No one was insulting or mean in any fashion. If all he wanted was for us to tell him what he wanted to hear he's come to the wrong place. I'm sure there are plenty of boards where he can find the opinions he likes.

If he wants to hear BS it its purest form, I think gixxer.com would fill the bill for him.

I know, but have you ever noticed how many people come on here ask one question then never return?

Yes I have. All it means is that you have people who want free advice but aren't interested in contributing one bit of their own effort. Sort of like you see out in real life. Far too many seem to think that they shouldn't have to contribute to get something in return.

I personally like the ones that start-out to do just that, then are insulted or irritated at the replies they get, and become indignant and outraged, then "lash-back" at those that offered advice/opinions. Then leave.

Frankly, I think some of these posters simply want all the other small brains to exclaim "Duuuuuude! You're so rad!" and fawn all over them, rather than get any real advice.

Although the answers are forthright, I think being a tad nicer would yield alot more regular participants to the website.

I think some are embaressed to ask certain questions, but when they do get enough courage to come on here and ask, we treat them like an imbecile for even doing so. Not all of them, but a good portion.

Everyone here has mass experience, and should use it more responsibly me included.

They are each very enticing, however I'm not sure on which one I should go with. They each have pros and cons. The new crossplane crankshaft of the R1 definitely kindles my interest and I love the aesthetics. However, I'm told if I'm looking for raw power, the Ninja is the way to go.

Perhaps it is too soon to tell which is best, some specs haven't even been released as of yet.
Any advice is much appreciated.

Cheers fellas'
