Sometimes I find the off handed quips on this forum to be a little irritating. There are several that really bother me, but the worst for me is "buy (I have) a dirt bike if you (I) want ot go off road...." I hate the idea where these folks dismiss the idea of wanting to make your pig handle better in the rough stuff. It as if they expect you to trailer a quiver full of bikes with you on the way to Cape of Good Hope or Tierra del Fuego. It seems to me that these people have no concept about what adv biking is all about (taking your one bike wherever you want to go (in my view)). If so, wrestling with the pig is part of the ride. What is wrong with these folks? Do they think that this is an xCross site? Another that bothers me "the just punch it" advice. Riding a fully loaded bike in a remote area of the planet precludes this style of off roading and sometimes trials style is the only option. So what are you adv forum pet peeves? and am I justified or simply full of it? Maybe this belongs in j0_momma.
