Yes, I know it's a scary thought but there are other kinds of forums on the internet. NS isn't the only one (although it might be the most addicting).
1. What other forums do you go to?
2. What is the general vibe of these forums?
I go to a few street bike forums and and one at a website called 'thedjlist'.
NS is pretty unique though. It is by far the most addicting and mindless. It is also the most negative.
Success often walks side by side with sacrafice.
