Feeling lost? Have a question you think is too stupid to post? Sick of people calling you a squid?:confused:

Easy Solution:rolleyes:

Ask your M.O.M. or D.A.D.:D

M.O.M (Motorcycle Owners Manual) Details on maintaining your bike, tire pressure, oil grade, chain tension, ect..... awe MOM... you always know the answers!;)
Let's not forget about D.A.D. (Dealer And Distributor) Part numbers, oil filters, gaskets, servicing, accessories, chain lube, cleaning products, ect..... thanks again DAD!:cool:

Nicely put; a lot of though gone into those few words.

It has been suggested by various others using various words, but I suspect seldom heeded by more than a few (dare I use the word) squids. Maybe Mongoose's humour will be taken more seriously.

Ahhh... now I gotcha.... and yes... very true. It is "easier" for people to get on here and ask dumb and obvious questions when they have the answer a few pages away but are too lazy to read.:rolleyes:

This is not just a Gen Y thing...

I have a friend who purchased a computer for his business years ago. Every time he had a question, he pick up the phone and call me (I'm a programmer). After the umpteenth call, we had the following exchange:

Me: "are you sitting in front of the computer?"
Him: "yes"
Me: " See the numeric keypad on the right"
him: "yes"
Me: "put your right hand on the keypad..."
him: "ok"
Me: "Now reach down 10 inches below the keyboard, pull out the grey binder, AND READ THE G**D**N THING!"

He'd still call me after that, but at least he'd try to look it up first....

The point of the thread is merely to read the manual or ask a dealer before asking stupid or obvious things. Most people who post crap like "what grade oil should i use" or "what pressure should my tires be" are just too lazy or ignorant to look in the manual before asking someone else to do their research for them. Then you got people that ask questions knowing their way or idea is wrong that are simply looking for another idiot to reinforce their stupid idea.
example:
Person A "Is it ok to aim the head light x amount of height from the ground"
30 people chime in and say "no, that's illegal, unnecessary, stupid, ect"... but then one fellow moron.... person B... will chime in and say "awe man... your fine... the manual says not to but that's just a conspiracy from Honda to align the planets and cause global domination from the aliens on Gurlock 9". So then person A will aim the headlight like person B said to just cause 1 person is on his side..... despite the obviously retarded reasoning.

Wait. Are you saying there is no conspiracy from Honda to align the planets and cause global domination from the aliens on Gurlock 9"?

If not Gurlock 9 then who??

Seriously though, I like the MOM & DAD thing. Very witty. It makes me wish we had a "thumbs up" emoticon.
