zx-10r.net index page

I have seen that the recent announcement (double) from the administrator (not YSR) on zx-10r.net index page is the same as bmw1000 site. I just think its a little inappropriate to advertize other makes in this site besides the zx-10r. There was some recent "battle" between the mods and certain members who joined this site just to bash the site, start trouble and what this site is all about (zx-10r).
Also if i was a member on the bmw forum i would also find inappropriate that the site owner would advertize the zx-10, or other makes.
I know probably nothing will change but i have to share my opinion when it comes to this site as im a 5 year old member.
I do sincerelly hope this site stays zx-10r oriented even though i see other makes advertizements all over the index page, otherwise lets just "merge" all sites into one :headshake.

Thank you for your time

Well even though this is a free forum for anyone to join you cant really ask the admin and owners to sacrifice possible profits or advertisements over people wanting to keep them totally Kawi and BMW oriented. There are members here with both and other bikes. I don't think your wrong at all but I can see why the owners are doing what they are doing because I would probably do the same with all the advertisements. Its the only way to keep sponsors happy and keep money flowing to keep free sites running. The articles are good to know also because people like to know about the new bikes no matter what they are. I know you were probably being sarcastic but "Merge" = troll fest, Squid fest, bashing fest, and make searches and help hard to find. good topic for a thread though lol

would like to hear others opinions on this matter.... wish you would have made this a poll .

I don't think we want this site to be known as the new gixxer.com. Not sure how that site is these days but it always had a reputation for being the ultimate squid forum with the "Gixxers are God" mentality.

When I was at the Motorcycle show there was some meathead there looking at the new 10. I heard him say to his girlfriend that he couldn't find the BMW display and needed to check them out because "it had more power". I let him know that they haven't been to the show for the past two years. He then started talking to us about the 10. When he asked me if the "dent" in the top of the tank was a place to put a GPS I had to walk away.

There will always be those that want a bike only because the latest tests rate it as the top bike. I would guess that the above example is one of those type of people. I'm hoping he buys the BMW.
