I’m on the S1000R forum and it’s just about the bike - no stupid typical ‘biker banter’ bs that normally revolves around threads such as ‘riding in shorts in summer’ and ‘asked to remove my helmet in a petrol station’ drivel - normally accompanied by a load of bigoted posts and pictures. This forum went through a phase like that and it’s boring. Instead like the BM forum it has friendly members sharing useful info about the bike, swapping parts and having some good discussions revolving around the machine itself. If you want the normal rubbish it’s best to use the 90% of bike forums that still run like that. I was a mod on the Hornet forum and met a lot of great people there, but some of the threads quickly went downhill from time to time. So it is what it is.
