Phil,

Welcome to the list! Stick around and you'll see what I'm like. Generally I'm VERY diplomatic, respect EVERYONE'S opinion, tolerant of most things; but on this issue I have a hard time believing someone has a sincere interest in vintage bikes when they treat them as a slab of meat.

You will also see that there are many whom I consider friends but we have different opinions on this particular issue. Just because they're way out of line doesn't mean we can't be friends. But to be perfectly honest; my truest, deepest, most respected friends stand on this side.

Brian Baylis La Mesa, CA This topic hasn't anything to do with KoF, there are many, maybe even most who are on the "other" side. An interest and respect for the classics is not a requirement to be a KoF.

Furthermore, are you saying that if you must be forced to breathe the same air as them, you'd insist that the keep their opinions to themselves but also insist that they listen to and pay homage to yours?

Breathtakingly arrogant, to say the least. Is this part of the KOF initiation rites? O:-)
