    Re: ZRX/ZX14 hybrid stem

    . This is bad news Tom, but completely understandable. I'm one of the members here that unfortunately can't contribute much tech knowledge yet, but I love to ride( always have ) and I love to learn. Tom your contributions are quite valuable to me as well as others here, I'm sure. I've always liked the ZRX's but it wasn't until I met you that I got inspired enough to get one of my own. I remember riding my XT 600 by you with your hand on top of your helmet and me turning around at the Balsam rest area wondering if something was wrong(what a newb). So I pulled back around to talk and found out you were politely informing me LEO was around (again I was stumped). I soon figured out from context that LEO was our friendly neighborhood Law Enforcement Officer. Right after that I found out we were neighbors, practically in shouting distance from from house to house. Well long story short it was awesome having the opportunity to learn so much mechanical knowledge from you and become your friend. Unfortunately I don't have the benefit of you and your knowledge looking over my shoulder while I work on my bike in your garage, anymore. Nor a riding buddy to keep my adrenaline at peak level. Even near death with a tank slapper at about 130, with you and Jackie watching comfotably from my bike. Famous last words "Be careful I raced on that tire and noticed a little wobble at around 120 or so... Hahaha!". I dont know about you Tom but I'll never forget that. Now that I'm 2000+ miles away I can't simply call and or just come over to hang out play with bikes eat good food and talk with truly good people anymore. So I guess I'm saying I'll be bummed to see your gifts that you share, squelched by someone. Cheers none the less and rock on.

    PS hopefully I'm not "anybody"..... And I typed this from my phone so pardon errors.

    JT posted early yesterday morning, that's what set Tom off. Now it's magically disappeared.

    Hey Tom,

    Sorry to hear this JT dude got under yer skin man. I say "F" the people on this forum that want to bitch and complain and try to derail your creative talent.

    As a really good friend of mine told me one time, "Don't let'em tell you how to run your business, you run your business the way you want to run it, period". If someone doesn't like your product, then "F'em" and the bitchy-ass horse they rode in on!

    If you change your mind and decide you'd like to sell one of those left-over stell stems, I'd really love to pay you for it. Sent a PM a few weeks back.

    Hang tough dude!

    Re: ZRX/ZX14 hybrid stem

    I haven't been around too much lately but sure hate to read you're throwing in the towel on your products Tom. From what I've read I can understand your frustration.
    Always enjoyed reading what you have to say, you're a talented guy and it's a shame.

    Enjoyed the few times we've met and hope to see you sometime in the near future.......maybe Bristol on a Thursday night!

    Okay, lets all just stop in this thread and lets turn it back into what Tom wanted it for.

    This is not a request.

    Hey Tom if you're ever stoopid enough to make anything ever again & post it to this board, put me down for a stem. Keep the dirty side down bud. Or up, if that's how ya swing.
