Down below is a post: "Rip's New Toy" The poster wants to know about that mighty Egli motorcycle and what became of it.
Well, I try to answer and I am told that I do not have sufficient privilege to do so!!!???
When I try to join the club over the computer..... I fill out all the forms (again) and when I am taken to the place to pay
it says I can't.
Hey, all I wanna do is share some good old pictures instead of thumbnails) with yooze guys and maybe a little info.... but you
won't let me.
So I throw up my hands and not log in at all......
then I get eMails telling me I haven't posted-let us hear from you.
Well, you just heard from me...... but I don't like things that don't work and drive me crazy... so you won't be hearing from me.

I happen to be 100% disabled and walking is painful, ok? So, what is simple for you is not so simple on my end.
Asking a website to work properly is not exactly an out-of-line request.
This is the 21st century and all the other websites I use work.

Rip was having trouble with the Club website and I believe is trying to join using a paper form, so he will get that step done and be able to proceed with obtaining the coveted full member status here on the Forum.

Graham, Why not make Rip a Temporary Honary Member until he sorts out how to join, he seems to have a lot of Vincent credentials and stories.

Rip has managed 80 posts to date. So it can't be so much of a problem? I have to wonder whether the "new toy" post has called his bluff. I hope to be proved wrong on this one though!
