    Honda SxS Club, I need your help.

    I need your help in supporting our vendors and their products. I need your help in a way that champions a positive attitude and comradery this club is known for. One that leaves them proud to be part of the Honda SxS Club. One that sends them back to the shop saying "what else can we build?". One that shines so bright other manufacturers take note of and say, "why aren't we building for the Pioneer?".

    One big win for the Pioneer brand was @Torq-Masters. Who had no plans to pursue the Pioneer line until club members spoke up. With a positive outlook, the 500 clan came together and showed support, @Torq-Masters finally sent the yes they were looking for. Now the 500 has a front auto locker.

    This is just one example but many of these came about for the same reasons.
    @jrplaza2008 seen the need for custom graphics.
    Elka and Walker Evens provided the needed suspension updates.
    @Lifetime-Trailmaps provides deep woods navigation.
    STRATOSMICRO provides switch kits for the DIY'er.
    @TurnPro provides turn singles and dual battery kits.
    @jak9922 provides stainless steel brake lines and other 500 mods.
    @Chooglin provides a glove box for the 500 clan.
    jay_man81 promotes off-roading with how-to videos and product reviews.

    Now, we know there are alternatives and DIY projects to almost everything, I'm all for saving our members some money, but please, let's keep these separated. This will also be an expectation from the vendors. So starting now we will be working to ensure all vendor threads stay a positive course and all DIY threads remain centered on the DIY project. It's the right thing to do.

    With your help, we can make The Honda SxS Club a place vendors enjoy and one nonvendors wished they were a part of.

    Thanks
    @Hondasxs

    I would like to publicly apologize if we contributed to the recent GPS thread in any negative, pushy or offensive fashion. We strive to provide the best representation in the offroad community as well as the best trail mapping and offroad navigation experience for our customers and it's tough sometimes to see the misinformation. Again, we appreciate you guys and will continue to make it better everyday!

    I have one thing to add... I think it’s imperative for our vendors to know their clientele. We’re a tight-nit group here on the forum and actively participating in threads outside of pushing product is a must for a positive member response. While I completely understand the cost associated with doing business and the fact that we’re all in it to make a profit. Vendors must recognize that the members here will push a good product for them. Take care of the members and they’ll take care of you. As vendors, if you’re getting a group raising particular concerns or issues with a product. Don’t just ignore it or get pissed off.. Chances are many others have similar thoughts but aren’t voicing their opinions. The negative feedback can be just as much or more of an opportunity to grow your business and feed a different market or to expand your existing client base.

    Every now and then you post something that make me question if you’re a weirdo creeper acting normal or a normal person acting like a weirdo creeper. Nice post Joshua.

    I'm in 100% agreement about buying from our sponsors and vendors as much as possible! My beef comes when you contact them and they will offer discounts to some people but not everyone! I feel that the majority of their sales are stemmed from the owners that buy them and we are the majority as members here!! One vendor in particular really upset me last spring and I've not forgotten it. I'm a third generation small business owner and understand your greatest advertising comes from word of mouth and happy customers with good experiences!

    I agree 100%. That is exactly why we offer basic discounts to ALL of our supporting Facebook groups and Forums alike. Our largest discount is to USMIL (Active and Vet), LE and 1st Responders.

    In other forums, I noticed the vendors participate more and sometimes have their own threads to showcase products and offer discounts.
