All,
This is a family oriented Site and forum. We at TriumphRat have always advocated a family type atmosphere where all can feel welcome. There is enough garbage out there and it has never been allowed in this , Shawn's site nor this forum. This has been Shawn's direction from the beginning and the moderators have all fully supported his vision.

My personal line in the sand is: If we were all in my Grandmother's home what would I allow and not allow to happen. I have operated this way since Shawn asked me to moderate this forum with his Ok.

This is a forum where children can be present and we would like to see more lady riders feel comfortable here.

I am asking you all to review your Avatars and your language and edit them yourselves or I will edit them for you as I see fit.

And I don't want to hear anything about freedom of speech or censoring. This is a privately owned site and it doesn't apply here.

DaveM and I are on the same page on this. So, as I say, please review your Avatars and change as necessary as anything that looks questionable to either one of us will be deleted.

I don't want to seem harsh on this but that's the way it is.

Thank you for understanding,

Don

I must admit this is the first time I have read this thread but am glad I just did. It is refreshing to be able to get onto a site which deals with motorcycles that doesn't shove crass eye candy into your face or leave you feeling that perhaps public perceptions of motorcyclists as some kind of primaly driven lower order are not far off the mark.

I often check out this forum with my wife and any number of my kids looking over my shoulder - its good not to feel that at any minute I may have to switch windows to protect their virtue. Good stuff.

It kind of reminds me of a BMW forum but with character and style. Almost as much techno speak, but hey we have a looong way to go - but then we ride more than we retune/repair.

It is easy to comprehend and the video link is amusing.

Thank you,

I am new to the forum and appreciate the fact that it is to be kept clean. I have an 8-year old son who is interested in riding and it is also nice for my Wife to look at some of the posts without getting offended.

Thanks for making the expectations clear regarding standards of behaviour and forum protocol. I was a member some years ago but have recently rekindled my enthusiasm for bikes (my wife calls it a mid life crisis...) and I'm looking at buying a Sprint ST having been hooked on the bike now for some years now ever since taking one out for a ride on a Peter Stevens Triumph ride day. I'm looking forward to reading the thoughts and opinions of the members that ride Sprints and any issues that people have experienced...can't be many surely! My first query is regarding the future of the Sprint. There has been little obvious change to the model over the past few years. Is there a radical update being considered for next year? Look forward to some interesting threads!
