This is... more or less kind of a public forum in that, if you act in a civilized
manner, you can stay. There are a lot of opinions here from people
having a wide range of backgrounds and experience. Not everyone will
agree with what you have posted. Sometimes folks can get nasty.
If they get too nasty, too frequently... well...
If receiving an incredibly wide range of opinions on your post is not for you,
well, no one is forcing you to stay here.

This forum was invaluble for me when deciding which model would be my first Harley. I don't post or comment as a rule because I have nothing useful to contribute but I sure am glad I can come here when I need to.

And your are WELCOME at THE FORUM!

Not everyone gets all excited about minor stuff. Most of us are into discussing bikes and helping each other out!
