    Many people are aware that the site search function rarely turns up the results we've been looking for.

    Unfortunately, SkyNet has nearly reached full self awareness. But in the mean time, we can use it's power to search VFRW.

    by using the Google machine and typing "site:vfrworld.com boobs tires and weed" then you will only get results from this site

    click below for example:

    Metzeler Tire Search


    And that's the first time I've been able to use that link in a way that wasn't meant as a sarcastic attempt to ridicule someone.

    Happy Hunting!

    Thanks so much for verifying what I suspected to be true. My searches for relevant posts have been met with less than stellar results.

    that's because the site doesn't allow Google to index the Insiders Private Forum (shameless plug)

    Haha. I think we should redirect our actual search function to google because it works so much better. I wonder if that's possible.

    I have found that a google search will bring up what I am looking for pretty easily. Searching here is all but hopeless.

    Awesome thanks for posting this! I'd been trying to search for info on mounting a Duc rim to the FVR750 SSSA which always ended up a fruitless venture. Now I can get some fruits...now Im hungry and will go eat some fruits...mmm...heavy syrup.
