Just out of curiosity...why do you read/post in the WI forum?

I have been noticing a LOT of posts from non WI people and I thought it was interesting...usually people typecast WI people as cow tipping fat people, so I wondered what draws you to our forums. I mean, I always giggle when I open the midwest forum, and every other state is empty, but WI always has like 13 people viewing - even in february when we are stuck here with 3' of snow and other states have year-round riding to chat about.

Anywho...thats all....

I think its because on the home page it has a "recent posts" and they can see when someone in wisconsin posts and if they find the subject interesting they read and then ultimately post....the people that post negatively are usually the ones with ultra high post counts because they spend more time here then riding.

I'm not so much concerned with flamers. Those people are just crabby and out to do one thing; post shit. There are always really good comments from people from all over, so I was just curious what drew them here.

I occasionaly post in other forums, only if the topic is good. I always view the "new post" when i'm searching on here (one reason i found this post) Usually I won't because alot of it has to do with local bike activitys, etc. If it's a general bike issue I will post. I think it just encourages further discussion. I think most people automatcially believe if they are not from that area they can't post in that forum. Sometimes it's good to get perspectives from other parts of the country. I think WI and Fl are the two biggest state forums out there.

I lurk here because its the former home of my new ride (I took VTEC_EATER's FZR600 off his hands so he could get the new Ninja), and its much more active than the (totally dead) TN forum.

No negative posting here.

I would imagine its because we have a super active community here.





Oh, and the abundance of ladies might have a little to do with it for some people :neener

Wisconsin is actually has the third most registered motorcycles in the US - behind California and Florida...

Somehow, however, I have a feeling that's not because of SPORTbikes - but whatever tha case - this state seems to be a haven for motorcycles.
