Re: Is the site healthy?

doesn't need to be split there are not enough daily posts yet

the colours for different stuff are a nice idea. I can usually tell whats in a thread by reading the title . if it was a concern all you have to do is write the bike year in the title of the thread.

I bet no one can be bothered though and then there are allways things that are common to both... for some basic stuff a crank is a crank and a fork is a fork.

Re: Is the site healthy?

here! here!

I'd like to see in a years time where all the fancy pants LDC boys are....still changing sprockets and asking questions like: 'does my bum look big in this'!

the site was nothing without lineaweavers input at the beginning. he MADE the site. I'd like to think I have more than added to his work indeed to have taken over where he left off but until I get onto the new bike I can't see anyone being GENEROUS enough with their info, mindful enough to share there opinion, or hard working enough to find out instead of bloodywell talking all day.

we tried separating the issues and the subjects became a nightmare to control. not only that but exactly as bushie says, if you know forks you know any forks and can help even if you haven't got an LDC. but can you tell them that? no! they spend all their lives doubting the genuine people and then ask you if they should buy this go-faster square wheel that is all the rage! i mean WTFiH are they like?

"if i bore out my bike by 1mm will i have to rejet the bike?'.

regards

Re: Is the site healthy?

I know you are smorgy but it's only an asset when it's worth something by way of money saving/deep knowledge and experience/took a huge effort!

I've yet to see anything like that here for the new bike.

I'd have to disagree Taffy, its been said in this topic countless times that the new gen bikes are more reliable so if it aint brike don't fix it. Search my posts and then see if there has been no one generous enough to share their experiences or opinions. Sure I'm no mechanic but I still offer up the little I know or have experienced. I feel offeneded that you can disgorge this tripe without even getting your facts straight, sure you went above and beyond to help me out when I rejetted my 550 with one of your kits, but now you are just making a wanker out of yourself and I'm starting to find myself lose my respect for you. These new bikes are YOUR future so go ahead and piss all the fancy pants LDC boys off and then see what you get. Dont know what sort of bug crawled up your arse but lighten up....

Re: Is the site healthy?

Been called a lot of things in my time but never a "Fancy Pants". I'm a "Tracky Dack" man Sometimes the wife wont even go for a coffee with me cause my Trackies are so daggy. Taffy must have been talking about berglsmerg , bloody Queenslanders Taffy, I know where your coming from mate there all Fancy Pants up there.

I try and help on Electrics where I can, I don't understand suspension but certainly appreciate everything people contribute. Hoping to hook up with Steve so he can teach me. Can't wait to meet him and ask, "Does my bum look big in this"

Re: Is the site healthy?

Oh, everyone relax. Taffy is just doing his UHE duty and stirring the pot with his eloquent "Taffiness". No one does it better!

Yeah, we miss Dale. He was a true force in the same sense that Husabergs original motto, "4-stroke force" was (we'll miss you Husaberg, you big fat sellout machine, wait, that's another post).

I think Schwim has spoken again. He only has so much time. Though, we can request, he has a family, and needs to feed them. I've been trying to set up a VOIP asterisk server at home, and I still can't get it working. Been working on it for weeks now. Couple hours here, couple there. There simply isn't the time to get it all right and working. I can imagine that the UHE is not much different.

I don't read enough posts these days, but I still love the banter that goes on when I do. Who cares about the "fancy pants" folks. I'm jealous, frankly. I want one. I've gotten to the point in my life where I'd just like to ride. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE working on stuff. But, it's be nice to have the primary bike just work everytime I toss my aging legs over her (yeah, I'm only 32).

In the end, it does make sense to just leave it all the way it is. People come and go. The site will keep going though (as long as we pay our dues ) I still stand behind wanting the old section, though. Jason has said it's a ton of work to bring it back, though he still has everything backed up. If anyone out there knows a thing or two, he'd love to toss the bag of garbage over the wall to see if you could help. Man, there was so much there.

Crap, I'm rambling again. Sorry.

Parsko out.

Easy davo ! I'm a flannie wearing, grog swilling, dirt roosting, rod burning, bike breaking, hayseed. The fanciest my pants get are my work ones coz they've got reflective stripes.

I think the point that taffy is trying to make ( I'm positive that I will be corrected if I'm wrong) is that the owners of 1st and 2nd gen bikes did the hard yards and us fancy pants LDC riders are riding on their coat tails so to speak, yes we dont have to constantly fettle our machines and yes, depending on your point of view, a new breed of idiot (sound familiar taffy) has become part of UHE but thats how the cookie crumbles. I was just riled up by the sweeping generalization that was made and I will call a spade a spade just like you taffy.

Someone once said variety is the spice of life and we have it right here, the bickering and cheap shots dont help though

We can abbreviate your new name to MCRP

My apologies to you MCRP, that I like a yack.
P.S. I'm still on standard Sprockets both back and front
