Most of you spend more time on here than I do. (That's scary) :) So I am pretty much leaving it up to the rest of you to think of someone who is deserving of a free-bee. Be it a contest or whatever...The only thing I'd like to see is that it goes to someone who genuinely gives a sh-- about others on the boards and isn't just your average wanker. :) I even thought about posting the Free Subscription in the general forum and ask members to come up with a short paragraph on why they deserve/ need the free upgrade. This would atleast be a way to get an idea of how a person conducts themselves. ie. The guy who types,"I wont the subsrition cuz I a good rider" wouldn't cut it in my book. :) Anyways, I'll let the rest of you all collaborate and decide who gets it. :thumb:
Ya know, I kinda like the begging by writing a paragraph senario. :p I spend a fair ( remember I have halfheimers ) amount of time wondering why someone would spend any amount of time on the site and NOT see the value in becoming a subscriber. Maybe we could learn something from the reasons expressed.
I nominate old "woodsy". This guy is 48 yeas old, and has been riding non-stop since he was 6. I have never met anyone with more pure enthusiasm for the sport, or someone who completely exemplifies the comradery that is a big part of it as old woodsy does.
Woodsy is known over on the MTR forum for his colorful and detailed ride reports. This guy rides day and night (seriously, under the moonlight at 2am), in the heat and in the snow, on the ice, and even wheeling over the Mackinaw Bridge crossing the straights of Lake Michigan. This guy sleeps out on the trail, under trailers, in sleeping bags, in the rain.... and still rides his ass off the next day. He put in 6,000 miles on his dual-sport KX-500 last year!
He's also pretty active in the "What Bike Do I Get..." forum, where he spends over 1/3 of his time. He's always happy to share his wealth of old-school knowledge, insight, along with some pretty funny bench stories if you have the time.
