      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!!!


Hand Grips

Recommended Posts

Somehow one of my guests lost a hand grip off my '96 Panterra - how could you not notice a missing grip or realize it was loose.  So now I have purchased a set of new grips and some grip glue.  Prior to this I have never heard of grip glue.  Does anyone have experience, lessons learned on gluing on new grips?  I plan to bring the sled into a heated shed for this procedure.  I have read on various sites that the glue is really super-glue and that they end up with the grips only getting on half-way before the glue sets.

It's not fun. Lot's of vid's on the tube. Same process as doing motocross bikes which they replace a lot.

Yes the glue sets fast and "you only got one shot" or it's a big pain in the ars!  Good luck.

take old grips off

get new grips, from my experience you get what you pay for. A nicer grip will last longer.

get some .025" safety wire, dont go smaller as it will cut the grip. Any bigger is too large imho.

Wrap around grip on each end and turn and twist the wire ends together so they snug down the grip to handlebar and make sure you get it positined so they don't snag your gloves

or just splurge for ODI lock ons and never miss with glue or wire again?
