      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Forward Controls

Recommended Posts

Has any one put forward controls or extender controls (shifting and braking) on a Harley Sportster? What are the pluses and minuses of doing this? Wife has a 2000 883 Harley Hugger Sportster that I want to put forward controls on so I can ride it. Wife has put this on hold after reading some negatives on the Internet. We are still thinking about it and want some comments from experienced persons that have done it. Thanks

Just Ride


I had a 2000 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100 and the forward controls and foot pegs fit me just fine.

I have a 1990 springer that I put 3 inch extended controls on and i have noticed on long rides that my feet almost feel numb after riding a while . I am 6ft tall and on a softail I would not recomend them unless your at least 6'2 .

If you are going to go on rides by yourself and you are on the backroads or highway try hanging your heels on the back footpegs for just a different position . Also if you are out and about, check out other bikes and find the owner if they have something on their bikes that you like, ask if you can sit on it to try it out.

I've never had any problems with forward controls. This sportster I have now doesn't have em yet but will soon.

I took a little ride(40 miles) and my legs were a lot more sore than when I had my other bike w/forward controls.
