Wow! Look at all the responses!



I swear to god, if you muzzle this guy, I'll want my money back!



Hey John, how about some writing about dirt riding?

Maybe because it's not an overpriced POS? I really really want to like Buell beacuse it's American. The XB9R is the first one I've actually seriously considered purchasing.

You've probably heard/read this hundreads of time, but I'll say it anyway, just to get the sh*it outta my head, WELCOME TO MO. The only non-porn website i subscribe to. I was one of the first few to actually subscribe to MO, and this is the best thing that had happened since then. One more time: Welcome, Good luck, Break a leg, burn some rubbers, scrap a peg, save the planet, etc

Welcome JB.

1. Nickname? How about, "3D" (3rd Degree)

2. Big Pictures? Great idea.

3. .bmp files? Bad idea: An 8x10 at only 200dpi (Minimum resolution for photo quality printing) is 9MB in RGB. Use .jpg and compress down to about 500kb. Not everyone has broadband. You will need a separate download section.

4. Printing Pictures. Copyright? Charge for them. Photographers need to buy toys too you know!



Cheers, Digital Dumma

JB welcome to MO. If possible, renew the Bittle Little Man column, please. I will now only read the articles from Motorcyclist that interest me while stand at the magazine rack in Walmart while waiting for the other half. Good luck

I've always enjoyed reading you in Motorcyclist and am very happy to see that you'll now have a bigger forum.

I felt that others followed your style of writing at your last place and it will be interesting to see how well they do without it.

Looking forward to seeing your imprint on MO.

Glad you landed so quickly.After Boehm's column last month, it was obvious that there was trouble in paridise.



Sincerely

Douglas

Default Thanks John

I find myself pretty caught up in the bitter little man side of Burns writing, but after thinking about it I need to take the opportunity to thank him. In 98 knowing little if anything about bikes I figured that it was time to do something a little different and get a bike. Needless to say I was a little swamped with the choices out there, although I had a pretty good idea as to what type of bike I wanted. the 98 zx6r caught my eye but it wasn't until after I read about your rain soaked first ride (sorry about the crash) that I made up my mind. Your honest and excellent review sent me in the right direction, and led to many happy years of riding, not to mention being forever bitten by the riding bug (not quite to the joy of my wife). Thanks for telling it as it is and keep up the excellent work.

Burns! Dude! You were right about the Futura, and you're right to come to MO! Apparently, I was right to subscribe.



On the other hand, about that Uniflite... Just kidding. Did you know that they (Uniflite) also made a lot of the river patrol boats used in Vietnam? Really. Hell-for-stout.



Back to bikes: Drop the Paxil and raise hell!

sorry to hear you left Motorcyclist; I might have to cancel my subscription. I loved "Bitter Little Man" but always suspected they were holding you back. Good luck with your future; hope it works out for you.

Out of all the magazines I read I've always looked forward to reading what Burns had to say the most. I loved the Bitter Little Man last page in Motorcylist and now that he's here at MO, well, what more could you ask for? Hope Burns can stay out of the poor house. At least he gets to ride bikes all day! Can't seem to conjure up to much pity. Good to see ya Burns!
