And the problem I had is with this statement:
"This kid, at this age, had more talent in his pinky than most of you commuters will ever have."

It got personal right there. I answered his posts very calmly and with reasoned arguments and got back insults from someone that really shouldn't insult anyone. I think everyone here knows where that's going to go.

I guess you can''t remember anything either, so explain your statement to me one more time:

"This kid, at this age, had more talent in his pinky than most of you commuters will ever have."

Go ahead.

- The experience gained on the street is huge. That's why 90% of the bike accidents occur on the street. And a rider who is competent and experienced on the street has nothing to feel bad about if he never makes it to the track. Likewise, a rider who has never been off the track has a LOT to learn when they take it to the street.

We're all riders here, everybody's opinion deserves to be heard. When it turns personal, that's not good for anybody.

Now let's all hug and sing "Kumbaya."
Kumba-ya my lord kumba-ya. Its all good, tit for tat ya know.

Not backing down from a statement like that doesn't do you justice. It just makes you look bad trying to defend it. Obviously you have changed your stance since. If you actually look at your original responses to me, it was you that was insulting and demeaning. I just returned the favor. I agreed that the kid has plenty of talent on the track, and very little of that has to do with being able to ride on the street quickly and safely. I'm sure you agree with that too.
