He use to be a prolific poster on here, getting upwards of 10000+ posts I think. Anyway he seemed nice and helpful.
Whatever became of him? A quick search shows he hasn't posted in some time.

Oh I didn't know he actually got banned. So was he banned for basically pushing a product over and over. I remember him talking about both those bikes and the Giant Sedona as well.

There is a thread in the user's forum showing all banned posters in chronological order.

$5 says he's still her under a new name.

He got banned last year. Here is the announcement- http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...1#post15011512.

As any long term/prolific member tends to attract both fans and detractors, we really don't like to talk about them after they have been banned, as there might be some squabbling between sides.
