    No doubt.

    I check in here everyday but I'm afraid there are only a few of us that do.

    We need to propagate/assimilate!

    ...and maybe we need a spell check too?

      Most of Hawk Nation is still enamored with the cumbersome email list. :/

        I post every so often, more of a lurker i guess. I do not understand why people are so in love with the old school list. Forums are much much easier to read and follow. I will be posting more when I begin to modify my mostly stock '89 Hawk. But since I recently bought a house, most of my money is getting socked into it. I am just glad that my hawk is so dependeble, it doesn;t have to cost too much money.

          I'm constantly posting to the email list, simply because that's where the activity is. Have to say, though, I like the forum best.

            hmmm.... I'm not a lister, but perhaps one of you guys can steer some of those guys this way.
            It's scary how slow I am!

              I check in daily, but there just isn't much going on Hawkwise. Anyone doing any other interesting projects? Personally, I'm working on making an XR600 into a street bike. Not really a motard, more like a Honda version of an SR500. So far it's got a F2 front end and ZX7 rear shock, which get the ride height to a managable level. GS500e wheels allow the use some 17" tires. Now if I can score some flattracker body parts I should be rollin!

                  yes, I want all project pics..
                  I guess i could start posting mine..I got my new subframe on..New forks..I got a new ignition switchy thingy in the throttle barrel in the mail as well. New grips for the new clipons are hanging out waiting for the throttle barrel..
                  I dont know.
                  Yes, steer some listers this way. I think as the forums continue to grow there will be more activity. we have like 50 think three members are actually spam bots that didnt fully complete their registration.
                  Still, I check the forums everyday I just dont always have something to say, im not hard core..And honestly..I couldnt ride from the broken shoulder so I tried to distance myself a tad lately so I dont go insane. Physical therapy has started and i can ride again soon..but the weather looks snowy..ick!

                    Yeah, snow's on the way soon. I tend to ramp up progress on the projects once I can't ride. I'll borrow a digicam and get some pics this weekend.(Hopefully)

                      Snow? What's snow? Oh you must mean like...that stuff that happens way up in the mountanis! I think I've seen it once...yep. I'm more used to, you know...sunshine, living in cali and all
                      I know I dreamed you,
                      A sin and a lie.
                      I have my freedom,
                      But I don't have much time.
                      Faith has been broken,
                      Tears must be cried.
                      Let's do some living,
                      After we die.

                        If we didn't get snow, then all the freakish types that hang around after the big HD rally might decide it's where they'd like to permanently pitch a tent.

                        It also keeps my mother in law at a safe distance. Hoo Hoo, tell 'em, Fred.

                          Alrighty, I borrowed a camera and got a shot of the XR project. I haven't cleaned anything up yet (least of all my shop). I'll clean and repaint stuff after I make it work.

                          Hopefully the pic works

                            slow XR600 project

                            Here's the latest shot of the XR project:

                            It should be a fun around town bomber.
