Just wanted to say "thanks"

Well I've only been here a short while and just wanted to say thank you to all the core members here (new ones too).

Why a "thanks?" Well here's why...well the common bond for one, I know she is old, fat and a little slow but so am I. :-)

Also the politeness on this board for the most part, I'm on a few forums one of them a local board where insults and mockery of newb questions about your bike are so common place I rarely visit there any more.

The last time I posted about mods for the bike all I got was "why waste your time with a relic?" comments, made me wish I could reach through the computer.

So that being said I don't frequent there much. The folks here are pretty helpful and courteous and without insults and hash slinging.

So a big shout out to the "family" here and thanks for being a damn good site for info and
being somewhat drama free.

Lord knows we all have enough drama in our lives...

That was the example I tried to set years ago when this site was just getting started.
Everybody has questions when starting out or getting new bike.
There's no need to belittle a person if they are simply trying to learn.
It's good to see that it has attracted others with the same attitude.

I was a newb once.....and it sucked to when the cyber bullies pointed out the fact that, yeah some of the questions are stupid....but I didn't know.

The RC is not a relic but a classic


There is a nice mix here that works well.

There's a saying, nobody: "Where ignorance predominates, it invariably asserts itself"
And that's precisely what that statement exemplifies. There's a Goldwing forum that I seldom frequent (not even a member) where the "knowledgeable" members go out fo their way to intimidate and embarrass newcomers that just want to learn or are in need of help/clarification. Thankfully my home forum (GWOF) is more level headed, and we apply a similar ethic to what goes on here and it is very repsectful. I know bikes as a long time rider and big time enthusiast, but my shop skills are, em, well they freakin suck! Never has anyone here ever called me stupid (although I'm sure they may have thought it more than once). But I tackle and I learn, sometimes at extra expense, but the next time well, maybe not. Those that choose to belittle rather than assist are just so much dog excrement on my boot heel to be scraped off on the gutter edge. Of course there's the more physical side of a mawashi-geri that is sometimes a more appropriate method but that's rather violent so I leave that untouched.
There's a difference in setting down sound advice in a manner that teaches compared to telling somebody off with the same information. Hat's off to the highly skilled and well seasoned veteran wrenches that abound here and help us fumbling sorts.
Thanks for stating your point so well nobody; couldn't have done it better myself.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

A very well made point and thank you for saying it. I'm a complete idiot when it comes to maintenance of the bike. Sometimes I already know the answer, but it's nice to get clarification from someone who really knows what they're doing. Cuts down on time wasted! I also think it says a lot about the types of riders our bikes attract. We're a discerning bunch and ride our bikes for the sake of riding. Not riding for the sake of trying to show off like so many sport bike riders over here do. I do miss chatting with my riding brothers back in England. Bunch of crazy bastards over there. All riders over there are. But I thoroughly enjoy my time spent chatting on this site.
