Like the forum? Want to help out? Want an AWESOME custom badge over your name?

If you notice over to the left, my name has a Site Administrator badge below it, and a custom title. By default, users get the titles "New User," "Regular User," and "Frequent Poster" with matching badges Image, Image, and Image. If you want a custom badge and title, all you have to do is donate to support this forum. Donating helps keep this site open, but most importantly, ad-free. I pay all costs out-of-pocket, and do all moderating, maintaining, and updating with no compensation. Any donation goes directly to help me keep this place up, and is greatly appreciated. :D


> If you donate $0 to $5, I'll give you a custom title of your choice (within reason). For example, mine is currently "Benevolent Overlord."

> If you donate $5+ to $20, I'll give you a custom title of your choice (within reason) and the "Forum Benefactor" badge, which looks like this: Image.

> If you donate more than $20, I'll give you a custom title of your choice (within reason) and I'll custom make you a badge of your choice with whatever text or image you want on it. If you're handy, you can make one yourself too. Members in this tier can change their badge and title whenever they want, all they have to do is ask and I'll update it. For example, let's say you want the title "resident ninja" -- I could make you a badge like this: Image and update your title accordingly. If you want to donate on this tier and make your own badge, the template is here or here. If no custom title is requested, I'll use the default Forum Benefactor badge.

> If you donate A LOT, you can request other things and features too. I'm always open to ideas for improving the forum too, even if you aren't a contributing member.

Donating is easy, just click here to donate to the forums! . All proceeds go to fund the forum, to buy me a beer, or to my kid's college fund, so it's for a good cause. ;) Thanks everyone for making this a great forum, and I appreciate any support you can give!

A special thanks to everyone who has donated so far -- Alibally, DAB, Kermit, Stejay, tomtic, and Indyglow!

A very special thanks for a generous donation from you you, it was most appreciated!

My costs expended for this year so far are almost completely covered at this point. Thank you guys so much, your generosity warms my heart. :D


Only one of you requested a custom title, and no custom badge has been requested. If your donation was high enough to justify either, please PM me if you want a custom title or badge, otherwise I'll leave you with the Forum Benefactor badge and title.

Happy to help. It's better than ads. Certain social networking sites that will remain nameless have too many now. They get really annoying.
Hopefully a nice pcx sticker might be available soon?

Maddiedog I read your info on installing a windshield, is that on a pcx 125 or 150? I just bought a 2013 with a givi medium height windshield and ordered the tall 323 dt after reading some of the posts on forum. I was told by the company I ordered my 323 that the mirror extensions don't work with the 150 because of threads. So they said it needs modification. So I am wondering if you have a 125 as you didn't say anything about the extensions. They are including them with the windshield. I ordered it from sporttour.
I presently own a 2009 silverwing. I bought that in July after selling my 2006 reflex 250. I was impressed with it on the highway and just the over all features of the scooters, so bought a hold over and sold my 2007 1100 v star once, I knew I liked the silverwing on the road. I need the 150 for in our small town the 600 is a little too much for me being only 5'2 and the weight for just running short trips. My first 5 bikes were all Honda's and than 3 yamaha's, a Harley and back to yamaha. Now I love the scooters, people think I'm nuts, I may have thought that too before. I had a chinese 150 than, the 250, & now the 600 & the pcx 150. Just a short ride and I knew I needed a taller windshield.
Thanks for your GREAT info on installation.
It will come in handy when I get mine, I have it in a heated garage, so I will be putting it on as soon as it arrives.

For those who are on the fence about giving, keep in mind that this forum has been a pivotal point in your decision about buying a PCX. It has been your "go to" place for repairs and upgrades. Last but not least, it has been the centerpiece for new friendships throughout the world. It has done what Clubpcx couldn't do. It brought use all together as a community and has given us adventures to share with others.

Thanks to Lecompte and RagtopLady for their donations.

A very special thanks to kramnala58 and Sasa from New York for their very generous donations. Sasa, you didn't indicate your username, and your email didn't cross-reference to any users -- please PM me if you want a donor title/rank!

A reminder that any of you donating members can have custom badges or titles whenever. The only one requesting a custom title so far was Kermit, and any of you can get one! Let me know what you want, if you want it. I don't mind having some fun with it. :)

Thanks Mel! Your kind words are much appreciated. I really do spend lots of time promoting good posting and conversation here, so any money donated just helps support my efforts of cultivating this site into something great.


I'd like to add that any little donation counts -- even $5 will pay for a couple of weeks of hosting! ;)
