The percentage of meets & trips threads on this forum seems to be getting greater. Is it time to consider placing them on their own separate forum?

Hear hear! I'll second that. I did once suggest a page where we could view forthcoming events chronologically but was told that it would take too much of someone's time to set up & manage. Fair enough I guess but would be jolly handy. Dealership breakfast meets could be included along with the TM gatherings and various upcoming motoring events etc

Is there a reason you can't use the existing Events Calendar?

Ditto anything to do with M3W's which I feel now warrant a separate section as they are of no interest to me and I am sure that the converse is true for many 3W owners.

Hi TimG,

As you can see I am organizing a trip to the S&S factory. As long as I have been a member I have seen notices of meets for the M3W listed in this forum and I just followed suit. I did not realize there is a separate “ Meets and Events “ forum listed under Talk Morgan Members section and just found that out now. I will redirect any further communications for the S&S trip to that forum.

Do you do realise that you are posting in the Morgan Three Wheeler section?

It's not really surprising the meets and events here are M3W based.

There are a number of events which tend to be M3W only - eg the Albert Ball and Jungfrau Treffen. As such I suggest that it makes sense that these stay in the Three Wheeler forum.

General Morgan events, such a breakfast meets, dealer days etc, sit better in the Meets and Events forum.

Think we Three Wheeler owners are very happy with how the Three Wheeler section currently operates and, personally, I wouldn’t want to change a thing. It’s great; it’s not broken; and it doesn’t need fixing, unlike our cars!!!

I agree with the Meets and Events for the 4 wheelers and it makes sense using the Three Wheeler section for your events.
I personally enjoy reading the M3W adventures especially of a touring kind, the mechanical misfortunes also make for a very interesting read.

I'm guilty of organizing a Skyline Dr./Blue Ridge Parkway(US) rally and honestly, it didn't occur to me to post anywhere else except the M3W forum. If that's a faux pas, I'm happy also to redirect.

My M3W feels only a distantly related familial bond to its 4-wheel descendants so hasn't jumped the fence into those forums. Have to agree that the 3Wer is a distinct beast, as are probably the characters who drive them.

Now if it's possible to have a dedicated 3W 'Travel, Trips and Rally's' page.....!

The percentage of meets & trips threads on this forum seems to be getting greater. Is it time to consider placing them on their own separate forum?

I have watched this thread with utter disbelief. No one forced these people to click on to Morgan Three Wheeler in fact it appears they are unaware of where they are posting. As the biggest poster of events in this section I feel it is currently the most sensible place to post OUR events. The alternative is to have to try to isolate OUR events from the large number of Four Wheeler ones which are mainly not of interest to us.
Chris , Shaun etc are quite right, it works for us and we ARE Morgan Three Wheeler owners after all. Longer term, I think a page of our own for Events within Morgan Three Wheeler will be better because there will be even more events to come.

Ian - I tend to open topics from the "Newest Topics" box and this gives no indication of which section of the forum that the item was posted in. This is why I may appear to be clicking on Morgan Three Wheeler when in fact I am simply taking a shortcut to the newest topics.

Hi Max,

I find the Active Topics of more use as this picks up the latest posts rather than just new topics, it also shows which forum the post is in.

Hi Atalante 83
We are all part of a great community created by Morgan ownership. We all love the quirkiness whether four or three wheels. Despite also owning many other motors including a hot +4, Maria and I just love the special feeling when with fellow 3W owners and the thrill of actually driving them as was intended. We average 10,000 miles plus every year in our various old and new Morgan 3 Wheelers.
PS, looking forward to meeting you at Montlhery, we are with the VinMog group, and that's another story in itself.
Ian
