Honesty???

I mean really, I've been honest a good part of my life and it's much harder, Like hard labor that makes you strong and hwealthy to live a long wise life to pass on to others that have the same Intrest.
I've always tryed to be an artest even though I have only a 3rd grade education.
Now to the point...I've never fit in with any groupe or crowed and prefer to have a 1 on 1 with individuals to there's no distractions or escouse to why you havent listen to what i have to say here.

I;ve read many comments and things here and it's very obvious that you are wanting to be part of a cercuse!
Or as some prefer me to say a Zoo!

I'm nobody and don't give a rats Raleigh Mixte if you care or want to bash anything I say,..I'm so proude to know I live on earth with you so I can see what I'm made of?

Welcome RTapz.
There is enough room here for everyone. I know it, because room was made for me.
Do you like to ride?

Many of us have been "honest" a ""good part of our life"".
It's the other part......

Maybe a better first post would be along the lines of:

I have a Raleigh, here's a photo, anyone want to talk about it?

I look forward to your future posts here on bikeforums. I have a feeling you'll be fun to have around. Welcome.

I'm not really sure what that first post is going for, but I'll take a shot. There are a lot of really great people on this forum. There really are. As with the rest of our society, there are also a whole lot of pretty regular "meh" people and some with pretty "meh" or worse values/morals. Have you seen the numerous threads discussing flipping, doing a quality overhaul vs. a wipe-down and mark-up to make some cash, etc? I guess that kinda addresses your post in some way. I'm still working on figuring out that zoo part... Feel free to elaborate on that one.

Welcome to the forum. Sometimes the forums can feel like a circus, but if you get to know the regular posters here you'll find a pretty good group. Feel free to comment on the topics that interest you.
