When I went to school they taught me to spell "manual". Didn't think that would ever come in handy though.
That's actually the first time I've even known anyone to be proud to suggest that someone else set them on "ignore". There is a word for ppl like that but it slips my mind.
I've noticed on this forum, the most imaginative put down is to suggest someone else is a "noob" or "rookie".
I was just curious then, how exactly does one go about NEVER having been a rookie or noob at anything? Ever? Were some ppl just born knowing it all?
Would anyone out there that does know it all please enlighten us "noob rookies"?
















Manuel called, he wants his SV back.

Yes, we should get that manual. Scott still hasn't fixed the bike yet

there's something ya'll have to remember out racer x, he's old, and he's been doing this for a LONG time, so he's seen all these comments/ideas/wrecks/noobs/etc a hundred times over. he doesn't care what people think of him, so he doesn't put forth the effort to be nice or cordial with randon people online. but he's a good guy, and takes care of his friends. don't think you got the guy figured out when you've never even met him before.

best guess, i filled up four times figure about 110mi per tank. maybe 11,589 now?

I have met him before and he seemed like a cool guy. He used to come across as an but for a good cause. Now he just comes across as an .

I am sure he is still a good guy IRL, but on the boards he comes across as a tool. That to me does not advance the cause of motorcycle safety but in fact hinders it.

Most of us that DO ride a lot probably are too attached to our bikes to sell them. We'll just ride 'em 'till they fall apart goin down the road one day...

Besides, nobody would buy mine for much more than scrap metal $$ but to me it's worth the world.
