Welcome to my blog!

I need some feedback, please.

The viewing figures for the site are gradually dropping off, week by week.

Now logic says that, of course this will happen. The bikes are getting older, more and more are getting to the stage that they are not viable to maintain and thus are being scrapped.

It's a great shame but it is a fact of life that some good bikes are also getting scrapped since they are worth more in parts than as a running machine.

Ok, so we all know that. What I am asking here is, how do you view this site? That is, do you view it on a desktop PC, a tablet or a mobile phone?

Are the numbers going down through it not being very mobile friendly ( I do know that is not! ).

I have tried to make it as compatible with all platforms, as much as I can within the limited capabilities of the hosting platform format.

They have recently brought out a newer version, in beta, for active pages. These are pages that automatically re-organise themselves to fit whatever they are being viewed on. I am trying to find out if it is worth while spending the huge amount of time and energy to convert all the over 100 pages of this site.

Your input would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi John. I usually view on a pc. I occasionally use the mobile for quick reference, in the garage for example.

I generally view the internet on a tablet, came across by accident, whilst viewing ebay listings for parts that I require, I don't recall coming up via search engines whilst trawling the internet for suppliers etc.

Sorry Barry,
Doug used to make these in the US for us, but since his illness we have stopped doing them. I get askes fairly frequently for one, so it's something I may look at again over the winter.
