While I have said most of this stuff before, I'll go again.
I like the idea of names. It makes it personal and in mind, you are more responsible for what you say. People hide behind fake user names.
The point of this group - and most others - is to support people who want to know more about Ariels. The info isn't perfect, but it is genuine. It isn't a place to bring your issues or attitude - unless they are mechanical and good.
We just block posts that look like being a problem, and eventually users who persist in adding them. This benefits the majority of members who just want to know about Ariels.
Ebay is a public arena - If you write something there, people are going to read it, and if it is bagging something they value, friendly or not, they may be somewhat pissed. That isn't rocket science.
Want to move on and talk about Ariels or have the last word?

Could not agree more , and as for the poor club comment that is my own personal view /experience of the local branch ,I witnessed the reaction of this branch when a new member travelled some miles to attend the meeting , when he said what he was restoring a colt two of this branch walked off , their loss as hes a great person who will not be renewing his membership , unfortunately im not alone with this view and genuinely believe that by the end of this year this branch (meeting) may disappear which is a real shame with its location taken into consideration ,
the clubs reaction to this comment has some what boar this out as maybe a wider problem , this is something I have not experienced in any other clubs inc the panther club which I am a member , now I have said my piece what about Ariel’s would you like to talk about (I have a few )

Is this the same ultra-friendly Panther Owners club that told my mate Gavin that his 2-stroke panther ( if I remember rightly) wasn't a "real" panther and he shouldn't join ?? Needless to say, he didn't, but I can remember his summing up of the whole affair (made at a later date) :D

Mind you, I got pretty much the same on my 50 year old russian outfit with the VMCC. Apparantly, it's not a proper old bike :D

Is it the same cranky old geezers in every old bike club, I wonder ??

If we have a "wider" problem then why join our forum ?

HI
I have visited the Birmingham branch on a couple of occasions, and on my bike and a very warm welcome was received. I have met up with some of the lads at Ariel rallies since then, and it's always good fun to meet them.
Why not join the club, come on your bike and become one of the friendly faces for new members to meet.

Don't ask what the club can do for you but what you can do for your club.
