Could everybody just take a minute and put what kind of bike you have in your Profile/Signature and make sure you have your Signature set to always appear? I get real frustrated trying to help when I can't remember that you posted your bike type 2 weeks ago.

If you have more than one bike that we cover here, say a 750c and a 900F, please indicate in your question which bike you are asking about.

Case in point: Bobster just posted a spark plug question (not picking on you there Bobster, this happens all the time). One of the answers is for a different plug number. Now, if Bobster has a 900, I'll argue with Ray a bit about the answer and maybe we'd all learn something from the back and forth. If it's a 750, I won't, and none of us always has the time to look back to previous messages to figure it out.

So please, for more accurate answers and discussions put your bike in your signature or at least reference it in each and every question/comment you have.

I thank you and my personal mental health practitioner thanks you.

It usually is. Us young punks just go looking for trouble. So here I am, causing trouble. I just accept that it was my fault before I even know what I'm being blamed for.

When I stop and think about it and I'm not wollowing in self pity and sarcasim
The fact is I've already made a diference
I've helped bring in to the world and raise two happy, healthy and realitivly sane people.
I'm very proud of my two girls there going to be better persons than I was
I'm proud of what I do for a living
and I vote my concience ,not some party line
NOW let me go back being a krumodgen and please don't make me upbeat and earnest again.
Thank you

That's ok though, most people make a difference just to be seen. You shouldn't really thought.

It's kind of like subs in a car, 9/10 people buy them for everyone else to hear. You should really be buying them for the sound quality and for your self.

All sarcasm a side, that's something to be proud of and you should brag about it with no shame.

ANYWAYS...
