Other sportbike forums.. rant

Is it just me or are other sportbike forums not as good and close like this one?
One other forum I belong to it seems that everyone who rides on there are major geeks. I see all of the pics they put up and ask my self if they actually think they look cool. I mean, a group on this other forum, which will remain nameless, put up pics of themselves at Deals Gap. But instead of putting pics of the bikes or rides or things like that, they put up pics of themselves wearing thongs and showing their big bellys hanging over the thongs. I just cant comprehend that. sorry for my rant.

Finally back on 2 wheels

Yeah, I love this forum. The SV forum just seems lame when I try to post over there. I guess it is cause you put so much time into this forum and have become regular, you just don't get the same treatment over at other forums that you are noob in.

I know what forum you speak of. I will send you a pm later giving you more details. I don't really want to discuss it in the open forum.

I've been on a bunch of (nameless) forums and I really haven't found anything that I like as much as TWF. This may be a small forum but I think that only adds to the quality. I'm all about quality, not quantity (well with most things... ). Good call Bird,

Well, I was trying to keep the other forum nameless, but I guess you knew which one I was talking about.

good thread 'bird- Yeah i cant help but log on here, and my wife knows when i do because its the only forum with a BIG RED SCREEN! But i like it that way. It IS more personal and there are enough good natured PW's to keep it light. Good job shan and Todd, i dont know how you did it but this is a very good forum.



ok thats the most cheerleading youre ever gonna get outta me

I have no idea what you're talking about. All of you people suck. Does this bike make me look fast? I wanna put twin turbos on my gixxer and chrome wheels cause that would be ROXOR!!!!! ROFLMAOXGWJEK!



I do think this place a very tight knit family of great people.

Ya there is no other forum like TWF. And with any luck, proper moderator work, and dedication from its members it will remain the best place to post.

There is a reason why we have our own smilie!

I go to a CBR forum to read and post about technical advice. Some posters are very knowledgeable and some ain't. But I don't get personal and post riding experiences like I do on TWF.

TWF is just different. All around different.

Its the personalable and friendly atmosphere that we protect with a iron fist. Its kinda a contridiction in terms, but its the truth.

The best part of that type of forum is that you don't get flamed and you don't get dissed because of what bike you own or ride.

This is my primary forum. I'll post on R6 forums if I have a question, but mostly just to sell stuff. I made a lot posting on a R6 forum so far. There's a lot of how-to's on one forum I like to check out too. I only got 200 and something posts on it.

I had become quit a on a couple other forums. TWF drew me in and excepted me as the I am. Now I cant even remember the last time I posted somewhere else. Emmm, do those other places still exist? Aaa, who cares? Well, a few do. I still check in for specific info from time to time but its all research. I just don't enjoy spending my time in the other places. Just as itgirl said "TWF is home"

I used to post on a couple other forums. But this place feels like home. It's a relatively small group...I feel like I know alot of you guys...even though I've only met R1 face to face.

I post on Gixxer forum from time to time when I need specific info. But there's just too many people over there to know anyone.

Well, I am glad I am not the only one who feels this way then. Just like everyone else, I am always on this forum, even thought I dont as much as other people.
