If a knob sqeaks and no one is listening ...did it really sqeak?

Well now, would that be John Moses Browning? Or any of the other generic Johns out there? It certainly ain't all you, pal.

Nice try...

Gary, you're an idiot. Do you have any idea how Googlefight works?

Even if that meant there were more mentions of "Baron Scooters" on T3H 1NTARW3B, it's probably along the lines of "Boy howdy, I sure hate these piece of shit plastic Baron Scooters" or "I'd buy one of those Baron Scooters, but then I'd be aftraid of being mistaken for that douchebag Gary Charpentier."

433, do we really want to get into name calling? I won't stoop to your level.
But speaking of names, why don't you use yours? What are you ashamed of?

I'm fully aware of how GF works. It's not about "mentions", it's about Google searches, when people are looking for information on a subject.
The ignorance of your statement indicates who the REAL idiot is.

I just wanted to show how damned silly you people are. Spikehead had to go stirring the shit again, so I struck back.

This will happen every time one of you attacks me. Get a freakin' life! The weather is nice again... get off your computers and go ride your scooters.

Can't even keep his own word. Some "journalist". Some "Marine".

Gary, What happened to the red Baron? I see your riding a black one now...

Dave,

First off, thanks for not attacking me. I'm perfectly willing to forgive and forget if you people are. We cannot avoid seeing each other in meatspace somewhere this season, so the least we can do is try to keep things civil.

Was that you I passed on West River Road the other day?

I'm doing R&D for Baron now. When they bring a new model online, I ride the hell out of it (in a totally scientific manner, of course), identify any weaknesses, and figure out how to fix them. The goal is to bring the quality level up to American market expectations, and try to rise above the horrible reputation of the other Chinese manufacturers. We have our work cut out for us.

I am also writing the technical manuals for Baron, so U.S. customers don't have to depend on the "Chinglish" version. That's why I'm sitting at my computer right now, instead of riding.

The black PM you saw me on is a 250cc model, perfect for two-up riding with my daughter.

The Red Baron made it through the winter, and we are retiring it to display duty at Baron HQ. It will be hung from the ceiling by cables, sort of a "Scootsonian Exhibit", if you will. I put almost 11,000 kms on it over the course of the winter, and it still ran well at the end.

Right now, the black PM is in the shop, getting some modifications I suggested. I'm riding the shop Hot Rod on my commute. This is the same lightweight chassis as the Red Baron, but with a liquid-cooled 250cc motor stuffed into it. I was passing cars on I-94 the other day, in the left lane at >70 mph. These scoots do have potential.

Ride well,
=gc=

P.S.
I'm even willing to forgive Jeremy Stomberg for the "douchebag" comment.
Judging by the timestamp on his message, he was probably drunk.


433 @ 1002?

Actually, Gary, that Googlefight was people searching for "Gary" or "Charpentier". If you search for your full name, you don't get as many.
http://googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=Gary+Charpentier&word2=%22Gary+Charpentier%22

I'll save you the click, it's 248,000 to 437. You sure are Mr. Popular!

I only have 199, but I'm quite a bit younger than you and not a "journalist".

Um, nothing. I have a nickname on BBSes, I've had the same one since about 1989. Besides, it's not too difficult to figure out my name based on posts here or elsewhere online -- any idiot can do it.

1002? Oh, I see, you googled me and found my old address. Congratulations, you did something my seven-year-old nephew can do.

Happy Easter, hope nobody sticks an egg in your exhaust.
