I'm looking at the General Discussion Forum and fully 1/3 of the first page is [NSR]. Isn't this getting a little out of hand? Is it so Wintery now that there is too little to talk about that is scooter related?

Okay, calm down everyone. Back away from the pitchforks and torches.

We go through this every winter. Lots of NSR, not much scooter content. Or perhaps the same amount of NSR as always, and less scooter content to dilute it. Either way, an NSR-only area is not in the works, simply because I don't believe that segregating the content will solve any problems.

Sorry...

It means "NON SCOOTER RELATED". Yes this has been debated at considerable length before. Whilst I don't necessarily agree with it, I have to accept it although it is quite often crap!

I think we should have a special forum for all the post asking for a NSR forum. This would be a good spot for the NSR lovers/haters to wage their eternal war.

Hey, the way I see all the NSR threads is that it gives us all an opportunity to get to know one another. After reading a lot, you get to know who you like, respect or think are funny ... and those you don't!

That's important info in any forum ... so it's not all useless! For instance, some people didn't know that NSR meant "Not Scooter Related" ... so they actually learned something!

Why not when posting a , n.s.r post, maybe add on a scooter related photo as im sure there are a fair few not posted on the threads, like lets see you on your scooter, etc.. 8) ..so all you, ( n.s.r) threaders get snapping.. Laughing emoticon

As always, I have many scooter pics eagerly awaiting an NSR thread
(Danger, danger... Shield your eyes, RitchJ!)

This one's a "2002 PIAGGIO PX 180 TAFFSPEED VESPA STREET RACER" from the UK eBay

Odd ... it looks a LOT older than 2002 and why does the speedo say "Lambretta"?

A taste of the alternative is about all it takes to see this place for the hugely kinder place that it is. The alternative has all the fruits and nuts....

Then surely by virtue of the fact that there's a scooter related photo attached the thread would not be classed as NSR, would that keep you happey PDX???

Also I always preface my daily jokes with NSR, however if say one day I was sat on my scooter and got told a joke that I was going to share with you later that day would that then become a SR topic.

Maybe we should have a poll, age related of course!!

Photos a plenty
Hey, so it means Not Scooter Related, sounds
better then the other. I know in the past I have
posted photos not related but they were fine photos to see.
These photos are from my last rally, Endless Summer.
