Is there any "Gold Members" these days? Years ago if I remember correctly you had three choices, free, silver @ $3.99, and gold @ $9.99. Time passed the silver disappeared and raised the gold to a buck a day, many folks panicked and left for other sites. I kept my 9.99 gold for many years but the privaledges got stripped little by little till I ended it. It was a very popular site back then, I wonder how the ratio has worked out by raising membership and loosing active members. It could become popular again by easing things a bit.

Quoting Junie2006:

Yep. People could do and say what they liked to each other and really get nasty and even harass people behind the blogs and even if you complained nothing got done. But put up a link to a site sending free Christmas e-mail cards to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan or a disabled help site for disabled bikers on how to get help adapting their bike/trike and funds to do it - and BK pulled it. Yep great hospitality and sense of community spirit here. Did it to themselves.


Years back several members here posted other sites and their intention to take members with them so they just set the monitor on high to reject any url posted, it's easier on them. I'll never understand moderators on sites, they can't ever be fair and balanced as there is always an inside group that can get away with murder.

i never could see paying the price only to be sensored. it would be one thing if it was bad stuff, but to deleat a post because you say something "the powers to be" didnt like was wrong. i never used really bad language or post offensive things, yet they like to pull blogs at will, delete pics or messages when they see fit. so like me, everyone left to a place that has lots more to offer, and not even charge. by todays standards, this site is way outdated. its rare for me to come here more then once a month, and thats only to laugh at how the site is. thats my opinion, i may be wrong.

Quoting SoCo45:

SJ - Uh gee and just how many profiles male and female did you have on ? Sigh....


They share your info and profile round their sites to boost the numbers up. So many have been shocked to find their profile name on their gay dating sites when googling, or "frustrated wives" at one time the gay dating site would appear at the bottom of an e-mail between BK members. Did it to themselves. Mind you BK is now left with those people obsessed with other people's sexual peculialities and want to know the low down on if any one else is and doing things which are perverse. Yep we are left with the dregs. Not exactly the greatese chat up line or way of introducing yourself to a female. "Hi Darling. How would you feel if your fella asked you to do it to him wiht a strap on up the a$$? Oops. That's funny, she has just walked off and I seem to be wearing her drink and a red mark on my cheek. and the doorstaff she has just talked to are walkign towards me. Heck. Was it something I said?"

I wouldn't be surprised if one person owned all the biker sites now. I had two profiles as many do unlike Some Other Members that had a half dozen or more.

It's a strange way to operate indeed, I left for many other sites, been mostly on till recently. Several R.U.B.s and posers made a bunch of fake profiles and ruined it by mass blogging and acting like three year olds. Everytime a new member shows up they run them away, place is run by the faggots now, runned all the bikers off. The owner even sounds like a girly boy on the phone.


They own lots and lots and lots of sites. All big international dating sites catering for different interests. So probably not bikers or dedicated to bikers or biker interest. Just mass dating sites. Big multi corporation industry. I know they are good at picking up anything they don't want you to say on your blogs and delete it. i think they would be good in counter intelligence or IRS searching for real defectives behind IT communications. Did it to themselves I am sure they must be poorer in the pocket because of it.

hahaha heres exactly what im talking about. when i post, this is the message they show: "You have posted a comment on "Dollar A Day". If you are a gold member, it will show up immediately. If you are a standard member, it will be reviewed for approval within one working day". no other site ive been on does this. big brother at its finest

everyone got p****sed off and went Not as if they did not keep warning BK they were not happy. If you chose the moste popular option on the blogs you can see the good old ones of yesteryear BK Barbecue. BK Roadhouse. Me and Bob or K6car9 getting married and arguing. When I was able to pinch a profile photo and do whatever I liked with it. BK has stopped that since. BK didn't make it worth it or want to make it in any way a place to stay. Can still find the old lot on . I have a profile there but under a different name.
