Default Too many site choices out there?

Just curious why so few here on BCR of late.
Guess I just do not stay busy enough evenings to stay away from here in winter.
I am not riding near as much as I used to, I am getting older tho. But still like to check in here at least twice a week to, well drool mostly as I still ride decent running older sleds( yeah some are on the bench for now) for the most part. Such nice newer stuff out there, but hardly ever hear if any of them work. Maybe a gas shortage thing? They work so well you should still have plenty energy to push out a glowing So is the gen 4 a real decent 1st year release? Is the axys 17 better than 1st yr 16? Think Cats 17s HP is close to stated 167? Yammi's are kind of colorful too.. or Should I just buy a 600 as I only weigh about 11 pounds more than H.S. days, and if so what length track to HP ratio to still hang with the husky kids late models?
Didn't pay to sled porn this year
-yet.

I also have noticed less traffic on BCR. Perhaps its facebook and other social media? Don't know for certain , since I don't use any social media sites, but I hear other people talk about using "media" .

Closer to home the club I belong to has a nice website, with chat-box, message posting, etc, almost never used.

Social media again where some club ride or other event took place and several people didn't know it was happening.

Its a shame, this site used to be really busy.

Yea; facebook took over.
Bummer because I absolutely hate that platform. Good content gets buried so fast in the noise it's not even worth my time to post on there.

Some of that transition's demographics too. As the "classic" riders and forum members retire from the sport due to injury, family/personal life changes, finances, whatever... they're not being replaced by noobs because the noobs have grown up on social media.

Machine technology has changed a lot too. Modern stock machines really don't need anything - fuel, oil, and someone to pull the cord and hold the throttle. Gone are the days of the $50 mods that really improved the performance of the machine.
