So far it appears that way! I have noticed through life that folks don't praise a good thing nearly as much as they complain about bad things. I try to compliment whenever possible and complain as little as necessary. I do see value in all these forum posts IF someone is looking for SOLUTIONS and not just to air negative perspectives. Have a great day riding everyone!
I find on a J specific brand/model forum (Kawasaki) that I frequent that there is hardly any bitching or moaning about problems with the bikes, but more on modifications and how to make it better from a functional standpoint. If there is bitching about problems here, they probably exist and then some and it's not just to air negative perspectives. The difference is in the belief system. I find more confirmational bias here as I would with a HD forum. For some reasons J brand riders seem more objective.
