Motorcycle IRC / Chat

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by geckom, Sep 7, 2012.

  1. Anyone know of a good place for motorcycle live chat or IRC? Been looking around for a place to chat with others (when not on the netrider forums) but cant find any where.

    Any suggestions?


  2. You are 5-6 years too late I'm afraid, there used to be a very strong chat channel #ausmoto and #netrider on irc on the oz.org network but it died in the arse as facebook and others have taken over.
  3. Well I might idle on #netrider on oz.org for now if anyone wants to join me.
  4. You'll be idling for a looooong time as the channel is no longer registered.
  5. Actually, got a few people on #motorcycles on Austnet which will do. Hopefully it will grow, may die, but worth a try.
  6. Could be fun to have chat as part of this site. There are a few vBulletin modules around that support it.

    Then again, it could be a complete disaster too.
  7. That was tried in the past, didn't really work out.

    Better to organise a ride or coffee night and chat in real life.
  8. /me slaps geckom around a bit with a large trout

  9. Yes netrider had one a couple of times and it died quickly each time.
  10. I prefer shoutboxes - likely coming soon to a Netrider website near you :)
