Neither is this place, apart from the Social section, which we're not in :)


That's why if it's a private matter for UKBEG members only, I use the social page. All the bike stuff goes in relevant sections, personal stuff social. No such privilege on Facebook.

Never used Faceache or do I care to. UKBEG is just fine and dandy for me.... Can't be doing with all the other rubbish.

Loathe as I am to say anything further on this (I am deeply disappointed at the "them and us sentiment") - That up there ^^^^^^ simply is not a universal truth. Exactly the same thing can be said about this (and most other) public facing forum websites :roll:

Sorry Jazzy, 03 is correct. My own FB is reasonably private, but I have done the FB security tutorial. Mine could be less private, as many are... or more private by blocking tagging, blocking access to albums for friends etc etc. But I am happy the way it is while I'm not a crime-lord or International man of mystery.

I have several hobbies/interests (possibly too many) FB has been huge for my acquisition of knowledge. I don't have much time for library visits, even less time for courses (wasted youth, shitty job) so I'll stick with FB while it suits needs. I like it here for Buell stuff better though :D ......

Good post for rides and meet ups Del, thanks! I will be watching closely and if time/weather permits I'll be 'In Like Flynn' :yup:

I must add that my old Ma was scared of FB for many years. She kept saying that she did not want people knowing what she was doing. I explained the facts, painstakingly... She signed up, with help, and now loves being able to see and chat to her sibling, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews etc in 3 countries and a dozen cities she cannot easily visit anymore at 80. I've even signed her up on a few garden pages which are great because the tinternet is a bit boggling, FB is easier for her.

Rant over :roll:

I'm pretty sure I didn't slag Facebook off, my wife is on it all the time, I'm just a bit more selective about where I want to post stuff. You wouldn't think it but I am quite a private person & UKBEG, youtube. Ted Talks & some other scientific sites, suit me fine.
That reminds me I should donate to Forum funds while I have a bit of spare cash.
As far as rides go in your end of the woods Delw you can count me in, it's an easy run up to your's from mine. I like the North Yorks Moors myself.

These aren't formal events, just suggestions of places to go and date's on which to do it. I know these aren't far enough north for some and too far north for others but give an excuse to get out and ride.
