Support VTF, make a Donation.

PostAuthor: mark75 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 6:55 pm

As everyone probably knows, Virago Tech Forum is totally volunteer, and exists completely on donations to exist. [therefore, no one has to put up with those annoying & distracting ads like most places]

the bottom line is the site needs your help to stay on the air. [on the web, as it were]

If anything you have seen here has helped you, think of how much you saved by not having to have your tech/mechanic/buddy fix-it then charge you... donate a small part of that.

the price of your favorite "mocha latte" or cuppa-joe [or maybe the price of a Mardi Gras beer] will help keep VTF going.

Please, Donate to VTF today. PayPal, CC, Check, even good-old Cash still accepted.

Just being able to d/l a manual is worth the price of admission.

Come on people. Your chance to give back to the forum! Any amount will do, doesn't have to be an insane amount. Give up coffee or that pack of smoke for a week can help keep this site going and the Info to keep your bike on the road!

:yup: :yup: :yup:

Yup..what they all said. Sure would hate to see this outfit have to convert to a pay-to-play system. Would be a whole lotta disappointed riders out there. Not to mention a whole lot broker riders, considering what a dedicated shop mechanic charges. Being able to diagnose and wrench on your own ride when ever a problem rears it's ugly head is, to me, just as satisfying as the ride itself. Forums, such as this, are getting soooo hard to come by now-a-days. Reminds me the "first" time I dished out boo-koo bucks to a service garage for something I could have fixed myself for $10. Even though it was on a car...if only someplace like this existed back in the day. Hell, only computers back then were in the movies. I've said it before, just being able to download a manual is gold. Right there, person saves $20 or so.
