You don't know me Sticky! You know I thought this site was cool. A place where experienced riders and new riders meet and associate. I would think you guys(and girls) would be supportive of a new person wanting to join and learn to ride. Obviously MOST people on this site are just a bunch of haters who like to talk so shit. Not sure if there are the kind of riders I would want to associate with.

At the risk of starting shit and being accused of being one of the leg humpers, I agree. We like to give each other shit but I don't agree with attacking ANYONE who comes to this site. If you forgot the smilies, edit your post. We ARE a friendly site that supports sportbikers (or wannabe sportbikers).

Such drama. Glad I wasn't wearing a thong (visibly) on my first post.
