i would disagree with that.
the part about needing to buy a common brand to have conversations about it. hell we'd likely have a higher percentage of enthusiasts among current fischer owners than any other brand. half the harley guys i know don't even care about anything other than the bar.
My point was not so much about the forum but about buying a bike knowing there are only a few in existence as opposed to buying something like a Honda which the bloke 3 doors down has one, and 3 doors down from him. Nothing to do with a forum, you can actually meet these people are ride with them, like the OP wanted to do in the first place.
Although, saying that, I own a Honda and have not spoken to the bloke who actually lives 3 doors down with one *facepalm*.
Did someone say bar?
