I am seeing one or two options that seem to be favoured.
Please let me know which of the following you prefer:

-R125forum.co.uk and / or R125forum.com
-BikerChat.co.uk

or finally.
We could have both.
Have the main forum domain name as BikerChat.co.uk, but also have the R125Forum domain, which we can hand out / give to people on R125s.
That way we have the best of both worlds perhaps? (Or we may just confuse people...)

Go for both, then if this R125 site is a success it gives you a very good amount of growing room, to incorporate all bikers, not just the 125 fans, but initially it will give you some extra hits to here to help this place grow.

Okay.
So, I bought all three.

-R125forum.co.uk
-R125forum.com
-bikerchat.co.uk

I will set R125forum.co.uk as the primary URL, and we will have the other two pointing here.
This means, we keep our heritage as an R125 community, but when and if we want to expand to other bikers, we can hand out the Bikerchat URL as well.
And in time, if we want, we have the option of switching to the Bikerchat URL.

I propose that we have "R125 Biker Chat" on the banner, as it incorperates both.
It also doesn't single us out as an 'owners club'.

Or would you prefer to simply have, 'R125 Forum' on the banner?

I must say however, that big bikes will definately play a key role in our success. A lot of the members we rely on for information, are all riding big bikes.
Also, in order to grow to our full potential, we should at the very least be accepting of OTHER 125 bikes. Especially those perhaps who do not already have large communities.

That is my two cents, but of course, it is up to all of you :)

I'd have .com as the main one, seems more universal to me

oops, my mistake. That is what I meant, and is what I have done hehe.
It is also the shorter of the two (fractionally) hehe.

Sounds like a good choice :)
See how cheap you can get them...

You will probably have to get a batch order done, and then sell them individually to members, posting them yourself.
And slowly make back the money you spent....

Would you be okay with that?
That is the cheapest method available...

Quick google search:
http://www.pure-vinyl.co.uk/storepage784516.aspx
1-10 = £1.00 each
11-49 = 75p
50+ = 50p each
If we got 50 @ 50p each, that is £25.
If we sold them for £1.00, that 14p profit per sticker if you wanted to make a profit.

You can see if you can source them cheaper if you like :)
Alternatively, if you have them made to order, you can have your username along with the URL.
(although thinking about it, I don't have space on my bike for more than just the URL, but it would be nice...).

I think we should keep it as an r125 forum, if we expand to other biker ( aprillia owners being main concern ) things will start kicking of and going silly. up to you though fish, just my view lol.

I agree personally. It's what bought us all together in the first place

We will see how it goes for now with just the R125. :)

Also... Update: I am currently putting the Domain names active. Should be done within the hour or so... With ANY luck, there should be minimal outage.
