I don't want to be out of line here, look at my post count and I know where I rank

But the longer a thread like this is allowed to continue, the worse it is for everyone.

I'm a loyal KTM Talk lifetime member.
I'm also a loyal ADV member.

Each has tremendous strengths and I have countless positive stories about help and good people I've met on each site. We are all so lucky to have these rescources that bring us closer together, allow us to share knowledge and experience, and give us power in numbers.

KTM Talk gave me the confidence to go orange 10 years ago.
Adventure Rider gave me the confidence to go with the big orange twin.

Thanks to all the cool people that make these places what they are.

I've been very disappointed with that site .... I rarely even visit it anymore. Much better KTM sites on the web than that one.

The small bike areas are great, the off topic areas suck. I got the hammer once for just stating that Rush was a racist when he called Michelle fat.

These days, you can hardly avoid reviews of whatever: products, services, threads, etc., and I consider the OP's post to be a review of KTM Talk-- a one-star review-- and I thank him for saving me the time and effort of paying it a visit.

*shrug* This isn't the first website I've ever been on?

IDK, I've just found other sites to be more useful.

the claims against ktmtalk are based on rhetorical idealism and utter nonsense

I agree, and that in essence is what I love about advrider. You can speak your mind. You might get called out for it, but you're free to speak your mind regardless.

And as others have said, KTMT seems like a great place for singles riders, but being a twin rider I haven't found anything of much use to me over there.

thats true about the LC8 section being weak , this one is great no need for a duplicate because this one is here

but the OP and the other complaintants seemed to be aiming the negativity ray at the style and personal feel, not substance, character, and content ,
So not liking to be clearly identified is not a valid beef IMO, either is getting banned for trollism
neither are valid reasons for assigning a "one star" rating
so I do not agree with giving creedence to invalid opinions

I think that you can speak your mind there too. It's basically the same as here , true at ADV rider you can be a little more vulger or profane and it gives a feeling of freedom , there they will shut you down for saying a bad word

but personal attacks, racist remarks , hate speech , insults to the mods, or pressing political views out of context that are offensive to the mods will get you nuked in a heartbeat at either ktmt or adv
the rules are pretty generic on all message boards

If it wasnt for KTMtalk I wouldnt have ever owned a KTM. Its by far the best KTM website on the planet period.That site has saved me thousands of dollars on repairs and parts, it has taught me a wealth of info about my bikes from tire pressure to static sag to how to properly tighten a chain on KTMs in which most KTM owners dont know how to do. I dont go there to be a jerk or smartazz, I go there for constructive information about my bikes. I have met some really cool people on that site, as we get together every year for a KTMtalk ride that usually turns up 40 to 50 riders. So you KTMtalk haters if you own a orange bike I suggest you give it a try again and have some paitence of if you are trolling for something just stay away.

I could care less if the automated membership restrictions detered you! It's definitely a tighter run ship over there but it's worth the price of admission for a dirt biker.

Don't bother if you have a twin though

KTM Talk has been invaluable to me personalty well before I started my business. More real tech and not a bunch of BS to wade threw..
This site is great for the big bikes and for shooting the shit. However KTM talk is absolutely the source for anyone wanting real info on KTM dirt bikes..
Starbucks riders need not apply..

Email sent let so how it go's.

Update this is the message I got back when trying to write to (admin@ktmtalk.com),
Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error.

Just a quick update. Thanks to crazybrit’s help I got in contact with Pat and a few emails later was approved for KTMtalk.
Not too big of a PITA and well worth the time it took, looks like a great site.
