's extremely well done and I'm curious as to the 'behind the scenes' activity here. Is it Suzuki sponsored in some way?

Just curious but thanks to whoever is making the effort anyway!

Thanks very much !

Fat Rat owns the site himself and it is not sponsored or interfered with in any way, we are mostly financed by member contributions.

Morning,

The site is run by me and some moderately trained Chimps  :smirk: Suzuki did show some interest when they were launching the daft pointy DL1000 in 2014 and we know that we are being watched from Japan.

Dear Mr Rat and assorted Chimps,

Will send on bananas and what other assorted inducements are required to keep you going.

Well done again and thanks! Mr Rat - I hope to be visiting Newcastle Emlyn some time this year (on bike of course) so will advise if heading by and maybe grab a beer a beer or coffee with thee.

Dave.

So just get out and do it.

Just had an issue with connecting to the forum myself. Neither my phone or laptop would connect, just get a message saying the site can't be found.  :icon_exclaim:

Working now though, obviously!

Can you give me an idea of the times you were experiencing the issues (and are they now resolved)?  :ty:
