Just getting ready to ask the same question. Have tried for a few days with no luck. Hope they are not gone. I like to look at this site and Ibmw also.

A few days ago the DNS queries stopped working. (You cannot look up the IP address of the web site from www.i-bmw.com).

It sounds like the domain name came up for renewal and wasn't renewed. The DNS entries would have been removed worldwide within 48 hours. Hard to say if the site is still up and you just can't find it. (Anyone have the IP address?)

There are two typical possibilities.
1. domain payment was overlooked. However, it's been down long enough now for it to have been dealt with.
2. Owner deliberately let the domain expire, not intending to renew it or keep the site up.

#2 seems more likely. Registering a domain name is pretty cheap.

The domain was at least yesterday morning still possible to search on and it came up as valid through 2020.

Seems like it has been shut down by the owner.

Hope it's not gone for good.

Lot's of good information on that site.

Hope the info is not lost for good.

I did notice that many of the old regulars had stopped posting.

I'm glad you started this thread. I was wondering the same thing...? Where did i-BMW go & How is it it just disappeared from the web. I read all the possible reasons & we can surmise all day. It's just strange is all.

I think we have lost a serious history of serious K bike up-keep. Sad. I know politics was creeping in and many dropped off. but it was such a reservoir of knowledge for the K series. You could fix anything by using that site. I've been off my feed for two weeks. I hope the owner will sell it to someone who cares. 22,000 members world wide, many folks are at a loss. I wish I had down loaded many threads to files rather than just kept links. I do have some good stuff printed out but that does not help most. b

Last I heard, admin is working to get the site back up.

No info on why it went down.
