BF members you miss.

After being gone for a while, I've decided to make a return and i'm sad to see a few of the regulars from a while back are gone. Pretty much everybody from the BMX forum is gone, and so is Vega and East Hill.

Whos posts do you miss seeing?

Snowy is doing well btw.

The only three I can remember are substructure, King Termite and Easthill (I joined in the later part of '08 I think). I enjoyed their posts, but miss them? Not really. There are so many people that post here that the void of anyone who stops posting is filled by someone else. Even Pcad is expendable.

couch_incident.

I mean, we have Couch, but he is no couch_incident. I remember when couch_incident and I were busted in Turkey. It was cool until they told us that we couldn't have baklava in prison. They're probably not too happy with us for leaving and less happy we stole their baklava.

Couch, in contrast, wears fleece pajamas.

Only people who play in P & R understand - but I really miss Old Scratch!

East Hill... not so much... she really really didn't like me!

We've had a huge turnover since Joe sold the forum, including Joe and Shadiyah. But others I miss are KrisPisofferson, Lord Opie, and all of the Oregon group including Perigrin and 55RAD. I see 55RAD now and then at event rides. The whole LA group are gone now too, Brandi, JChen and all the others. Must be time for me to take the door too. Cycle Magic and MsVicki are both long gone. MsVicki took several of her characters with her, most notable of which was the Underwear Nazi.

Nope, your time has not come yet, or at least I for one hope so. I still keep up with some of the old gang on FB and other forums.

KrisP is still around - he's playing in P & R...

Funny I came in with the whole LA Group (we started over at OLN.com)... with the exception of Tprevost, I think I am the only one left.
