I started a TTR250 Yahoo Group a decade or so ago but moved to this forum as it was so much easier to use and manage. The Yahoo Group gradually died a death and I can't even get access despite being the owner. My guess it has already been deleted.

The biggest issue I have with this ActiveBoard forum is that it is not very mobile friendly.

I have been contacted with an offer by Tapatalk (see details below) who promise a transition to a mobile-friendly system without losing our huge wealth of data.  Anyone have direct knowledge of a Tapatalk system?
