    Aren't you a clever dick!

    If you're the guru you say you are then why do you just act like a cunt all the time. I notice all of your activities are past tense.

    What you on with at the moment?

    just seen your next post..... come on then and post up some pictures for us.

    Put your money where your overblown mouth is.

    So this stuff happens to you frequently then?? I don't think anyone is jealous and personally I feel really sorry for you. You must lead quite a miserable life judging by your attitude towards others.

    I'm a certified Kawasaki tech and I've spent thousands of hours rebuilding vintage Japanese bikes. I've owned my own shop, worked in 2 volume dealerships and one independent shop. My fabrication skills have adapted as well from building high horsepower hot rods with scratch built frames and suspensions that I designed.

    I've also helped uncountable amounts of people on the internet to correctly build and tune their bikes. Some are easily recognized as lost causes. Some are easily prodded into action.

    This is just another place for people that think they have a clue to get all bent out of shape when somebody with real experience doesn't agree with them. Go back through this thread, find the first personal attack. There's a 100% chance it wasn't me. My attitude is reactive. And it will continue to be.

    I can build a dual overhead cam inline 4 with my eyes closed and my hands tied behind my back. Go fuck yourself if you can't handle the attitude that comes with it. I couldn't care less about your feelings.
    Impressive resume. Can you provide any proof? Point to just one internet post where you've helped anybody build and tune their bikes? Cause you haven't done it here.

    I'd like to see that.

    I've been using an e-cig for a while now. So I guess I'm one too.
