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! ::)

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?

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.
keep your bike running,your beer cold ,and your passport handy.all are like money in the bank .

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!

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?

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

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.

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

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.
