The search function for BFs yields mixed results. I actually have greater success searching BFs using google or bing. So I encourage posters do a search but I realize that they will often not find what they are looking for.
The touring forum thread only has 5 replies and is dead. Yes they tried to help the OP and did note that their size 13 and 14 feet did not overlap their LHT. Thing is, I suspect they have a much larger size frame which makes a big difference. Yes they did address best they could ONE aspect of the OP.
The 50+ thread gave a much greater wealth of information for the OP with many alternate considerations.
It would have been sad if the mods moved the 50+ thread to touring and the OP missed out on the 26 replies from here. Is that not sufficient to complain about the recent moving of 50+ threads to other forums?
Did you also note that the thread the OP updated to, was the 50+ thread?
I did originally think you were downing the Touring thread, that they'd offered no assistance. I'm not really interested in debating a critical evaluation of both threads. I think both offerred assistance to the OP. Had I been him, I'd have stuck with the 50+ thread, too, to continue my part of the dialogue.
I'm never happy about moving threads if the issue is not cut and dried, and in 50+ it rarely if ever is. But I've been in these battles a few times over my years here, and the Modular Motivation to Adjust will not go away, and neither will human nature. I'm interested in fighting to get a better perch for my butt, not in maintaining my vision of how 50+ should be. It's only MY vision, after all, and I don't own 50+ or BF. The Head Mod at least is employed by the owner of 50+. You can fight City Hall, but sometimes it ain't worth it.
