Sorry to see you're taking a break but glad the gap event will still be happening. Enjoy the time off and put some miles on the Corvette while you're at it.

As much as I agree with your statement, maybe its time he takes a break?

I had one thread looking for exhaust info where he came back 2 or 3 times where he kinda came off quite stern telling me to search (and I had) and basically what I was doing to my bike was shit. And honestly that's fine, everybody has an opinion and that's what were all here for, opinions and info. But when someone comes back to a thread 2+ times to "voice" their opinion in an albeit negative manner you have to look at it and say, "what exactly is he trying to accomplish here".

He truly is a wealth of info, he will be missed im sure, but there's nothing wrong with taking a break and coming back fresh. And I hope he does, because when I search I see a lot of him and his wisdom in this forum.

I say cheers!
Cheers to his refreshed return at his leisure.

This can become an interesting thread... a bunch of drama all over.

I really do like Chuck and his positive contributions, but I don't get this sense of wanting to control everything. Who the fuck cares if the almighty search is not used. What is this constant urge to impose an opinion, acting or even feeling elevated (and that is something that the older generation of this forum suffer from). Seems very neurotic to me. And then not accepting if someone simply does not agree. If nothing else is bad happens in a thread, just skip it.

And this constant complaining about the newer 'generation' I don't get that either. Maybe I am too stupid to see it. And with that there quite a few newer members that I do like. As older members too btw. This categorizing does not help the forum either.

This stuff is exhausting. This attention seeking drama queen leaving the building as well. And yes... that is my opnion. And no... I don't mind if someone disagrees.

As a newer member and someone looking for a MV I'll tell you using the search function is absolutely necessary all the time before posting or when researching. I have been on forums for a while with cars etc and was on one of the biggest/best for 4x4 knowledge and if you didn't use search function you'd be ripped apart. It kept the forum clear of repetitive bullshit and full of threads that were a wealth of knowledge. I'm 29 so I qualify as the newer gen and it takes 15 fucking seconds to use the search function.

Agree in part, @Sprockit .

There is one massive exception to this and that is that many owners taking on a new bike are 'returning' to the fold after family/retirement etc (well documented on this forum) and seek to join a forum to not only share their joy of new ownership, but also to learn about the bike and join a like-minded community.

In doing so, many might not have had any exposure to forums and their many different operating platforms. It's no response to say that everyone can use a computer because a Word or Excel ace might be lost on a forum platform. So, they'll fight to find an 'introduction' thread, have no idea how to post location and/or profile, (and ultimately be shot down for it) and many would not even know what a 'User CP' is. In wanting to perform a search, they will be drawn to the 'Google' search box rather than the one we all know is in the tools drop down menu. Result? Frig all relevant info.

What I am leading to is that a certain level of tolerance MUST be afforded to new members. I struggled when I joined, and that was after a lengthy time on a Honda forum - but with a different operating platform. Sure, there are the 'what is the best oil/tyres' questions that WILL be monotonous to the frequent posters, but despite the 'Read the Forum Rules First' availed to us when we join, we are too eager to jump in and either say our piece or ask a question.

I think 'tolerance' is the key here, and perhaps the manner by which some points/requests are put across might be softened somewhat.
