An observation is nothing more than that - it'* made into a thread of discussion, much like any other. Why do we bash ricers in various forums? Because it'* a free country (I include our neighbo(u)rs in the Great White North) and we can, that'* why! So why can't she call out the stupid GPers? It'* her right. Of COURSE a lot of them are younger and more immature than Bonneville owners, so some of them act accordingly. And she was commenting on that.
And the tale of caution....I seem to think this board is somewhat better policed, especially by its own members, but I haven't really been into other clubs to judge, but everyone seems pretty well behaved (though I think sometimes that a few of you need to get rooms.....
) It'* just the impression that I get. But that could change at any time. Sure, we get silly, but hopefully it won't break down into one big flame war. So what she'* saying is, if you want a great idea of what we DON'T want to put up with, go over to the GP forum and check out the maturity level, or lack thereof.
Having said that, Ty, you also have a right to retort if you don't agree with her assessment, but I dare say don't question her motives. She doesn't have to ask anyone before she posts something!
And I think GP'* - most of them, anyway, outside the GT and GTP'* - are cheap-*** cars. Just my $0.02. I test drove an SE before I got the opportunity to buy my Bonnie, and I thought "HOW CHEAP!" Which goes to show you that most GP'*, unlike the Bonneville, are marketed toward a younger, less affluent crowd.
