And as an internet user, I would expect at least a modicum of understanding that humor is a thing that exists and maybe some restraint if you don't always get the joke. As a fourm user I would expect you to also have thicker skin.As a senior member of this forum I would expect you of all people would appreciate the value of not being a massive fucking dick to people who are obviously beginning to look into joining a community you clearly care quite a bit for (22k posts..)
yes I cracked a joke at your expense in the hopes to get you to think about a different approach to your problem and foster you to ask different questions other than "what do you think about this pile o crap" since those types of posts tend to be counter productive. However, after this little soak your drawers rant I am beginning to think that maybe even therapy wouldn't solve your problems.I'm sure there are probably some really good educational posts that have been hashed out here over the years, and instead of suggesting a link, you insult me??
I think you meant the 50's. By the 70's they were already into superbikes, hairy vaginas, and beating sissy's with a spannerOr are you trying to show me the origins of the culture by acting like one of the flippant kids who'd race from cafe to cafe back in the 70's?
So here is the thing....take a different approach than just shot gunning everything cheap on CL under the delusion that "anything can be a cafe racer" and you know maybe try and ask some questions and try to understand the real nature of the hobby which you are looking to get "back" into. Maybe put some effort into telling people what you want so they can tell you what to look for and where.If so, here's the thing....we were kids then. It was 40 years ago, some of us had to take a break to have careers and families. So when I come back to something I used to love, and am looking into some of the older bikes I used to ride, people like you make me shake my head. Some people never realize that maturity is a common courtesy I suppose.
Please do so. I would suggest Dotheton.com but I doubt they would put up with your crap either. They may be the home for all the "look at how cool my upsidedown bars are" people but even they have standards.I'll find another forum.
I say Good day sir!
