No doubt, each person born into the world, may have fears or concerns at some point in regard to change within their routine. Sometimes, I see it in various website forums or in person face to face. The wise person listens, evaluates, then determines the validity and accuracy of the information. Sometimes however, there is no means to determine if the information is good or not, other than evaluating for yourself, or getting additional info from others that may know if it is fact or fiction. I am sensing a tension from Twin-shocker towards me. Apparently, my own evaluation regarding some of his methods, techniques, and ideas regarding motorcycles differ between us, and possibly others here. Myself, I see these forums as a place to enjoy, learn and have fun. When wrong I am able to say that and move on. By no means am I stating it's my way or the highway and everyone else is wrong. In most cases that would be a fools approach. The recent discussion regarding carb tuning saw differences. Others have their methods and setups that work for them, and that is fine. Some, like Twin-shocker believe that old technology remains superior to new technology based on opinions they post, but no hard data. Twin-shocker has tried a couple times to drag, not only my information regarding a topic I started about footpeg location, but also a topic regarding other frame mods posted by someone else, to this website, rather than speak his mind on those topics. Then today, I see another post from him, and I am not certain if he posted sarcastically to poke fun, or was serious when he mentioned that swapping needles altered the transition off idle in a carb. This differs from his steadfast insistence to change slides or needle jets, so it did catch my eye. I did post a link to the carb manufacturers website tuning page that validated my words and technique, therefore I am unsure if was a jab or praise. Myself, I am willing to read and learn. However, sometimes, experiences, time, or cost prevent the simplistic compliance to accomplish things such as removing a modern carb and installing a 50 year old style carb. As for frame mods, no shame in sharing accurate knowledge, but if others prefer to make mods, unless known to be dangerous, why not share your thoughts and let them be. Being past the topics that sparked differences, there are no ill feelings towards you, your methods or techniques from me. So please, just let it go. I suspect others may have similar thoughts, or have these same ideas towards me. Get it out, and lets move forward and have fun. Life is short, enjoy every moment while you can. To be absolutely, 110% totally clear, this topic and post is not an attack towards Twin-shocker or anyone else, so please do not misread, misinterpret, or read anything more into the words I posted, it is not there.
