Then, why don't you entertain us? Are you one of those chronic whiners who always expect someone else to entertain YOU?

I don't check in to this forum for entertainment purposes, I use it for informational purposes. The guys on this forum have 10x the useful information than most all dealerships I have bought from. Entertainment would be dropping off a 10ft cliff to a downhill landing and having to stop before you reach the next cliff line - -That's entertainment :) --- Sometimes I run into an entertaining thread - that is just a bonus!

Yeah, what's so boring about this forum anyway? If they start playing that metal milicia crap while I browse this forum, I will not only be bored, I'll be angry enough to put on a Wayne Newton CD! Now, that's entertainment!

What you do not know is that fluke has the obligation to come here and read all the post. I don't have a mind as great as his so I'm completely satisfied by this forum even if I come each day. How do I register here???

I thing I'm now registered :) Yes the same thing repeat but people change, new comes here and they want the more personnal contact of direct answer instead of searching on a database. A repeated topic is better than no topic no? If we remove the topic alread discussed here, we won't have a lot of stuff to read...

I agree Robin.Sometimes it is better to get a real answer to your own question rather than searching an archive for it. Also lots of things can change in a year or two, especially in the world of off-road motorcycles.Certain products are dicontinued,new products come to market,new members join the forum and new ideas and experiences come to light.The same question asked a year from now could garner vastly different responses.

Thanks guys, It seems that when some people feel threatened, they shoot at anything they can. May be my english is not perfect but some have their attitude not better than that. My english will improve over time, will it be the case for your attitude justin time?

Subsequent to this collection of prodigious pontification I feel I must purport a more efficacious diatribe. This is an excellent site, with experienced resources that i feel are unequalled anywhere on the web. Inexperienced owners may post inquiries that appear mundane to the elite enthusiast; thats why they have come here. To eschew thier pleadings is reprehensible. Let's get back to thrashing, be cool dudes. :)

Robin you have a point. People should be free to ask questions. But I think it's the vague or really newbie type questions that shy people away from answering them. "What should my jetting be" or "which pipe is best" . Without adding any additional information, the questions can't be answered.

I think a building an FAQ section would help newbie's get up to speed quickly or rather be able to ask more intelligent questions if the FAQ can't answer it. And I'm sure there will be a lot of times the FAQ just can't help in a particilar odd or newly found problem.

Sometimes folks say to search the archives because truly there is great info contained within; they're actually doing them a favor in case they don't know to search.

And Robin, your English is great, much better than a few nameless and unregistered folks on this site :)

yep

it would be lovely to see a well layed out FAQ arena that hit you when you clicked on, secondly the registration button needs to be clearer.

90% of questions are still interesting-it's the 10% that do us all.
