I think the point the previous posters were making is that most people pay for an Internet service provider. Comcast, Hughes, Centurylink etc etc. Your ISP will normally assign you an e-mail, joe_smoe@comcast.net for example. Use that e-mail (rather than any gmail/hotmail ones) to sign up for ktmtalk.

Obviously above isn't 100% anymore, you could be reading at your library or over a 3G smartphone etc .... but generally it's still true.

Certainly ktmtalk is different than here, it has different values and is moderated differently. As with real life different situations require you conduct yourself in different ways.

As you said (Most people) but not all, I must be the exception then.
I stop by the site once to try and register after I got my 450EXC. It looked like it would be more of a hassle for me that it was worth.

Well, it's an incredible resource for those bikes. People like DJH and Travis (thumper racing) spend a lot of time in the RFS forum. I'm not sure if they frequent the equivalent forum at Thumpertalk.

Not a slam at Thumpertalk, I've never spent much time there. If you're getting all you need from TT and ADV then it's moot right?

I’m sure it is and I’m not knocking KTMTALK at all. Most of the info I get from other sites about my 450exc reference KTMTALK, that’s how I found out about them.
I just don’t have a pay account email address and I don’t want to get one just to join a forum. So its kinda $hitty for me.

My understanding in cases such as the above is that if you e-mail Pat (admin@ktmtalk.com), explain the details, don't cop an attitude (not suggesting you did, but many do) he'll confirm you manually.

As far as free e-mail goes, I think gmail is pretty reliable, hotmail sucks badly and Yahoo is somewhere in the middle. I know if you start actually bouncing Pat will disable the account so I'd avoid trying to sign up using hotmail.com/live.com

That was precisely my point. Perhaps the OP isn't paying for internet service, but if you do, you generally get email accounts with that service. If you don't pay for internet service at all, you're a .001%er.

The only adjustment that I needed to make over at KTM Talk was their intolerance for joking around. Very little off-topic gab or joking around is allowed. They take it pretty serious, and that's actually a feature if you ask me.

So you’re calling me a looser because I don’t have home internet access? Or is this some of the joking around thats not allowed over at KTMTALK?

I started out on ktmtalk.
Some helpful guys on there, no doubt.

Too many Mods think they are in Power on
the classifieds, plus it wasn't user friendly
With me not being a computer whiz.

I switched to ADV & Never looked back

KTM Talk is way more usefull than ADV when it comes to bike maintenance and rebuilding of the single cylinder bikes where ADV is where adventure (big bikes) rule and LOVE the RR's. Thanks to guys on Talk, I can revalve my forks or do a topend job on an RFS or XC-4 motor without hesitation. They also have their "off topic" sections for useless threads like this one.
NO, I am not a KTM Talk leg humper!

I have close to 10,000 useful and helpful posts there
There is no way I can say anything bad about ktmtalk
Over the years I have gained many good riding buddies and a lot of technical knowledge from there
actually it is my primary social site too LoL
lots of bros there
I love those guys
met the website owner too and he is cool
he banned me a few times but always forgave me and let me come back and for that im grateful
KTMTALK rocks
if you dont like it, too bad, maybe we dont need you there
if you dont like KTMTALK you can kiss my ass (cant say that word there)
