The number of visitors in March 2003 was a new record! According to the counter there were 109,797 page views during the month, that's over 30,000 page views more than the last record! The busiest month before that was December 2002 with 79,350 page views. The busiest day was March 31th with 5,988 page views, even that a new record. The previous record was made on March 17th with 5,028 page views.


The number of page views on my site is now over 850,000 since the start in September 2001 (over 222,000 unique visitors). I'm very happy for the traffic! I thank you all for visiting my site. I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will come again some time.

The total number of visitors should actually be higher, the counter has not been working properly all of the time.


Sometimes I get mail from people who complain that their favourite model is not on my site. In many cases they haven't even bothered to look properly or used the search engine. But there are still many models missing. I'm doing my best and will fill in the gaps as fast as I can. This is not my profession; I'm doing this in my spare time. I could use some help to be able to get more things done. Please send me pictures, brochures and specs or complete model histories... Anything at all that can make the site more complete. Here's more info.

One more thing: PLEASE visit the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) pages before sending me questions about your bikes, manuals etc. I would love to help you all but I haven't got enough time to do it anymore. You may find an answer to your question on the FAQ pages, check it out! Frequently Asked Questions
