ciao again,

I thought again and I think it would be cool to have under GENERAL a dedicated SuperMoto -forum
I think no data is lost, new members would find SM stuff faster, etc.
And I think Supermoto members will increase, and there should be a place to for Husaberg Supermoto.
Does it cost more ? What harm it really would do ?

After the Formula 1 fiasko yesterday, I think too tight rules and no flexibility starts many bad things in this small world....

Ciao

a camel is a racehorse designed by a committee!!!

only joking!

fin, ktmtalk and tt have thousands upon thousands of members and can support different sections with activity on most but the 'exotics' on TT is like a graveyard. not enough happens there. nobody crosses into anoither forum to talk of their bike yam to honda etc-doesn't happen.

this site is too small for that kind of boxing.

ktmtalk is an example of having a section for everything and in the end having nothing. i think it's an awful site. just awful.

how can having a dedicated section make you have more members? you join because you learn something or because you want to give.

we have a very small site and growth is down to 1 or 2 per week. the vast majority of which don't participate at all. if we don't all join in together on the opening screen i can see things going west...

why are SM riders so special they need their own section. do they feel deprived? why are you so different that you have to be treated differently?

i wouldn't mind but those calling loudest contribute the least. simon excepted. which comes first the customer to get the site they want or the site to get the customer? i think that we should see a greater increase in SM posts before we subdivide and if you notice on TT they have usually waited until there was clearly a demand.

they have 20,000 members we have less than 1400.

KTMTalk is not an awful site, Taffy. You are judging pretty quickly. You've had an account there for no more than 2 weeks.

The problem is not too many forums but a software which does not let you select only what you want to see, that's all I have to say.

nick

i have been a member there 2 months today and not two weeks. however i only joined because brett asked me too. otherwise i wouldn't have done so.

i think i answered my 5 posts in one hit. this is where i choose to spend my time supporting this site. as you can tell, i don't believe in dilution but dedication.

can i apologise to three of you for offering that you go forth! this was done after 6 pints of guinness on saturday night and just proves the one about "better they think you're a ...". so sorry about that.

i have checked the results of last sunday weeks enduro again and although i'm now dropped to 3rd i'm contesting the result and hope to be installed in 1st.

i work crazy hours in my job, i work silly hopurs on my bike and yet i still have to cook and clean etc. ok i'm an eccentric but using a 2002 husey 400 i won my second enduro after just 5 years riding dirt.

i'm proud of that and i'm glad i've got something to show for all the effort.

my business is doing poorly and i'm in a tight spot so the bike has become a source of focus way beyond the normal for me. that and personal issues may have made my mouth flow a bit too much.

but i want to keep improving the bike and everyone elses. it's the drive inside me. john macenroe stuff!

regards

This is my favorite site on the net and as of now I don't even have a 'berg. I visit here about 3-4 times a day and lots of time don't have anything of value to add and just sit back and gather knowledge. Some of it useful to other brands and to motorcycles in general and also some is helpful in life.

I cant remember the last time I went to a specific forum except for a search for a particular problem ( btw Jason I could not get the new search thing to work for me but that is probably due to my on lack of computer skills). I don't really think a SM forum would be that helpful but on the other it might not hurt but it would be one more thing Jason has to do and one more place to search for a solution that might only be there and not read by the non sm members.

I am not a SM guy but have chunked knobs off on the pavement and got sparks off my foot pegs on the road but........... I am not sure what you would post that would not have a value to all the members about the part of the bike you are talking about. I mean suspension is a major part of the bike and needs to be set up for the type of riding you do but I think you can take mx, off road, desert ,sm, and trail ridding and find some common information.

I know for a fact that the same thing (engine) that makes a SM bike go is the same for mx and enduro. You still gotta know how to set the valves and tune the carb.

Remember we are a small group. Motorcycle riders are less than 1% of the population and Husaberg riders are a grain of sand in the Sahara.

I have not looked much but I would be willing to bet that there is a SM site that is devoted to that discipline (pun intended). They probably have all the cool info for how to catch fluids and which tires work best in the wet bla bla.

Can't we all just get along and help each other with our bergs and have a place for those who are bergless to come and get a fuzzy feeling?

When I recover I will tell you about the ride. Ill just say that Brendan said when it was all done he had enough and didn't want any BONUS miles. Can that boy eat or what? I think FIVE sandwiches on the trail in one day! Jason you are falling down on your job ...... you should have been there so you could tell a good story mine will never compare to yours.

Ya big berk, it's actually due to something called "preventative maintenance" Taffy!

i know you don't know the meaning of those words individually, let alone together as part of a phrase, so please allow me to explain:

It means doing things like greasing parts of the bike that need it regularly and replacing parts following a "schedule", preferably one that involves servicing and/or replacement prior to the end of their useful lives.

I know this will be really difficult for you to fathom but it does also involve putting your hands in your pockets now and again and buying a part or two.

Perhaps you should catch up a bit and add a plancton to your cerebral inventory......

Cheers,
Simon

you've just gone from BW to FT status simon.

i spend plenty on my bike and ride it even more! i'm out nearly every weekend. there is nothing wrong with my money, my bike or my brain.

and less of the winks coz you're not pulling my leg your pulling my chain. if you were half as bright as you say, you would understand that .45mm between the pin and the dowels is way too much.

as it happens i found out today that there is a factory mod for this problem so what do you have to say to that?

mine not only gets dirty and often, which yours doesn't. what do you call an engine rebuild, a tailpipe, racing cam, rad tested, fuel tank, yokes, downpipes, dyno run, forks tuned, autoclutch, LHRB conversion, lowered subframe, taller seat, brisk plug, various jetting changes, spare BV head, ported and oversize valved SV head, and all in what? 9 months!

that on top of the maintenance of a 3.5 year old bike. that's pretty good by any standards. simon you haven't been there, you haven't even started to go there.

why don't you try riding yours instead of talking about it. the last time i recall, riding dirt had you in a right old 2 and 8-so stop being the very tart i'm laughing at.

stick to talking about your dyno testing and the size of the lump in your leathers!

I am surprised that a bunch of males in their primes can talk about "SM" for 3 pages without even anybody turning this thread into a dirty one.

Congrats. Can I have a newbie forum? I'd like to ask if a starter relay and a starter solenoid are the same thing but I'm scared to ask in the regular forums (fora?)

Pulling your chain? That's such an insult, I haven't even warmed up yet..

You do have my profound sympathies though. The brisk plug chop must have been a real challenge, and very time consuming for you. I've got to say, managing a dyno run must also be quite a major feat along with several jetting changes, I think you should rightly be proud of your efforts. I'm very impressed.

As for your hook & bait, nice try, if a little crude in my opinion.

Cheers,
Simon
