Hu bar boring old crap

Why don,t we have some interesting topics of conversation on here like some other ADV sites have or is this site completely occupied by boring old farts on BMW who don,t like bad behavior or driving fast cos they might upset someone.This page must just be boring old Brits,where are the mouthy Yanks or the pissy Europeans.

On a Roll

Albert,

You are on a roll. You must be throwing back a few pints tonight.

Keep throwing someshit against the wall - something will stick.

Good luck.

point

I think you,re missing my point,the point being that this part of the Hubb is vastly under used and if the only way to get you boring old farts going is to piss on you a bit then so be it.Oh and just so you know I,m now also in Colombia with more guns,dogs and stunning self portraits and I drove my bike up here and did a country wide tour,it,s almost as exciting as a weekend in Kirby lonsdale!!!

You rely want to start a ADVrider jommama like stuff here? OK here you go.
guns are good all was have a few with you.
BMW are to slow.
no orange bike is worth the price.
trailer your bike to a nice spot then rip it up.
if your not drinking your not riding.
Hate people that are not just like you then hate them because they are like you.
Id post pics of cats and almost naked women but it eats up bandwith so I wont.

So lets all swear and put up photos of cats and naked wimmin Woo-Hoo!!!

Funny this, just noticed other Hubbers actively watching this thread - waiting for someone to say something profound/contraversial! Ok then,... "Bibble"!!

Oh yes

Yesterday I meet with a guy who posts here in Medellin and gave him info on Colombia Ecuador and Peru,then a little later a guy mails me about tyres in Quito and just now I put him onto a guy for a reasonably priced Galapagos trip.Then another poster here asks me to be a reference for a University trip he,s planning in South America and finally on Advrider a gal who wants a service and some tyres for her Klr when she gets to Quito.
I would have to ask Caminando other than whinge about me what have you done for the motorcycling community today.

That's what it's all about and what people in the HUBB appreciate most. Starting threads that have only one purpose ; to antagonise others isn't what it's about , so why not stick to what you are good at and for what folks will appreciate you for instead of some of this other rubbish you have been starting lately
