General Rules
MBF Forum Rules

Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below.

Unfortunately every board has to have some rules and guidelines so here they are.

No commercial posts or advertisements by vendors, dealers or manufacturers unless you are an MBF sponsor. No commercial names, links or logos in forum signatures, avatars, profiles, membership names or bottom of posts. If you are a member and decide to produce or manufacture parts and or accessories for sale and want to use MBF forums as an advertising medium to promote your produt(s) you will need to be an an MBF sponsor.

We also respectfully ask that members do not post any links to competitive forums.

If you wish to advertise your products, services or promotions in the forums, please check our banner and sponsorship opportunities.

Advertise with MBF

No porn on this site or links to any porn, nudes or rescay photos (including avatars, sig pics and galleries.) and please keep your language clean. We'll try not to split hairs on this one so use your own judgment.

This is a "Work Safe and Family Friendly Site" Anyone should be able to click on any message here and not have to worry about what's going to pop up on the screen if your kids or wife are in the room... or at work.

If you see a post that is violates these rules and guidelines please let me know by clicking the report to moderator link and we will deal with it.

Trolls and Spammers: If a troll shows up on our boards I will disable all their accounts and will continue to do so until they go somewhere else to play. Trolls will be banned as fast as I can find them in-order to keep peace in the house.

You may not use MBF resources (posts, PM's, blogs, groups or emails) as a recruiting tool for other sites.

The main thing that makes a board a friendly place to come to is to show respect for each other. You don't have to agree with all the members, heck you don't even have to like all the members here but please show some respect for their differences, and take it easy on the new guys and gals. This is a motorcycle forum not a political forum so if you want to debate the issues of the day, find a political forum and vent your frustrations there.

We have boards setup for a lot of models so if you see one missing and would like it included, please let us know. We will make every effort to accommodate our members.

If you are having an issue with a vendor or manufacture, MBF advertiser or not, please take every measure possible off-line to resolve the issue before airing it in a public manor.

On the other hand, no one wants to see a fellow member get taken by a bad product so again sharing is good. Just remember, most all vendors have had an issue or two in the past. Think before you post. Links to derogatory pages or web sites will be remeoved.

You have full control over your messages. You can edit and delete any of your own messages and you can change any of your profile information.

You can have an "avatar" under your handle but if you link to a picture make sure it's no wider than 150 pix or else it won't load. If you don't have a way to resize your picture just send us the full size picture and I will crop it and load it for you.

Now for the legal BS:

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law.

Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.
