As you can see, this board is not finalized yet but we appreciate the help in testing and suggesting features.  Anything you don't like or want to see added can be posted in the suggestions.
Also note that things will be changing, appearing and disappearing and we try and discard various modifications so keep things on a try and see basis for awhile.
The main goals from a board standpoint will be to give our members the best possible user experience no matter what device they are using from a big multi monitor desktop setup down to a phone. 
For your first few posts, you will be asked to go through some verification to prove you aren't a spambot and to discourage human spammers.


There are several themes available to change the way the forum looks on your device.  You can change themes by going to your Profile-> Forum Profile ->Look and Layout.  The top line that says Current Theme has a link beside it that says change.  Click on that and you will get a list of themes we have tried so far.


So explore away, we hope to be moved to the permanent domain soon and will start finalizing features, themes, etc.

Welcome aboard to all the new members this week, were up to 13 as of tonight! That's a start for something we're really not even advertising for members yet! The forum is looking really good and I think JollyRoger and nickB are doing a great job of refining all the little quirks...

Hello All!

New to the site and great to find a forum for Kansas back country riding.  It didn't take much searching to find your site.  Overall it's quite nice and very easy to use.  I like the clean look and performance seems fast. 

I was looking around to see who would be riding this weekend and ran across the 2-11 SE Ride ride (wonder if there is a way to enter a text string with an embedded URL to make it look cleaner?).  It would be a early morning to make it there from Olathe but will certainly try to make a future ride.

Thanks for setting this forum up and look forward to being a part of it!
Cheers!
