Forum rules
Britbike Forum is a website for Vintage British Motorcycle Enthusiasts.
We are a community of people who own or have owned or work on or simply are enthusiastic about British motorcycles. If you have any interest learning or teaching about British motorcycles, this is the place for you.

BritBike forum was founded with the idea that a lightly moderated site would allow its members to enjoy talking intelligent discussions without the free-for-all anarchy of an un-moderated site. On BritBike forum all active members have a voice; however, within most community forums there are rules which create a foundation for acceptable behavior. Failure to adhere to these limitations can result in a loss of posting privileges.

Registration to our forum is free. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below.

Considering the real-time nature of the discussion forums, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. All messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of BritBike forum or any entity associated with BritBike forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify us immediately.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, disrespectful or otherwise violative of any laws. You agree that the administrative staff of BritBike forum reserves the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread, private message, forum, social group, or any other aspect of the site for any reason we see fit. You agree that the administrative staff has the right disable, ban, delete, or modify user accounts for any reason.
