BM was started in the summer of 2006 after over 3 years of development as an offshoot from Bike Chat.net, predominantly aimed at being a dating site. Matt is the site owner who designed BM from the ground up (as a hobby) and continues to maintain it with voluntary help from the moderators who are here to ensure forum etiquette, check profiles/photos are legit and to stop you (the members) from being spammed by malicious users.
The funds raised through memberships goes towards promoting the site with full-page adverts in magazines such as Bike, Performance Bikes, Ride, MCN etc as well as online advertising on Facebook and Google.
Honda Model Numbers appear in the VINs of all Honda models using the VIN system (to date, this now includes most countries, except France...) (There is more about the construction and use of VINs on this page.) Model Numbers also tend to define the various "generations" of related Honda motorcycle models, though this is not always the case.
Of course, many registrations were lost or not transfered by the various councils, and when all the old records had finally been entered (by about 1980) there were still many vehicles that were not on the new register.
There are also voluntary events co-ordinators for most areas of the United Kingdom who are there to help you if you wish to set up an event/meet up/ride out.Back in 1974, the DVLA started computerising vehicle registrations.Before then registrations were carried out by County Councils or Borough Councils, but Centralised Registration pulled all these records together onto a computerised system.The continuance of paid Member benefits, which includes the addition of online access to one model-specific service manual, MSF rider-training reimbursement and more, will remain exclusive to those HRCA Members until the expiration of their current paid membership.Hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts enjoy riding their Hondas as often as possible.The second position in the Honda motorcycle Model Number is occupied by a letter relating to the type of motorcycle.
