Angry What's happened to Motorcycle.com?

Okay, I go away for a while and come back. First thing I do is get to my trusty motorcycle.com. WTF?
There are missing articles, (well, located elsewhere. e.g., The B Team: Value Supersport Shootout, which I find under Sport Bike Shotouts) a WAY too busy site, and no "Contact Us" link. Where's my account info?
Is there any link from the owners to an article explaining what happened? Is it now free? What gives?

Oh yeah, and the Buell article wasn't under "Buell" in the reviews section any more.

I'm a little confused as well. I've been away for a few months and decided to come see what folks are saying about the new Buell 1125r. My dream come true BTW, with their dropping the tractor engine in favor of a Rotax twin and all!!!!! (A slipper clutch is even included!!!!!)

Also, I know my subscription is out of date and I need to pay, but I couldn't figure out how to do so?

As for the look and feel of the new site. It looks cool, but it's gonna take us old-timers a while to get used to it.

b-dude,

Join the rest of us dazed and confused veterans of a formerly user-friendly site.

As far as I can tell, there is no real reason to pay a subscription. I got an e-mail from whoever the heck is drinking coffee in the MO closet saying Premier members get this and that, but I can't figure out how to get around the regular features.

And- I'm paid up, and am not allowed to edit my posts.

One tip: Check the "User CP" tab for your profile stuff.

Thanks for the info...

When did all of these changes take place? I was shocked when I first saw the default page!

Are Buzz, Fonzie, Pete and the rest of the gang still here? (Actually I used to have Pete's private email addr somewhere, I need to look for it and see if I can get the whole story...)

All, I saw someone mention confusion on how to edit our user profiles.

I was able to do this under the "quick links" at the top. There are several different places to go there so you'll need to mess with it until you get what you want.

Man I agree, I used to hit this site all the time and now I hate it. I only come here out of habit. I was a paying member for years and I never complained about the old site. Go ahead MO. Admit it was a mistake and give us back the old site and we will forgive you.

Complete agreement. The old site wasn't flashy, but it was very easy to navigate.

From what I've seen, there really isn't much going on in the way of new content, and now that the page is covered with adds and other cruft, am seriously considering not renewing.

Too bad, since this has been a favorite destination for quite some time.
