Why do touring and Backcountry tools think they are the shit? They rub it in everybody's faces like they are better than everyone.
"Look at me I'm touring, I'm better than you" is the vibe most of them give off. They really just like showing off their expensive gear but only about 25% of the BC group can actually rip and those people I can respect because they rip and are humble about it.
The rest, kinda suck, when they come back inbounds to the rest of us, it's like.. "Dang bro all that fancy gear and I still found a gnarlier line than you and made it down before you, but hey.. I'm not bragging about it". Oh yeah, nice a splitboard.. I like it.. now let's get out there and idk.. put it to use?
Cool skins dude, you are so good at hiking up I am so inspired by u.. u deserve a silent cheer! 2 points for u!
"How do those touring bindings work?"
"Well, you can only know how to use them if you know how to rip"
"But I can rip, in fact.. I don't mean to offend you.. but I haven't really seen you rip before, also isn't the point of going to the BC supposed to include FUN, Friends, and POW? I mean if we're being honest who actually cares if you're the best skier on the mountain pr not?"
"Well.. when you put it that way, I still won't show you how these works.. because I'm afraid you'll get a touring setup and you'll shine more than me and It will offend me.. also, you don't have 5 mil and my daddy does... why am I even associating with the likes of you?"
"Okay, dood... carry on den.. HAVE FUN"
