Nuovo Falcone forum seems dead...or is it me?
« on: September 17, 2014, 12:05:19 PM »
I love posting and reading posts on WildGuzzi, and love the Nuovo Falcone content.  ;-T

There is (was?) also a dedicated forum for the Nuovo Falcone that seems to take over from 'Paul Friday's Nuovo Falcone webpages' that appear to have disappeared.  :(

This was a recent google search...

www.phpbber.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=142...nuovofalcone

Seems to be available as 'cached' pages, but doesn't seem to be active or available.  ???  Has it died and gone wherever 'dead' websites/forums go  ::(

Mind u my pc skills may not be the sharpest or latest so maybe its me  :-[

It was a useful resource for keeping like-minded NF fans in touch but it seems to be unavailable. Anyone know why?

Will continue to enjoy this site, worried it might corrupt me and make me want an Eldorado; 850T3; Convert; 750 etc etc....  :P

For now will enjoy the NF's on here  :bike

Paul Friday is history.  Sold his  Falcon and left the auditorium.

Go here for a ADV thread devoted to Nuovo Falcone that our vast numbers congregate:

Banquo also has a site that he can reference.

Hi Mark, Yes, the Mighty Falcone Forum has gone for good. It was hosted on a free forum site (along with another forum I ran at the same time) and both disappeared simultaneously, with no warning at all. We lost a lot of good stuff, and I think it's gone for good. As Leafman has said, some of us have migrated to a thread elsewhere, but I would like to see the return of a dedicated NF forum.... :( Paul Friday's site, and his Yahoo Group, disappeared some time ago, and I set up the free forum as a follow on from that. Nothing is life is free, right?

Why not start a Yahoo Group of your own? Not that hard to set one up or keep it going. If none of y'all want to do it, I could start one even though I don't own a Nuovo Falcone - I already own/moderate the Loopframe Guzzi Yahoo Group.

Thanks for the offer Antietam.

For anyone interested, the Nuovo Falcone Virtual Owners Club now resides here:
 http://nuovofalcone.createaforum.com/index.php
As does a resurrected Paul Friday, who has been located, and has been generous enough to upload a load of stuff from his old site, to add to the other available resources that are being linked as we speak.

We have Leafman to thank for continuing to keep the ball rolling on AdvRider, and we won't forget that!  8)

This looks like a really great adventure! Great scenery and some good tunes along the way. Yahoo!  :D Those European guys look really good in formation riding ... love the colors! And how in heaven can they have so much fun without at least 100hp?           ::) /s

(? Something is also mentioned about Falcone "vibrations" and improving your fertility rate? ...... hmmmm?)  :D
