There are threads out there that should never be hard to find...

What to do if you crash, how to treat road rash, etc...

So if it truely is a timeless thread, one that should never be lost, just reply to this thread with a link. This list will probably evolve, so don't be surprised if it changes over time. Just think of this as the beginning of an index of the forums...

Hate to dampen your enthusiasm, K'tesh, but one must recognize that all information here is important to someone, and everyone's priorities are different. Why complicate an already workable system? This site is quite navigable. If all else fails, there is a 'search' box.

04-07-2008, 08:51 PM
Thanks for the input...

True, but I've noticed a lot of newbie questions that are the same thing over and over again. On the 'search' box, I've found several times that I can't even find older topics that I, myself, started.

I think that there are a lot of topics that deserve a sticky status, but who wants to have to wade thru a ton of sticky threads, when one would do the job of many.

K'tesh - How about:

Rider Courtesy
Respecting Pedestrians
Shared Path Ettiquet (sp)
How to ride downtown

Stuff like that? It's kind of "rules of the road" but not necessarily legal stuff.

If you can find me some threads, I'd be happy to add them...

After finding the "Ride between the Raindrops (http://bikeportland.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3743)" post, I realize that we need a "Cool Tools" category.
