This may seem a strange suggestion coming from a guy and not a girl however, given a couple of posts I have read lately, iehttp://cruiser.mototribe.com/discuss/crash , http://cruiser.mototribe.com/discuss/worst-ride-2013 , amongst others, I thought it worth proposing. Has CCC ever considered getting a pool of $$ together so that when members are badly [not minor scrapes or bruises] injured in accidents [not their bikes either as in http://cruiser.mototribe.com/discuss/hit-and-run-0 ] the forum could send them a token get well card or flowers [even a can of beer to some of the guys] to their hospital bed etc? If CC could be convinced, CCC members may be able to forgo their "free" gifts with the benefit being redirected to this activity. I'd certainly put in a few $$$ via say paypal or give up the "free" gifts if I knew the $$ were to be used exclusively for this purpose.
Just an idea. I raise it via message with UWE who suggested posting here.
