      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 .

The numbers were down a bit it seemed to me. Not nearly as much traffic, even into Keystone or Deadwood mid day. Beautiful weather. They were predicting 102 degrees a couple days but it didn't get over mid-nineties. Cold at night so we slept well and got up early to ride before everything gets too busy. Iron mountain Road and Needles highway were definitely the high lites of our trip. Custer State Park was great too.

We had a great time. We stayed in Hot Springs...a little far south but had a beautiful ride early every morning through Wind Cave or Custer State Park. Lots of buffalo, antelope and deer. Lots of great riding!

Heard there was a shooting this year. Hadn't been one for something like 18 years.

Sounded like a member of the Iron Pigs club (allegedly members are mostly LEOs) and a member of the H@ll's Angels club got into a scrap and the Iron Pig guy ended up shooting the H@ll's Angel guy.

I believe there are articles on the web for anyone more interested.

Had a great time. Weather was hot in the day, cool at night.

Had a nice ride out on Sat. Aug. 2 (no rain) and also a rain free ride home Aug. 7. Crowds were down, we could travel freely just about any where we went. Beer was cold, babes where hot. My 18th year in Sturgis for the Rally.

    • Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.   
    • Very impressive and unexpected win. Would be nice for this to be the start of Houston’s playoffs jinx.
    • Way to go Don!
    •   thanks!!!  It's on the peg board!!!  I would have forgotten!!!!  
    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

Any guesses on the high score? I'm going to say 285 will win it.
    • Dandy Gobbler Don!
    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
