    Happy 50th!


    Did anyone happen to notice that we now have FIFTY members at NESR? Wow, that was fast!

    I'd say this has grown at a faster than expected pace, with much more to come. Well, people know a good thing when they see it, huh?

    Happy 50th!

    Ya, now if I could ever get out and fucking RIDE! Jeeze, I can't remember the last GOOD ride I went on (I mean, full day, hammering...etc...). I'm gonna take those shitty tires off this weekend and put the 207's back on...so at least that'll help (I haven't been riding much lately because those tires make the TL pretty irritating to ride).

    I think the more important thing here, is did Craigs R1 ever hit 100k miles? He swore he wasn't getting rid of that bike until then

    So, what was the first thread ever here? Jay's first thread was on 6/3/01 and was about another member and Josh's 6/6/01.

    So, who started it all?

    A lot of the older posts got pruned over the years to keep the database size down. The very first post is probably long gone.

    It's definitely fun reading back to the first days of the forum.

    Did you guys break off from SRNE?

    Quigs bailed for a while just when NESR started picking up steam, but used to pop in from time to time before rejoining these last few years. In fact, Josh bailed for a while too...

    NESR didn't 'break off' from SRNE. NESR happened 'cuz people got sick of too many rules and intolerance of others' riding styles. That's basically what it boiled down to...

    That's actually how Josh & I met: a bunch of people over there were giving him shit about some wheelies, I got his back and told him I'd ride with him any ol' day. He seemed like my type of peeps. We rode, became great friends, partied and rode. We talked about doing something like this for a while, but it never really got going. Then he emails me one day and says to check out the new site. His boy Quigs regi'd the domain and they worked out the early forum, I printed out A BUNCH of shit to pimp it out, and it was born...

    In fact, people used to make fun of us because of the similarity of the abbreviations 'SRNE' & NESR'. I couldn't be more serous when I said people didn't give NESR much of a chance...

    Wasn't that the wheelie he pulled leaving the NH toles on 93..you know, the day we left the track and PGrider collected all the tole money from the riders ahead of time...and pulled into the exact change only booth and stuffed about 30 single ones in there and off we went? That was a fun day

    I don't know, I wasn't on the SRNE ride that he was catching shit for. But I don't think that's the one. There was actually a few people gettin' whacky and for some reason they singled Josh out...
