This site is slow to new posts or responses to threads currently running. Is there not that many that comes here to seek or share info? It takes 15 minutes at some times for threads to get a response. Even some tech Q's threads take a long time. Is there just that many riders and have nothing to contribute towards repairs or upgrades except for a couple of people. I see 1000 members under names,
9995 ask q's and 5 replies. I saw threads go 4 pages and only made up of 5 members like a chat room. Come on guys stop thinking everything said is a flame war and post.
Picking at one another can be fun if done in-personally. I say this because it seems like the only threads that get real attention have heat in them. It doesnít have to be that way. This is a place to talk about everything bikes. Good, Bad, old or new. I refresh my page over and over and nothing changes. Anything can be a topic but it's only enjoyable if it has more than one reply. Did someone spoil this site already to the point everyone is afraid to comment for the fear of what they might be called. Hey Fear no more. I love Forums; I am a member of Forum 39,000+ members strong. They have their differences but all get worked out. These sites are placed here by folks like you and me who have an interest in BIKES, I will not let someone, ANYONE turn me away from what can be a great site by calling me a Sea creature. No pun itended, it really dont bother me. Look at my location under my name, ha!ha! I know where my talents and skills level are. Trust me I am confident in myself. This place can clean it's self up when peeps can tone down the "Fire backs" to a calmer attitude and go on with the discussion in hand, do we really need to carry stuff out for life. Also maybe if we cool out with the profound name calling that might be driving some of the week or meek not to post. As of right now I donít share this site with friends or family because I donít know what vulgar name I might have been called next for pointing out something. My spelling my not be great But trust me, I am far from a moron or an idiot. In most cases I am the last one to need. I am not above learning, and I have a lot of tech I can provide. I have been riding over 25 years. I have owned more bikes then most have seen. I'm not up on all makes and models but I still can contribute more than just Ignorant name calling here and help turn this into a friendly place to rap about our rides, our trips and our woes'. To anyone who I have had a run in with I am sorry. For the most part it has do with you donít know me. In fact if we face to face those moments would have never reached the point they did I guarantee you of that. I donít come off that way in person. I have a good disposition and seem to be liked by many as I am sure most of you guys and gals are. For any of you that feel these forums make good personal chat rooms your way off key. That is the first cause for the firing and profanity that goes out to some one who is supposed to be here for the same interest you are "BIKES" and how fun it can be. Chat rooms are chat rooms. Take that activity back to them that is why we still have AOL! I didnít come her to find out after 36 years of success in life, riding, and my financial stability that I am an idiot by any one of you who may not have liked my point of view. We should all get used to the fact we have a point of view, Good bad or indifferent. So please lets gets some threads running wheather you know anything or not post in them.
ACE come back we had some good times. Really, At least it was entertaining to others; they had something to say then. LOL!
This is not a rant but a rally much needed for this place to see those 1000 members get active and start seeing threads run off the page. It sux to wait that long for a post! Please if you have to call BS just call BS there is even an emoticon for it, but Call BS without making the person feel like jumping from a bridge when doing it. And try to keep the language at a pg-13 at least. I'm am not here to big brother or DAD every one, But It wouldnít take long to have this entire site down to say 20 guys who are here to chat and donít even have bikes. Sorry so long.
Here is a drink on me for everyone, and because it's just a picture even the youngins can have one.lol
This had no intentions to harm or offend anyone, If you feel it did please read again to see the point. It is not a finger at all. I used one Name in the whole thread just to let the guy no I dont care about what went on before, it is history. I never held a grudge. In fact I laughed at some of the stuff he put up about me! Classic. This is not a flame.
Thanks again for reading,.
