Don't be so precious. You are just using a blog as a free advert. It's amusing having someone with two posts telling Der Jagenemeister (with 5,555 thousand posts) how he should reply to your free ad.

IMO you can 'jack a thread, but not an ad. There is no narrative to bespoil. Some humility in your current hobby would be appreciated by all, and it will stand you in good stead in your private and public life as well.

3.8K is over the odds by my reckoning. The seat looks, well, too Trans-Am. It appears to have the OEM shocks. They were pretty crappy the day they left the factory, and are probably worn right out now.

I guess you have to pay the rent, and now walk everywhere. Good luck with the sale.

PS: N.B., A "hack" can be a person slaving away at task for mere shekels in return. Your ad fits that definition like a stiff old carby boot.

ramair311: "New upper end including Wiseco pistons (stock CC) " Wisecos need more clearance to run than OEM pistons. Did you just put them in and hope for the best or think a light hone would let the slip through? How many miles with the Wisecos? Stock CC? Really?

So I gather it's got worn out old OEM shocks? No mention of those. Does the seat suck up water when it rains?

Jag or I have no need to "gang up" to deal with you. I stand on my own two feet, as I see Jag does. And DiamondJ.

I envy your biting wordsmithery. You have got the worst reaction from regulars here, quicker, with the least keystrokes than any other poster. By envy I don't mean funny.

Maybe the street corner with the sign and the minty-fresh Ab-roller is the sales venue for you?

Try putting enough details in a modified bike advert next time. Paying for it even.

"Does the seat suck up water when it rains?" haha lets pick out the important stuff! idiot!
Riding around in summer with a wet butt from a stitched up seat with stinky wet foam that never dries out, is not a small problem. It might be your idea of fun, ain't mine.

?:I do you see any missing fenders that would cause problems with the seat soaking up water ?
No fender on top of the seat to stop rain falling straight onto it in a car park or on the highway in a thunderstorm.

My legal opinion is tell the person and the lawyer to go #$%^ themselves. The person knowingly provided personal contact details on a public forum able to be viewed by virtually anyone on the net. That information could be stored anywhere now. The details are in the public domain and are beyond any reasonable legal measures, or redress. They may (or may not be) on gay dating or pizza recipe sites Worldwide, as we breathe. Them little byties have done jumped the fence. They ain't coming back sonny!

No legal office address or evidence of any legal qualifications on that email that I can see.

It's probably a law student just pissed off and mouthing off.

If he considers his phone privacy is at risk, he'll need to stop, block or request another phone number from his carrier post haste. Get someone to phone the number in question from a public phone, if it works or he answers, it means his action has no merit and it shows no real fear of actions of unknown others. It would prove he's just dicking around, as well.

Dick is, as dick does, does dick.

Take screenshots of his generally abusive postings as a newcomer on a motorcycle blog. It then puts it all into context as normal banter between motorcyclists.

I picked him as jerk on his second post. I'm wrong about a lot of things, but my instincts are never wrong.

I can't seen any legal issues in a person phoning him and politely asking: "What is your problem, c#@%breath?"

That video was like an old folks ride day at The Isle Of Woman TT weak.

This video seems to be ideal subject matter to be accompanied by the rickroll tune.
