What would fly, NALOC?
« on: May 12, 2018, 23:44 »
Hello forum,
As it stands, the torch of NALOC leadership has fallen into my lap, and I do enjoy the fact that I was the last to put my finger to my nose and now stand proud of the rest as someone motivated enough to enable the resurgence of the club.

We have sufficient internet presence, we have the faithful here on the forum, and we live in the shadow of ILOC which have recently added to their rally and fellowship accomplishments. Yep, they got a feature on UK TV. Kudos to their ability to find that in, take advantage and make it happen.

So my ask to you is simple. What are you looking for? Is it tshirts, stickers and patches? Is it videos of our bikes and local rides? Tool and tech sharing via garage nights? Do you want a news letter or La Vera Vista magazine or blog?

Let me know what you think, North America, and I will get started. I am full of enthusiasm for this brand but need your help making a movement come to life.

Let's do this,
Bob

Such a large continent makes a national rally difficult in the short term. Perhaps the merchandising will work ....... no end of ideas for that field.

How about a separate forum or blog to share our adventures. With that we could work our way up to marketing the brand by promoting us at vintage meets etc.

I'm in!

I enjoy a good nose-picking session too  ;D

Europe is pretty large too.
From Spain to Breganze is 1850km and from Scotland to Breganze is 2300km.

But maybe it's time too?
Other countries tend to have more vacation days per year than the US.
When I worked for a US company I found in Europe we had around 4 times as many days off as our American colleagues.

I would not go for a separate forum / similar. I think we will just lose momentum by fragmenting. Too small a community as it is.

Keep it here, you can have a special spot just for you fellas to go to.
We might pop in every now and then, just to have a look, spy, take the piss and generally annoy you all.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.
