It's nice to fit in. I have often found it hard to fit into new places. One of the keys to fit in is to find other like-minded people. Sometimes that's easy to find, sometimes not so easy. The internet made it so easy to get together with others. The huge range of communities are reaching everyone and making them feel less alone. Even when the tastes are out of the mainstream of their physical communities.

One community that has risen to fill a specific niche is metric motorcycle community. They connect motorcycle enthusiasts with each other, sharing tips and tricks of the trade. There are forums for stories, for personal chats, for buying and selling accessories and parts. All sorts of stuff. I browsed some of the posts and found it full of cool advice and tips about tires. I never would have thought that tires came in such different sizes and features.
