That's just tweaking.

Harassment is different.

See, this is why liberals can't govern!
Not a forum member? What the heck does that mean? By God I was on MO when it was 2400 baud modems and green phosphor text!

I'm watching Claude Rains slowly poison Ingrid Bergman in "Notorious.". She just figured it out when Alex grabbed her cup away from another stinking Nazi who was going to take a sip

I was talking about the pics you put on the Strom forum. You're 0-for-2.

Ingrid Bergman. Yum. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

"Forums." "Memberships." Your modern world frightens and confuses me. I'm just an un-frozen cave-man lawyer. These "cell-phones;" are there tiny demons inside speaking to me? I don't know. But I do know that when a forum like the one at Motorcycle.com can't support it's built-in feature of simple, low-resolution photo uploads from it's paying members, that's an actionable failure to meet implied contractural obligations created when Vertiscope accepted those member's fees. The liability for damages and punitive compensation could easily extend into six-figures; high six-figures when attorney fees are considered. Nobody wants to see this issue come to litigation, but perhaps that's all that will get the attention of the management.

This thread is worthless without pics!

PS. Congrats on the new bike! Or haven't you picked it up yet? See .. if I could see the pics, I might be able to figure that out, since I'm assuming at least one pic would show you with your bike and a big smile on your face.

Congradulations K K Ken, new bikes are fun, specially when thy are crate fresh, their seats unsullied by the sweaty asses of lookee-loos and wanna-bes, grips untouched by the great unwashed, (God knows where their hands have been) nary a flake of dust or human detrius to tarnish the lovingly applied factory candy apple paint....Ahh, lucky you my friend. Not only a new bike but the first b*tchin' ass Honda worth owning in a long time....

You are SO right. I've owned a lot of bikes, but this is the third I bought brand new. The others were a VFR and the DL1000.

This one is by far the best. It has the retro panache of my '77 Low Rider, but in a package of Honda quality and tech. The engine is the smoothest I've ever ridden, with the possible exception of a Gold Wing flat six. They say its only 80-some hp, but even being ridden in break-in mode it feels like a lot more. Perhaps that's due to its "2-seat sports car" design; without all the bodywork, luggage, windscreen, etc. All I know is that it reminds me of when I traded in a Honda Element for my Mini. Both great cars, but I never jumped out of bed early to take the Element out for a drive.

Luckily I'm off till Monday, its cool and sunny out, and I don't have anything else to do.

Enjoy your new engine cycle!

Email a few pics to me and I'll post them for you since our strange and bizarre picture posting regimen seems to elude you.

My Element is ideal, especially since I removed the passenger seats in the back. Go somewhere with my two big dogs? Check. With my gf and two mountain bikes and a cooler? Check. Need to haul a couch or some bricks? Check. So I'm not trading it in for a Mini anytime soon (ever).

I have a ZX10R for the other thing. Or one of my other bikes.

I do admit, however, that my gf would love it if I had a Mini in addition to the Element.

Glad you like your CB.
