    The Ignore function works quite nicely. It is something that I was glad to discover.
    You can always peek if you choose to do so, but then you just rememeber why you chose Ignore in the first place.

    I joined the site many years ago. I was quite active then and I moved away to more bike specific forums. I also felt us no longer a beginner. Now that I have been riding many years and many bikes so I feel I have more to contribute. So I am back

    Good to see you are vertical and still at it
    Careful what you contribute, some are apparently very easily offended.

    With about 6 active posters or less over the span of a month that ignore list must be getting a real workout

    You don't have to do facebook, you can still click the link and read the posts.

    So far, only the BBO crew has responded in a responsible manner. I'm actually upset that the low information members of the FB group are avoiding it. Maybe I need to switch gears and post a LSPL discussion instead?

    Was that suppose to be LPSL ?

    Whatever you do don't tell them they shouldn't remove the exhaust systems off their brand new motorcycle or they will call you a ******* tree hugger.

    I think the facebook group needs to be renamed "Guess what liter+ motorcycle I'm learning on?"

    The mission is dead. The few voices of reason are the silent minority. I just don't see much in the way of speaking out, far more atta-boys and way2go's from the lowest common denominator that is facebook. It's not even a hint of what this site or our predecessor site used to be about.

    What, you disagree that a $20,000, 650 pound bike with a 1200cc+ engine is a bad idea for a beginner? If they don't buy that how can they be one of the cool kids?
