Talking Just a Thought

Anyone ever consider changing this forum to just a "Luxury M/C Touring Site” I can see it now. Beyond the instant increase in membership and opinions, can't you just see the group gatherings? We all go to our chosen corners. We have the Beemers, the Wingers, the HD's and the Undecided. The band kicks in and the rumble begins:

Yes I see it all so clearly

Scantly leather clad women hitting the dance floor, scantly clad men who you wish were not on the dance floor. In the parking lot there’s discussion of what a real motorcycle looks like. The stylish and not so stylish are talking about co-efficiencies of leather, versus textile, versus flesh on asphalt. The clannish wingers are arguing on what stuffed animal looks best on the trunk rack? A group of Beemer’s are in an intellectual discussion with a group of HD’s on what is harder to change: the transmission oil in a beemer or a bad tattoo. I hear someone ask: think we can get a group buy on m/c insurance. Over in one of the corners there is a major in-depth discussion of why would anyone want to ride a 1000-mile day when a ride to the local coffee shop is just as enticing? And yes we have an agreement among us! Finally something we all can agree on, why are all the cagers trying to run my bu# off the road! But that was fleeting because someone asked about oil again and all hell breaks out. By the next morning we are all telling those that missed it they missed the party of the year. Within days one of the forum moderator’s states that do-rags and high tech underwear are sold out but they still have tee-shirts in size XXS but find no takers

Now that’s a party I would love to see.

Just a thought!

Re: Just a Thought

That sounds like what happens every time I get together with the group I ride with.

Here is an example of a forum that has different makes and how they do it.

You have to grow up to have a mid-life crisis!!!!!

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.

Re: Just a Thought

I would also like to see the color scheme on this forum change to orange and black...

I sure hope the Mods. read this post and begin the changes...
It would be great if we were all lemmings. Or sheeple. Or Democrats.

Re: Just a Thought

Think it's a fabulous idea. Not sure the mods would go for the increased workload though

Yeah! More sheeple living by the seat of their emotions....
