  1. Your right the rules make no sense, so why do you continue to play by them?
  2. I needed to get that out of my system! This forums great and so are you guys. I hope there's no hard feelings with regard to any of my previous posts.
  3. BRONCO78, You may kiss my ass for..... "you are a danger to the majority of the motorcycling community,, for your ignorance on the issues as they truly exist.." "I believe you are misguided at best...Possibly much worse" "I believe either you do not understand the very things you post,, or you are intentionally posting them in hopes of confusing others into believing your outrageous opinions." "Your internet persona is both unbelievable, untrustworthy, and in total,, has no credibility" You may very well be the biggest f---ing hypocrite I've ever encountered! You have a lot of nerve to PM me on anything. If the rest on this forum want to put your harassment let them, I sir will not. You seem to have a great problem accepting opinions of others, as just that "OPINIONS". Instead you carry on you childish ramblings as shown in the quotes above. You should see a doctor, I bet your wife and kids hate your guts! I'm sure these insults will be just as acceptable as the ones you've leveled at me.
  4. Performance is not relevant because we are ALL here for performance if YOU aren't buy a horse please. Cut performance and you cut out the reason we do this. If a person feels they can do without the performance they shouldn't be here. The rest of my feelings regarding this matter are summed up on the "loud exhaust and whiners" thread.
  5. You seem to still confuse loud pipes with performance exhaust. While I'm sure there are plenty out there who fancy the "extra noise", I'm not one of them. Extra noise is simply a bi-product of performance exhaust systems. You seem to also think that motorcycles and there use are "good" for nature when it's plainly obvious they are not. With this said there will always be a battle to keep motos away from delicate ecosystems, loud exhaust or not. My message simply stated is "we WILL and HAVE lost areas to ride and this is probably a good thing" but limiting the performance in the areas for which motos or other vehicles have been deemed acceptable is not for me. ps. My message is VERY simply stated I hope those on this thread who get there kick's with smart ass comments about my opinion will read it and realize it's not for FUN?!?! it's simply my position on this matter. Why do you boys feel the need to childishly harass those you disagree with?
  6. I agree that most people can't use the extra power but this has no relevance here. It seems most are willing to embrace these restrictions so they can continue to ride in as many places as possible. I don't believe like this. I believe the places we ride SHOULD be limited, I don't believe the performance of WHAT we ride in the approved areas should be. From what I can tell exhaust restrictions weren't something the motorcycle community invented, just something we're not willing to fight against.
  7. Yes you and anyone else who says we should restrict exhaust flow ARE saying I can't have a faster, higher performance bike. Frankly whether or not a person is smart enough to OPTIMIZE their tuning for peak performance is irrelevant. Since I am busy recycling I thought this one was also in order here........ My standpoint seems to be misunderstood. My opinion is as my Sierra Club comrads in that we think motorvehicle use should be seriously limited for the sake of our environment. On the other side (speed junky) I am a firm believer that as long as these type of engines ARE in use we should have areas to use them for recreation with NO RESTRICTIONS other than safe operation restrictions of course( I wouldn't want injuries resulting from careless riders).
  8. I'm not trying to annoy anyone with excessive noise but performance modifications, at least where the "flow" through the engine is concerned will from what I've seen raise the noise levels in 9 out of 10 cases. I firmly believe that imposing restrictions here is imposing restrictions on performance. Performance IS the main reason we do what we do, I hope I'm correct in this assumption because there are far simpler ways to enjoy the outdoors. With that said restricting performance seems like shooting ourselves in the foot.

  10. Your absolutly correct everyone has got there own "preference" but this isn't a matter of preference it's a matter of gearbox design. You should think of "not" doing it all the time for the sake of your clutch. As far as the gearbox is concerned this is how sequentials were DESIGNED to work.
  11. Indeed very well said I couldn't disagree more. Well maybe I could if I tried harder, but I am making an effort to not be banned from this thread also.
  12. Actually I run a custom pipe with a rebuilt can(less the restricting element), I think it's a little crazy to spend the kind of money required for a (straight through) aftermarket exhaust muffler when the one on the bike can be built to that same standard fairly easily. Increasing the flow of air through the engine is the accepted method of increasing performance(as opposed to cheating as you claim). There are many aftermarket companies who make there living with this fact.

"Troll" seems to be the method of descibing those who have opinions opposing your own.
  13. Performance exhaust is loud, there's no way to change that. Spark arrestors are good though. Those implying that I'm "trolling" obviously haven't read my viewpoints because I have been quite clear as to my feelings on this subject.
  14. I keep a sidearm when backpacking or fishing but this is strictly for survival in the wild from animals that don't know any better than to eat me or my son. If A wild animal catches me while I'm riding it's done something spectacular and it probably deserves a good meal as reward!! I choose to NEVER take up arms against my fellow man, it's only in my best interest to learn what it takes to live at peace with him. Ps. Sorry for recycling this from the"do you pack heat when you ride?" thread, but I have been blocked from posting there. To read any of my other opinions on this subject please see that thread. Thanks.
