I think I got the right stuff - but I may have applied it to the wrong spot...

I didn't see any member requests for the previously nice forum to be bollocksed up by the new owners. It was unceremoniously foisted upon us without any consultation with the members.

However, it seems a good scheme to mess it up and then ask for donations to "fix it".

What assurances do we have that any donations will go toward fixing the unrequested damages anyway? I'm pretty damn sure that they already have a helluva lot more money than I do. Do they plan to pay me for my posts?

   They've made more than enough money off of me already. I have the receipts to prove it.    If they can offer $500 as an incentive to order even more they don't need donations to fix something they screwed up.

You're "hep", which is the greybeard of "hip", roughly a magnitude of cooler than any so-called hipster. If this were Kerouac's 'On the Road', you'd be our Jack Cassidy. If anyone should be getting some swag kickbacks from this whole enterprise, you'd be one of maybe few enough to count on one of Ninefinger's hands. If it weren't for your input here, I wouldn't have any right to call my ride "reliable". So there. Thanks.
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

Thanks, Bilgemaster.

If anything that I wrote was of service to help you enjoy your motorcycle, then I am happy to have done it.

Cheers!
