Title: Bike Babes
Post by: Prophet Of Doom on October 31, 2012, 05:13:40 AM
This is the only motorcycle forum on the internet that doesn't have lots of pictures of bike babes.
What's with that?

This is a lot of woman for one bike to handle

Is this what you were talking about roro ?????

Ps ,,To every one else on the forum [ this is a joke no more complaints to Ron as I do not wish to be sent to the naughty corner for a month]

Iain - you should be banned for that.

Actually what I had in mind was more like this:

heh, now you're just stealing them from another board.  ok w/me,  just sayin...  ;)

Actually what I had in mind was more like this:

I'm totally ok with a babes section, is that what everyone wants ?  should I take a poll ?

lets do it!
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: Prophet Of Doom on November 05, 2012, 01:43:38 PM
I think it's a great idea. Babes and bikes go together.
A separate section allows people to remain work safe if they need to by not going in there.

Maybe add a couple of rules about what crosses the line of decency, or you will get people like ME posting all sorts of objectionable material ???

You may consider me old and stodgy but there are many OTHER PLACES on the internet where one can see just about anything imaginable, so why bring it all here???  This site, as far as I am concerned, is a motorcycle site dedicated to the XZ Yamahas, to keeping them running, modifying them, trading parts, diagnosing problems, educating folks, and relating interesting rides and events.  $.02

I imagine this will elicit some adolescent remarks and jeers from some but I know there are others that quietly agree.

not-so-silently agreeing with fret nut myself...

I'm not knocking pics of hot babes or anything, but I come here when I'm in deep concentration on some puzzle that's been rolling around in my head at work all day. Last thing I need is a distraction! ::)
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: Prophet Of Doom on November 09, 2012, 01:06:50 AM
I'm a bit puzzled about the last few posters who "say" that they don't want to see bike babes, but merrily romp into a thread clearly labeled "Bike Babes" zoom in on the pics, and then get outraged when there is a babe to be seen.

Am I the only one who sees something contrary with this?
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: calipanda on November 09, 2012, 10:06:47 AM
if i may add my 2 cents...

for as long as i can remember babes and cars/bikes have always gone well together. this is a bike forum, and mostly for technical issues..but we also have threads for off-topic conversations. I do not see why there is so much opposition to creating a new thread. I get onto this forum everyday, just about, and usually scroll through most of the different threads. Personally, adding one more thread is just another something to do/talk about in this forum. this is a members-only site, so its not like adding a bike babes thread would bring in a bunch of pervs/trash (at least not anymore! JK ;). For those who do not want to look at the babes, dont go to the thread!

Oh jeeze guys, make a mountain out of a molehill why don't you... This site is primarily about the XZ550 and the issues we have with keeping them on the road.
We should not allow anything that is  going to hinder  this aim.
Is the discourse about our V's going to be curtailed because there happens to be a thread with bikes and babes?

NO it's not... so please, let's not fight... its a FORUM.... we can make room for a thread with bikes and babes

Why don't you simply put it to a vote? Start a poll...
Then submit the results to Ron. It's ultimately his decision...

i am okay any way you guys chose. but remember,, a little peeking in the mirror will remind the majority of us that " people that live in glass houses,,,,,,,"
 as far as girls pictured with bikes,, no problem, if they are actually girls that can ride the bike they pose with. 90 percent or so of the "oh boy " girls can not /do not /and will not ,ride a bike .  Been to the trade shows a few times, most wont even sit on the seat-- just stand by a bike and act like Kelly Bundy.

Fiatracer invited me to a calendar shoot that involves women in bikinis and my vision a few weeks back, but I believe that anyone with a bike could attend. It was also suppose to be a group ride from the Oregon coast to Seattle.  I opted in if my bike is ready.  As far as the issue at hand, I don't care either way, I'm young and of coarse like babes, but we don't really need that stuff
On here for any soul purpose but to perv..... So I guess, for me, unless it
Is a vision and a babe it shouldn't be on here. And obviously no nudity!
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: Hartless on November 15, 2012, 07:20:30 PM
Well it seems we already have a site that people are very well spoken about their beliefs on, sometimes disrespectfully... Cough cough. And if you don't like something that's fine, but don't disrespect everyone on here by being a jerk about it. FYI, the calendar I'm talking about is a coffee barista calendar, not a porno. And please don't bring your family into the matters. And no I'm not trying to argue , just make a point

I agree with Lucky.  Put it to a vote (poll).  IMHO,  If you don't agree with the babes, then dont visit the thread.

My vote is a seperate thread for "Babes on Bikes." 
Actually, I clicked the poll tab for "I could give a shit."  Honestly, I enjoy being here at ROV for the issues relevant to Vison.

Perhaps a thread of "Babes with Vision" is in order?
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: fret not on November 18, 2012, 03:40:32 PM
Have any of you thought about potential female members of the site and how they might feel about this?  I think the few that were here may well have left because of the over the line avatars, remarks, and insensitivity to their presence.  By having BIKE BABES you probably guarantee an all male membership, unless some gay gals become interested.  Is that what you really want?  Just sayin'.

I reckon I want be here much longer, I created a poll that was fair to all ROVer's and someone came in and removed it and left this biased piece of crap that pretends to be a poll. I don't want to be associated with a forum that stoops to levels as trashy as this. I'm not positive but think I see greed raising its ugly head.     BDC
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: Prophet Of Doom on November 18, 2012, 06:45:42 PM
I changed it - not Ron, and no greed involved.

I was merely pointing out - not very subtly  - that when you say that you want to limit content to only what you find acceptable, then you are being oppressive.  This is a motorcycle forum not a church group.  In the motorcycle community babes are acceptable.  Live with it.

Post by: Re-Vision on November 18, 2012, 09:26:19 PM
I'l live without it Roro, my apologies to admin. My objections to Bike Babes are not religious but stem from a desire to respect the dignity of women and the men who care about their daughters, sisters. wives, and mothers.    BDC
Title: Re: Bike Babes
Post by: admin on November 18, 2012, 09:55:48 PM


heh, I hadn't seen the poll ( until now of course ) but I can say with a fair amount of certainty
that it's probably not going to happen,  however in the interest of fairness to all those
who think it's important, I've gathered a couple of links for you.

here:  http://lmgtfy.com/?q=porn+sites
and here:  http://www.redtube.com/
or this one: http://bit.ly/w5cBNX
that should be enough to keep anyone occupied...

enjoy gentlemen.
peace.

I did not know that anyone could change a poll started by another?

...when you say that you want to limit content to only what you find acceptable, then you are being oppressive.  This is a motorcycle forum not a church group.  In the motorcycle community babes are acceptable.  Live with it.

Bit of a double edged sword in that expanding content to align with your tastes may seem oppressive to others. Even if one doesn't avail themselves to that thread, the forum has been changed - some will see it as a positive change but not all.

I don't think babes and bikes are intrinsically linked but rather a matter of personal opinion. I also see allowing such content potentially being a continual struggle to monitor as some may wish to push the envelope.  Where do you draw the line as to suitability? One person's PG13 may be another's R.  :o

As far as driving women away... In the US women constitute 15-20% of the motorcycling community. As of this moment active participation by women at the ROV seems to be at 0%. I don't think women have been kept away by our behavior but rather a desire to enjoy a ride, not because they enjoy working on their ride.  :(  They are probably purchasing something newer and turn-key. :D Just my 2 cents.

Much as I was mesmerised (and enjoyed!) Roro's infamous rear view, it is refreshing that this site is a cut above the rest. Its great to be able to share info and the same room with the wife and kids without apologising or reinforcing stereotypes available elsewhere. I'm with Fret Nut.
