gaim ftw (for an aim client) although its an ugly ass client but it goes well with an ugly and powerless protocol.
MSN ftw.

My AIM is on my profile. I had Trillian but you lose some functions so I ditched it. Hit me up sometime if you want.

if you want to come play on irc there are a number of ways to do it.

1. the easiest and most disappointing option involves going to this efnet portal and logging into #bikeforums:

http://chat.efnet.org/

2. a better way involves downloading an irc client that works in your browser. for example, chatzilla works in firefox:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/16

3. you can also try out a full blown irc client like mirc or some alternative:

http://www.mirc.com/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_IRC_clients

4. or you can fire up the irc option on trillian or gaim.

in any case, you're going to have to join an efnet server and then join the channel #bikeforums.

and all the commands are very simple. just set yourself up with arbitrary user info for the startup, then /nick whatever
/server irc.efnet.net
/j #bikeforums

easy as pie made by someone else.
