Exactly! Because you're not an amateur...

This thread just needs to bitch about the lack of color choices and we'll be back on track. Give the OP a dictionary too, I know he has trouble with comprehension.

Since the mods are babysitting me today,
I'm sure they're going to remove the post above, because moderation is fair and balanced around here, right?

@19s1k The tone of the forum has changed in the last month or so. You are part of the problem, not the solution. I suggest if you want to remain here then you change your tune. We don't need negative threads surrounding the new bike. Regardless of whether you approve of the BMW tune or lack there of. We don't need a damn thread complaining about it. Take it elsewhere. You are only bringing the forum vibe down. Your post regarding arguing via private messages is childish. If you don't like the forum rules. Leave. Or I can make you leave permanently. Your choice. We have tried to be fair and let everyone have a say but when it results in personal attacks or just general aggressive behavior then we will start taking action. You don't seem to contribute anything of value around here other than to whinge about something you cannot change. Its getting old.

We can go back to your first post on 1.26.19 as an example of the negative tone Benny is referencing. I’m tired of it. It doesn’t add any value. We wouldn’t have to a baby sit you if you act like a mature adult.

You are mislabeling truth and accountability as "negativity".
Funny that BMW employee that isn't affected by BMW's neutering of the American bike
( YOU ) has audacity to publicly bash me for telling the truth.

I've owned liter bikes for 19 years.
I've been following the 2020 for 2 years and did a track day on the S1k.
I made the effort to speak face to face with a top BMW executive and politely expressed the universal concerns American buyers have with the bad tune.
My cash is in hand waiting to buy a S1k.

My opinion and place here is as valid as anyone else's.
I won't be bullied or censored.
You will not silence me.
One way or another, I will not allow you to.

Don't be blind fan boi nazis like the Suzuki guys who banned 19 year members for posting the truth that BMW has replaced Suzuki as the bike to choose. Censorship is cowardly and weak.

I'm sorry you feel that way.
Although, I don't believe your portrayal is accurate.
All I'm asking is for adults to be able to practice free speech.
If you want to moderate adults, at least do it fairly and equally.
My response to Benny above says it all.
