As I was sitting here on this site I got to thinking. I have been on here not even a year, i think. And somehow I know tons of the regular posters.

I have a description in my head of tons of people like o this guy has tons of info. or this guy always posts funny stuff or this guy is my age.

If you would have told me I would know the personalities of a lot of these people when I first got on here I would have said you are crazy. I wonder what it is like for all you guys who have been on here for like years.

Guys like pred now have many people living in his head and he knows most of them. It is even better when you meet up with and ride with the people from DRN some of your mental desriptions from the boards get shattered real fast. Myself not many people realize that I am really a 14 year old kid that has never even seen a motorcycle :nener:

Meeting and better yet knowing a lot of the DRN crew is something that can't really be explained, sort of like crop circles, Jiffy Pop and belly button lint.

DRN is an unexplainable phenomenon - after my first dirtweek in 2003 I was in a state of disbelief - that a group of people from all over the country could get together for one common hobby and become a family.

I even married one of them...:)

Getting to know people online is great. Finally meeting them in person is weird. It's like meeting some great friends you've never met before. At first all you have is online stories to relate to. By the end of the get together, DW for example, you have some in person experiences.

So far, because of DRN I've been to IL, OK, WV, MA, NY, NJ, PA, NH, CT, VT, and of course RI. I've also ridden in Canada with Flyinkaw and Hucker. The topper was when my daughter found her husband through DRN.

The cool factor never seems to end. We have a community like no other in this site, and all it takes to be a part of it is to decide to participate. If someone shows up here with genuine intentions they will be welcomed to the group with open arms. Conversely, if someone shows up at our doorstep with the intention of causing trouble or doing harm you can expect us to defend our internet home.

BTW Tony, you forgot
Hot Damn!
and those fireside sammiches that oldguy made one year.
Oh yeah, getting to meet, really meet, Jeff Freddette, Malcom Smith, Kenny Bartram, etc.

The personalities of this place alone are enough to keep one coming back day after day.
I only wish that some day I will have obtained the knowledge of "the Wisest of DRN". As of now im just the quiet kid that tends to follow the more popular ones around and pipes up every now and then.
