Just looked at nevinfs327's profile and he has a Tu250. Like me. Except I bet his is on the road. Mine will be next weekend.

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.

Do they need a good poking with a stick?
Nah, they get that from me.

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.

What do you mean, token sheep shagger?

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.

Papa looks like you have a new friend.
At the risk of encouraging him, I agree with Cookie.   "Bomber"

Does an ex-pat count as one of the 4?
