    Greetings and solicitations!!!

    It's the SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY (count 'em: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,7)of the NT-Owners Forum! And it's nearly Christmas, to boot!

    !I don't know about you, but this Forum has been one of the great gifts of my recent years. Thanks to Mother Honda for giving us the opportunity to have such a great bike to coalesce around -- even if they only imported it for two years. I've had mine for about 7 years, 9 months (2,832 days if I figure right), and have averaged 44 miles a day on it since I bought it.

    By the time I bought my NT, Motorcycle Larry had started the original NT-Owners Forum, but before long he had to give it up due to health issues that led to his death. That's when Mellow stepped in and adopted us, adding us to his responsibilities as the Moderator of the ST-Owners Forum. And in the seven years since this Forum started, I've managed to make over 12,700 posts, averaging only ten a day.

    It's hard for me to say which has given me the most joy -- the miles or the relationships I've formed through this Forum. Both have been great! We've got 1,116 members from around the world. 177 of those have been active in the last 30 days. The wealth of friendship and knowledge we've got has been shared in over 107,000 posts in over 7,500 threads.

    And now here it comes: "The Sermon on the Amount" (I am a retired preacher, after all). Mellow covers the cost of hosting the Forum. He'd never ask for your contributions, but I will! We've got 28 site-supporters right now, and I want to challenge some more of you to join me in making at least a small contribution to cover the costs of this Forum. Just "click" on the Donate button at the top of the page. You can give via PayPal and it's Paynless. I'm giving $20 -- join me!

    Great sermon Phil - well short anyway. But to the point. Most of us know nothing about how much it costs to run this fourm. But whatever it costs we users should pay for. Since I have never seen an audited copy of Joe's accounting books, or even heard him complain, I assumed that he was doing OK. I agree that he should be doing better than OK because this forum in so good. So it is up to us to support the forum. Besides it's easy. Just do it.

    If he gets there, I'll have a sticker made for him. Since the bike (not the rider) earns the sticker, I'll probably get two made on the off chance that the guy who bought RUSTINPEACE's bike won't take long if he rides a lot. I'm beginning to think that I may never need that 200K sticker for myself, but who knows....

    Just made a donation of US$20, ($27.35 Australian, that exchange rate at PayPal is starting to hurt)

    Not the first time I have made a donation and probably won't be my last.
