I agree 100 percent. Sometimes I read reply's to posts in past andI have been a little set back on how quickly people get their panties in a ruffle.

But when I read those posts again I think its Pride I see most of the time, not the desire to be nasty. I know alot of you guys have spent alot of time developing this site and making it better with ideas, mods, and advice. I can see why your so passionate on your posts and replys because your convicted about how you feel. Just know that no matter how much information you have and how correct it may be that if its not presented correctly it will most likely be rejected.

As for the Trolls.. whom unfortunately are everywhere in life.. I have found they are much like children.. Don't feed into them and they'll quit acting up. Give them an Audience and a show you will have.

Have a blessed day!

P.S. I love this place. Its my new favorite stop everynight when I get home!

Well said Denny you are right on the mark. Civility unfortunately has been lost in much of the modern society. Look at what's going with our elected officials in Washington. Hopefully all our members here will take your observation to heart and we can at least keep this place as pleasant and friendly as we know it can be.

Happy holidays to all and with the new year maybe we can all turn over a new/old leaf and restore what we had.

I am sorry if my earlier comment was confusing. My point was that just as this person made a choice to change his ride from a VN 750 he should respect others choices to modify their rides as desired. This forum is a great place to gain some real and pratical knowledge. I have learned a good portion of what I now know about motorcycles from this one source and I have gained the confidence to do many of the routine maintenance procedures that are part of owning a motorcycle. I want to help this forum to be just the place that the senior members all remember and the place newer members want to be part of. I again apologize if my first posting here offended anyone undeserving.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"

going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

I know I was really surprised when a lot of people beat up on that guy selling his custom bobber with the tractor seat on it and the star on the tank. I think he posted pics 1st on here to show everyone and got some positive reaction if I remember right.

True, but wasn't the mockery kinda prompted more by the poster's attitude in the ad rather than the bike itself? At least that's what I remembered but maybe not I dunno
