PostSubject: Why I like John Grinsel   Tue Mar 15, 2011 10:16 am

Why I like John Grinsel,

The reasons I like John Grinsel, and just hope he stays with us on the Silverwing600 forum for many years.

1. John speaks his mined and is not timid in his approach in getting his thought out. The truth has away of hurting peoples feeling from time to time. Sometimes that is what is necessary to get change to occur, to correct a wrong, to point out our weak points. We all live with weak points, weather in ourselves or in the world that we have grown to except. Always speak out John…We do listen.

2. John is not a game player. He does not use other members like puppets. A few people on this forum use others like hand puppets to archive their goals of stifling the voices and ideas of other members. I will always respect you for this John.

3. There is no jealousy in John’s ways. He does not try to create problems between other members here. Straight talk and opinions. Time tested results of years of road and highway riding all over this world; he shares with us all freely. Thank you John for sharing your experiences with us all.

4. Perseverance of high honorable character. John you’re a stand up person of deed and character. I read it in your reviews and responses to questions posed you. As a retired Army soldier myself, I salute you Sir.

5. We all know of your years of motorcycle and scooter riding. 1.6 million miles and counting. John you got allot of grit to do that many miles. I just hope by the end of my life, I could say I’ve done even half that many miles. 1.6 million…WOW.

John…Thanks for being here with us…we are better forum for having you with us.

Dennis, I have to agree with you. He bug's me sometimes, and I have poked fun at him, but I do enjoy his posts, and they are a lot more interesting than a lot of posters (including me). He doe's tell it like he sees it. Stay with us John!

One problem with posts like this is that it's impossible to disagree without breaking the rules of the forum.

Don't forget, people, it's his lie and he can tell it any way he wants.

Unless you flat out insult someone on purpose, I don't think there's a problem.
In my year on this forum most attitudes and comments are accepted by the moderators as long as there is no intent to insult someone. There have been cases where sarcasm and "stick poking" have been interpreted as negative behavior, but humor is also open to misinterpretation.

Back to John. He certainly is opinionated, sometimes in an antagonistic way. But he seems harmless enough. I too would like to meet him in person.
Maybe at a Tennessee rest stop with CLEAN bathrooms!

Wow, too bad there aren't any! Or is that what you meant?

That's your opinion, and you're entitled to it as long as you have ridden the acceptable number of miles. (Hint, the number has seven digits.)

I'm not sure. The last time I was in Tennessee was 1987.
But I'd still like to meet the old codger.
