Times flies it feels right now.
In August 1996 I started BSA Pitstop and BSA Bulletin Board. the year after we introduced a board for all British brands and then in 1998 when the BritBike.com domain was created and the new name BritBike Forum for all bulletin boards was a fact.
Since then we have had more than a million posts..

As I said times flies.. maybe we should close it now while it's still popular.. nah i'm just kiddin..

We probably should celebrate this however it's late here so i'll just hit the sack..
Cheers

I would say that this BritBike Forum is one of the main things that has kept the British bikes as popular as they are. Always someone to help with problems, part sources and advice. Many friendships have been formed across this forum. HAPPY 15TH ANNIVERSARY to the BritBike forum and thanks Morgan for having the foresight to start such an endeavour. Allan

I may need deep to dig up a few images from the old BSA Pitstop. Because i have replaced so many confusers over the 15 years it may be hard to find any but here are a few.

I'd be sore pressed to count the number of times I've gotten help off the boards. To dovetail what Allan said, I'd go so far as to say the boards have kept many Brit bikes on the road.

I'd like to say thanks to everyone involved and keep up the good work!

It was the BSA board that got me back into bikes after years away. Finding that advice and parts sources were available got me going again.

Now, I am the proud owner of a 53 M20 and 54 Golden Flash along with a 59 Super Rocket kit. This is along with several old cars. Its a hobby gone mad and I wouldn't have it any other way.

The M20 came through this site. The owner was looking for a good home for it about 10 years ago, and its been with me since.

Thanks Morgan!!

Great job!
Thanks to Morgan and all the others who make this site an indispensable resource. (And fun too!)
Without the help and advice I've received here my BSA would've been tossed off a cliff by now.

Happy Birthday, BRITBIKE! beerchug

Congrats to you, Morgan, and to the forum, for being one of the best resources anyone could find on the 'net.

Happy to be here, and good to have met several of you folks out there at the races and rallies.

no way I'd have ever gotten my first BSA running if i hadn't found this board. Made a number of friends and learned a whole lot since then. Thanks Morgan for continuing to host a place for this community to meet. Congrats on 15 years!

Well done Morgan! and a big thank you for making the world a lot smaller place, that's a good thing. I've learned a lot, not only about Brit bikes, but about cultures too (for example why it's acceptable to say "Jap" in the UK but not PC the US).

I've also seen some fantastic signatures from contributors, such s "Time flies ike the wind, fruit flies like bananas", "Cruising on 2 wheels along the information superhighway" and the brilliant "If it an't broke, fix it till it is".
Some or all of which I've stolen from time t time, thank you whoever you are!

Thank you again.
