For The Love Of The KLR
I have an opinion, you know what they say about opinions...
This forum is awesome because of the brotherhood/sisterhood of KLR lovers. It truly is a love affair we have with our bikes and the cyber friendships we develop over time. We do have a few members that are in love, not with their bikes, but being right. There is a tone to some messages that doesn't add any value to this forum. My comments are probably not adding value but the lack of tolerance people show over oil type, tires, should I change my doohicky and a host of other enhancements or adjustments to the KLR.
I guess it is a reflection of our society today but darnit, I think we can do better. Have our lives gotten so frustrating that we have to lash out at a person we will never meet just because their opinion is different? The need to be right is so powerful, we lose our maturity and start throwing stones at each other. If a person says vegetable oil works better for them than synthetic, so be it. If a person doesn't want to replace the doohickey, so be it. Some lessons are learned the hard way. When I see a post that suggests something I would never do, I don't respond, I just think to myself " that seems crazy but I hope it works out for them". I don't feel the need to tell them they are stupid. Suggestions are offered on this site, people can take the advise or not. It doesn't hurt anyone if they don't.
The world has gotten so intolerant, I know we can do better. Why can't we start the year comitted to being the example for our crazy society.
