You have offered your help, guidance and place to me personally and many of us Aussies should we ever get to your part of the world, be we there for racing or simply to experience the US and for that, whilst I have not taken it up I am eternally grateful and like many of the Aussies have made similar offers.

Now, I am yet to meet you but have had many dealings with you through this place and personally I have no issues at all believing you to be a genuine, trustworthy individual who does the best they can for the people in their charge. Fuck, some of the old race meet-up stores and threads are still some of the best in this joint. In all of these threads I did not see, read or even have suspicion that people were anything short of appreciative of you and your efforts or that people were in any way unhappy with what you had done for them.

Now to see that you feel that you need to justify (may be an incorrect word there so apologies) the fact that you are a person concerned with assisting others, and not just others but people who are somewhat random to you is a shame as the fact that you put yourself there says more of you than you will ever know.

I take integrity very strongly and know that it hurts when people question it, may be worse than hurts as it cuts one up as you know internally that what you feel is unjust as you know what you did and you know the full story of what you did, so to have it questioned pisses you off.

Now, after my preamble to what I perhaps should have said earlier.

Let it be known that irrespective of what gets said here or anywhere else (and I have not seen anything anywhere else) how you treat people, and how you always offer yourself is well known, well respected, well regarded and well thought of and no matter what banter occurs, it shall remain so.
Similarly for me, no one, particularly me, doubts that Jumkie is both hospitable and genuine, he certainly was going to go out of his way to get me to Laguna Seca one year, but I was too disorganised to take advantage of his offer. He has been a major reason that I have participated in this forum all these years, initially bonding (as far as you can on the internet anyway) over our shared fandom of Nicky Hayden and Casey Stoner and what we believed was the unfairness of the attitudes of some to their 2006 and 2007 world titles. I am sure we would be real life friends if we ever did meet, a planned meeting was subverted by a hurricane which diverted my plane a few years ago.

I have like you been trying to stick to race talk because I can't see any good coming from any involvement from me, as it didn't last time I tried, which actually led to attacks on Jumkie's friends ouside the forum (not from Keshav), and making people angry or defensive is often what provokes them to say things they might not normally say.

Figure that one out. Actually who could. It shows a complete lack of gratitude for something that did not have to be done for him but was out of nothing more than kindness.
Thought you weren't weighing in. Never requested any special sleeping quarters. This is utter horseshit. Again, it was a nice gesture, but it doesn't amount to a get out of jail free card. Jumkie's been a cunt to me ever since Rog left. You guys cherry pick what you want to focus on because your biases direct you that way. And - you weren't there. You only have his word and his word is worth shit. 90% of his bitching and moaning is exaggerated beyond recognition nonsense and the rest is complete fabrication.

I don't care how much you adore him. Doesn't make him some fucking sacred cow whose name cannot be uttered. Get over it.

Simple Kesh ............. than quote those with whom you wish to debate, not those outside it, or better yet, just ignore and move on to race talk

Synn is quite knowledgeable about actual bike racing and capable of good discussion about bike matters, even if his biases are different than yours or mine, and I think genuinely wants to be part of the forum for actual bike racing discussion.

The laughable schoolboy personal insults are just that, laughable, so laugh at the them as I have decided should be my attitude.

You can't expect to specifically call him out and for him not to respond. Are you really so daft?

Truth angers.

I weighed in when you dragged me into your neverending bullshit.

When extremists, pacifists, neutralists, rossi fans, rossi haters, what’s a rossi-ers all come together and agree on ONE THING; That you need to shut the fuck up for a bit;

The problem is NOT WITH THE UNIVERSE. The problem is YOU.

Take the advise, take a little vacation, go ride around on that suzuki of yours. It will be the most constructive thing you have done in this community for a long time. Really.

'Take responsibility for your own actions.' Would you like me to elaborate?

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Its not a deflection at all,your business with Keshav is just that..your business..i'm not getting involved because it's none of my business..you two should take it somewhere else..as for synn i find him quite knowledgable and just wish he would stick to race talk and cut out all the bullshit..but the fact remains few people here call him out yet everybody rightly or wrongly is calling out Keshav...so..since you have took it upon yourself to answer a question i put out there for everybody and insinuate that i'm being childish by asking please tell me why you never call out synn for his trolling? Forget Keshav, this isn't about him..there's more going on on here than just your spat with him however aggrieved you may be..and i'm not saying you haven't got a point...tell me why you and others never tell synn to quit..could it be because it serves your purpose because of his target so you're perfectly happy for him to keep spitting poison?
