Exactly my point. I was an MOA member once, i liked the magazine but the membership lacked a lot of what I was looking for. I care less about ABS, IBR, Linked brakes, headlight modulators, Zumo, Touratech and spending 30k on the bike and name brand gear.
With Advrider I had likeminded folks who could motivate, educate, and accomplish so much without having much money and an MD or JD behind thier name. They rode what they could afford, and if it was nice, they didnt brag about it. There where asshats, heck I was one, but they were generally dealt with. My biggest complaint is somtimes the punishment does not fit the crime. Even here I PMed the main mod from adv...and got nary a response.
