    Question An old member just checking in

    I haven't been on this forum in quite a long time. Way back when, I did have a Valkyrie and later a Goldwing trike, posting very often in TrikeTalk.

    Last year, I did post that I was picking up my dream bike, and 'Indian Vintage' with the hopes that I'd be able to add a Hannigan sidecar within a year's time. Well, unfortunately it looks like it's gonna take a little more time regarding the financial end for that sidecar.

    So as I was wandering through the good old TrikeTalk forum this morning, I noticed that there's no specific forum for Hannigan Trikes. Any reason why? Just curious,,,.

    Hi Rich, great to see you again!

    Years ago, sponsors (vendors) asked for their own dedicated forum that is specific to their brand where they can answer questions directly to their customers and announce new products, post pics, promotions, etc. It was a great idea, one that we still have, but over time, we discovered that after a while many would stop sponsoring and just coast on their legacy posts, pics and promotions to perpetually promote and sell there product for free.

    While that is great for them, unless one is independently wealthy and has hundreds of hours a month to burn, it is impossible for any forum owner to host and maintain a well executed forum and allow vendors to advertise for free with no sponsor support. All forums have dedicated vendor/sponsor forums and also allow sponsors to post forum wide on a limited basis so long as they are active sponsors. If this rule was not in place, everyone with a widget to sell you would be hawking their goods here nonstop and there would be no supporting sponsors on any forum and that would be the death knell of internet forums.

    Hiya Papa Zook! Great to hear form you!

    I completely understand. I just thought is was kinda strange that most of the other popular brands were listed and not Hannigan.

    In any event, I'm gonna try and make an effort to be more active in good old TrikeTalk. And hopefully at some point in the near future, a Hannigan sidecar or trike conversion will be in the works for my Indian Vintage. Hope to see many more of your posts and other familiar members as well.
