Indeed. Envy fuels so much discontent. People with no social skills tend to be predictably resentful toward those that have them, the same way raging alcoholics often treat sober people with scorn. Same as dirt poor rust belt types who like to hate on educated middle-class people from the East Coast. Same shit, different day.

Nice. I had an '05 ZX-6R...which was my baby but I used it for some track days. What a sweet bike. Thankfully I didn't bin it. Then I picked up an '05 GSX-R 750 for track days but it had a clutch lever that was a really hard squeeze, even with an aftermarket lever. By the end of a day my forearm was bloody sore. Another really sweet bike though. I also had an '02 R1 at the beginning. Low sided on that and as I tumbled in the grass, I saw her flipping and rolling with bits flying off her. That was at Summit Point in WV. To be perfectly honest, I had no business being on that R1. Learned the hard way.

You're a lucky guy. Now you have a new buddy who comes on the forum every 10 minutes to remind us all that we spend too much time here.

I think you know the real answer.
Maybe you didnít notice but this is a forum about motorcycles. I donít give fuck all about cars, and certainly not go carts.
Anyone that has ever rode a motorcycle, knows that everything else pales in comparison, and barely deserves a second glance.
I missed it the first time but I see you do have a sponsor
Might be a good idea for you to take your own advice and devote some posts to bike racing then, which your posts rarely seem to concern, while 22 has done so in a fashion interesting to me for a number of years with his cart racing a sidelight to which no-one that I can recall has previously taken exception. I donít particularly care whether he, I or anyone else makes posts of interest to you. I can happily go without cod psychology from you or about you as well.

Forums are too often treated differently from chatter/banter when physically present. This unfortunately kills the quality of exchange and as a result, the possibility of forging genuine camaraderie that create the possibility of meetings at races and developed friendships.

In this particular situation it prevents the possibility of sharing images with sincerity. What a waste of time and space!
When this forum was a wider one people often met up at motogp races. The two most prolific posters on here back in the mid noughties, one a passionate Rossi fan and the other a passionate Hayden fan who argued constantly on here met up at Laguna Seca 2008 and became great friends.

Roger in fact had the opposite problem. A generous and gregarious man, he put much of his life on open display here and found it being used against him, prompting him to exit precipitately and permanently.

I'm still sad about that. I always got on well with him, sadly some of his friends decided I was also an enemy for reasons I don't know to this day so for fear of having information about my life being used against me I withdrew from Roger too.

I had several low sides and luckily never flew off into space from a high side. Only reason I quit was I had just gotten married and my wife was adamant that I not get hurt anymore. I do miss my R1 though. Still have an 06 GSXR 750 for the track but donít get out as often as Iíd like.
