Profiles

Hi Everyone
I've been on this forum for a short while, and some thing has me interested.
There may be a valid reason, but even long term posters seem to be very guarded with their profile's.
I have some light hearted photo's of my self, ( my original avitar was a bit dour looking, so I changed it to some thing a bit comical, in the hope that I might get a few more responce's to my threads).
I allso show my age,and have a few photo's in an album.
I realize that identity theft may be an issue, but it's hard to get a feeling for some one's personality with little to go on. Assuming that part of this forum is to build freindships accross the planet, with people of similar interests, after all you can never have too many freinds, yeah?
Feel free to shed any light on this subject.
Dug

I've filled in most of the profile stuff, but I've never bothered with a photo. Mostly because I don't really have any pics of myself. I'm not camera-friendly.

Just started here, but I filled up what I felt like out of boredom. No pic yet since I'm not big on pics of myself, might put a cat there or something.

curious

DUG,

I've been somewhat curious about some of those same issues. One would think with over 73,000 registered users all with at least one common interest, there would be a bit more camaraderie. Now I fully realize I am not yet a part of the Triumph "family" but I am planning on having a new Trophy in the stable by May of 2014. I also have a cousin in OKC that I am very close to who is a Triumph fanatic. His enthusiasm for the brand is quite contagious. In fact, his influence coupled with my respect for his wisdom has me ready to jump ship from the BMW marque. Seeing as how I have been a BMW loyal since 1977, that is a pretty big deal.

All that said, I have noticed a few things here;

1. Folks don't particularly like the introduction thread requirement and tend to use one word intros. They also don't seem to go back to that section to check and see who has welcomed them. I just don't get that I guess being from Texas where we are a pretty friendly lot, I like to learn as much as possible about the people I associate with wheather it be in person or in cyberspace.

2. Helpful suggestions (at least I hope they are helpful) get completely ignored. I don't know if that is because I am not yet a Triumph owner or what I have suggested has already been tried. Either way, it would at the very least be the courteous thing to do to say, "hey we tried that and it just doesn't work, but thanks anyway." Trimph owner or not, I have been around bikes (and working on them) since 1968 and feel I have accumulated a pretty good knowledge base in my near 400K miles of experience. Not bragging; would just like to help where I can.

3. Some people apparently don't like to have others show concern or be friendly. Sorry about that for those who feel that way; I was raised to have a bit of compassion for my fellow man wheather I personally know them or not.

4. I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of for now.

Y'all have a nice day; (except for those of you who don't like for people you don't know being nice to you -- in that case nevermind )

Talking Human

Hi cruisin
Thanks for your responce, I've come to the conclusion that its just human nature. Some thing that I should have learnt long ago.
Me, I just walk up to anybody and chat, who ever they are, what ever they ride, from 1%er's to geeky little guys, in my mind if your riding you are worth talking to, but that's me, gets me in strife some times, specialy in the citys. Not that I'm dead keen on big towns.
One of the things that ticks me off though is blokes that are one eyed, and the breed of machine they ride is the "only" one worth having. If I had of been born rich instead of good looking, I would have a massive shed chock full of different bikes.
Cheers Doug

I hear ya on that one-eyed thing DUG. Even though I have been loyal to beemers since 1977, I'll pretty much ride with anyone on any bike so long as they ride in a manner that does not put me in harms way. The only requirement otherwise is that they be able to spell BMW.

I'm a member of four forums, and the only one I'm sociable on is the one that's for riders in my state. Nothing against folks from other places, I just don't have the time to put into socializing in the net. I'm here mostly for info, ideas, classifieds, and to find out how to fix stuff. But I'll be polite, and I do appreciate folks like yourself, so please don't mind my silence.
