Welcome to Thumpers! This is where we talk about single cylinder adventure bikes. Please use Beasts for all Japanese, Italian or British multiple cylinder topics, Orange Crush for KTM twins, and GSpot for BMW twins. What doesn't fly here? No personal attacks. No spam. No for sale/wanted ads (they belong in the Flea Market). No cross posting threads pointing to Flea Market threads. No vendor posts (they belong in Vendors). No whining about other websites or webmasters. No posting of copyrighted material, such as pointers to pirated factory shop manuals, etc. If you ask for or post links to copyrighted manuals: Obviously your typical garage language gets a pass, but provocative, racist, or similarly offensive language is not permitted here. When in doubt, picture yourself in a room with young/old/male/female gearheads, and act as if you are speaking out loud for all to hear. In other words, show some consideration for others, because no matter who you are, this place isn't all about you. We want to keep all of our interactions CIVIL. If you're here to learn, share your knowledge and experience, teach, and demonstrate with pictorial how to's, you are very welcome! If you're here to bash, piss and be a dick, go play in the basement where you will be greeted by 50,000 savvy inmates who'll dish it right back at you and let the fun begin. If that's your cuppa tea, Jo Momma is the place to be. We believe it is possible to have a civil discussion without resorting to name calling and mocking. If you have nothing positive, constructive or informative to add to the discussion, move on. We will take a zero tolerance for asshat comments in the Thumpers forum. Civility has always been a major guideline in the bike, riding and equipment forums on this site. Let us be clear here, the Mods know bashing, mocking, needless dickery when we see it, we're not going to spell it out for you. Constructive ideas are welcome, negativity and put downs are not. When in doubt, if you have nothing constructive or positive to add to the conversation, move on. (Yes, I've said the same thing 3 times already.. are we making ourselves crystal clear?) We will exclude from Thumpers (or any other forum) those who continue to post in a manner that violates the intent of civility. What does "exclude" really mean? It means you will no longer be able to see this forum. Don't disrupt a thread with personal attacks. If you have a beef with the author, discuss it using Private Messaging (start a Conversation). If you see something that doesn't belong, instead of responding in public, simply click on the Report link in the offending post and we'll handle things from there. In other words, don't feed the trolls. High maintenance inmates get the boot. And let's not forget this one: ALL Mod decisions are final, don't whine about it. Always remember that this place is the sum total of what ALL OF US make of it. No more, no less. So enjoy! Thank you for your attention and cooperation!
