Many of these high post counters are also donors to local co-ops, in bikes/parts, cash, and mechanic time. They give back a lot behind the scenes.

As far as entitlement goes, I see just as much or more from new posters, who want to know the exact year, model, and value of their bike, and want to know NOW. And then proceed to argue on value once someone tells them their barn find bike is not as valuable as they think.

I am on a fiberglass RV forum, and the two most knowledgeable people on the brand of vintage trailer I own have vacated the list. I miss their knowledge a lot. Since no thread is complete without pictures, here's my 1977 Trillium 1300.
