I got banned here for a quote from "The Princess Bride". I'm kind of proud of that in an odd way.

Then !

It was mostly just timing - some others were picking on him for something else, and I happened to post a couple of minutes after a mod had warned the thread, without seeiing it. Still counts!

Doug got into a pissing contest with someone over one riding related thing or another, and mentioned he was leaving.

then he got 3 day banned, I believe.
then he clean fucked off.

I can understand leaving for whatever reason, but why announce it to the world?

What in the hell? I disappeared for a bit too after my crash & it's a whole new world.

What did Mandrex do? I like LPMR and that thread seemed like it would've been a pain in the ass, but it's easy enough to just ignore the e-mails that say "New Post in thread that was a pain in your ass".

Learned a lot here from some of the "vets". Hopefully this doesn't become a trend.

Just wait until riding season opens up for everyone and you start seeing wannabe squids asking about a liter bike as a first bike. and the Ninja 300 is for girls.

Well obviously I'm going to have to pick up the slack & tell them that as long as they respect the power & keep it out of the high revs they'll be fine. It's really an issue of maturity more than anything.

But the most common point of riding failure comes from rider mentality. They can "respect" the power all they want but if they don't know and understand how the power works then that is just as bad as not respecting the power. I don't even feel right saying "respect the power" because there is more to a bike than just power. You have engine power, brake power, cornering power, tire features, geometry of the bike, engine type, riding stance, ego and peer pressure.
