Smile There's a new Sheriff in town!


Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you all know that I have recently sold the website to Vertical Scope (VS), the group that runs Motorcycle.com.

As most of you know, I haven't had the time to invest in maintaining the site in the way it or you members deserve. I'm positive the great folks at Vertical Scope will give VN750.com the attention it deserves and will be much more responsive to issues that arise from daily use. They have a vast number of resources and their tech group is a bunch of enthusiasts as well.

VS isn’t planning any major changes and are only really taking over the technical duties at this point in time. They are also welcoming the current moderator staff with open arms (Dianna still is the heart of VN750). So this isn’t goodbye for me, it’s just a turnover of control for the better of the community.

Our new tech contact will be a gentleman by the name of Dwayn who will be using the handle “administrator”. He will be monitoring everything moving forward, and he is also a motorsports enthusiast. He is also interested in photography.

With all that said, I want to thank you all for being the best group of people around! This community is definitely unique and the last few years have been great! I appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and commitment to making VN750.com one of the most vibrant and helpful communities I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a part of. I am looking forward to an even better community moving forward.

Thank you, everyone, for the memories. Here’s to many more years of success for VN750.com!

Keep the shiny side up!

Anthony “DMAG”

Just want to put it out there that this sight rocks! and thanks to you, DMAG, and everybody else that have helped make it that way. With the help of this website and of course a little wrench time, I know my bike in and out, which makes me love it that much more. I know with the participation from all the members on here, this site will continue being the best.

98 VN750 with ears shaved, K&N's, Dial a Jet, and yes, bags when it's practical.

From one who's been here since the start of it all, you've done the site well, DMAG!! (and of course you too Dianna!!)
We can only hope VS can fill your shoes. And since you have good things to say about them, they must be worthy of the position.

So, here's to the handing over of the badge to the new Sheriff, to Vertical Scope.
Welcome to our little corner of the Internet.
