I asked a question in the Newbie section, but got no reply. Thought that was a bit strange, as it was a straight forward question. Then I realised that despite several of the Newbies getting well over a hundred views, they don't get a single reply or welcome to the forum. We all share superordinate goals, biking in S E Asia. Is this the type of unfriendly forum that you wish to belong too. Surely the aim of forums is the sharing of information and experiences ?
