Other V-Strom forums - this time I am serious

Maybe you will find my post a bit strange or meaningless, but a question interests me since I joined to this site, the Stromtrooper community.

Time to time I notice different references, links in some of your posts pointing to other sites namely other V-Strom forums.
I recently read a post here with a link. I followed that, and found the same names there (with the same content BTW).

I did not checked it, but is it possible that members here who are proud to be a Stromtrooper also do the same on other forums?

What drives you?
Why do you go to an other site where you chat with the same people like here? Where you talk about the same things, where you get the same info, where you...
Do you feel there better? If so, why don't you participate only there? Why do you also do it here?

Perhaps I am silly, too loyal or too sensitive.

I don't want you to think that I am an @ss-licker, but this site gives me what I do expect from: wealth of information, humour, emotion, experience and friends. I do NOT need to go elsewhere to get it.

I am strongly afraid that some (if not most) of you will surely misunderstand what I wanted to express, so I clearly state that this is not to hurt anybody! Everybody do whatever he/she wants, I just wouldn't do that and will not.

You don't need to reply to this post, I just wanted to tell my feelings which sometimes are not too nice, I feel deluded.

I visit other site on a regular basis, even a long time member of some. This forum is one of the best. Good people and great information. I am a member of other forums because there is alot more information I can learn.

You said "Why do you go to an other site where you chat with the same people like here? Where you talk about the same things, where you get the same info"

Not the same info, maybe one forum explained something in a little more detail than others. Many times I see someone posted something in this forum and didnt go into detail on how or what they did. Another person in another forum may have done the same thing and explained it more precise. You learn more about your hobby if you spread out your mind and explore other options to increase your knowledge of your hobby. I am loyal to this site by sharing my experiances, farkles and stuff. I dont just post on one forum. What I post, or any one posts could be a posible learning experiance for someone else. Why restrict it to one place? Just my $0.02

I'll discuss V-Stroms with people wherever they may be. This site seems more people oriented and the other more technically oriented. This one is more fun and the other more businesslike to me.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informa...-you-have.html

Good observations Greywolf. Mokus, I understand your concern, however like GW, and most others, I will go wherever people are discussing Stroms. Both this and the other predominant Strom site are great, however from time to time it's nice to get a different "look". Both sites provide a good balance and both cover a lot of ground, they just do it in a different way. There are a couple of other Stom sites with virtually no traffic and are hardly worth logging on to.

I usually go to the other forums to get information that I couldn't get here.

I figure that there must be strommers on the other forums that don't come to this one, and I value their opinions and knowledge too.

I do like this forum though. A great bunch of people!

I have been loyal to the same woman for 28 yrs. though. :lol:

Greywolf hit the bullseye about how I feel. This is my favorite forum by far.....but I can get some other good info/opinions at others as well. :wink: We all have a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips! I too know that ALLOT of people are members of other moto forums. We all have the same love/interest MOTORCYCLES!!!!!

You had a good reason to bring this topic up, I don't fault you one bit. Maybe now you are getting the idea, that we are taking advantage of other resources, and getting to know other people like us.

Later,
