LOL! They're the WORST!
I gave up on those a while back. I got so much flak off one for restoring a 78 Honda CT90. Things like it's a waste of money that could have been spent on a real bike, and why would you want a 90cc bike anyway... things like that. Funny is the Honda Cub family (which the CT90 is part of) is the most sold vehicle in the world... Yea that's why, and this thing is a blast to ride!
And on the opposite side of the spectrum, on an adventure bike forum, they loved the CT90, but I got tired of all the wining about the new CT125 that didn't have the low range, and how bad this was or that was and those people complaining about all that had never even put their butt on the seat of one. Those who actually got lucky enough to get one of the first batch loved them. So yea I left there too... for different reasons all together.
I generally hate discussing politics anyway. I often wonder why so many of my retired friends have decided to take up anger as their old age, retirement hobby. Model railroading still suits me just fine, thanks, and I am looking forward to having more time to partake.
<chuckle> I resemble that....
Amen, and a belated 'attaboy' to Boxcab!
I know this is a old thread, but with things going on around the world i think it needs to be brought back to remind us that this is not the place for politics. I already have stopped going to another site that was supposed to be a model railroad site but has changed there subject matter. It was down to 2 of us doing anything with trains or railroading. my other model railroader friend is switching sites as well. Model railroading is a hobby, and some cases an escape from what is going on out there. I think that is what is needed! No bashing allowed here. Just my too cents, off the soap box. Now back to more model railroading.
To much talk of war on another site brought to here with my very good friend Dan [Ole smokey] lets hope I don't need to leave here
If we can live our fantasies of steam locomotives pulling intermodal container cars in this hobby, then surely there's plenty of room for a world absent the horrors of war.
