I appreciate that Blue. Really I do. We've knocked heads before, buit this was a nice gesture and it means something to me.

Heck I didn't even realize it myself 'til you said something.
Thought I'd use #10,001 to say thanks to you and the rest of the members that inhabit this little corner of the web and tolerate my grumblings.

Take shelter, because there's more to come.

Thanks You'll reach it. Bear in mind that it took nearly three years to get to this point.
Just so folks know I'm not #1 all time here (Maelstrom has me beat by quite a few)

I am so new here that I feel out of place commenting. However, I plan on staying awhile and would like to pre-thank Raiyn for future help. I have read many past posts and always seem to take something from his opinions and others as well.

Don't feel out of place. You're certainly welcome for any past and future help that I may provide

Imagine how many I've ticked off too

You're certainly welcome for anything you've taken from my posts that has helped you or given some perspective on things.

Thanks for the compliments I like most of the folks here, (believe it or not) it's why I keep coming back. If it weren't for the other members there wouldn't be any reason for me to be here, much less for Bike Forums to exist.

Hey, you give out so much helpfull information to everyone. Even me...after all of the...*cough*....'incodents' we've been through. Heck you even got me banned for a week!

But I now understand how much effort you put into these forums, including self moderation. Some people might think of you as a bit grumpy at times, when u complain bout spelling mstakes...but i dont think you get the credit you deserve. I mean i've caught you up at 4am in the morning posting here! How dedicated is that!

10,000 posts was a good oportunity to let everyone know how much effort you've put into these forums...to be honest i dont know what we would do with out you!

I've always been a night owl and I don't really need a ton of sleep.
(Though I will admit to the occasional cat nap when I get home from work)


edit: I usually try to get off by 3, but if it's been a busy day here I'll stay longer, especially if the topics are interesting

Current Standings:

Maelstrom, 11791
Koffee Brown, 10279
Raiyn, 10015
Khuon, 9025
Chris L, 8612
Then ME, 7052.

The scary part is that the top four all joined in 2002, Chris and I joined in 2000. That's a HUGE daily average for the top four!!!!!!

Way to go!
