    If all not heard, Spyderfest is done. After 10 years and good ones they pulled the plug. It will be missed. Other than the tornado's that seem to go with the event!

    Let's hope the Spyderfest people don't shoot themselves in the foot by going away from Spyderlovers.

    They do get a lot of action from the people here.

    What you are saying does have some merit "numbers wise." However, I look everyday as to who is on site. I am seeing a lot of long ago posters returning to look. I saw Dudley and Flamingobabe on line yesterday.

    Well, here's another opinion on that.Spyderlovers forum is for people to talk about Spyders. Social media (Facebook) is for people to talk about themselves.

    Retained the old mirrors with TricLed Signals
    General Altimax RT43 rear tire (at 17,000 miles) Ran for 36,500 miles
    Michelin Defender rear tire (at 53,500 miles)
    Vredestein Quatrac 5 front tires (at 70,500 miles, first new fronts!)
    Gear Brake Decelerometer Module

    OLD - 2012 RT Limited SE5 Pearl White - 01/31/13 - Traded in at 32,600 miles.

    Don't kid yourself. Social media is social media. Doesn't matter what the "group" is talking about. Whether someone refuses to use it or not is up to the "variety of reasons" that LifeLongRider said. If you are worried about security, you are just as vulnerable here (on THIS social media forum) as you are on Facebook. When was the last time you posted here that you would be "going on a ride" somewhere? And for how long? You just told the entire world (anyone who could come to this site and read your post) that your house will (or could) be empty for a safe break-in. Happens all the time. And guess what? I did professional Computer Security for over 25 years. I could (if I wanted to) get your personal IP address simply by coming to this site and running a free downloaded program from the Internet. Once I have your IP address, I'm only one or two other steps away from your Social Security number, your bank account numbers, and if you are really careless (which most home computer users are)...most of your passwords too. But don't worry about me. I'm one of the "good guys".

    I also hope that what ever comes along to replace SpyderFest that the powers to be, realize that a lot of us DO NOT believe nor do we use SOCIAL MEDIA, and I hope they realize the importance of Spyderlovers and use it as well to convey information. We need it.

    I was going to add too that when Spyderfest got split up between Springfield and Bolivar, people didn’t like being split up and miles in between locations. Now they also have Joplin. Anyway, what ever comes in the future. I hope it will be as good and fun as Spyderfest has been for the 6 years we got to go.

    I am looking at the Spyders in the Ozark even now though. We will see. I am contemplating retirement now so will see. Money may be a big issue.
