    K1600 Forum

    How many of you go to this forum? Are all the mods 16 year old girls or just really sensitive girly men? When I bought my GTL did I miss the part where I was to buy a skirt to fit in? Should I have kept my RT so I can ride with men? Can you get strike 3 on another forum?

    Yeah, I agree. You lost me on the original post. I don't get the "girly" comments at all. Rick H.

    That right there would get you banned from K1600 forum. Try it and see. Unless you are a mod then why the name calling as I certainly have not attacked you. Who is the troll?

    Integrity is what you do when no one is looking.

    Jogitu... I know exactly what you are talking about.

    I get on there sometimes and I def see the agendas of a few of the "mods." One of them even sells a "tool" he designed to prevent losing the crank case oil plug in the oil pan when doing oil changes. He knows the oil pan has fingers that prevent the crankcase bolt from being lost and I have seen posts regarding that fact disappear. His tool continues to sell.

    I have found that if I avoid threads started by certain mods then the forum is not so bad. Don't let a few bad apples ruin the whole forum for ya.

    Ok Kevin, now I get what you are saying. I must not be up to date on some modern jargon. Anyway, in some respects I agree with what you are saying and in some I do not. I really dislike it when a thread is started on a subject and in five or six posts later the thread takes an entirely different path. For example, a guy starts a post about a problem he is having with his windshield and a few posts later they start talking about tires or some weird thing. At that point I think it is acceptable for a moderator to "re-direct" the post to the subject of the initial post.

    I disagree in your thoughts about "flaming" a dealer, but perhaps the word flaming is too harsh. I like knowing which dealers are trustworthy and won't take people for a ride no pun intended. A while back a thread was started on another forum about dealer experiences both good and bad. Within a few posts a comment was made that it was NOT a good idea to post negative comments about dealers and that only GOOD comments should be posted about GOOD dealers. This made absolutely no sense to me as this is the type of information that potential customers can use when making a decision to either purchase a product or have it serviced. To the best of my knowledge there is no one barring a dealership from responding to a negative post if they so choose. In fact I like it when a dealer responds to a negative comment to prove their point. After reading both sides of the story I can then make an educated decision regarding the integrity of the dealer and the person that made the post.

    I don't know if any of what I said makes sense or changes your mind at all, but it is how I feel. I believe in openess and the freedom to express your feelings but only if it stays on the subject and doesn't drift off to never-never land.

    Rick

    I don't think it was worth reviving this thread, but as it happened, here is a response:
    No, I don't go to that forum - although I own a K1600.
    Single model/bike forums have too narrow of a focus. People get bored and then they talk about too much stuff other than motorcycles which doesn't belong on a motorcycle forum.

    Never had a problem with them, seems like the normal forum chatter and mods (I really only have conversations w one; RL), no probs, he's very helpful!
    Business comes first, riding comes always. One puts bread on the table, the other eats all the bread. Oh well, I'm riding happy!
