I don't really keep track of the Shadow forum over there much, have no real reason too, so of course I never saw brake mods postings about the Shadow.
Still, it's just a forum, it's free advice, if something were too happen where someones brakes failed, how can a forum and it's contents be responsible ?
The answer is, it can't, in today's society it seems to be the norm to blame others for their mistakes, if this "Cowboy" does something to his brakes and harms himself or others, he can't come after the forum _ the guy is an adult, he's not 12.
It's the same where if I buy brake parts for my Mazda truck and I install them wrong and have them fail, the auto parts store isn't responsible for my negligence.
If he's not being sensible then he should be banned for that, other members should not be penalized for his mistakes.
