    Convert them to text abbreviations and insert emojis between them.

    Old fashion sarcasm like, "OH? Really? How quaint!" doesn't work on them, either.

    Well, you could offer advice, offer counter-arguments to what you consider poor advice, then move on. You weren't put here to judge people for making different choices than you. Regardless of how bad you consider the choices.
    The cost of a motorcycle is merely a down payment on farkles.

    As I've alluded to in this thread, the vast majority of folks on facebook are not looking for advice. They want justification for their (often poor) choices. Which (again, more often than most want to admit) they get via other like minded folks.

    A.K.A. you can't help someone that refuses to be helped.

    Assuming a choice was actually being made, I agree.

    Considered several parts short of a complete motorcycle in developed countries.
    and a whole bunch of 3rd world countries too from what I hear lately. Straight headers are street legal where?

    I admit, I drifted away too, but only as the number of posts became smaller and smaller and many of the "old guard" (lets face it, folks, we're not "beginners" any more!) disappeared. Facebook appears to have taken BBO's place, but I do miss the forum arrangement, with the various categories of interest and the longer discussions (Like Shack's above). I used to frequent a Delphi forum that used to be a hotspot for local riders that has been ghosted now for over a year. I'd love to see action pick up here, but sadly, don't know if it will ever happen.

    Trials said: "Oh and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find free photo hosting services."
    Yes, when photo bucket started charging for links, it was discouraging. Just today, I realized I needed to find a photo online in order to post it here, while on FB I can link it to the pics on my computer.

    Wanted to take some pictures yesterday at the trial to share :/ but the rain and mud were too much for my camera. Just picture 41 or so motorcycles all slipping and sliding over wet moss covered rocks and logs, riders crashing over the bars, sliding backwards down long steep rock inclines and testing the impact resistance of their riding gear it was a great day!


    I don't do FB
