Ignorant people

Why is it in this forum no one can get a simple question answered? Everyone here is so fucking rude! On every post I have read there is some dumb shit putting someone else down. Someone wants to make there bike look nice.....criticism, some one ask a simple question.....criticism, Someone wants to put speakers on there bike....criticism. People get on these forums for help, not to have listen to all that bullshit.

Would you like some cheese with your whine?

Most people on these forums have taste, so when people do stupid crap they get called on it.

Re: Ignorant people

Because stupid people like doing dumb things to their bikes, we are just trying to save them from looking like fools.

Buy quality parts from reputable retailers and your motorcycle experience will be much more enjoyable.

Buying stuff to make your bike look better is perfectly fine. Buying $18 cheap shit chrome grips, or $13 cheap shit carbon fiber looking levers off ebay is not.

Re: Ignorant people

Well, you have to look at it from the perspective of season'd riders. You also have to appreciate that you need to have a little bit of a thick skin around here

1. If someone comes on here asking how they can do something to their bike that will make it less safe to ride, you are going to catch a bit of criticism for it.

2. The "rudeness" that you are sensing more than likely is coming from a place of concern. We see people do stupid things to bike for the sake of making them "look good", and in the process making the bike less effective at turning/braking/maneuvering/etc (i.e. replacing rubber "grips" with chromed metal tubes, lowering and stretching for the sake of looks and tooling around on the street, and removing braking caliper/rotors etc etc). These machines already require a good bit of skill to ride deftly. Shooting yourself in the foot for the sake if "looks" is typically not well received by the guys who have been around the sport for a while.

3. Yes it is your bike and you are certainly going to do with it what you will, but if this forum isn't quite your cup of tea there are others out there that are more friendly to the type "riding" that you choose to do.

Re: Ignorant people

literally lol'd twice already. TANKS GUYZZ.



honestly, i get disgusted when i see chrome all over bikes, but i understand that for some it's just a style preference (sure, back in the 80's it was tits) and I can appreciate it when tastefully done nonetheless. that said, when you go out of your way, spend your money, spend your time to expunge the functionality of one of your most important control inputs to an already dangerous sport/lifestyle... it's idiotic. then when you ask how to make what WAS perfectly functional functional again, from which YOU removed its functionality, on this forum full of level headed individuals (+/-)... there is only one logical/appropriate response:



anything else can only be taken as a joke, and thus utterly not serious...to this and you, i lol

Re: Ignorant people

Its your bike ... as has been stated you can do as you wish with it .... BUT if you ask for advice and its not what you want to hear , who's fault is that ??!!
Chrome grips are useless , really ... they serve no purpose other than 'blinging' up a bike ... but if you want to make your bike more dangerous go right ahead ... but dont come back whining that you crashed due to them .... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !!!!!!!

Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhwaaaaahhh eberyone on teh internetz boredz is mean




Assume an athletic stance with your feet slightly wider apart than shoulder width. Now give yourself a couple good smacks on top of your head. Hopefully this will dislodge some of the sand from your vagina.
