I just feel like putting my two cents in here, which is pretty rare as I'm usually only good for stupid comments.
The fact that you got hit hard for a) not filling out the bio in the first place and b) a first post like that is par for the course here. When in Rome on that, I suppose.
Regarding keeping a low online profile. Not trying to be a jerk toward you, but it didn't take more than 2 minutes (literally) after your first post for me to find out your location and full name so you may want to make some changes.

I have nothing to say about the Seat issue :)

Couple of things....

1) the thing we are most concerned about in the bio is the location. This is a small community and most of us know each other in the real world, and through this forum make a sincere effort to meet other members in the real world. it is because of this it is unlike a lot of other forums and tends to be more like a locker room than a church.

2) You stepped on my nerve several times throughout this entire interaction - First by making your first post a business complaint which is just generally considered a douchebag move, the language of it was extreme and didn't inform anybody as to the measures you were taking to resolve it - it just looked personal, and third your follow up attitude I can best describe as piss poor. Generally we don't use this board for this kind of stuff unless it is a last resort, I have bret's phone number and contact info but I am going to be damned if I am going to pick up a phone for you with the way you came on like a freight train with a hard on out for "revenge". You may think yourself a champion of the consumer but frankly round here I don't see it.

You took a personal issue between a buyer and a vendor and made it public for your own selfish end not because you really wanted to make it right, but because you wanted revenge for feeling like you were screwed. Your first post isn't out there seeking resolution, it was a flat name calling to try and hurt his business. I am sorry if I can't take you seriously after your opening diatribe, regardless of how it worked out for you. If I were Bret I would have told you to stick it up your ass after that first post but I guess that is why I am just a moderator here and not a seller of my own parts.







...and the horse you rode in on.

Don't get me wrong, it isn't your name calling I take issue with. Metophorocally speaking you came into our house and instead of putting your hand out to shake hi you took a shit on the floor. Now you are all self satisfied that someone cleaned it up. Well forgive me if I feel you should have at least some kind of familarity with the house and the people in it before you shit on the floor.

Like a lot of things, he's not going to get it- even after it's explained. His tinfoil chapeaux works both ways.

Forgive me for the ghey quote from a ghey(ish) movie, but it's the first thing that comes to mind reading this horseshit, thanks to Geeto's reference to shitting inside the house (BTW, I owned a dog like that once - shitting inside the house):

"No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around."

The singleminded purpose here may be to promote vintage motorcycle racing (and it is - these guys are as relentless as drug dealers - enablers, all), but it's the tightest knit, most generous group of people I've ever met (in real life or otherwise - military excepted). If any of them lived closer, they'd be on the short list of folks I'd phone to bail me out of jail, even the ones I've never met. I've never dealt with Bret personally, but others here here have, and if they say so, he's a stand-up guy - he's among the very first I'll go looking for when I need fibreglas. End of story. Climb aboard attacking one of our own and face the reception you've forged yourself.




Cynical Judey has nothing more to say.

I get it... Read the last paragraph from my post -> Posted - Aug 12 2010 : 03:22:21 AM

Yes. I have poor manners. I'm offensive. You're upset because I didn't follow the forum's etiquette... I thought this was a place where men talk about motorcycles? My mistake. It's a knitting club. I'll gladly go somewhere else... Where decorum Nazis aren't bashing newcomers to protect their buddies.


Vendors... When you are away from your business for an extended period of time...

Customers appreciate it if you do one or more of the following...

- Record a voice message on your answering machine letting customers know that you are away and, the date that you will return.
- Setup an email Auto-Reply message notifying your customers that you are away and, the date that you will return.
- Put a message on your website notifying your customers that you are away and, the date that you will return.

Any one of those things would have avoided this regrettable exchange completely.

Looks like you guys ran another one off to DO The Ton, where they will make him feel good about himself and all do a big group hug to keep the meanies from Caferacer.net away.

p.s. When I said I liked his bike, I was lying. Everybody knows my stand on 2 strokes. Satan's Spawn.

p.p.s. Judey e-mail me at kenessex at aol dot com. I need your ddres so I can send you headlights and you will owe me 7 beers.

7 beers sounds like a bargain... if I wasn't so sure I already owed you several more (18-20? You could probably hold me accountable for beers owed you by catboy, unlikely as it is you'll ever see him at races again - like Tex, he's a pussy). E-mail coming shortly, virtual comrade/friend/motorcycle racing enabler/pusher.

Ha. I'm just re-reading (and getting a good little laugh from) latest post from FNG... "... Knitting club."... Bret is ours, until he pisses me off.

I can no more knit than I can rebuild a motorcycle engine. My daughter can knit, however, and if I asked her to, she'd teach you. On the other hand, if I asked her to, she'd poke your eyes out with a knitting needle (French peasant women invaded Versailles during their revolution, threatening Louis XIV with their knitting needles, so she'd be in good company). It's called loyalty. I think I like Bret, and I don't think I like you, nor do I think my 3 little Ramones would like you (and really, that's all that matters, no?)

There are other forums out there. Perhaps this ain't the one for you, in spite of your (seemingly) very well assembled stroker. Caferacers may be a misnomer. Perhaps it should be renamed "staythefuckoutposer.com" or "youcantjoinourprivatelittleclubunlessyouhavesomething positivetoadd&haveagoodsenseofhumor.com", or "thisisarealmotorcycleracingsite,notastreetbikewannabesite.com"



Drinking Judey was amused by the knitting club slur, but has a cake to bake, frost, decorate, etc... not to mention home-made baguettes expected by a young birthday boy... plus, Gurl expects to get laid somtime tonight... and since time is limited, has nothing more to say. Relevant cake/bread pics to come in a day or so.
