I know Irondude very very well. Yeah he used phrases like 'jap bike' and he bashed guys calling them 'homo apologists' and he pointed out that he was proud to be a white "european american" just as Bubba might be proud to be an "african american" But irondude never never never never never wrote anything rascist. No--the race card was thrown at him to ban him. It was just an excuse to get him off of here after ragging on Honda for cheating, for building a bike with a footpeg that fell off, and another one with valves that didnt work well. Theres a reason TT wont cut and paste - even in an edited version - any so-called 'rascist' remark from Irondude. The reason is that there isnt one. Burned (a huge Honda supporter) has gotten caught-he trumped up charges and banned a guy for his opinions.... Brian has chosen to defend him. Other moderators are not happy about the way this has played out. Theres some TT politics going on. Bottom line is Irondude was critical of Honda, and crossed the line. For that-and that only-he is now banned from TT.
