Heh...too red, too big, can't read. Make it a sticky and watch it really disappear!


Just lock it up.

What I would like to see is a split like:
-> Orange Crush
--> 950/990 LC8 Dual Sport
--> 1190 LC8 Dual Sport
--> LC8 Street

I can add more to this but I felt like a child
I agree - we need to filter the 'fanboy' drivel out of Orange Crush.

Can I propose a different model for the forum split?

Orange Crush:

--> LC8: 950, 990, 1190
--> Tancakar and his 1190

Pointless

Agree a split would be good, it is time given the new models (see G Spot as noted earlier), not making a "them and us's" just making discussion and help easier IMO.

Technology and models change and if the forum can accommodate and move with this I think everyone would be better off long term.

Mods say no to split, but then there is this Tancakar with his 1190. It's the ultimate battle of wits, of integrity, of existence, hard to say witch one will prevail.

Stay tuned.

My highly organized German half says split. For example, when the new generation KTM 450 motor came out KTMtalk split the forum into RFS and XC4. That worked quite well.

Of course my rip roaring Irish half says lets fight about it and the last man standing decides.

Anyway, my point is I have notice, over time, that the Orange crush forum has changed in character. When the 950’s were the new big bike the forum was filled with ideas, new discussions and passion. As time has gone by many the original posters have dropped away. Probably do to the repeated questions that have already been discussed and solutions found. “They lost that lovin feelin.” The forum is not the same as it was.

Now, when new guys show up they risk being broiled in the flame if they haven't done their research. Fair enough, but its kind of like showing up to the gold strike late.

Now the 1190 will be the new girl and inspire fresh discussions and a rebirth of the old passions will come forth. Spontaneity will return. New problems and solutions found on the fly.

I know this is not decided yet...I think, and a split would be a natural evolution to this forum. The 950/990 will still be the original cool awesome forum and give the new generation it's rightful place in the sun. Come on guys do it, split is good.

Respectfully, KJ
