Sorry to have created this furore (sp) but hopefully something positive comes of it.

in my view tb is a campaign to make bikers and cagers aware of each other. yes, philosophically it may further extend from this premise, but i don't have the time now to discuss these.
the tb campaign at its core is good and we can all benefit from it. the fact that there is a forum linked to it is circumstancial - if the bikesa forum did not close down tb would have been able to be more 'independent'. nevertheless, it is a fact that the said forum is linked to the degree that it is, but we should not colour the tb campaign with the negatively perceived individual behaviour by (by far) the minority of the members of the said forum.
it would have been great if there was a parent forum for bikers in totality, with branches to the various disciplines within the biker community. however, this is not the case and we have set up islands, which islands appear to become antagonistic toward each other, whether rightly or not - once again due to a minority. if we focus on the tb campaign's core, which in my view (as with all my postings) is the preservation of oneself, others around you and also extending to your environment, then it would be a sad day when we can 'proudly' start talking about 'us and them'.
all bikers can learn from each other: on the technical side - how the bike works and our almost symbiotic relationship with the equipment; and on the philosophical side - what makes you enjoy riding. :wink:

I post regularly on the TB forums and I'm fully into DS riding.
I support TB wholeheartedly but agree that some TB advocators are hooligans that give the campaign a bad name.
Post a link to TB I say! ...and stick a banner in your signature if you want to.


TB is a good idea
