I don't know what you said, but I don't think youth has anything to do with it. CEH is how old? ...he doesn't seem to have anything stuck in his ass.




Yes, I used to listen to Racer X like he was a preacher... and while I still strongly promote responsible motorcycling, I try to not be a nazi about it. We're all adults, there's no reason to patronize anybody like that.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!!!!! Can't we all just get along???? Of course this seems to be a regular thing on here. Go for a few months without any serious flames then a few days of straight flaming threads. It's only going to get worse once the riding season is over for most people.

OH JOY!!!!!! :twofinger

I actually do ride my motorcycle most of the time, so I don't spend a great deal of time on this board (and maybe that's a good thing), so I couldn't tell you if RacerX and Firefighter81 used to "own this board" or not....I'll take your word for it.

From what I've read, maybe RacerX and Firefighter's message delivery on what type of bikes are best as starters set off the spark. It's one thing to offer advice, quite another to demean someone if they choose not to follow that advice. There's also the perception that both individuals are using their MSF status to further their own agendas. Eventually, people got tired of the "holier than thou" attitude and began to voice their frustrations, IMO.

I think what's happening on this board is the influx of "new blood" and that brings new ideas about motorcycles. Unfortunately, RacerX and Firefighter seem to be inflexible on some topics and those beliefs bring them into direct conflict with some of the new ideas/methods being brought up.

Who knows....maybe it will die down eventually; folks will realize they CAN choose NOT to follow RacerX and Firefighter's advice; and RacerX and Firefighter will realize that not everyone's going to follow their advice, and not to take it personally.

Just my buck fitty....

...and yes, you can have your karma back....

I'n no nazi, but I do agree with most of the things RacerX says.

If you don't agree with it...just don't do it. If it gets too annoying, there's an ignore feature.

That's the way every message board is... it's as natural as it gets on the internet. Give it a day or two, things will blow over and everything will be back to normal. Hopefully without any knee-jerk reactions from the moderators and admin.

Actually, what happened today was that I got tired of Racer X's shit and exploded at him... at about that point lines were drawn and other people joined in on the fun.

Age has everything to do with it.

There was a huge surge of young punks that came on this board this summer with know it all atitudes that bought way more bike than they needed for a first bike.

RacerX and Firefighter said so and the know it all gets mad about it and does the young punk thing(Rebel with out a cause).

This is where all the hatred towards them is coming from.All there trying to do is to open some eyes before someone else dies.

Point being

Most are to young to understand this and won't untill they're in there 30's.All they will have to bring to the table is a smartass reply because they know it all.

WE ARE NOT ALL ADULTS HERE.Some may think so but just because one is old enough to vote,it does not mean that they have it figured out.

Well not every board..maybe a majority but of the 5 or 6 forums i visit this is the only one that constantly has this bickering. It's a natural progression for this site. I'll probably do what I did before..leave the site for a few months, let it all calm down then come back. Or not... :twofinger

I don't think age has anything to do with it, and I'm not saying that because I'm relatively young. How old is Firefighter? How old is CEH? How old am I?

Their attitudes should have been directed only towards those "young punks" or perhaps not even shown to anybody at all. Their attitudes spilled over to some of the more respectable and knowledgeable members of the board and it's getting really old.

No matter how well intentioned they are, the condescending tone, particularly Racer X's, has got to stop. You, nor I, am in the position to determin whether or not somebody who is 18 or older is a responsible adult when we're communicating through an internet message board. Even if they aren't, do you think that by telling them that they're young and wrong is actually going to get your point across?

My hatred comes from seeing one too many possibly well intentioned, but ignorant newer riders come to this board only to get flamed an insulted for no good reason simply because it is their understanding that they should start with a 600 or greater. I get tired of either of them telling people that they can't be as good as them because they aren't an uber track star. I get tired of either of them spouting their bullshit opinion on what makes for a good rider, and that somehow if they don't do what they do they're somehow not as good.
