No it would last 30 days or more with 50 pages debating every little muscle movement and consequenses and in the end have the same number of opinions that there were posters to the thread.:roll:

PERFECT!! that is the best way ive heard it said!!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

I do have to ask - since when does someone have to be an absolute expert on a subject to have an opinion? My posts in this thread have been thoughts, opinions from my experiences and knowledge.
Again guys, friendly debate.
If this was a debate between riders on this froum that have shown at the GP level, it'd be pretty darn short.
It is misleading to say that I said you couldn't have an opinion. I just asked why you called yourself an educated rider. I used your words. To me, an educated rider would be someone who had studied the customs and rules of a particular riding style. They would also have extensive training and would have had ridden that style extensively. I just wanted to know how you define the term educated rider. I guess we define that term differently.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?
