no, it's not as active as it used to be, but yes, it is still very popular

We have several reasons for the lower level of activity these days........

1. the demographic of Hornet owners, an indeed, all motorcyclists, has changed dramatically over the last decade or so. Motorcyclists on the whole tend to be a little older, family folk, with little time for internet nonsense

2. the Hornet is now obsolete in a lot of parts of the world (including the UK) so the available user base is beginning to drop

3. social media now absorbs a lot of people's time.

As the usage here has dropped, we've seen a commesurate rise in people using our FaceBook page, so we will keep going, but maybe in a different format.

This is one reason why we no longer have a paid membership scheme.

If you didn't realise we are also on FB, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/35293037896/ and yes, it's still run by myself and Scott, so don't think you can switch platforms and get away from us :blast

Having met some of the forum members at the last Highland Sting, I wish I'd got a hornet 10 years ago. There a great friendly bunch and the forum must have been "buzzin" back then, when the hornet was a more popular bike.

I bought both my Hornets from members so the forum's still very useful and there's always good people willing to help if you have any issues with your bike. :)
