Congrats Steve on the 100 mark! Awesome idea about the flash in Helen GA. Hoping to get mine to you before then but if I don't I'll be there, if even for a short time. Would like to meet some of the great people on this forum that have given me so much advise for the C14. I would be the guy that suggested a gov.. for ? but really, I just want to Thank you for what you do for the C14 community. :great:

Steve, congrats on the milestone!  I ride my bike every day and there isn't one that goes by that I don't marvel at how smooth this thing is now!  Before, rarely did she go north of 5k, let alone redline.  Now, I admit it happens more often.

Personal note: Most, if not all, of us realize the knowledge, skill, cost, and time this development required.  None of that is lost on us. Not one bit.  With that said, may I ask that you NOT put future flash posts in a different forum topic?  The reason is that had you done that previously, I never would have read it, and therefore wouldn't have discovered your amazing product.  There is another 'me' out there that is just now buying a C14 and hasn't heard of the flash yet.  Give that person the opportunity to see your threads and decide that this is something they want.

4- Flame baiting, flaming, being abusive,disrespectful, trolling, spamming or posting to incite or annoy is inconsistent with the spirit of COG.  If you cannot make a positive contribution to the thread, just stay out of it. In the event of a thread being reported for any of the above, a moderator may request the poster to self moderate their post, see 5 below.


so why is the "mage" piehole still spouting off rather than getting banned? how many time does he get a free pass at bashing  THE SAME COG MEMBER!!?????!!!!!! WTF?

Nice work Steve and congrats on the milestone....that is really cool.

On a related note:  I also agree with the comment from tjhess74 and the location of where posts like this should be kept.  It is very much C14 related and if it were located in another section of the forum, I would not likely have even noticed it.  Hopefully Steve will be able to continue to post and provide updates in the C14 section.

I normally don't barge in on disagreements between members on the Forum.  In this case I feel compelled to.  I've known SISF quite well for several years and know him to be honest and straight forward.  He has spent a lot of time, effort and money developing this product.  And from the great majority of posts his product is well received.

Anyone that feels that this product is snake oil has the right to say so.  They should provide documentation as to why they feel the product is worthless.  They should not, however, make it a personal attack.  Steve, I'm sure, would be happy to discuss his product on a technical basis, but he should not have to respond to personal attacks.

This is not how COG members should treat each other and it's not how this Forum should be used.

Steve I appreciate the fast email response. Will re flash in the next 60 days ( gotta find a trench coat..... And time I'm not riding ;)   Dont let the adherents of the Greek philosopher Mediocrates get the best of you buddy, if you aren't drawing some flack, you aren't over the target ;)

Steve,

Congratulations on this milestone of 100 flashes!

Hey, I sincerely hope you're not going to be flashing ECUs the whole time at the national. I want to ride with you, man! I was really bummed that you couldn't make it to last year's national. I really wanted to meet and speak with you in person. I treasure the time you've spent on the phone with me regarding the intricacies of your fuel mapping, the interaction with the oxygen sensors and your surgical precision with the secondaries.

I can't say enough good things about how your hard work and excruciating attention to detail has improved the riding experience of my bike. I know that was your goal from the beginning, and sir, you have overachieved overwhelmingly! Thank you for taking the risk to experiment and tinker, knowing that you could make a good product so much better. Thank you for taking the risk of having a business to make the riding experience so much better for the masses!

I look forward to talking with you in person in Helen!
Jim

Hey Guys, I truly appreciate that, BUT things might not be that simple... what if I show up on a beemer barkolounger? my wife is coming to the national, I really want her to enjoy Helen, but she's gonna want the bmw, not the c-14. So I'm in a tough place on this one.  ::) :o   Steve

  Oh, and to those who haven't ridden with me and thing it might be a fun adventure... well y'all should speak with those who have ridden with me. I think they would tell you as a rider, I'm a good mechanic  :-[  Steve

Agreed.
Make Mrs. Steve happy.
There's plenty of guys who now have your flash installed,  that you don't NEED yours there to demo.

Most everyone will have decided whether they want your Flash before they get there!  :beerchug:

Been there, and I know that feeling.  ::)  Even though it's insured, you don't want them to loose it because it would be a long painful road back to a running bike.  Good luck!  Mine shipped fine both ways.  The USPS tracking for mail along the route is not accurate.
