A New Way to Search the BFN - 2 or 3 or More Characters

A New Way to Search the BFN - 2 or 3 or More Characters

As many of you know, you can't search the BFN using 1, 2 or 3 characters with the built-in search engine. So here is a way it can be done. It works great.

For example, if you wanted to search for "ocp"

Go to Google. Type in:

site:bikeforums.net ocp

or for "50"

site:bikeforums.net 50

This should be stickied or in the FAQ because I can never remember (this is the 50+ forum, isn't it?) the correct form to use that type search.

That's fine with me. Why don't you contact a mod?
