    General Bike Talk
    I have been a member for over 10 years here. I have been around bikes for 20+ years and I have gotten a lot out of this site and hopefully have helped out a few ppl as well. Over the past few years - I have seen the forum change - some for good, some for worse. The comercilisation being one...
  2. Does what racers use influence your buying ?

    General Bike Talk
    Wow...um, that's too long for me to digest...I thought this would be an interesting and related discussion, appears a nerve has been struck. No trolling implied - just wanted clarification on "how things work"...and now its rather clear....Oh and I'm being warned with a ban? I won't even ask why...

    I'll keep my tin foil hat on thanks - they cannot track me, and they are trying! So your telling me that in your 100,000+ posts, that despite being paid various amounts of $$$ or product, from various site sponsors, you have only commented on parts you have personally tested ? My maths aint...
  4. It's that time again

    Anything Goes
    We have "road craft" courses down under - teaches you road positioning, anticipation and better bike control...Lots of small tips in those courses, like not apexing LH corners with gravel verges, rear brake use for better control, brake :"setup" for dodgy situations...etc must be something local...

    Butt hurt ? :wtf Yeah - am crying in my beer over that thread...lol ya :wackodead and buried. A conspiracy ? Umm...what ever. How many people have bought a bike or parts on advice from an author/article in a magazine ? I'm betting almost everyone. Most people are aware that advertsing...

    General Bike Talk
    I bet people actually do this - without even realising it, at least in a similar facet. I 100% guarantee that some of the higher profile members on this board, who have a bit of a "racers" profile, are paid/sponsored/discounted, to talk up certain equipment from certain suppliers. You would...
  8. My turn to whinge at customer service - Racetech

    General Bike Talk
    My first response was a "reply" to order email, so detail was included below my request. I agree that email may have gone to a spam folder, thus the reason i internally messaged from the site later and emailed again Before PMing. As already stated - Communication or lack of was the key...Not...
  9. My turn to whinge at customer service - Racetech

    General Bike Talk
    Well I see this went a bit further - Couple facts to be aired. Yes I ordered exactly what I supposed to - they charged exactly the correct amount, they even charged an extra $10 for the extra "leg" work because it is a K3 model and requires 8 pads for front. I guess extra packing. The wording...

    GSX-R1000 General Forum
    BY chance I was reading an older magazine last night from fast bikes(or superbike) regarding one of their journos commencing a superstock career. Jay bought a 04 model bike and took the motor to be blueprinted - they were allowed to later fuelling, exhaust, normal stuff - not sure on internals...
