    What's wrong with this BBS just the way it is?

    There's nothing "wrong" with it the way it is.
    Boyscout merely made a suggestion that would make it even better and more useful, and a bunch of you decided it was a dumb idea.
    Fine.
    Just remember this - Baldy owns this site, but for the most part we inmates run the asylum. As it should be - he doesn't have time to "run" it, nor should he.
    That's why there are moderators - to take that burdon off of him.
    That's also why when the different forums were first proposed, he asked for our input.
    Since I joined this BBS there have been several forums added.
    Not the least of which is the RT forum.
    I initially thought the RT forum was a stupid idea, and went along with it because fish wanted it so badly.
    So badly that he and a couple others campaigned non-stop.
    Do I or anybody who does NOT have an RT consider it a true "Adventure" machine?
    Nope.
    IMO, most RT riders are pussies. Can't let that nasty weather muss their suits. Gotta polish them fairing bolts. :huh
    Ain't an RT in the world than can keep up with me and my "Adventure" buddies if we want to lose it.
    We just haul-ass off on some logging road and it's all buh-byeeee.

    But, being fair-minded, and realizing that having an RT forum on an adventure site would NOT take away MY enjoyment of the site, and would make those pussies who think it's an adventure bike shut the hell up, I didn't say a word.

    Now I'm glad I didn't fight it like you maroons are fighting BS's idea, because the forum is better for letting the RT riders have their own little place. The addition of the personalities has been great, and many of those great personalities wouldn't have ever joined the site.

    Adding a single forum that would help categorize posts for local interest would not in any way effect the site other than making it easier for ALL of us to communicate better. It's not preventing anyone from posting anywhere else, nor preventing anyone from reading those posts.
    But, right now you can look and almost every forum has a post of local interest only, and those posts are getting lost.

    So, have it your way, you buncha crybabies. Shoot down the best idea presented about the forum in a long time, because you're too stubborn and close-minded to think about how useful it could be.

    I don't give a fuck. :mad:

    Jesus.........cRAsH........I only asked..............don't think I asked for the insults or your fuckin' LIFE STORY...................:evil

    My view, for what it's worth, is that the site is fine.............I believe the 'global' aspect is especially useful..............but if the concensus want/need regional forums I'm sure that'll be just as enjoyable...........

    Lighten up.........have a beer.............:1drink

    Geez cRAsH, who pissed in your Wheaties this morning? :huh

    Look, if it means so much to you, I'll change my vote. I'd be willing to give it a go, even though I think it will just add needless complexity.

    Now about your offensive and infantile rant against RT riders....fuck off, you big baby. Can't you debate an issue without getting emotional, uptight, and making generalized attacks on entire groups of riders?

    Like RonB said, "Grow Up".

    It the fault of all those damn foreign-bike riders! And them aliens, too. Shit - will you all just STOP ATTACKING ME??? :moon

    Actually, as I said earlier, a voluntary system of prefacing your posts will allow those to "regionalize" certain local material, while those who don't give a flying fuck don't have to do anything different.

    I gotta add one more comment....

    cRAsH, your attacks against RTs peg you as one of the worst kinds of bigots. Not only are you epitomizing the "BMW Snob" image, but you go so far as to be a BMW GS Snob. What's next? Gonna start railing on anybody who doesn't ride a silver GS with yeller handguards and brown weatherstripping on their windscreens?

    You remind me of a light-skinned black man who hates dark-skinned black men.

    Come on man...straighten up and fly right. You know it's the rider not the bike.

    How big of you. But that's OK. I don't give a fuck anymore. :umph

    Strike a nerve there, old buddy?
    Aw c'mon - you know I'm just having a little fun. :stoned If I really was an RT rider hater, why would I ride with your pussy ass? :evil

    Um.... well, no. :huh
    Debate? You call that run of bullshit a debate?
    BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    That's funny, pal.
