    I'm getting real ****ed sick and tired of these smart *** newbies and their antagonistic posts... As I just posted in the introduce... Any newbie walked into the worklshop/clubhouse of the piston Psychos and started acting this way they'd be getting a severe beating while being thrown out the door...! Sorry guys just venting a little here. Am I being overly sensitive?
     

  2. A matter of manners

    Rif, Amigo, I got to tell you that in the days I was growing up, we EXPECTED to get the Carp kicked out of us by ANYONE we insulted, no matter what age, and if we were dumb enuf to complain when we got home, about getting our butts kicked by an adult, First Mom would lite in on us and then say "You just wait till your Father gets home".

    GAME ON!

    These little PisiAnts need to be shown the Way, the Truth and the Light! How did you like Turbo's blatant disreguard for authority in tearing up that car before it was repo'd? And, making movies of it, and bragging? His already low respect status with me, has plunged to the level of the Katsup-throwing NitWit of Arizona! Who by the way got moral support from his Father-in-law an admin here!

    Sometimes I cannot bear to read (the poorly written, and ill-concieved) ramblings of what most certainly must be the dregs of society?

    Some days, after an overdose on juvenile testosterone, I feel ready to give up on all of them, and let them just drown in thier own spit!

    But then, I remember an Ancient Carpenter, and what he taught, and good people I've met in this strange journey that we call life, and in self defense, I will sometimes appeal to the Admin here to remove the vile moment from the sight of the rest of the world (after all, I have already seen it, no need to polute others).

    I have already had pisisingmatches with a couple of these mental midgets, that I would not let clean my dogs feet, and I have determined that if it was popularity that I craved, I am certainly barking up the wrong tree, as the Rats that abide in that tree will most assuredly try toShiponmydreams!

    As always,
    Mike

    I very much understand the feeling. My parents and peers taught me manners. I guess some people were just brought up bad.
    Also, I am astounded at some of the people who get into riding these bikes without the slightest mechanical knowledge or aptitude. I am hesitant to help some of them just because I can imagine what kind of riders they are. Unfortunately, when they crash and burn, as many of them inevitably will, the "general population" may see it as a reflection of the unsafe nature of motored bikes, rather than what it is - just god's way of sorting out the bad apples.

    I know that some, Augie for one, see motored bikes as a movement which will sweep the nation, and it may, but I must say that I shudder to think of some of my neighbors ridiing anything but the tamest of motored bikes.

    Heh. Nice. I'm just saying, you know? There's some good Kids out there, but man most of these guys are just effin rude you know? Love the self proclaimed expert telling another that the knee action schwinn springer is not really suspension and non funtional, it is only decoration because it doesn'r have the "rockers" at the axles for any pivoting action...
    That was good. Dr. X and his bike bug... I have the parts he needed but he was acting like a *****, so he's not getting my parts. SAend him to Mike Schneider. And todays newbie in the introduce yourself... I just walked away before I got myself in trouble.
    Oh well... Patience is a virtue I guess...

    what did i miss? i'll admit to not being 100% satisfied that 'kronic represents MBc properly all the time.

    anyways, while i was waiting to get internet back, i was surfing cable-TV, it's like porn and "jacka s s" all rolled into one, no wonder the rest of the world hates us. hehe, good move, rif...i was coming in here today to start a new topic: "are the people we're trying to save worth it?"

    this was as nice as i felt like being to the putz: http://www.motoredbikes.com/showpost.php?p=86860&postcount=9

    Well okay I'm not just being overly sensitive or cranky here. Alaska, You may not know me as well as Mike and Augie (but you will); I am one of the first to jump up and try to help, but if I feel taken for granted, or taken advantage of ,the game is over. Period- you're done, thanks for playing. Know what I mean?
    Furthermore I totally see and I agree with your take on this as well. It will present a bad public image, undermining the Social/Political activism we are also trying get to; working toward, in order to promote these vehicles as a true alternative...
    What the heck has happened in this country? I was raised by old fashioned good ol' down home folk, and apparently we are the few these days. Whereas the common courtesy, and the way we conducted ourselves in public politely, was once the rule has now become the exception.
    My mom says ( and I can't disagree) when she was in school there were etiquette classes that were a part of the required classload. Too bad this is no longer true, perhaps things would not have gotten to the place they seem to be today...
    Nice post Augie, polite, firm, and to the point. Well thanks again for leting me vent...

    Rif, I feel like I have gotten to know you pretty well through your various posts at MBc. I totally agree about helping. I'll go out of my way to help, even if in the back of my mind I'm thinking that a skateboard would be too complex a piece of equipment for a particular person. But. My bottom line is that there are too many people in the world for me to be friends with all of them, so I can afford to be picky. If someone rubs me wrong, as Appye did, I can just move on. It may be a bit self-centered, but I feel like the worst punishment I can deal to someone is the witholding of my friendship.

    but, in the name of community spirit, it is ok to lightly make it known that the rub was wrong...people should know that we are serious about the long haul. if someone can't hang, they'll wind up being a drag on the movement if we just babysit 'em all.

    am i too tough? shoot, in real life half (edit: 3/4) of these guys would be stopped at the door.

    On the lighter side, my first response (which I managed to erase before posting) was about an interesting way he could discover the difference between plastic and wire (I don't know if you paid attention to his post about being confused). I was going to suggest that he take two long pieces of each kind of material, put one end of one piece of plastic in his mouth, put the other end into a wall socket. Then take the other piece of plastic, put one end in another orifice and the other end in the other slot of the wall socket. Note the result, and repeat the experiment using wire. I bet he would have discovered a difference. I was perhaps a little cranky at the time. I erased it instead of posting because I figured I would be stepping across the line of the family friendly nature of the forum.

    You're a pretty hip dude; I really like that bit about with holding friendship. Truth rings clearly from those words... Take care my amigos I must now go gather ice and pain meds from overdoing today. Talk to y'all tomorrow...

    HI Augi, what I was referring to was that old incident some time back where the lil Bastage from AZ was insulting me. If he were on the side of the road, dying of thirst, I would not stop to whiz in his mouth.

    I too am very burned up about the arrogance, the demands, and the lousy demeanor, of ohh, all too many of the Newbies.

    BUT I can assure you that you-all do not have to endure what I do, How you say? We read on gentle reader, and Ol Mike shall lead you down the Primrose path, but, don't stray dears, as the sides of the path are littered with thorns and thistles.

    Several years ago, in what was then the Glory Days of SpitFire, I was sole distrubitor of the Starfire, and Skyhawk line. But shortly an ugly ogre raised its vile head.

    "What you ask, shrinking back, could this be? "

    Greasier than a Polyester Lounge Lizard, More disgusting than a Plaid Jacketed Used Car Salesman, Less welcome to a loud smelly fart in church, it was "The eBay Box-Seller"

    These Bastages became the scourge of legitimate businesses who had introduced the Motorbicycle engines, and who served thier customers above and beyond the call of duty!

    "What more could go wrong, you cry in unison?"

    The low-life Box-Sellers backdoored Grube's contracts in the engine factories ( never trust Chinese in business) and then delivered the "Rabbit Punch" that burns on today.

    The Cheap SOB's pirated our instruction sheet naming Me and My website as Warrantee and Technical help for them!!! This includes Kings, Birddog, and some of the others who are no longer in the game.

    More recently, 888smile is referring his smuggled engine customers to my website and me, and says something to the effect of a dealership arrangement!

    SOOOOO now I get emails, and phone calls (yes my number is in the old instruction sheets) with some newbie Plick ( you know what is PLICK, right? just slip R in it!) saying something like this " Hi I bought one of your 80cc motors, and it won't run, the little thing the carb fits on is broke, can you send me out another right away?"

    I am certain they you-all have not been experiancing this phenomonon for over 5 years like I do.

    Underestimated, Disrepected, and sometimes unloved, I remain

    I can easily understand how tough it's gotta be from your perspective Mike. I wouldn't have the patience to deal with the semi-legitimate customer problems, much less the ones totally out of left field. The engines are subject to so much abuse, misuse, maluse, and outright neglect. I myself abuse and misuse my bikes. But. I don't expect anyone but myself to be responsible for the results. (WizWheelz recently told me that cutting up my trike would void the warranty, and I told them that just me riding it here should void the warranty).
    P.S. Someone (I think it was Machiavelli) once said that the only thing better than being overestimated by your enemies, is being underestimated by your friends.

    LOL!!! I am such an abuser of my toys; I play hard! I always have and always will,(much to the dismay and chagrin of a coupler of my motobros hehehe...) but like you, I realize I ride hard, and don't expect anyone but myself to be responsible- financially, wrenchingly, moraly, etc. I take resposibility for my actions. I also couldn't agree more that some of these boneheads shouldn't even own anything mechanical and that perhaps public transportation would probably be their best option.
    Mike, you and I have talked and I know how badly you were burned in this motorsport, but I will say I am glad that you dug in and held on for the long haul, I believe you to be an asset to this movement. It's not gonna happen quickly, change takes time, and hard work. BUT It would seem since the switch to Whizzers, things are a bit brighter. So you know, I guess to sum up, I'll continue to help and welcome the fledgelings, as long as they mind their P.'s & Q.'s. **** I'm not perfect, Augi has had to smack me down a couple of times but you know what? I smile and say, "Oh yeah. Right. Sorry dude." and we roll along with a smile. What's so ****ed hard about that I wonder?
    :rolleyes:

    shoot, i don't even need the "sorry"...i'd just like the new-guys to try a little harder, considering how hard we've worked to get it to this point.

    candidly, i can't wait until the happy-times are blocked at the borders, then we'll start to gather more-serious members/riders.

  17. Primrose Path

    Hey Rif, if you can find your way to the end of the Primrose path, I think you'll find a black front end, and a pipe there????

    gone_fishin Guest

    what the H E double-fargen-toothpick am i supposed to do with the happy-timers?!

    mike, you have any idea what it's like to have to babysit (i mean here) the box-buyer? man, the mentality...i truly do like the lil engines, but i'm a mechanical-realist about them. these cheap buyers come with cheap morals, too.

    anyway, that didn't help me feel any better.

    mike: tell us more about the path, but mostly about the front-end...private jokes, or ones i don't get, always drive me nuts LOL
     
  20. & we worry about cars?

    An amateaur biker will get you killed faster than a professional car driver that doesn't see you. Keep that in thought....
