I also belong to a few motorcycle forums, some of them for 3% and less type guys, and just to put things in perspective those guys treat each other with more respect than I see here.
Don't get me wrong, I see a lot of good here too, some very happy and helpful people. The sad thing is that one bad post tends to overshadow the five great posts around it. I admit that's a personal issue I need to work on.
There are ways to do things, and ways do disagree that don't jump in to the deep end of disrespect. I am also not perfect, there are posts even on this board that I could have done better. I guess what I need to do is try to focus on the good stuff and blow off the bad.
I do hope to take advantage of the wisdoms available here. I am just getting back in to bicycling and my tech knowledge is decades out of date. Forums like this can be the greatest thing the internet has to offer, even better than porn and streaming video! :0
MAybe if all the good folk just keep being good and ignore the rude people they will get bored and go away.
