Jeezis, people!

If nobody gave a rat's ass about how something looked as long as it worked, we'd all be riding rat bikes, and none of the performance companies would chrome their accessories. Everybody cares to a greater or lesser degree how their equipment, and their gear, looks. In that regard, lowrider01 is no different than the majority of the members here. All he did was ask for opinions -- just like thousands have previously done on these pages.

This turned ugly in a hurry. Where were the moderators with the quick trigger finger on this one? Perhaps piling on was more attractive than keeping things reasonably hospitable to a relatively new member with fewer than 10 posts who was interested enough to ask the opinions of members whose experience may have mattered to him. I doubt it does anymore.

Apes all the way. Look better with the added benefit of being more comfy.

Nothing wrong with havin and expressing a different opinion.

Plenty of different reasons for owning and enjoying a bike.

No reason at all for abusing or being out right rude to another person in particular some you have never met.

Being well riden or riding a rat makes you no better a person than some one whos just picked up their first bike.

How do i contact a moderator Silverback.

We are in red...

And silverback nobody crossed any of the lines.

No, cursing, nudity, or the like.

Op basically stated he was a poser... Worried about what people think. Not what is comfortable or safe for him to operate.

But I'm good to tango if you wish to call any more mods onto the carpet!

Why do people wear beards ? Comfortable and Safe to operate I guess.

Well if that is directed to me...

I wear it because I like it... I did not poll a bunch of people on the Internet to ask what facial hair I should grow...

Thank you for making my point.
