But you just jump in for insults. No one else was insulting.
You don't have to say but for some reason you think you need to post.
Must be a bummer having an IQ that matches the number of inches on a yard stick.
Now that the gloves are off, perhaps a mirror is in order.

No. I mentioned that a few times.

Sorry you misunderstood. I'll be more clear. My reply to you was not an invitiation to join the conversation. All the other posts were meaningful. Your's is a waste of time. I understand that you feel compelled to post something, but I'm afraid this topic is quite above your comprehension. So, just posting insults is a waste of everyones time.
Everyone can only do certain things in life. It's natural that when you can't do what others can, the reaction is to insult it or ridicule it one way or another in an attempt to bring it down to your lower level. But there is another, better solution. That is to find something you are capable of that no one else can do. So- go fo something that will benefit the people on this thread -

Like go rotate the tires on your boat or practice your air guitar.

What is it in this thread, exactly, that you can do that he can not? It certainly isn't sell an overpriced motorcycle. . .

Quite easily I have learned exactly what you say. Can't sell an overpriced motorcycle and can't convince knowledgable people of something that is just wrong.
And THAT is "exactly" what I wanted to find out. And all my posts with everyone inclucing you had been very valuable to me, albeit hard to swallow. He posted one thing - totally useless insult that didn't address the purpose of the post. Am I at him? Yeah, because it was a great thread until he pooped and stunk it up. But he can't help it. I could even understand a humorous insult, but that's not the case.
I thanked you all. It's a great thread of 9 pages of debate and concurances. I hate the result, but facts are facts and I accept them.

In short, I can stay with the topic, debatable or acceptable posts. He can't. His post was an attempt to insult and ridicule someone who calls on the expertise of you all for valid information.

If you want to know if I ever broke topic and insulted anyone here, the answer is yes - but look them up, and ask those guys if I pm'd them immediately afterword and explained the intent was entertainment on an already agressive thread and I didn't mean a word of it. And we traded jeers afterward.

What a fkucing long dissertation . . . holy ......

After following this post and I understand you do good work, I would be hard pressed to avail of your services. My mind may change in time but for now I am set. Take the info you gathered, paint the bike, lower the price or something. I am sure the time you have invested in reading and responding to the posts you could have increased your income by a grand or more. GLWS
