    The phenomenon that occurs when someone becomes a badass when addressing others on a message board. It is a common practice for the reticent, meek, and cowardly to make bold statements on the Internet, knowing there is no way to be held accountable.

    Updated 2.1

    Please do not use racist slurs on this forum.

    Updated 4.4 and added 4.7

    4.4 Now includes vendors / sponsors. Please conduct yourself in a respectful manner especially when posting in a vendor section. Think of a vendor area as their store, also keep in mind without our sponsors / vendors we might not have a site at all. If you have an issue with a vendor / sponsor please let us know and we will try to help sort it out. This does not mean that we will only take a vendor's side on matters.

    4.7 Self explanatory

    Well then, color me confused. I thought I was just looking out for the site, and feeling like somebody was just coming in to use this site for exactly that 5.5 rule. I kinda feel let down here to be honest with you.

    But hey, I guess you got to be a regular schmoe that probably doesn't even have a bike to come in and spam the boards with your "wholesale lots" of phones...or whatever. Cause if your a biker selling biker related goods for a loss, you gotta become an "approved power seller".
    I have helmets, jackets and other stuff for sale in the classifieds section
    If the link doesn't work, just look in the classifieds section
