Amongst the useful tech tips etc, I have reminded myself why I hate British motorcle forums. And why I prefer this American/ Canadian one.

The racism is awful. I really just can't stand it. The lack of humour, the appalling lack of intelligence, ditto.

I give you a particularly nasty thread, but there are many worse.

Hi,

I'm sorry that you don't "fit in" with the other members of my forum.
BikeChatForums is a place where all people from all walks of life can discuss, debate and occasionally learn new things.
The fact that so many people can have a different points of view, yet still discuss it in a way that fists aren't thrown about says a lot about them.

If you find the opinions of others to be "racist" when your own stance is based on misguided assumptions and a lack of understanding, it says more about you than it does about the members of BCF.

Thanks
Korn (BCF Admin)


Edit.

Maybe you should explain why you "left" sport-touring.org in the first place.
Never mind, I'll do it for you.

Welcome new member.  :wave:

A) I never left this site. I like needling Mericuns about their self defeating and silly obsession with guns.
B) It would be nice to have a British site to have fun on. Sadly, yours isn't the one for me. Some obviously good people and a large helping of idiots. I've found similar stuff on previous UK sites I've been on. Shame.
C) the Nazi uniforms bit was good. And funny.
D) I can't seem to find a way to delete my profile on BCF. Perhaps, as a Mod on BCF, you have this power?
E) Thanks for trying to stir things up for me here. In my day, such behaviour was a complete no-no. Incredibly bad. I hope that other BCF members aren't going to prove me right about the idiocy thing.


You really are welcome here if you want to be here.

Not all of us are wankers.  :P

I find that there are twatboxes of some description on almost every forum. 
But there's a surprising number of really quite nice people on BCF.
It's not such a bad place.

It's always a bit tricky when you speak as you find, only to discover that not everybody likes what you have to say.

No shit Sherlock
(although to be fair, that was a tiny tiny flounce compared to some of the flounces we've had on there over the years, LMFAO)

But I seeeeeeee what is going on here.
Are you the token Limey or something?
The entirety of the Europe and & UK forum is filled mostly with posts started by yourself.
It must be very lonely  :bluduh:

I tire of BCF occasionally myself, but it's my sort of second home and I fit in amongst the social outcasts on there, quite well, I think. But I do need somewhere new to relax and get away from the attitudes from time to time.  I was thinking of mooching over to The Rev Counter but I suspect too many people know me over there (or think they do ... )

One presumes as a sport touring forum, there's not that "american iron" supremacy bum-fluff going on here too much, that you find so prevalent on other US forums? I like an interestingly modified bike, but not at the expense of having to put up with zeppos telling us all how superior Gnarley-Ds are. I have one, it's not *that* superior.

Pardon me, should that be "token Sheepshagger" :blbl:

Being an (ex-pat) kiwi, I usually get that handle, although not normally on BCF

Wow is right, where are the moderators?
Down the pub, of course.
Or riding their bike, which one expects to be normal in a bike forum.
Oh, possibly flying a plane.
Or maybe just with their hand up a cow's bum.
Our mods are perfectly alright.
Some of them are even still breathing!

I think they do a reasonable job, given the material they have to work with.
It's just not a heavily-censored forum, that's all.

Americans are supposed to be big on freedom of speech, and yet it is usually American forums which are the most heavily censored: puritanism in its most conservative form is usually to be found on American forums, closely followed by worryingly blinkered patriotism.

Although I find it tiresome at the best of times, BCF is one of the most openly outspoken forums I have been on in a long time (and I've been on a fair few).
I'm often one of the few reactionary old gits on there...  :angry: :nono: :bluduh: :willy:
It's hell, but someone has to be the boring old tart ... fart.

Yep, it would be nice to have a few more Europeans, including Brits, around. I think there's about 4 Brits here.

No American iron supremacy here, although HD riders are present.
