What's a red R?

I'm posting this here so anyone can just point people at it in the future and not have to explain over and over and over......


All of us who have red Rs assume everyone else knows what that means but I see the question asked so often that this clearly isn't the case. Even people who have been members for years go huh? when it's suggested they get theirs, as seen below.



You don't have to pay to be a member on GDC (GDC = gixxer dot com, to clarify another possible source of confusion). A free membership gives you access to the community and all of its combined wisdom and experience.


Why would you want to pay for something you can have for free, you ask?
  1. No ads so the site is much more responsive and everything loads quicker.
  2. You get access to post in the buy & sell classifieds - a huge marketplace not only for all things specific to GSX-Rs... but also for anything motorcycle related.
  3. And how about just giving something back to such a fantastic, helpful community? If nobody chipped-in, GDC would not be the amazingly helpful resource it has been all these years, for sportbike enthusiasts all around the world.
  4. You'll have access to the members-only RED-R SUBFORUM, in which you'll find a shocking amount of...... well, you'll just have to see for yourself
  5. STICKERZ!!!

Getting your red R is easy.
  • Click on your User CP (control panel) at the top right of your screen
  • Click on "Paid Subscriptions"
  • Pick either a 1 year or Lifetime membership
  • And sign-up!

Re: What's a red R?

FYI: some people question why they need to pay&get their Red R to post in the classifieds when other forums allow you to do that for free.

You should feel safer making a purchase here on GDC,as anyone in the Classifieds posting items for sale had to pay with Paypal or a credit card;which means we have a paper-trail and personal info which greatly reduces parts-scammers who join a forum,offer parts for sale,take your hard earned money,and then disappear without sending the part you paid for. I can think of only 2 instances in over 10yrs where people have had an issues receiving parts they had paid for.
Those 2 issues were resolved by the forum Admin/Staff and everything worked out in the end.

Re: What's a red R?

We also do this to foster the community here. People are more inclined to post threads, ask and answer questions, and share more when they are invested in a site.

I have met probably over 200 of the GDC members IRL, and a consider quite a few of them friends.

This is true, I recall posting that very question (why can't I post in classifieds?) when I first joined with a free membership. NB: after getting my red R, I INSTANTLY (literally within minutes) sold the item I wanted to list, which ended-up paying for my membership several times over.

And they've been stuck with me ever since! (minus an extended haitus due to a cranky, crusty moderator with no bloody sense of humor ).
