another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Friday, 3 February 2012

i started this blog as a way of remembering things, holidays with my family, football matches, bike racing and shows, stuff i like and that gives me a buzz, images, music and inspiration, rides with mates, walks with my dogs, it was never intended to be a 'fashion' thing, i'm not selling anything, no tee shirts,no coffee table books,no stickers [i gave some away once], no dvd's or any kind of services, i took the name 'loveless' from the katherine bigelow movie of the same name, the 'engineering' bit was because that's what i'm interested in, when i realised people were interested in what i wrote that was great, like minded people who i had things in common with, i have never actively sort out 'follower's', 'terrible fucking name in my opinion, reminds me of the 'life of brian', 'he's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy' etc] i have never censored or deleted ANY comments on this blog, positive or negative, funny, sad or blashphemous and i don't operate a 'subject to approval' posting option, it's everyones blog this, if you like what you see post, if you don't, still post, that's what's great about the internet and what it really was invented for, [yes, i know all about the military communication stuff], a frank and open arena, if you post up a blog you are open to criticism, that's being a human being, everyone has an opinion and is free to express it in my book, so, here we go, ever since trent reker from the bikermetric blog gave me a straightener about posting a couple of photo's of a jawa bobber up on the loveless blog it bugged me, i posted an apology about plagarising 'his' work, then i did a little research, there not 'his' photo's and he didn't build the bike, he posted them up on his blog, put a 'bm' i.d. over the images then wants a credit for it?, excuse me? am i missing something here, a little more research and mr reker wants 'world domination', [ooh err missus, someone wanted that in 1939 and got his arse royally reamed], won't allow anonymous comments, 'by order of the management' and 99,9% of his posts are of other peoples bikes, nothing he builds himself and he want's 'credit' for it? he get's paid for adverts on his blog and his tagline is 'sticking it to the corporate man?' i'm sorry but a little more research reveals he threatens to give someone a slap for posting negative comments, fuck me! it's a blog, it's supposed to be a bit of fun, like i said, an exchange of views, whether you like it or not, please, subscribe to mr rekers blog, he need's the 'follower's' and trent? lose the bandana mate, you look like a member of a dodgy nickleback tribute band............[i'm on vacation in the states again around october, possibly texas, if you want to meet up for a beer, you know how to contact me]

  4. Tim.....I enjoy reading your blog on a regular basis, the writing style, the British shed build spiirt, the vinyl gems, family life etc etc...."Keep on Keepin' On !" (N.F Porter !)It would be far far too easy to launch into a lengthy character assassination of "Bad Ass Trent", but we don't stoop to that level do we ??
    Ok, I'm off to steal some non-authorised pics from US based blogs & iron my bandana 'cos I'm sooo Gangsta Thug....Peace Out indeed !!
    Enjoy the game on Sunday.....full report please !!

  5. Mate, really fucking weird, flicked you a big thanks for your note of support the a super lengthy tome regarding our current point of dicussion abouttwelve hours ago and it appears to have vanished into the ether, that or it was so epic in its mass that the blog couldn't process it, bizarre ?? Anyway Lovely, a quick synopsis is that I concur wholeheartedly with your erudite and accurate take on things, Mr Reker ain't on his Pat Malone in branding others work as his own, begging for followers is like that idiot Facebook caper, I love your work mate, continue the good fight Tim, with you 110% . . . pissed you didn't receive previous response, it was a pearler, you can never replicate that sort of thing, your pep talk of this morning was fucking ace my son, ta muchly, ttfn. P.S - Skippy is on his way . . here Skip !!!
