By registering at the KZrider.com community, you agree to the following terms. KZrider.com reserves the right to remove any posting it finds unsuitable. Members who refuse to play by the following rules will be excluded from the discussion board.

PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISING IS STRICTLY LIMITED
KZrider is more than a website. Its members comprise a community of KZ enthusiasts dedicated to encouraging and preserving our sport and passion for Kawasaki Z, Z1 and KZ motorcycles. We pursue our passion because we enjoy it, not to make money from it. To that end KZrider.com is not a place for you to solicit sales of any kind. No member is allowed to refer to their own business, or any business to which he/she is associated, through the discussion forum or personal messaging system (U2U). Be aware, the U2U feature has been abused in the past. If any member solicits an unwelcomed solicitation through the U2U system please report that solicitation to the Administrator or Moderators promptly.

There are four exceptions to this policy:
1. As permitted in Classifieds (consumer-to-consumer transactions).
2. An item may be offered for sale as a consumer-to-consumer transaction in any forum where there exists reasonable expectation of being welcomed by another member who has previously posted in the thread ("cold calls" and "door-to-door" solicitations are prohibited).
3. Each member is allowed a simple link (somesite.com) in their signature, which link shall include no description of any kind.
4. Paying advertisers are allowed to post in the Vendor forum.

KEEP IT CLEAN
You may not post libelous or defamatory messages or materials, or include links to such materials in your postings. You may not post messages that are obscene, violent, abusive or designed to harass or intimidate another individual. Pornography, Warez, or any other illegal transactions may not be posted or included in members profiles. No blatant nudity.

BE CIVILIZED
Don't use racial, ethnic, or gender slurs, religiously derogatory comments or any other personal discriminations even in jest. Use of slurs needlessly offends people - whether or not they're a member of the group you've insulted. Respect others' religious beliefs and culture. Recognize that others have religious and personal beliefs which may differ from yours. Stay away from political debates. Keep the language and behaviour appropriate.

USE DESCRIPTIVE THREAD TITLES
When you post a new thread, please give users some idea of what it contains in the title. Thread titles like "Help" or "Check this out!" are cheap ways of getting users to look at a thread they might not care about, and would not have clicked on had the full title "Help, I need credit card numbers!" been used. Furthermore, it helps stop multiple threads on the same subject. When starting a new thread, describe the content of your thread clearly in the 'Subject' line of your post. Don't use vague subjects. Use descriptive and specific subject lines. This helps others decide whether your particular words of wisdom relate to a topic they care about. For example: "HELP!!" is not an appropriate subject and neither is "My bike doesn't run".

PLEASE DON'T SHOUT!
That cap lock key wasn't invented to help you get your message across. Messages written in all caps are annoying, hard to read, and loud.

HAS IT BEEN POSTED ALREADY?
Please look for an existing thread on a subject before you post one about it. Chances are good that your question has already been answered. There is a search feature on these forums, use it. Starting topics that have already been answered in great detail is a waste of everyone's time. Look to see if information you're about to post has just been posted by someone else. Then go ahead and post.

WE HAVE SECTIONS FOR A REASON
The Technical Forums have different sections for a reason. If you're not sure, use your best judgment. 

DON'T CROSS-POST
Cross-posting is when you post the same message multiple times in various threads or forums. We only need to see it once guys. 

STAY ON TOPIC
Keep threads on topic. If you've got something completely unrelated to say then start a new thread. Unresponsive solicitations for consumer-to-consumer sale are prohibited as being unrelated and off topic, but solicitations for consumer-to-consumer sale may be posted in Classifieds.

CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF YOUR WORDS BEFORE POSTING
Adhere to the same high standards (or higher) of behaviour online that you follow in real life. In real life, most people are fairly polite and law abiding. The same rules of behaviour are expected on any list.

MESSAGES SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE TOPIC BEING DISCUSSED
or introduce a relevant idea. If you've read enough threads, you've already learned how annoying it is to go through "Me Too" posts. A "Me Too" is a post that says "I agree with what the other guy said" and otherwise does not add to the content. If you have a comment about someone else's post, tell them via U2U or email. Generally speaking, unless it concerns the entire group and is within the group's stated purpose, you should reply only to the author. Avoid replies or responses to the whole list of yes, no, or "I agree!". This is meaningless and you too would be annoyed to open such a message.

WELCOME TO KZRIDER
If you are a new member, introduce yourself by posting to the New Member Forum. While it's nice to welcome a new member, only do so if they have posted in the New Members forum. There is no need for 50 welcome posts in a technical forum thread.

U2U IS A WONDERFUL FEATURE
Please don't start a topic that is directed at one person that could be put into a U2U to them. If you have a message for one or two posters, use U2U or email.

PICTURE PERFECT
Images & attachments may be posted as long as they are not explicive or offensive. Images are limited in size to 2mb. The Project Forum is for members' rides only and is an ideal place to document your rebuild.

FLAME-WARS
Don't even start them, they will be ended, quickly, and you'll find yourself on the short bus. Flaming: Personal attacks in cyberspace can be particularly vicious. Flaming is the rather nasty art of attacking others on a personal level.

Awesome. The more Kaws the better the photo ops. Hehe. The plan is to avoid the slabs, so a 440 will be just fine.

I have volunteered to take the 2nd leg of the relay ride in the main thread for this event so unless someone else wants to do this then here is what we have so far.

If anyone signed up for Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ontario Canada and Michigan please post a confirmation as to what part you can cover of the route.

We REALLY need a Mississippi (hopefully around the mid-eastern side of the state) & Western New York near the lake or Erie PA relayer! Also anyone around the Bowling Green Ky area would help make the distances more manageable.

Here is the very tentative route:



At the end of the route the token will be in Michigan for a possible hand off to the Chicago area or it can be shipped if needed.

Rage, I'm in central MS., let me know how you have the relay routed. I'd love to ride in this one. Thankz.

I'm in Florence, Ms. , six miles below Jackson. I can do part of the route with KraZy if y'all need a rider here. It's late now so I haven't tried to put my name on the map. Let me know. This is freakin' awesome.

We have been hoping to get a Mississippi rider. I have been wanting to ride the Natchez Trace also, so maybe we can work that into our meet-up spot. Boatdrinks and I are close to each other so we have been talking bout riding some together maybe all three of us can meet up. Definetly add yourself to the map. We are part of the second leg so still plenty of time to plan it all out. Welcome aboard

Well, I know it wasn't any of my relatives. My brother is the only miller I'm related to in all of ohio I think. And my sister has a different Dad, different last name. I think there's about 2 pages of millers in the phone book though. hahaha

Sure! No one is going to be left out as long as the flag hasn't already made through that part of the leg.

I'll be the one bringing it that direction so there is a couple of options for you since your pretty close to Hynohio and Cobura. I had planned on passing it to Hypnohio but we can work out whatever works for you and the others, buddy riding with Hypnohio or Cobura, putting yourself between the two or maybe even helping to take it further north from Cobura toward the Canadians.

We're still in need of a rider to fill the Pitt's to Canada segment, so if you know of anyone then let them know about this to see if they might help out.

Marked. I can meet hypnohio anywhere I need to. I don't mind ridding north or east to Pittsburgh. There's some nice state routes that will get me to Pittsburgh.

Hypnohio here-
I'm near Marietta and was planning going up rt 7 along the river, but can meet up anywhere to hand off or ride together. Depends on whether more Ohioans get into the mix.

Depending on time available off of work I would be interested. I live near KZRage, so maybe a ride-along or something of the sort. Any idea when you will get the flag, Jim?

Sorry for being absent, getting ready for some surgery and not feeling to well at the moment. Not to worry, I'll be fit and ready when the flag makes it to leg#2 to be sure it completes our leg as planned.

Melvin the flag is on its own schedule, best to watch the other relay threads here to monitor its progress to our leg. Still guessing June or later though at this point.
