The banter is fun and playful


We are a serious group of satire. Sure we give good answers, but you get what is given and it an't always the truth, still we honestly give it our best. We also give good advice, but the answers we give reflect the same satire found above.

As far as DragonGal, she has been practicing hard and is one of our most outspoken members. To be totally fair she did not see the banter between Tims96, BrenYota and Lv. before she read what Tims96 wrote about her and saw the content of the picture, which seemed at the time really mean. Once she saw the playfulness and the intent, she joined in too.

What some may not realize is, Tims96 had been talking with her in the back-ground. He also has been talking to her again and she now realizes we are all just welcoming her back into the group.

I can tell you she does not need to be protected, she is strong enough to stand up for her rights and is not afraid to speak her mind.

You are going to be a great member. I can tell by your bike, it has your attitude, so join in and have fun. Just take it slow till everyone gets to know you and soon you will find the magic that makes this forum FUN and educational. You can contribute and we will all listen. You can take and no one will care. Feed us knowledge, we are hungry, or bring us some good humor.

We have at least one of everything here, so try and figure us out. We are a book that can be read from front to back, top to bottom, side to side and in between. We have one thing in common. We LOVE the Rebel. It is not the only thing we love, but we do love all things Rebel.

Bring up an old thread, we LOVE it. Start up a new thread, we LOVE it.

We thank you for sharing your bike and a piece of your life, but we all want more, when you are ready to give it.

Now, for those that tire quickly, just ignore the threads that annoy you.
I don not always follow my advice, but it is my advice anyways..

Welcome once again. If we act like Red Necks, it is because some of us are. It won't take long to figure it out.

Ferrarimx5, Thanx for this info........I have to get in motion early to get ready for a busy weekend, but don't want to put this off.

I wasn't aware of the part quoted below and could only go by what I was reading on the boards:

***"What some may not realize is, Tims96 had been talking with her in the back-ground. He also has been talking to her again and she now realizes we are all just welcoming her back into the group."***

Tims96.......It looks like I was wrong and it appears that you may have been trying to help DragonGal thru whatever she may be dealing with. If I was wrong, then I acknowledge that and can only offer you my sincerest apologies for my mis-reading of info. You're entitled to an apology and I'm offering that to you here. It's your's to accept or decline, but it is being offered without hesitation and I bear you no ill will.

My apologies to you, Tims96 and my apologies to the forum for the unpleasantries of yesterday......Ride Safe.........(please forgive, but I honestly DO have some important things on the local level that I've got to attend to and soon, so I may not be able to check back until later).

Truly, no apology is needed. I should have made the joke more obvious. I will work on my delivery. Im glad that you stepped . It is nice to know that members are willing to stick-up for one another. I would hate to think I ran DragonGal off. I hope to here from her and hope she comes back. Tim

I tend to think of us a Family... a forum family.... so, you will always have some that joke, jab and tease each other...
I think too, now that it i winter and some of us under snow we can't ride, which for most of us, if not all, is a way we work of the day in day out tensions of work and the in the flesh family...

We are like a family getting together at the holiday... which means there's gonna be a few nuts.... Just kidding... I do feel we are a forum family... just could help the nut comment... LOL

You can't step into the same flowing river twice....

My sentiments as well.
Some of us love to kid around. Others, not so much. Sometimes it just depends on the mood an individual is in for the day. With respect for one another, the conversation can stay fun as well as productive.
I like the way Thomas Jefferson put it: "Difference of opinion will arise from difference of perception, and the imperfection of reason"
With courtesy we can have those differences and as Jefferson said:
"these differences are but as passing clouds overspreading our land transiently, and leaving our horizon more bright and serene."

I know, I can administer each member a short personality test that will give an indication of thinking style and let every one know what cognitive errors we make that get us in trouble. I have Chicken Little syndrome. Let me know, it is fun and help you be able to make fun of your self (most of the time) Lv the LPCC Doc Student

I agree with what was written by Ferrarimx5. This is a great forum and a lot of good answers are given in the hope of helping someone to figure out a problem. Some of the advice is tinged with a bit of humor or maybe sarcasm and that is a great thing. Some people need to get a thicker skin.
