Prmurat, thanks for the advertising... Soviet Steeds always welcomes new members and you bringing us up might encourage just that when folk who need helpful assistance in repairing their Russian rig, finding out about Russian rig gatherings, sharing ride adventures, meeting nice folk from all over the globe, looking to buy or sell Russian rig related merchandise, learning about cool modifications, and just plain helping people with their passion for motocycles. Thanks a million!!!

I wonder if we should nominate Prmurat as a SS ambassador of good will?

Are you really that obtuse?

I said that I agree with you that there are some vitriolic right wingers. Unfortunatly you have obviously chosen to ignore that, and that there are also vitriolic left wingers, who both choose, like you, to condemn everyone who doesn't think exactly like you.
Freedom of speech* goes both ways, banning only one side is censorship.The soapbox was temporary suspended because both sides went too far.

No matter how many excuses and justifications you make, it doesn't change the fact that you are guilty of unjustly stereotyping an entire group of people on this forum.

You seem to think this is some sort of philosophical debate, it is not, you are spreading hate and intolerance here, you are simply being called on it.









*Freedom of speech doesn't include slander.

So, let me get this straight. It is not OK for someone to judge a race by the actions of a few, but is OK for you to judge an entire group of people based on the actions of a few? I fail to see how you aren't a hypocrite.

He's so far out in left field that he's alone in another ball park, and the only game being played is the one in his head.

It seems that in his opinion, partisipating on S.S. makes you guilty by association even if you dont hold the oppinions he claims to abhor. I wounder why he doesn't apply the same standards here?

The fact that he hasn't acknowledged his unjust slander of those of us who are innocent speaks volumes.

You know Racism is a 2 way street. Seems to me the one screaming it loudest is the biggest racist here. Why don't you go back to what ever 3rd world rock you crawled out from under and save it from mankind.

Say have you donated all those bikes you own to the less fortunate like you said you were going to on SS. Probably not considering your just a I'm PRMURAT and you the only person in the world who counts. It amazes me even San Francisco can out up with your crap. Maybe if you got a good douche you'd feel brighter.

He walked 2 or 3 miles (we live in the outskirts where nobody lives and no cars had passed him). The engine went out on the first short ride of more than several miles.....main bearing. He fixed it and about 3 months later he was riding and the wheel bearing failed in the rear wheel hub.

And he made fun of me buying a Jap bike. Look whose laughing now. I had a Jawa bike (british) and it was MUCH MUCH better than the Ural bikes could ever hope to be. Jawa required some maintenance, but they were solid runners and much more reliable than Urals. Still they were not considered highly reliable, but I LAUGH at anyone that thinks Urals are good bikes and can honestly say it with a straight face..... In the words of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour.... "here's your sign".
I think Jawas are made in Czech or maybe Poland...

Or imported from Tatooine. I hear there is a larger displacement version in the works called a Jabba.

This thread

When I earlier stated that I enjoyed the controversy and heated discussion on this thread, I didn't mean weak and pointless accusations of racism and hatred. I was referring to motorcycle related stuff.....

"Troll-Fu" - I had to look that up on the internet. I learned a new word today.

Freedom of speech is great! I also have the freedom to listen or not to listen. If some of you don't like what's on the internet then go to another site. I assume that's also why the inventers of television and radio gave us a choice of channels.

Then again, some people do like to yell at the rain, it's how they vent what they don't understand about themselves.

Can we get back to Urals now?????

All Hondas are junk. Don't buy one.

Just saying.
