indeed. maintenance is paramount when it comes to any type of motor vehicle. i have heard guys say, "bah, run the hell out of it, it will be fine. you dont need to clean all that BS". yet, they are the first ones to say " oh this thing is a POS blah blah blah". when in reality, if you DONT take care of your machines, they WILL let you down. and there is no one to blame but number 1. great example dmckinny33, its alot cheaper and an easier lesson to learn from someone elses mistakes :thumbsup:

I see that you are holy. I try to be to most of the time to. My main thing is searching for a holy GF cause the one I got is not helping me at all. I guess it would be a good thing not to use profanity on this site. To be honest though .. theres not a whole lot of it. Im pretty sure the kids here a lot more cursing at school than on here. MY 7 year old niece said some kid in here class be saying F and duck ect.

Oh please, keep your kids off the damn forum if you don't like the langauge, that's your job as a parent not ours. If a few colorful words offend you then maybe you need to hang out at the bible study forum and not this one :confused:

Dude, the man just asked you to watch your language, because he kids are probably interested in the sport also. You don't have to be a jerk about it or take it personal. :chair:

This is exactly why I bought a low hour used Raptor...... with only 10 hours, he really didnt have much time to jack it up, unless he went hog wild on the break in. However, Im not the easiest on stuff during break in either, I go easy, but for the most part I push it pretty hard. However, I am VERY particular about maintenance etc.

I'm not being a jerk, just stating my opinion which last time I checked, I still had the right to do.


I get so damned tired of people wanting others to change the way they do and talk because they are offended by it, screw that if you don't like it go somewhere else, enough of this politically correct, bleeding heart liberal bullshit.

Thanks, point made. Sorry Roc, some folks just wasn't raised up to respect others. Anyway, that was my two cents, not trying to start a Jerry Springer episode. :lol: You guys are right though, if you don't keep the maintance up on them, it gets alot more expensive later.

That goes both ways there preacher ;) Why is it always said that those of us who throw in a little colorful language need to respect others, I think others need to learn to respect our ways as well.

There are no Administrator-Induced restrictions on language on this board. We do make an attempt to keep things family friendly by relegating most of the blue material to areas like the off-topic lounge. Seeing as how the language in this thread was not used in a derogatory way I don't personally have any issue with it. In fact I had to read the post twice to see what all the commotion was about. Finding out you've got a 1k dollar repair bill in front of you is pretty frustrating and if that's not enough to let one of those words slip out I don't know what is.

Fa sho my nizzle! How many people in the world use profanity though? Like a zillion .. so this one little board is not the last quest to keep your kids from hearing foul langauge. I gues you're just working for the lord though for every one to be as good as possible and not sin. I dont hate for that.

When we were house hunting about 6 months ago, I asked myself that same question every house we walked into.

Why do people spend 200k+ on a house (which is a nice house in my area), and neglect it / thrash it? Some people will never take care of a thing they own, regardless of what it is.

If I was offended by the words under your avatar would you change them to be considerate ?
