    Yes please! Oh! That wasn't a question?

    Search before you post!

    I've been around here since the start(more or less) of this website and I've seen the same freakin' questions asked by every single new guy that came along. That's such a waste of time and bandwdth. I suggest to the admin they introduce a new feature. When you click the "Create New Thread" button, a notice/question should pop up and say: " The question you are about to ask might have already been answered 4 milion times. Did you do a search? Please try that first! Thank you! Come again!"
    That way, we'll all be spared the agony of having to look at yet another "How do you wheely?" or"What's a good bigginer bike?"
    or "I was doing 300 in school zone. You think I should fight the ticket?" question, that aparently is/are on every new riders mind.
    I didn't do a search to see if anyone has already suggested this but that's because suggesting it again couldn't hurt!

    The problem is, everyone things they have a different slant.

    And it's not all bad I don't think. For instance, when I was shopping for a pipe... I found that each thread about a pipe brought a little bit more information that was really the closer on what I ended up going with.

    So multiple threads on the same topic arn't neccessarily a bad thing. Althuogh some threads we could do without.. the more open/shut ones - rather than the 'opinion' ones.

    It's all about educating the masses Flo.

    Isn't this how forums work? I mean with enough time, we are going to cover almost every topic. And if we all just read what was already posted.. then us post whores wouldnt have anything else to read all day long... at work.

    This may well be the same reason why others start threads without searching for previous similar threads. Although, more than likely, it never occurred to them to search. Oh well.

    Good Luck and Godspeed!

    - how to wheelie
    - help passing your road test
    - how to lube yer chain
    - should i fight this ticket?
    - what's a good starter bike?
    - where do i find leather jackets?
    - penis goes in vagina??
    - etc.
