Keeping track of what is happening on LPMCC.net. Most of these graphs are drawn from current data but one or two show characteristics based on a snapshot of data at a particular date.
Data being analysed.
LPMCC.net depends on contributions from a large number of motorcyclists who recall the 1960s, 70s and 80s with fondness. There is always something new and fresh to make you believe it all happened only yesterday!
Charting new , updated and star rated pages since the start of 2007 - use the < button to see earlier data.
Only new content is displayed in this chart; minor corrections and reformatting are not counted. The News Update and Blog pages are changed frequently but only the latest change is included in the chart. Some pages (such as this one) have data inserted automatically and update without being recorded. As well as the pages represented here there are many pages - such as the ex-member lists - that change according to your choice of initial or year.
Only pages in the main menu are included in the above graph.
The website is structured in nine major sections. This chart shows today's proportion of pages in each section.
The pages that were looked at each month indicate the popularity of the sections - and reflect availability of content.
The Mobile section is mainly the version of the Rally Listing specifically simplified for viewing on a mobile device (such as at a rally!)
All of our pages adapt to mobile screen sizes and over half of all views are on phones and tablets.
The Home section contains navigation maps, indices, links and a calendar of events, plus help and documentation subsections.
LPMCC.net hit the World Wide Web in mid 2001. Free counters were added to the website early on and the source of information on website visitors has changed several times. Currently the data is taken from the Google analytics.
This is a graphical representation of the number of separate visits to the website.
Sharp changes occurred as follows:
- February 2011 due to the change from Plusnet to Easily statistics
- November 2018 change to Easily server logs
- June 2020 use of Google Analytics after move to 123Reg server
Monthly Page Views
The number of pages that are looked at each month. This is more realistic than "Hit Counters" that count all the files that are downloaded including photos and data files used inside each page.
[December 2017 actually recorded 163,634 page views, an anomaly not shown above!]

LPMCC.net mentions many friends and fellow rallyists from years ago.
Members by Year
It is amazing that such a high proportion of past members are still in contact and many still motorcycling! All loyal to the club and their friends.
Light Blue indicates members whose names are recalled.
Bright Blue are past members who are in contact.
The graph tails off for three reasons:
- I only know the names of members from the 60s and 70s.
- Many of the members in the late 80s are still members so are not on the graph.
- Motorcycling generally and club recruitment fell during the 90s.
Most visitors to LPMCC.net (typically %) are English speaking, if you count Americans. The pie chart below indicates proportions of non-English languages countries over the most recent 12 months. Data is drawn from Google Analytics 4.

The chart at the top of this page shows the number of pages created and updated every month. To a great extent that depends on the material that is contributed to LPMCC.net. I also keep a tally of the number of files that I update every month. This figure includes all the "back office" work that goes into the website.
I had no real idea how much time was spent on LPMCC.net until I began recording hours at the beginning of 2012. Since July 2022 we've tightened up on time management to identify precisely where the effort is being applied and how effective it is.
I put in the hours but does it pay off? Here is a record of hours per month working on LPMCC.net. Colour of the bars indicates hours per page - light is less productive, dark is more.
There is no correlation between the time I put in and page output. If I can improve my efficiency - I can do more!
The website is subject to automated tests, checklists and random sampling but many errors slip through. We rely upon you to report anything you think is amiss.
The above chart illustrates how we look at our mistakes. They are counted and graded as the first stage of our RIPCORD strategy. Hover your pointer over the spots to see details of affected pages.
I will grudgingly concede to the errors recorded above. You will never make me confess to all the mistakes that I make but correct within 24 hours of them going on-line.
There are counts and statistics throughout the website in their appropriate sections. To help you find them within the pages, here are links to the main statistics.
- Everything new and fresh on the website.
- A count of past members and those who are in contact.
- The number of badges, rallies and rally reports.
- Total photos in the albums of the various galleries.
- List and league table of contributors.
LPMCC.net is not just about quantity: Content is fresh, interesting and unique.
I would strongly agree that LPMCC.net is not just about quantity: Most of it's content is fresh, interesting and unique.
I am more interested in riders' experiences of motos and their comments.
