I think Foo is especially good because most FOOsters are kind, even the ones who try to hide behind a smokey wall of meanness. Yes, you are all good.
Our common link...bikes. Even if some are worth over 10 grand, and some saved from a dumpster, the Foosters don't descriminate. BIG UPs FOR THAT.
In saying that....Roadies Rule and you know it.

There are alot of wonderful personalities on Foo.

Aside from that, I am constantly amazed at how well BF members are informed on such a wide variety of subjects. For the most part, most contributors here don't talk above their head.

In talking to my "real world" friends I come across as well informed due to my BF's reading digest.

BTW, the above is truly spoken.

I avoided foo for a long time - thinking it was just where all the silly stupid games were played by people who had no lives and that the 'real' people were in places like the road forum etc etc how utterly wrong i turned out to be...foo is probably the most down to earth 'real' place on BF!!!!
