1) Your love for 2 stroke?
2) Your hate for James Stewart?
3) Your hate for Chad Reed? Oh, wait a minute, this was 2 years ago …
4) Your love for Chad Reed?
Etc…

I don't post much on here. Heck, wasn't I supposed to quit posting after my first one (c.f. my username)? Being the high achiever that I am (15 posts, and counting!), I definitely surpassed my own expectations. What motivates me to post on this forum is quality, not quantity. My last few posts are proof of that :
1) I only post after a long thoughtful process, so my statement is not open to argument. I was the first (4/22/12 at 2:38 pm) to tell you what was the extent of RV's injury, well before this topic went out of control. http://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/RV,1237299 (16th post of the thread, page 1). Next time, stop arguing between all of you, read my post and move on to the next topic.
2) If I am knowledgeable in a particular field, I will give valuable advice (at no charge) to whoever's seeking advice e.g. "how to get rid of arm pumps" http://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/arm-pump-nerves-HELP,1236923 (30th post of the thread, page 1). Again, my post should have ended this thread but nobody is listening here.
3) If I have a tip that can benefit my fellow vital members, I will for sure help a brother in the need. Like finding a job in the motorcycle industry http://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/jobs,1236437 (8th post of the thread, page 1).



4) But mostly for the fun even though my sense of humor is misunderstoodtongue

I post to hear other's experiences so I can compare them to mine.

I get a kick out of the "bench racing" stories that go with them.

Thus, my 2 recent posts - Scarriest Ride and Bike you gelled with. There is some good reading in the stories the Vital members post.

I also piss people off because of my position on 2 strokes!wink I have nothing against 4 strokes though as some seem to...

I still do it for the fun. Don't get too wrapped up in the "used to be". It's now, now, not then.

boredom..........You know that time when you get out of bed and sit and check your email before you take a shower and go and do something productive......or when you wake up in the middle of the night and play computer solitaire or vitalmx

That's why I used to post here.

Now, I just come back to relive some past glory.

I post here because every message board needs that one member who's always right on the money with his assessments, who's seemingly always a step ahead of everyone else's thought process. I set an example for others to look to so they know how to act in a public forum. I feel a tremendous respect directed at me from the Vital community--humbling, considering I've never raced and have no knowledge of the sport before 2001--and I'm truly honored to accept the responsibility. The first time I'm wrong about anything I post, that's the day I'll hang it up forever.

What was different between then and now?

I post because I like motocross, and like talking about the reality of what's happening on the track every week.

I think a lot of the current crop of posters post like how they think things should be, or want them to be, but quite a few have are lacking the perception of how things really are.

Sorry, the only really serious political stance I've taken is on the topic of abortion.

My dad taught me years ago that it was OK to hate 2-strokes. He was always a critic of the ring-ding sound, like when a friend of his brought one on a dual-sport ride and after several hours it drove my dad over the edge and he ended up strangling the guy to death with his own throttle cable. I still visit him in prison.

As far as other motivators: Sometimes I'm a religious James Stewart Defender, but other times not so much.cheerful

Motodrive was a smaller, more cohesive board, Steve. The intelligence of the average poster seemed to be greater. It's been a long time since I've been inspired to write one of my long winded diatribes, but then again, that could just be me.

I'm so sorry that we Estonians are so small nation that we dont have our own forum site. So, we have to have your boring two stroke vs four stroke, and AMA vs GP forum. Get over it. So many things happens over the world. Lets talk about things what keep us going in this time. Peace. I m the hug fan of motocross, and everything what going over the world cares me. Keep your emotions low, and lets tolk about world wild motocross.
