Central Valley Riders Rules

Thank you for joining us on CentralValleyRiders.com (CVR). This forum was started to give motorcycle riders and enthusiasts a place to meet, chat, share ideas and help encourage the love of the ride in Californiaís Central Valley.

As the forum grows we find it necessary to spell out some basic ground rules to keep the forum a positive/work safe environment for all members. Below are the forum rules. By using this forum, you agree to abide by the CVR rules. Any member who posts needs to have read these forum policies. Ignorance of any rules as an excuse for not following the rules, policies, and guidelines outlined here will not be accepted. Suspension of a user account may be the consequence.

We do not want to censor messages based on the opinions expressed within posts and we do not enjoy deleting posts or threads. We will, however, delete content and ban users as necessary to enforce the policies outlined here and use our best judgment to keep the spirit of the forum in line with these rules.

We reserve the right and will: remove, modify or move posts at our discretion, without explanation and without contacting the member unless we deem it necessary. If you have a question about these policies or a specific post or thread you may contact the administrator or moderator through the private message feature. Some threads may begin as benign topics and may devolve inappropriately. When a thread requires so many post deletes that continuity will be affected we may decide to remove the entire thread, no matter how innocently it may have begun.

Users are permitted a maximum of one account, active or inactive, regardless of how many companies you represent. If you have forgotten your log in details and are unable to retrieve them via the system, do not create a new account, please contact us. If a user is banned they are not permitted to create a new account to bypass the ban.
