I'm not goin' down that road again, but I voted to seperate. Let the racers have their forum.
They can all sit around and post about what badasses they are all day long without mindless prattle from us stupid TD people.

Again I ask where shall I post my unintelligent, "slow" remarks about TD's? I want a place where we can talk about TD's without bothering our betters...

Man honestly I can't see where all this is coming from. I don't see folks doing that a lot, and the ones that are doing it only do that every once in a while. Ignore them like trolls or postwhores.

! What did I miss to have all this going on? Was there some "trackday rider bashing thread" I missed? Was some "Racer" beating up a novice group rider somewhere?

Where did this come from?!?!?!

It's in the forum's title/ description, the forum is being used for what it's intended to be used for, leave it alone for crying out loud. If you don't like what a poster is posting, IGNORE it.

And for the record this thread officially sucks and is pretty retarded. My people, we all love the same sport.... are we really that different? Racer, Trackday whatever, etc etc etc is it not about motorcycles? Ha maybe that's the problem, we are all the same hard headed, stubborn and naturally competitive jackasses :-)

Where did this come from?!?!?!
Yes...you missed it Tom. I can tell you first hand when I first started with this whole MH business and track days that the "racers" and "track day" guys, BOTH, had this arrogance about them. They would ridicule us guys that rode teh forest every weekend, those of us that went to pp1..basically it was as if you dont do what we do, you are squids, jackasses and lower than. I think people, somewhere along the line, forget where they come from. I can say that now that I am a track day guy and a few races under my belt, that it doesnt appear to be as bad. That doesn't mean that it isnt still there, it is just that I have a different outlook now.

The racers do it and they don't even know it. Apparently, according to some, I do it too, but don't know it.

It gets tiresome seeing the same questions asked over and over...and the same BS day in and day out. I think that is where us track day guys have to be dilligent in providing the answers that the new guy needs. And I think you do that well. Of course, then the jackass racer jumps in and wants to clown the track day org reps. It is just silly.

But I'll tell you this much...all you CMRA loyalist, stewards of the sport...if it wasn't for us dumbass track day riders with our dumbass questions...there just might not be as big of a local scene as there is today.

Plus your assholeness (my own word) is what drives me. So...thanks. If is wasnt for all you, I'd just be puttin around the track with no direction, goals or measuring stick for progress.

Well, thank that when I asked the same dumbass question that had been asked a million times, that someone helped. But I remember the asswipes. And ill always credit those that helped me along the way. I try to show the same love that was shown to me. , I remember u helping me stunt my 50. I don't forget like that. And you have always been cool in my book. And I also know the stunters that have never said one word to me no matter how many times I have seen them at asi.

ya i choose wisely who to teach and to just kinda off hehe, if i feel that you truly want to learn how to stunt ride im down to help and usually enjoy it...and don't feel bad i've been in the stunt game for 4 years and there's local stunt riders that don't acknowledge what i do

This thread has become exhausting. I know that I am a newb, but I appreciate every scrap of information that I can glean from those that have more experience than me. For those that are smartasses to me, I just take them with a grain of salt and don't let it bother me. I am an expert in certain areas (was a marksmanship instructor in the Marine Corps), and think that it is an honor to pass on knowledge when you have it.

People that help and teach are the reason the majority of us are here and stay here. Let the douche canoes have their forum, that way it is easier for all the whores to find and have a LOT of fun with the assholenesses

This could be a ton of fun for those of us that are truely
I am an old guy, what is a douche canoe? Seriously.
