I forgot to vote. I vote "no", as it violates the current organizational theory of the site.

But you guys keep posting. It is making a good read. Haven't had one of these for a while.

Gosh, what a thread... Been offline for two weeks (holidays) and enjoyed
my FS a lot! Never expected a simple question could cause an earthquake...

I'm tired of joining this discussion/clash (may be I got the thread wrong and
it's all coruscating humor)...

Taffy, you're a disputatious and at the same time humorous guy but as this
is an international site (I'm sure you agree) there is a good chance not
everyone understands the specific British sense of humor.

General remarks:
- All Husaberg riders/owners should share their experiences, tips & tricks
(that's what happened on UHE)
- IMHO no one here should blame another for the type of Berg he/she owns and rides
(everyone to his taste, accepted by everyone)

Supermoto remarks:
- Many SM riders (or Sado Masochists if you prefer) are also MX riders/racers
(and vice versa)
- Sometimes SM riders get dirty:

It's OK Brian, Taffy is right about the fact that tuning stuff is being done right now.

It's just that he hasn't been around for long enough on this forum to know that we already did all this "tuning" stuff about 4 or more years ago and that many of the Husaberg engine updates are in fact based upon those experiences. Bless.

I still vote for the "Husaberg S&M do-it-yourself ahead of time engine test and development area"

Taffy you forgot to eat your scones my friend. The subject is "do we want a new forum", not "let's bash the French". There are entire Web sites on the subject, although most have gone AWOL now.

Now that some of the dust has settled and perhaps Taffy has been able to save up a few pounds to refill his medication .i figured i could offer a few reasons for a seperate supermoto forum. there of course are definate similarities between a fe,fc and a sm.but much of the difference is the riding style ,riding terrain,and speeds that make someone who is into motards not perhaps into trail riding or mx.example,posts about horsepower and exhaust pipes dont get my pulse up as i cant even push my 400 as hard as it is able and neither can most of us for that matter so why do i want to talk about it sm,horsepower is very important so extracting every bit possible is relevant.or here is another example,do you think the SM racer has any real interest in proper suspension set up for the trail rider.or which knobby works best in the sand,and how about this getting a trail rider attention-"is there any race slicks that will make it thru the weekend"?differences are numerous regarding safety gear as Taffy likes to point out.he obviously is attracted to men in leather and is acting out aggressively against them so as to stymee his repressed feelings.another thing i noticed about sm bikes is they have little smooth tires and are ridden very fast on relatively smooth tar.this is just so different than what dirt guys do and it is getting very popular and Husaberg has some real good bikes offered for SM so why not welcome it as it is ,"a new frontier of motorsports".lets perpetuate the movemnt and as we do it will grow more and there will be a lot more SM input and particapation on this will see!dan.

and the <blank> has it...

hey all,

In the hopes that the crew would come to a unanimous decision(what, it could happen!), I left the thread alone, but after a month, everybody seems to be holding their ground, so here's the tie breaker:

Go to the top of any page in this thread, and you'll see a poll. Vote. The people with the most votes get what they want.

OK, time to close voting.

It's obvious, with 100% of the vote, that we need a Supermoto forum

i can only think you just can't stand back and see that it will damage the forum. seperating people away for an unnecassary reason is not a good step for the forum overall.

there is a TECHNICAL post at the moment on the kickstart crescent = no input from SM folk. you seem to think it will get the site more technical articles but the truth is you want to be given the SM knowledge ASAP so you can use it in your business.

i can tell you now that SM riders will keep their knowledge to themselves. hard earnt info will still be kept a secret.

we have an article on my bike not running right at low revs having put in larger exhaust valves. simon (SM fan and devotee) HAS joined in with this one but it as usual has quietened the rest of UHE down. nobody else does anything technical from the SM side and having a seperate group won't change that. dale is a flattracker. so the two with the biggest technical input DON'T come from that arena.

clearly, tuning articles leave SM riders completely out of their depth as much as MX or enduro.

another thing that concerns me-again-is this thing about you want different things to us? we have far, far more in common than that which we don't. you should be thinking of reasons to stick together and not be so devisive.

i don't understand (json!!!!) why the subject line can't continue to fit in our regular forum catagories but have a traffic light colour in the top left corner as i have previously described where you indicate where your post is aimed. SMO. END. MX. FLT. TRL. GEN.

the vast majority of SM threads would STILL be flagged as 'general' (if you were to be as open and inclusive as possible!).

this is not an inclusive move-it's divisive. the site will be all the poorer for it. i wonder how many of you will vote for the good of the site or for yourselves? i hope those with a more neutral stance will consider this when voting.

those that have followed this thread will have seen that there are many, many people who feel this isn't a wise move for UHE.

I can see your various points in this thread and have voted "No" accordingly, but you really need to use the Emoticons when using your style of humour. If you think the british have a weird sense of humour, Australians are renowned for their left field humour - especially when the going is tough. It wouldn't surprise me if an Aussie was asked by a Heathrow customs officer "have you got anything to declare", He'd probably say something like "Na mate, just a few detonators and a few kg of C4". I hope you get my drift.
PS what is this about an Australian farmer joke.......
