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.

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.

The guys in the 2 stroke forum are very knowledgeable and quick to reply. A good resource.

+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...

I haven't been in awhile. However, I seem to remember that their big twins section wasn't very much help...as CCR posted.

It wasn't even close to the OC. ADVRider is still the shizzel...

Moderation is not really your strong side, is it? are they sending people to the gas chambers from KTM TALK ?
It is just a web site no one is forcing anyone to go there. If you dont like it stay out of it.

Been a big help to me, and I appreciate the folks over there that have helped. I'm a lifetime member, and it's a bargain.

KTM Talk is great for the little bikes, some very knowledgeable people over there.
Not so useful for the big bikes, thats where ADV is mucho better.

I've posted a few big bike trip reports over there. Always a positive response, but little feedback.

I didn't care for their classified section even before it was reorganized several months back. Now even worse.

Well, Nomad, 'ol bud, apparently, taking a joke is not your forte', either. It was just a joke....OK? What say I buy you a beer, we call it even? OH, and by the way, they did send me to the chamber, but my sentence was commuted to life. IN THE ORANGE CELL BLOCK. That's how I became an inmate......but that's another story.......

Take it light, Bro, and laters.....

The lunatics/nutjobs here on ADV Rider are of MUCH higher quality.
