Powerslide (Now MotoGp) Forum Shout Out To Old Members

Back when this was Powerslide - there was a gradual exit of a lot of good members, leading some to predict it's death, the rumors of which, were greatly exaggerated. While it is true there are few in-person meet-ups - the forum is nonetheless, thriving and new members are connecting. My guess is that a lot of folks still drop by and browse but are hesitant to interact. So I put it out there: if you're one of those - take a minute to say hello and if you have contact info for any members of the old Powerslide gang PM them to me (rather than posting them here where they can be picked up by spam spiders). It'd be great to hear from anyone from the old crew. If nothing else - it's good just to remember the gang.

Good call Kesh! I came after a long time to have a quick look and found your "shout out", so let's honor this coincidence.


The forum has changed, but a few known voices are still here, like good old Michaelm and Birdman, Clarkjw, P4p1, and others. Contents are rich as usual, but I was surprised that topics like Jorge Martin (what a rookie! Have Ducati found their Marquez?), or Dovi's Aprilia test in Jerez (have Aprilia found their Pedrosa?) or Zarco's excellent results (only rider to be on the podium in both the first two races) seem to have been overlooked. It is of course possible that I just missed them!

I'll check in again after this GP (yes, Marquez is back, and he's going to be immediately fast!).

Happy weekend to everybody!

Glad to hear from you. We still have Birdman who is a bike racing savant imo, which you were also and I miss your takes.
