KTM Talk

Am I the only one that thinks KTMTalk website is a big waste of time? There are so many restrictions over there I gave up...I had a few things to get rid of and saw postings from members looking for what I had on "WTB..." in their classifieds section..I could'nt reply to them because I'm a "new member"...so if I reply a few times to establish myself to lose my new member status then I can post....I've got better things to do with my time than create 5 phony posts to be able to reply to someone's ad, then I see if I do 5 or so fake posts they'll block me out forever...so long KTMTalk..too bad...

Like anything else in life you get back what YOU put into it. A website flourishes by people participating and helping each other. If you don't want to participate then don't. There are plenty that do participate on KTM talk and get plenty out of the experience. Bashing another website. A highly respected one at that, will serve no purpose except to make you look small.

As far as no noob posting in the classified section. Each website takes different measures to protect the members from unscrupulous activities from outside. I've seen plenty of threads on the interweb concerning members that were scammed from a 1 post member that got in an took advantage of them. The staff is unable to watch every single thread to twart those activities. Automatic setting have to be implemented.

When I was looking for a 525 I jumped through all the hoops to become a member. Found the bke I wanted but couldn't respond. So I used a friends log in to contact and make the sale. The guy I bought the bike from had been a member for a long time. I bought the bike and discovered a few "I didn't realise that was f'd up" things with the bike.

No matter how many failsafes are in place, this crap happens. I rarely go on there any more because I find it just as cagiva and Thor described.

Don't you just love those people like this guy who feels it his job to protect us. Weather we want it or not?

You appear to have a reading comprehension issue if that is what you took from my post.
Cheers!

In some circles, I believe that's called "voicing one's opinion".

These days, you can hardly avoid reviews of whatever: products, services, threads, etc., and I consider the OP's post to be a review of KTM Talk-- a one-star review-- and I thank him for saving me the time and effort of paying it a visit.

I agree, and that in essence is what I love about advrider. You can speak your mind. You might get called out for it, but you're free to speak your mind regardless.

And as others have said, KTMT seems like a great place for singles riders, but being a twin rider I haven't found anything of much use to me over there.

thats true about the LC8 section being weak , this one is great no need for a duplicate because this one is here

but the OP and the other complaintants seemed to be aiming the negativity ray at the style and personal feel, not substance, character, and content ,
So not liking to be clearly identified is not a valid beef IMO, either is getting banned for trollism
neither are valid reasons for assigning a "one star" rating
so I do not agree with giving creedence to invalid opinions

I think that you can speak your mind there too. It's basically the same as here , true at ADV rider you can be a little more vulger or profane and it gives a feeling of freedom , there they will shut you down for saying a bad word

but personal attacks, racist remarks , hate speech , insults to the mods, or pressing political views out of context that are offensive to the mods will get you nuked in a heartbeat at either ktmt or adv
the rules are pretty generic on all message boards

I go to KTMTalk regarding dirt bikes and ADVrider for adventure bikes.

Love them both for these two different reasons.

I find little if any difference in the tenor and tone of posters on either site.

As someone else commented, you get out what you put in.

+1 when my son was racing his KTM 50 that site was the bomb for information. Not so much with my 950Adv. Most of the Adventure posts are look over at advrider in the OC...
