So I guess the forum awarded me a trophy for doing 100 posts.

Wow! Now I am a somebody...Lol.

Not so sure this is a reward. Perhaps it's an indictment of someone who can't control their mouth and keyboard. :rolleyes:

Seriously, I appreciate this forum and all of you who contribute.

Sure seems like we have a really good and lively bunch who hang out here.

Thanks fellas and Cheers mates.

Don't strain yourself patting yourself on the back, Hawkerjet.

This is my buddy SoulDaddy on the Aprilia Forum. And he's probably upper mid-pack.

Those guys are seriously hardcore! :cool:

This Duke forum is quite lively, unlike the Aprilia forum I used to frequent. At least the Dorsoduro part of it.

I would post something and there might be 50 looks and zero replies. Not trivial things but often important technical issues.

Occasionally I go back there for a look. I still have posts that have never been answered.

Then there is the KTM 1190 Adventure forum. Unlike this one, there are some really smug and sometimes hostile folks hanging there. I got bruised and bloodied there more than once.

Pretty sure I have found the sweet spot here when it comes to a motorcycle and it's associated forum.

Thanks guys. Ya'll are the bomb!

Cheers.

Yeah. I think it might depend on which bike has the most dedicated following. The Dosoduro was a good bike that never seemed to really catch on. It's a pretty road-race crowd over there. The AF1 guys are super dedicated Aprilia nuts and most of the old-timers there seem likewise. At least in the forums I occasionally peruse, I find them highly knowledgeable with tech-stuff.

And, as with any forum there are always some opinionated a-holes who hide behind the safety of their keyboards. I wouldn't take any of that crap seriously.

I've got a highly modified '01 Falco in my garage that I bought new and dearly love, but hardly ride anymore. I've also got a 390 Duke that's a hoot and a half for these old bones! The Dukes just make everything so "easy!"

Ditto here.

Exactly what I have been saying about my 790 every time I ride it. It's the easiest to ride street bike I have ever owned.

Plus it makes you look good even when you are not. ;)

Not to mention it looks pretty good in a pic too.
