The response from Wikipedia is below. All I added to it was a link to the forum and explained what topics were available on the forum. Another example of how a few bad apples wreck it for everyone. Oh well.... I continue to try and fulfill my dream of making a Wikipedia entry/contribution.

Haha I just realized what I named this thread:

"Added to forum to the Wikipedia page"

-1 on the English fail

"I refuse to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death."

It was taken down again:

"A club for a single model of bike is not notable and does not belong on Wikipedia - take a look at [[WP:ELNO]]. There are a number of people at [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Motorcycling]] who will back me up with that. Why don't you join the project, take a look at the work that is done on motorcycling articles and perhaps consider contributing? --[[User:Biker Biker|Biker Biker]] ([[User talk:Biker Biker|talk]]) 07:16, 28 May 2010 (UTC) "

I'm still not understanding how this website isn't notable. If you own a Versys and want to rip the bugger apart and rebuild it, you could probably find enough information and people willing to aid you via DIYs with photos to do so.... how is that not notable?
