Totally its Facebook, nobody wants to wait anymore. TDR forum has gone the same, vmax forum too. Its all facebook.

We need to try and start  on facebook. The vmax and TDR face book forums are running well.

Had a look, it's a page as opposed to a group so I don't think us peasants can post anything?

Sad to see but it does seem that this has run it's course. I don't do this stuff on my phone, in fact I hardly ever use it. I was thinking it was just because it was the winter that no one was on here, my bike is hibernating and will be till April 2020 so I might look in here when the summer rolls round. Take care folks and hopefully see you out there!

I check here nearly every day too. It’s a shame, but have also just sent a request to the FB group.

I think part of the problem is that the forum is far reaching to all Yamahas. I tend to join model specific forums, but even those get more traffic via FB these days. I guess others will do the same.

Or hopefully a bit sooner weather permitting.

Sorry not much to report, weather has been absolutely shite in the West Country, and every time I see somebody on 2 wheels I think 'poor b*stard' from the heated seats of the Crossfire.

Same. Did 5 years on 2 wheels full time because I could either afford a car or a bike but wanted a bike. Teaches you a lot. Mainly that riding all year is shite.

I've had a look at the facebook sites, Can't say I'm over impressed by them, posts tend to be 'look where I've been' photos and no obvious threads to follow about bike maintenance etc. I'll stick with the forum thanks even if the activity has died down.

Indeed - that’s what the Tiger 1200 forum tries to achieve. They just want the forum to serve as a valuable resource for people, and then the FB page to be more of a social “look where I went today” community.

Sorry haven't commented on this earlier. I've been looking at trying to get a good way of automating posts from here to Facebook, currently I haven't really found a nice way of doing it without spamming everyone. There's a new version launching int he next few weeks which should make this possible.

You're right it's Facebook, our traffic significantly dropped once shortly after they launched their groups functionality. Compared to a forum it's pretty useless in regards to searching and usability etc. However it's there immediately in your hand where most people are checking all the time.

We'll have an app coming out soon with alerting functionality, hopefully it's going to help!
