Once again we have hit the time of year where I make the annual announcement for website contributions. I typically ask in December but thought I'd wait until until after the 1st of the year given how tough and wacky 2020 has been. So if you'd like to help keep the site going please consider a contribution. You can find the details here. https://www.thegsresources.com/supportus.php

Thanks again for your support and I wish everyone a Happy New year!

Just got my contribution sent so let's get this ball to rolling fellow GSers. Procrastination time is up, or at least getting close.

Hey Frank I messed up and made my contribution through Paypal to TheGSR, not using your email address as you request.... Paypal took my $$, did you get them?

Did something change?
When I go to donate, Frank wants our screen name in the note box, but then I don't see a note box.
Went all the way to the "Donate Now" button, with no place to put my name or thank Frank.

Anyone?

The note box was at the very top. It took me a minute to find it myself yesterday

Took me a while too to find it "at the very top" of the paypal form.

More specifically: It is where it says "add your forum name". Doesn't really look like an entry field. You click right on the text "add your forum name" and write right over that, or replace that.
Is a large area, can write a paragraph.

Also, the link that is provided for a "paypal calculator" did go to a page that had some discussion about the paypal fees, but i didn't find any calculator.

I can say (for USA anyway) the paypal fee is 2.9% plus 30 cents.
And I can say that I calculated for a paypal payment of $26.10 the fee will be $1.07 ($26.10 times 0.029 then plus 0.30), so the actual donation to TheGSR would be $25.03

Thanks for the breakdown on the fees. I got lazy and just rounded up to $30. Small price to pay for all this forum has meant to me.

I missed the box where you are supposed to put in your forum name but sent the contribution anyway

Hi Frank,

Great site and have had some good advice from members for my GS650Ez. Well worth a $ or 2.

Have to click on the wording in the box about a 1/3rd of the way down, to replace it with your handle......

Time flies.
I swear I just donated recently, but it looks like my last donation was January 2020.

And just now. Cheers!

While I'm not a very active member, I relied heavily on The GS Resources and its great members when I rebuilt my GS850G a number of years ago. In short, I learned a lot from this place. It is a fantastic resource and I am happy to help assist financially in continuing its existence. Thank you, Frank, for maintaining this fantastic site so that it can continue to help others interested in keeping these great bikes on the road.

So glad @Bruno commented. Hadn't seen this post until now. Normally try to donate earlier in the year but it slipped my mind. I don't even own a GS anymore but still visit this site almost daily. Hope to get to ride with some of y'all this year.

I don't post on here as much as I used to, but this is a great place to learn information and talk with good people. Donation sent.

I keep up an effort to fling a few bucks in the pot every quarter.
If it keeps the wolf from the door, that's all good.

THanks.
Good first post.

Would welcome you to post an introduction in the "owners" section.
Introduce yourself and your bike(s).
