    Compelled to do what?

    Opinionated? Yeah that is what the Internet is for. It is like a giant bullhorn for assholes. For someone who hates opinions you sure gave us a mouthful of yours.

    You want respect? Pay a hooker to call you daddy. IMHO there is no such thing as respect over the Internet, there is only a stream of written words without easily understood inflection and a bunch of faceless people. In my world respect is something earned in real life, not handed out over a message board and is one ofthe reasons we encourage real life meetups. I have always said, this board gets way funnier once you meet a bunch of us in real life, ESP if that meetup is a pit at mid-o.

    The Internet is an entertainment medium, first and foremost. If you learn something, hey that is a great bonus.

    ben,

    glad you like your new bike. if people post things up to the internet it is gonna get critiqued. whether you know it or not, when you drive your commando somewhere and park it, it is being critiqued by anyone that looks at it....difference there is you probably wouldn't know about it (hear the comments...positive or negative).

    the savage opinions have increased proportionately to the volume of members (you can thank caferacer TV for that). not pulling seniority here (because i haven't been here as long as others.....2004 for me), but i remember when it was a little over 200 people on this board, and i knew 50% of them personally. it was a lot of fun then (still is now), but you want to talk savage.....whew, some of those threads were brutal.

    stay and contribute, or go back to lurking....doesn't matter to me. but anyone who joins here and starts a thread or comments on a thread is giving their opinion. stupidity pays a price at CR.net. internet blowjobs are handed out at DTT,

    cheers,

    DubleR.....you got something on your nose.....
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    I think what bothers me most is all the hype. I'm not complaining about the bikes; photos indicate he's extraordinarily good at what he does. The media worship he receives is puzzling.

    It's just another overpriced chopper to me.

    Stupidity and perceived stupidity both pay a price. Some things are plain stupid, and some things only seem stupid to some people; there's clearly some subjectivity there. That analysis of DTT is appropriate.

    Swagger, you're killing me!
