Re: Is it worth it

Man, here I am trying to do a bit of catching up on thread reading since I was gone for so long, and after reading this one, I can't not complain about the headache it literally gave me. Some of you are probably going to hate be for refreshing it, but if I have to suffer, you have to also.

CBR929RE, after reading your posts...dude, you are the last one that should be criticizing anyone for their grammar.

I didn't say that so don't put the words into my mouth. Someone here said one of DK's workers doesn't like the RaceTech stuff, so me and him might happen to have the same opinion, its the same opinion whether its first hand experience or word of mouth. I never gave a review of them so my opinion should just be taken in to look at later after someone comes in with a full review. Say you get 2 really good reviews, one praises the product and the other completely bashes it. Now the only other info you have is a short comment saying on is bad. So I would look at it in an educated manner first before jumping all over someones back. Reviews of products both good and bad happen and get spread around, deal with it. You people argueing with me about it are not going to change it.

I will admit that yes I was rude in how I first responded to Baketech and have already apologized for calling him a name. If you think that I presented my arguements in a rude manner that's your opinion and you're welcome to it.
I simply asked that you not respond rudely to me, and you have been so kind as to be polite.
I share your interest in getting to the facts,but I am very reluctant to repeat what others say, even when it backs up my experience. For there are lots of people out here who write **** just for fun and that can cause me and others problems when I have a bike failure and do not know quite how to handle it. Believe me that a career in engineering has convinced me that only that which is proven is worthwhile.
So thank you for your reasoned reply, and forgive me for suggesting that when you make an apology-just do it-and forget the self justification. No one minds a genuine mistake so it is not necessary to always be even partially right. Ask my dear lady!!!!!!!!!

How did I miss all of this... I'm sure I could have made this into a bigger argument... Dangit!!!!

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.
