In other words, somewhere to say that you have seen a bike at given location /time with a brief description, etc. The we can see if it is one of us, etc

Hi Mark,

Tnx for your suggestion but to be brutally honest I do not really understand what you mean.
You could open a new topic like this in e.g. "Biking in general" - or is that not what you are looking to accomplish?

Can you elaborate a bit on what exactly you are suggesting?

I think he means.

I saw a silver pan on the M5 yesterday. Was it you?

There are approaching 8000 Honda Pan Europeans registered for the road in the UK. I don't know the figures for the US or elsewhere for that matter. Statistically the chances of the owner of one of those also being on this forum are actually fairly slim. However I wouldn't want to stop anyone setting up an 'I Spy' section as it might produce some surprises and we won't know until it is tried.
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

Sure but anyone can open such a topic now, can't they?

I'm unsure what Mark means with "main topic". Keith and I have tried to keep the number of entries on the board index small, and frankly I'd like to keep it that way, but if there's a need to add an entry and you folks subscribe to the suggestion then it's a small matter.

We have this on our site which is similar to what HH is on about which one of the members posted a couple years back

Quoted from 1st post

"Have you Spotted an ST1100 or ST1300 on the road?

Post it up here, tell us where, when & what type, model, and if you got to meet the rider!

Post something like the below:

1040 am saturday, surfers paridise QLD
a few 1300's with a white 1100 supervising
can think of better places to be but there they were
shirt and badges a give away, bit hard to keep up in a 16 ton bus
had to let them go
paul t "

http://ozstoc.com/index.php?topic=116.msg503#msg503

Also used in conjunction with the OzStoc business cards. If we see an ST without an OzStoc sticker and can't see the owner around we leave a card on the bike otherwise give the owner a card. The aim is to find every ST in the country and so far over 600 members (over about 3 years) nation wide plus a few international members as well.

Thanks Alan, I had a look and as I expected it is indeed a topic in their General Discussions section.
Any member is free to open something along those lines here as well.

Happy to abide. There may not be enough members yet to make it worthwhile.
