play nice or this thread will be locked

modding a obvious trolling thread ???

let the people entertain themselves - lock it when the first account gets deleted  ;D

If it's in a Bike related board the choice is either mod it or move it to Jou Ma where you can slug it out to your hearts content


edit: to clarify, some remarks have already been deleted

With this, it was obviously as Bobnob saw it, it probably never should have been in here anyway.

Donít worry about things that arenít, worry about things that are and your decisions are so much easier to make!

Strange that when some members are involved it always ends in a mud slinging match.


Strange that it's always the same old members banging on the same old drum.

But I apologize from my side. Been in a bit of a fowl mood since the news from yesterday....  :(

Who cares who wins.
It is like watching the tests on expensive cars on TV and you can't afford one.
When in doubt pin it

Did you know a chain is the most productive means to tranfer power.
More efficient than belts, hydrostatic or even gears.

This will make the Katoom faster :pot: :imaposer: :pot: :imaposer:

That's true. The beemer loses a bit due to the diff, but it has so much more that it should not matter too much.

In fact, this whole pissing contest is silly. The beemer does not need to be that quick, it a comforatble ride. The KTM on the other hand... :P
Oh, and also, we should make this a few miles not a 1/4, then the BMW will win for sure as chances are the KTM will have to stop for a puncture repair.  :pot:
