    Cannot find my posts in P&R

    Does anyone know why it is that I cannot retrieve any of my old posts in P&R?

    Those I've posted in all other sub-forums are there but none from P&R.

    That is a pity as it was a pretty bike, but I would imagine like chrome, nickel plating would add a bit of weight as well to the bike.
