A best places to eat while traveling section.  Sort of like Alton Brown did.  General food review, and most specially for really good pie.


I thought we had a series of "Greasy Spoon" threads (one per region). Maybe that was STN v1.0.

A product store would be nice.  Probably have to deal with spammers though.  I think you could make some quiet $$ too.

Although it's not an option, I would like to see the annual regional meets to have their own sub-forums, like the National does. ESTN, CSTN and WRCM should have their own places for planning and discussion. This especially helps ESTN because it spans multiple regions and there is no well-known spot for next years planning thread.
I second that! Thumbsup

A STN store with Sport-touring accessories? Could be costly,better a deal with say new-enough or several vendors with a "member link" discount thing.I would like to see better organization of STN branded LOGO gear ect so we make sure the site benefits from the use of the LOGO.I am not saying get a patent type approach just make sure anyone making stuff with it has at least asked to use it before selling stuff with it on( and I hope everyone who does contributes to the server fund) More ride reports, I would think a member reviewed,gadget,accessory,gear area would be intresting and helpful.I would like there to be more meets and perhaps an association ,BUT,I fear the formalization of the site required to do this,we would need to keep personal agendas and politics out of here(I have seen many informal organizations ruined by people "taking over" too much).More news from the Globe,we don't always get all the tasty stuff .

I would really like to make ST.N bigger, more informative, and useful...in addition to the current community aspect which I would like to keep integrated and unchanged with any potential updates.  This will require work and $$, but I think the opportunities are there.

Good ideas and feedback. Thumbsup  Keep it coming so I can gather info.

I fully understand the "bigger is better" way of thinking; but I would submit, the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mode should be at least dialed in to some degree too.  I'm sure you get bored with the same old stuff and would like some changes just to keep your interest level high.  That is great!!!  All I'm saying is don't make too many changes too fast because this is a great site and kinda sorta organization.

Gear/gadget reviews (with member ratings)  
(Long term) bike reviews
Rider registry/assistance registry
A store catering specifically to sport-touring needs <-- this one especially because so many members here chide the industry for not taking "us" into account as much. Surely there are products out there, right?

I would be very willing to help out with product/gear reviews and with working with the registry.


Oh, and less Harley bashing from pussies who can't ride anything but an SS bike in a straight line, or who can't think for themselves.  Bigok  Lol Lol Lol

I'm kind of surprised that no one has mentioned a mobile device optimzed website. I have zero idea how much time/effort/money would be required for such an endeavor. But I figure if I'm posting this via iPhone right now, surely I'm not the only one.

I would like to see an STN online magazine. The best of the ride reports, gear/gadget reviews, worthy editorial, etc.

  On the other hand, would it be that hard to get an RSS feed from MotoGP or something like that?

Dear Santa;

As your elves can surely tell you, I've been especially good this year.  I don't carry BBs, and no speeding or wreckless driving tickets, honest!
But I have all that I need.  So please, Mr Santa, if it's ok w/ you... please give the following to ST.N for me;

A place to upload/download GPS files.  With member ratings, on multiple criteria.  ST roads and criteria are different from cruisers and squids.
A place to review vendors of ST.N gear.  Both brick and on-line.  It'd be awfully sweet if it could search and filter, like tires, chain, gloves...  and allow members to rate each on multiple criteria like price, stock, service, turn-around, etc.
A place to log and review travel accomodations;  Resaurants, motels, camp grounds, road-side attractions, etc.  Extra sweet if they could be shown on a map and candy-cane sweet if they could have GPS POI files.
