No, he was not defending me. He stated that he doesn't know me or my intentions. Physicians are supposed to speak from a basis of facts. That's why they run all those tests before they give you the diagnosis. He did not seek facts before getting on his soapbox to vent. And that "ignore this if it doesn't pertain to you" caveat doesn't cut it. To ignore it leaves it out there as an uncontested fact. If he's going to quote my post and denigrate me, weak caveat or not, he better have FACTS to back it up.

Wow !!!!

Wow ! I guess I'm just not used to hearing this kind of argument in the forum, but
it somehow provokes me to say something.
I am a disabled Viet Nam vet. When I returned from the war, I was spit on and called a baby killer.
When I went to college, no one would have anything to do with me, but I got over it.
The funny thing is, that to this day, I still get upset when I see a car without a plackard parked in a handicap space. Fortunately, I have learned to mind my own business and not jump to conclusions. I think it's better
that way. Why stir up trouble if you don't have to.
Riding is my attitude adjustment, so I'm going for a nice long ride and come home with a smile on my face
and tolerance in my heart. Riding is medicine for the soul. Party on taggers !

I had a feeling I'd be opening up a hornets nest and I'm more than happy to explain myself. And yes I'm new to the forum and new to riding and enjoying both as well as the new people I've met. As I first stated I could not tell if the bike was tagged or not . If tagged then the bike is in the right spot although I would encourage you to use the whole spot as Is your right. I think would be safer as well. I was not tying to jump to conclusions,I was just stating facts and opinion based on what I could see in the picture. I am more than happy to be corrected I am only human after all.
My concern was protecting the rights of the handicapped and trying to present a positive image of cyclist. A little bad press goes a long way. I've seen it many times as a bicyclist when a group of us clog intersections or not let cars pass when a little common courtesy could have gone a long way

And yes I ride as often as I can. To work and long rides on weekends. At over 1000 miles in less than three months I don't think I'm doing to bad. I'm trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can that's why I also take times to read the forums and comment. I Also look forward to my first contribution to this tag o Rama and meeting y'all on the road

New tag



Some trivia about this tag: The road this church is on is named for a prominent SC family. The matriarch of the family has a TV show on ETV weekday mornings entitled "Priscilla's Yoga Stretches".

The R1200GSA is currently in addition to the 1150GS. The 1150 experienced a major electrical system failure and has been totaled by the insurance company. They are currently still determining the fault. I do not expect to end up with it.

Getting the R1200GSA was an easy decision, just more money than I want to spend. I really like it and am getting used to the higher power/ torque. I popped my first wheelie the other day coming out of the neighborhood. I have seen YouTube videos of guys jumping and riding wheelies on these big 'ol bikes and did not understand how they do that. But now I do. They have THAT MUCH TORQUE !! The ESA is really nice too.

The Tag and Grab today is part of the 600 mile break in.

We should plan another dual sport group ride. See you on the road.

You did. I arrived back at TouringSport with Willie trailering the 1150GS just after you left that Saturday. I was pretty stressed after experiencing the death of my 1150GS.

A friend of mine and I road Caesar's Head and stopped at .Cedar Mtn fire station to talk about riding skills. When I tried to turn off the ignition, the bike did not shut off. I put it in first gear and put the kick stand down to shut down the motor, but it stayed energized. We were talking about riding skills and I smelled smoke. I got off the bike and took off the seat and flames appeared. A fireman happened to be at the station to wash a car and grabbed a fire extinguisher. We put the fire out and I had to unhook the gas tank, lift it and unhook the battery to de energize the bike. The main wiring harness behind the battery under the seat had shorted and caught fire.
