Many foolishly believe they can control what someone else is going to do. Forum, sub-forum or not, bla, bla, bla . . . people are going to do what they are going to do. If they want to talk politics, it is going to happen. Prohibition does not work--not with alcohol, not with sex, not with drugs, not with rock'n'roll, not with guns, not with speech . . . And for some, prohibition makes the activity more desirable.

Live and let live.

Read it again friend, nowhere does it say that, who I voted for is my business alone, laugh or choke I don't care what you do. I'm angry about this guys post for one reason only. I've seen other BMW motorcycle sites go down in flames over politics for no reason. Keep it the **** outta here. I enjoy this site for technical information and discussions about K1600's that's why I donated money to help pay the server bill, not to talk politics.

You are correct, I read it wrong, I deleted the post. My apologies.

Y'all are just lucky that AOC isn't yet 35, as that possibility would really mess with your brains.

Is it 2028 yet?
Ken, Ken, Ken, you need to check yourself in to a rehab facility immediately, your derangement syndrome has reached another level.

It's just egos bashing against each other, and some choose to take it more personally than others. Which is really too bad.

I'd still ride with any of y'all, but I'm sure not slowing down just so some of y'all can catch up... [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.k1600forum.com/forum/images/smilies/K16.gif[/IMG]
Well that’s good but there’s WILL come a day where that will change. Be careful, I’ve been in enough bar fights over stupidness and like I said I always try and deescalate. I only threaten or fight when needed and you can think I’m egotistical or not, I can’t kill someone. This pettiness is not worth it.

Just be careful and don’t think it’s all just threats will no real risk. That’s all.

Signed you’re concerned k1600 board cousin.

👍😬

Had 2014 gtl premium spring 17 - winter 2019 (rode 25k miles). Bought used Wing to try out (10k miles), Nah-too boring and slow. Like GTL better, bought another GTL. Ha.

I'll take him at his word and give him the benefit of the doubt. He says I read it wrong, e.g. he wasn't implying Clinton was a better choice than Trump. I'll leave it at that.
