Get A load of the whinner or wenner

I don't ride half as much as some of these people but I love it when I do. I think that one time I DO go, weather it's 2 weeks or 2 days, makes it all worth while nonetheless!!
Since when was money an option anyways?
If it's a passion..DO IT TILL YA DROP!!!!!

My wife and I together make decent money but we sure don't live in a huge house driving expensive new cars to work either.
It's easy to see how someone could get frustrated with the high costs in this sport.

It is bull crap in my opinion that someone start complaining of the cost of something after the fact.

Not fly fishing, those rods are $$$$.
Not as bad as MX though!
Right now, for me, being "broke" has nothing to
do with $$$$, and all to do with healing up!
I'd much rather have it the other way around and be RIDING!

To me, money isn't the focal point for me to want to love this sport. I love it cuz it's something I crave and hunger for more and more.
When you crave something that much, you just don't sweat the small sheet!

Thats a good point though Fly-N
Another one is why do you have to spend on the lastest and greatest to enjoy something. Even at the amature levels of racing you dont need to go and spend 400 bucks on an air box, or 600 bucks on suspension. Geez its moderation, use the imaginatin, fogure it out and make it work with what you got. Ya go broke becouse you think, If Only I by this I will be as fast as....
It dont work that way...

Let's call a spade a spade! All those Wendy Whiners are really just pissed that they are RIDING RED. I guess we all can't have BLUE BLOOD.
Those poor cretins!!!

I normally don't even pay attentiion to the other boards but I followed your link to the thread. I could not help but reply. I cannot for the life of me figure out what would make a man whine like that. He has a neat scoot, a wife that enjoys riding and a means to pay for his hobby. If you don't want to pay don't ride. It is plain and simple. .
I really enjoyed your reply and the other replies on this thread. You guys make riding fun

My bike is so stock it looks plain.
My budget is $100 per month for anything that is bike related (insurance and license fees are covered out of the general budget).
I spend money on maintenance items mostly and ride all over the desert for free.

Anyway EGO I emptied both barrels into him.

When you guys set up your lives, you must think about what it is you want your life to do, and structure it accordingly. I did it. You can too. I figured this all out on my own too, as I have not a single college credit to my name, and still make over a 100k per year. I carry no debt, have perfect credit, and was out of work for a year, because I wouldnt take a job that wouldnt satisfy my needs, financially or otherwise. I didnt settle, no one should. Sometimes **** happens, sometimes you gotta make it happen.
