Okay, but does anyone else feel like the old timers on this site have left?
If this site is all about flushmounts and fender eliminators, wouldn't really knowledgeable people decline to comment on those topics. Ever notice the second a topic on suspension comes up, Zenodamper chimes in. Or fuel mapping, Birdman chimes in. Of course you get backprotector questions and License2ill pastes a shitt load of info. If you ask a question about flushmount blinker resistors you will get 20 experts on the subject.
How about this post: https://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=43326
Only 10 posts responding to an engine builder who has built an engine that puts out over 135 rwhp! Did everyone just miss this post?
///another turnsignal rant////
I personally don't understand how a newer rider can spend hundreds of dollars on turnsignals and FE kits when they can get a nice steering damper. I myself have done just about every mod to my bike, but one thing I won't do is touch is the turnsignals. Clear lenses work fine for me. And my bike looks trick even with the stockers. Just about everything on my bike has a performance purpose including the turnsignals.
You won't se any negative comments by me in someones flushmount turnsignal thread, but you will see positive comments when someone asks about the clear turnsignal lenses w/ amber bulbs for the stock signals. Someone is actually using their brain! I laugh when I hear someone with greggs flushmounts has left the resistor off because they like the way the signals blink fast. It gets drivers attention in downtown Chicago. WTF? You can't see those signals from 10 feet away. Why does it make a difference if they blink fast or not if the drivers can't see them anyway?

FYI, the quote that started this post was from this guy:
You would think that he would frequent this site regularly, yet he is not even a member on here.
I will always like this site because I have met great friends and I have learned a lot of stuff on here. The direction that this site is going is beyond anyones control. Cosmetic mods and performance mods are only a small part of what goes on around here. 600rr.net is like a big family and I respect that. PVD's comment hit a soft spot with me because I like this site so much. I just thought I would bring it up for discussion. Feel free to reflect as I have... One way or another this site will go on even if it does filter out the racers and include more wires and LED's... ;)
