I popped back in to see how bad i'd been flamed.
You want some background?
I'm 23. Married 3 years. I'm a design detailer for a Mechanical Contractor in Northern California.
I bought my Triumph in April of this year. Here's a link to my build thread
I'm the president of a local Motorcycle Ministry. Here's a link to our ministry.
I've been on various forums since 2008. this one, Focaljet i've got 5000+ posts and made many many close friends whom i hang with in person regularly. Here's a link to that. I'm Houdini on here.
I can in here with the desire to share something i was excited about. It's an upgrade from what i'm currently wearing. I expected some not to like them, and that's OK. what i didn't expect were the "really?", "wow", "that's Stupid", "you're going to die" type posts.
I've been mostly posting in Cafe Club, Twin's talk, and Twins technical talk. Never have i recieved negetive attitudes like some post here. i posted a thread asking for advice on a mistake i made a few weeks back and no one flamed me there. that's why i thought i could post this. Thank you to those of you who have been kind and given your oppinion while respecting mine. I get that you want me to be safe, but you get more bees with honey than vinegar. I didn't have 250+ for the boots i want so these worked.
To the poster who hopes i crash on some other form of bike....I'm not really sure what to say. i can't believe you would wish ill will on someone else. now maybe you didn't really mean it and it was only for effect, but i don't know you and how would i know that you were being sarcastic?
Next time i decide to share anything other than my bike its self i'll think twice. Thankfully no one that's posted here has posted in the subforums ive mentioned so my respect and view of those people has not been damaged.
What a thread.
