i have only been a member for about 3 weeks ..
the main guys here know these things better than aprilia most likely ..and a good forum is one of the best venues to the best information in the world ...on any given subject
sorry... not all ...but a few ....made me feel like i was getting slammed for trying to give something back to a forum that had given something to me...by making it a little better by making it a little eaiser to use ...it wasnt about showing off in any way ...i know i dont know crap about these things yet ..sorry watty it wasnt you you allways have your two cents but its just noise mostly
i am sure i am not the only one that has been made to feel that way ...the more people that post here the more knowledge that will be shared and that information will benifit everyone here ...you have people from all walks of life here..from engineers to literally rocket scientists with amazing knowledge... very willing to share it ....we should make them feel apreciated for doing so ...because they really get nothing for it other than the satisfaction of knowing they helped a fellow enthusiast .. today ..
i have been racing and riding for approxamately 30 years ... i may be new to the sxv but not riding suspension and over all racing knowledge ..younger i rode motocross ..and later went to AMA and WERA superbikes ....i raced competitvely against ..scott russel.. dave sadowski kurt hall...and many other top riders for many years ..
I currently own a racecar fabrication shop ...i build cars for NHRA ..SCCA ...IMSA..a gift i have but my thing is bikes .. .so have the ability to develop things ...and better this forum ...
People here should take notes from rzrob he is very knowledgable and allways complementary supportive and gives sound advice with out trying to inflate his ego ...this isnt about his ego or who knows more...
i compiled a list of information found on this forum and posted it as it should have been posted ..in the common problems and information thread .. and have gotten nothing but flack from the regular on this forum not thanks welcome not well put together ...flack to the point of threatining to remove it .. because i pluged my dealer and i didnt pump ther egos and give them the credit for thinking of it first ...they probably read or heard it somwhere else ..themselves ....it isnt about egos ..it is just about helping others get the most enjoyment from a wonderful motorcycle ...it is really a tool to sell parts from the sponsor
because of this .. i can see why so may are observers ...people dont need to add anything to this forum..in an effort to better it ... to get what they need from it ..i have proven the search key works........having a PMS moment i guess but food for thought
