and you felt obligated to come over here and whine about it?
Back in the day before digital tuning, we'd fine tune the signal with the little ring around the channel changer dial. ADVRider has some excellent content you will not find anywhere else. You just have to filter out the noise.
Here is my Rx:
Pick and choose the ride reports.
Spend lots of time in the Regional Forums
Use the wrenching forums for informational purposes only
Ignore Jo Momma. It might be good for entertainment, but nothing "good" happens there.
I saw the videos this morning - good way to start out my work day.
It sucks that they banned you (this is the second banning I've heard of that sounds rather unwarranted), though I find it a little funny that you complained over here, when we usually see people from here complaining over there. Not that I find the banning itself funny, mind you.
I agree some of the ride reports have gone downhill. There are a few good ones, but I started to get tired of searching for those when a certain persons high profile "adventure ride" consisted of drinking a lot, being escorted place to place, attempts at debauchery, and staying with other members with the very occasional camping. I didn't see any adventure in that. I still like browsing through and finding the good ones, but there are other sites you can read stuff on - HU for example.
But it has gotten a bit much since about a million n00bs have invaded and decided that the hug is the greatest human achievement.
p.s. Mike, as far as the banning goes, nips get you banned. Period. Those are the rules, however arbitrary they might seem.
On the flipside, we had people here offended by the photo of a woman's back.
We should start our own forum and call it -a name I can't repeat here-.

Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
Change happens - get used to it.
So, your definition of an Adventure ride is a big enduro bike and camping out?
