    Many of the "OG's" have been put off by the newer STR member demographic as not being 'core' enough for them.:lol:

    That's not entirely wrong. I know many stopped posting rides on STR and are opting to ride with a closer niche group. No matter how much they explain the ride and emphasize that a ride is not a newbie friendly, the Fred on the Walmart special always shows up and is in way over his head.
    I don't know if it's just a generation gap or something but I know many of the OG's also feel the tone of this site has changed for the worse. IMO I think for the most part even with the new members and only having one moderator this sight has done a good job of self moderating itself.

    I actually like how STR is now. It's not as clicky as it was before.

    "FROADER" is short for Off-Roader. I have been into wheeling trucks, bikes, etc. since I was little. It was a family affair. I started to call it froadin' and it stuck. [​IMG]

    My last rig. Notice the license plate.

    Thread revival.

    From Velominati's Lexicon:

    Sur La Plaque // French for “Put that thing in the big ring, ****tard.”

    (Literally, to move sur la plaque means to move onto the plate, or the BIG RING.)

    When I started on this forum, I only had the BMX, so I was always in the big ring.
