 I see the Oldrice homepage which had a link to this site is finally gone. Sad day indeed.
 Hoping that the articles posted were saved to another source or website. I often went to them for reference and photos. Being the original source for most of the posted articles, Swiss, has passed I am hoping they are not lost.

 Anyone take the initiative to save them? If so can they be shared?

Hey guys ... just a quick heads up ... yes, indeed, back in 2013, I took the initiative to save the treasure trove of fantastic XL Honda resources.  This was my "contingency plan" in case Geoff would ever decide not to continue paying for the webhosting of the website he owns and managed, formerly known as Oldrice.com.  I did not want all the excellent XL Honda resources to simply go *pfffttt* into thin air in cyberspace - so to say. 

As of 14 June 2018, I noticed that Geoff's website Oldrice.com ceased to exist. This notice came up instead when I clicked on his website links:

This domain has expired. If you owned this domain, contact your domain registration service provider for further assistance.

I wish Geoff all the very best in his new endeavours.


I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate to all the wonderful members (4725 members to date) here at The XL Board:

As stated on 7 September 2012:

"Hi Guys … please note I am posting the following in the spirit of clarity & transparency for the information of the members of The XL Board. 

I have been given a heads up about there being some confusion and concern regarding members donations and how and if they are associated with the 2 respective platforms known as Oldrice.com and The XL Board.  

Oldrice.com i.e.  http://www.oldrice.com/   

&  

The XL Board i.e. http://forum1.aimoo.com/XLBoard  are two entirely different entities.   

The website known as Oldrice.com sits on a totally different website hosting platform to the forum known as The XL Board - Aimoo.com.  I reiterate, I cannot and do not manage the website Oldrice.com in any way – I only own and manage this specific forum known as The XL Board sitting on Aimoo.com’s platform.  


Please have a browse through the invaluable resources at your leisure guys:
