I know a few of you frequent this site.

I go there once in a while. I have no AC's but still enjoyed the site.

It's been dead for a while. Will it come back or is it gone for good?

Maybe it moved :smt017

I get this when I click on the shortcut I made some time ago...

It's been dead for a while now.

Matty evidently hasn't paid the bills.
Wasting time on 2T forums since the dawn of the internets. RD350LC, TDR250, KH400, 300XCW. Looking for an RZ350.

Domain expired end of the year. There was more action there than this forum since it reached a broader range of riders although mostly focused on AC RDs. There was some info on there I would have liked to keep!

Its a shame the bill wasn’t paid AND that there wasn’t/ isn’t a link to donate there.

Its always a shame when forums die cos the owner has lost interest, they should just pas it on to someone who cares, but they rarely do.

I wasn't there often, but yeah- great stories, info, and bike pics gone.

Not sure if any of you guys went on the AF1 (Aprilia) forum, but it's also recently gone. I was on there all the time and had a build thread.

Very sad, but I know what's coming. The pics I'm posting will dissapear as soon as the new host gets enough customers to satisfy their greed. More websites will disappear, too. I'm getting used to it.

Have to roll with the punches, and be prepared to start over.

It's the people, and the friendships, that I really miss.

Confused!!

When I try your link, or my previous links, or when I search, I get this:

This site can’t be reached
The webpage at https://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/forum.php might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
ERR_SPDY_INADEQUATE_TRANSPORT_SECURITY

I can still get in the AF1 website. I can shop, or do other stuff, but, when I click on FORUMS, I get the same message.

Try changing web browsers. Seems you have transport layer security issues that may be due to the version of whatever it is you are using.

Tried other browsers. Not working for me. Tried every setting on the phone I can find.

Nothing has worked to get me on the site.

Hmmm. The link below worked for me. Took me to the forum section and I was able to look at posts.

Are you using an old computer? My last computer began giving me that message on some sites ApriliaForum being one. So I bought a newer computer that would use the latest FireFox and no problems. Try Opera or Stainless browsers for those sites but be careful security is non existent on them.

Thanks. I'm using my phone. Phone isn't old.
Always used my phone to get on AF1, but around a month ago, it started saying the website is no longer at that address.
I think I can view everything on the AF1 website except the forum. Shopping, etc. is ok. :smt017

I just tried it on Firefox on Android, and Safari on an iPhone and it worked on both.
