I try never to use links except when I feel I need backup to some claim I'm making. I very rarely click on any links here, either..even the ones in "Hottie of the day".

You don't miss too much; just the wiggling action. LOL

You could have listed them here, but you chose not to.

I am going to downvote your content, and suggest everyone else here do the same.

Screw your youtube channel.

"Lighten up, Francis."

The guy likes Sportsters. Isn't that enough? I didn't hear you whining when he did the 10 things I like about Sportsters. Are you one of those people who rides a completely stock bike?

Yes; the complaint about there being so many ways to alter your bike, was onr of the things, but it was a tongue in cheek complaint and not serious.

I don't do Farcebook or Twatter or any of that "Social" crap, but after reading this thread, I think I'll go give him a thumbs up, if I can figure out how to.

He's from Toronto. Technically he's on lockdown right now so this is his outlet for social interaction.

I downvoted his other video too.

If he wants to discuss things on the forum, great!

However, he is just using this forum to drive traffic to his YouTube page.

Screw that.

At the same time I don't come to a web forum to get someone's links posted, I come here for information in as direct a form as possible.
Also bad: web articles that have multiple pages forcing me to click on the next page and shoving more ads down my throat.
I feel that if someone is using the forum to generate revenue with a video, then that is more akin to advertising, not a "post".

Agreed, when I say I don't mind someone attempting to monetize their YT channel I don't mean by creating a new thread on a forum.
