Yeah...so I've been feeling more like a jerk in recent posts...I don't quite understand it. Is it because I've been riding "for a while" (or so what I concider a while) or becuase I've wised up to what riding means to me...or what...?? I dunno, but I've been feeling like I'm being a jerk-ass to a lot of people who ask very basic questions...maybe I feel like I've just answered the SAME question a million times already...but who knows...anyone esle feel this way??

Well I mean...I don't straight-up find them annoying...I just get sick of THE SAME posts OVER AND OVER AND OVER again...it's like...seriously...THE SAME posts... "How do I wheelie??" "Which exhausts look and sound the best?"..."Just bought a 600RR...how do I ride it?!!" ...feel free to chime in anyone who feels the same...

Anyone new to this site should run a basic search before they post...please? For my and anyone else's sake? PLEASE?! Good god I am no Veteran...FAR from it...but please???

The search engine works great, I normally find exactley what I'm looking for within a couple tries. Just be a little more specific when you search, do just search for "exhaust" or something basic.

Well for example: Today I was looking for how to remove the gas tank. In went "Tank removal" and out spat a cornucopia of answers, the first three pages of which yielded nothing. But, I'm glad it works for you.

Neverest if you had type your search exactly like this

tank AND removal

you would've gotten the results you are looking for. When you click on the search button read the directions to the left. It explains how to use key words like AND & OR - they have to be capitalized to work properly.

It's a good search engine, it's just different.

Once in a while the search engine does exactly what I need it too, but most of the time. . . . . forgettaboutit!

If you try typing in something like "LP Short Stalks" the majority of the search results are returning what's in their profile, not in the post.

But in any case, I can usually find what I'm lookin for, it just takes some time. :bounce:

Sorry, that last post made no sense (only two sips into my dd coffee). . .

What I meant was the search engine returns information that's contained in peoples profiles not what's in the topic or reply's.

My bad :bitchslap: .

Same suggestion for you. If you type

LP AND Short AND Stalks

exactly like that you will get hits on threads that only contain each of those words. You have to use the words AND, OR, NOT and they have to be capitalized to work.

the search works...but the responses are old. sometimes there are responses from new people or more updated responses that i would like to hear. i mean....do u have to read every post out there....just ignore it. i just pick out what i want to read or what's interesting. but i guess as a "contributing member", you have to read everything in order to contribute, so i understand ur pain. i'll do my best to search more often before asking a question.

Why do you feel compelled to reply or even read the post?

Moreover, just because something was discussed in general prior, each person has specific needs and desires.

Most of all, they want THEIR question answered.
