Casual visitors and new members to this site are always welcome. Most areas are accessible to all but some areas are only available to Sponsors, primarily the 'Help' section. The reason for the limitation to Help is that this totally independent site is funded entirely by individual Sponsors who pay £5.50 per annum to keep the site going. The site does not exist for the purpose of making a profit (at present it just about breaks even), more as a place for anyone with an interest in Blackbirds to meet, a depository for information and a means of getting help for all things Blackbird. The Help section gives instant access to an unbelievable store of information about the Honda Blackbird - if you have a problem with your Blackbird it will almost certainly have been covered off in the Help forum at some point. In addition there are many Sponsors on here who will offer really good guidance and advice, normally on the same day that a problem is aired; they have a wealth of knowledge about the Blackbird, this having been gathered over many years of ownership, riding and putting the miles in. We believe that getting access to the Help resource is extremely good value for the £5.50 Sponsorship charge. The writer of this post saved hundreds if not thousands of pounds during my ownership of two Blackbirds by utilising the expertise and knowledge contained in Help - as a result I still sponsor the site despite having been 'Birdless' for over three years. We hope that you agree with and understand our stance. £5.50 is a very small price to pay for what you will unlock, and is likely to pay for itself many times over. Sponsorship is very straightforward and can be accessed via the 'upgrade account' button at the top of the screen. We would also ask that 'non-sponsors' respect Sponsors by not asking technical questions in any other part of the forum - any such posts will be edited, locked or removed. If for any reason payment of the sponsor charge is an issue please contact JAWS to see what can be arranged. Finally, when sponsoring for the first time please send a Personal Message to JAWS who will press some buttons to give access to all areas.
