Qwerty. I don't mean to pry but I have three questions for you. #1 Did you happen to write for Cycle Magazine. #2 Was it TDC. #3 Is your first name Kevin. I used to read Cycle from cover to cover and I'm picking up an echo in style.

I hope everyone knows this is not humor but an attempt to honor. Kevin Cameron was perhaps the best tech writer ever.Qwerty's post are on the same level. So my glass is raised to you sir!

Let me just say that I have been checking this post every day waiting for an answer! So please, let the forum know!



ps. If your suspicions are confirmed, what does it say about our ability (as humans) to identify other personalities. It's kind of a 6th sense--instinctive. Very cool inclination either way.

#1 No.

#2 Hunh?

#3. No.



Thank you for the compliment, but no, I'm not nearly so cool. I hope Mr. Cameron isn't too insulted with your comparison.

I began receiving PMs complaining of my lack of political correctness in the face of a plethora of false, misleading, and often downright dangerous answers to legitimate questions. When pussyfooting about little boys' feelings takes precedence over truth and safety, time for me to leave. I don't hang out with children.



I only logged on today to answer all the PM notifications in my email I have received asking for advice. The PM system on this site does not allow responding directly from my email client--log-in to the site is required, which is something I won't be likely to do for a while since I have a very low tolerance for whiners. One of the PMs directed me to this thread, and I had to agree that Xracer, due to his proven record of helping others with questions, deserves an answer.



Anywho, I'd like to ask anyone who PMs in the future to please include an email address to which I can respond. It will be easier for me.



Be safe,

Ken

As John Wayne once said." Don't let the bastards get you down" Qwerty I hope you will come back aboard but if not I'll still buy you a drink if I'm ever in your neck of the woods.

Qwerty(Ken):

Your input on our forum is valuable and appreciated. I would rather that you stay with us, I'm sorry to see you leave over this. Take care.

I am confused here. Why was my remark copied in qwerty's response above?



Anyway, I hope everything is okay and that qwerty continues to shower the forum with his irreverent and stylish wisdom--its a joy to read.

Hey, qwerty's leaving? That's not fair to the rest of us. I for one never noticed any lack of political correctness in any of qwerty's posts. He even corrected something I wrote a time or two (or three?) and I never took offense at it, not like on some other forums where one-upmanship seems to be the thing rather than a wealth of knowledge. His input here and vast knowledge and personal experience on a array of topics has been invaluable and I would hate to see him gone. Do we all have to hound him with PM's until he decides to return?

Wouldn't do me any good to leave. If I miss a couple days I start getting emails and the occasional phone call. That's kind of scary, actually, since I only have a cell and don't give out the number. Some members here have 6th degree black belts in googlefoo.

Good, that's settled. You never really left anyway but were all real glad you're back. Nobody on here should feel demonized or be the recipient of derogatory remarks, whether real or perceived, we're all on here for the purpose of seeking help or advice from the rest of us with more knowledge or experience or just to hear differing opinions. There will always be some differences but those spouting out garbage will be counteracted by those with factual knowledge, we're all t-dubbers with the same interests and camaraderie at heart, right? So let's play nice and get back to work, not like the politicians in the US Congress. Besides, we all need some place to hang out and talk to each other, to get away from everything else.



Now, which is the best oil to use or the best tire?

Pass the marshmallows. Sing along. Wait, do I hear banjos?




Best oil is the one that maintains slippery over the longest period of time or miles across the broadest range of temperature with the least buildup of harmful products of chemical reactions.



Best tires are round, hold air pressure, and have a tread pattern appropriate for the riding conditions.



Any more baited questions?

Just use the right jet and you'll be good.

The oil that adds 5 hp will be found in the crankcase of a new XT250.




I don't know how to write. Sorry.



Oh, wait!



QWERTY



There ya go!
