What is it with KTM riders/owners?

I posted a topic on November 20 with regard to shifting through the gears. I had a couple of replies (some of them were helpfull and related to the topic) but then some unrelated crap from a KTM owner?! What is it with you guys? Do you sit and sift through the forum for topics posted by BMW owners and then instinctively feel that you have to reply?

There is an old saying that goes like this.........

"Wise men speak because they have something to say. Fools speak because they have to say something."

Give it some thought before you hit the reply button next time.......
This is not life or death. It is an internet forum.

I rather think it is a general weakness of most here. Just can't wait to post some drivel to be noticed.  :imaposer: (Sorry if you are one of the odd one's that don't hi-jack.  :biggrin:)


Don't let this degrade in a band bashing fiasco again.  ::)

I feel that you're generalizing and should grow a thicker skin!

It's not that life is too short. It's just that you're dead for so long.

I think it was me  ???

I'm the only KTM owner that replied  :peepwall:  an I said "sounds like a BMW that want to be a KTM "

I think that it is unfair for you to generalize, It's not a KTM thing, it's just me  :-[

So except my apology and get over it, maybe go for a nice long ride you will feel better!  :ricky:
There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.

Kudos for owning up Bakkie!

I don't mind if the original statement carried merits, but I believe it be generalizing, frivolous and duly unfounded!

 ;)

Ok I'll stop....  :peepwall:
