Not to mention bad mouthing Greg Frazier on several occaisions.

He has also been known to harass and divulge private information about members on the site. Even so much as posting private family photos of Subscribers, and detailed information of their lives.
This guy is an outright "creep".
cliffy

you are a liar

and you have been banned from ADV at least three times for misconduct, none by me

I have enormous respect for HU and am a long time fan. The tone of HU is very different than Jo Momma over on ADV and out of respect for HU and a total lack of concern about your opinion on anything I will not participate in an argument with you here

You're damn right you won't argue with me here.
Because you know this community won't stand for it. This is community for an international audience. Right wing, neoconservative content doesn't have a place here.
Go back to Advrider and you can badmouth anyone from here that you want.
You know damn well that you have badmouthed and bashed this site, as well as it's members.
You may be a moderator on the Advrider site,
but the HU site doesn't fuction on the same low level of intellect you are used to. You are out-smarted and out numbered in the real world.

Your internet-gang of buddies aren't here to back you up in a forum where insults and ignorance are encouraged.

Why is it, when someone calls you out into the schoolyard for a one on one confrontation you always back down, But in front of an audience you can't stop your mouth from running off?
Your response to any kind of opposition is to ban them from your site?
Somebody who objects to your name-calling and ignorance gets them banned by your peer Admins?

You know you have bashed this site and some of it's contributors on several occaisions, I've read it.
Don't make me go digging for it.

Now go back to ADVrider, and play Admin-overlord to "your" audience.
One more thing, IF you EVER post photos of my family again, without my consent...

That could be it, I know that I have had a bit of trouble posting photos to this site (in all fairness though, I will admit the I am not all that great with posting photos on my mac).

There is no right or wrong here. The best thread I ever read (without all the snide/profanity, too, believe it or not) was on ADVrider, from a guy who rode through China, from Thailand, on a Chinese enduro. In fact, his first bike he bought used, broke down too much, and he sold it for a better, new one, which only added to my interest. He had many photos, and lots of characters involved.

HUBB is easier to find information, I think.

Again, there is no "winner" here, but rather two "winners" depending on what you feel like wading through.

Hahahaa, 2 guys from ADV come here to fight! What happened, both banned from ADV? (OK, that was a joke, don't try to explain)

But seriously guys, forget what you did in ADV and start here with clean page, not with some crappy fighting.

I am open to that,
hey everyone I apologize if I am getting everyone kind of "riled up" around here. That is not my intention, and please don't be offended if I call this guy out. It's not my intention to bring trouble to this forum.

I just won't put up with this one specific individual's BS.
Yes we do have the right to free speech, however if one disagrees with someone they certainly have the same right to call someone on it. Wouldn't you agree Albert?
I am sure you are a pretty fair person, and I am pretty sure that you wouldn't ban them from your website for having a difference of opinion right?


This is a great site with an open minded group of international contributors. The difference between the two sites seems to be perhaps the greater practice of civility among it's readers.
(although I realized I may have come dangerously close in this case).

Advrider...
dare I say it? The novelty of looking at photo's of people "flipping off" the camera has gotten a bit stale for me lately.
Pictures of big plates of copious amounts of greasy food, domestic , and firearms are not my idea of a good time. (Maybe it's just because I am from Canada, I don't know).

I have attended one of the first HU meetings held here in western Canada, and made some fantastic friends. Heard some great stories, and laughed my arse off. I can't wait to have the chance to go again.
For the record, nobody was carrying a handgun, and nobody was doing wheelies while screaming "George Bush is my hero".

There are some great people over there, some people post some great content on that site. However I think the best content tends to come from people who travel outside of the USA.

Peanuts?
I like chocolate covered almonds actually, although peanuts shelled and salted with a good frosty beverage is pretty tasty.
(Peanut is my little girl's nickname, she's two years old).

Looks to me like you're the only one slinging insults and ignorance in this thread.
And who appointed you censor to judge whether "right wing, neoconservative content" has a place on this forum or not?
In case you don't realize it, you are coming across as a total hypocrite.

Gentelmen, I fail to understand why you feel the need to conduct your problems here I'm sure you could do it via email ( or down the pub )and leave this thread for constuctive feed back so Grant & Susan can see what the members of HU and ADV for that matter would like this site to offer !

Many Thanks
Pete
