i just thought i would take some time to thank all of the regular contributors of good info.

since i joined the site last october i've learned a ton about my bike and riding in general. i'll list a couple things to start off and add more as i go on. feel free to post any thing that you have learned from the forums.

i learned how to clean and lube my chain
learned the proper way to clutchless shift
learned about blipping the throttle on downshifts (still trying to master that)
learned why you shouldn't use lucas oil in the bike
learned about helmets and the differences
learned about the secret magnet kawi puts in the new 250's
and learned that kawasaki pwns all other bikes and that everything else is just heresay

I learn something new each and every day I sign on at KF. Sometimes they are small nuggets of insight, sometimes they are facts that completely change my thinking on a subject. And many times I am entertained while I learn from intelligent and experienced riders who also have developed a wicked sense of humor in their years of riding. I know after several months here I could never list all that I've learned, nor would I try. It's all about the journey, not the destination, right? :Burnout:

Haha! Baby Aaron learns about motorcycles.
I've learned countless things. This community is full of experience and wisdom, bigotry and idiocy. I try to give or take something positive from Kawiforums every time i log on. Otherwise there's no point in being here.

I'd say the most benificial thing i've learned from KF exclusively is that motorcycles are meant to be personalized, that your Kawasaki is a piece of you that other Kawasaki owners should respect. I've also learned to respect all riders, no matter how much their style differs from mine. That respect can be lost due to sheer stupidity however.

i learned how to get my passenger seat off.

i also learned, not to be too harsh on the new guys since we all started in the same place.
...unless they're complete idiots, and we certainly have a few. I truly enjoy the philosophers. Almost as much as I hate the chest-thumping squidly "I'm such a good rider" types.

And I learned that a lot of guys here really like boobies. :D

I have learned i spend way to much time on here, versus getting some short rides in when i can.
I also have learned i have given my PCIII map to over 30+ people saving them in the process over $6,xxx.00 total......that makes me feel good helping others

I've learned how to say "Gixxer Pride" thanks to NK and Fighting Falcon. lol

But seriously though, pretty much everything I know about my bike I picked up here or from peeps that I met thanks to this forum.

I wouldn't say I was a squid before I got on this site, but I definitely had a much more lax attitude towards gear. Now I won't get on any bike without at least a jacket, gloves, helmet, etc.
