Default Re: And the point is...

he might sound a little bitter, but I agree to the points he raised. When the last survey was held, most of us asked MO to focus on the street, not track.



We have NOT seen that happening

DuDe! The name of the website is MOTORCYCLE.com, not streetfreakingbike.com. I don't understand people who don't take advantage of all the excitement that motorcycling offers. MX, enduro, trials, dirt track, hillclimbing, sport riding, touring, cruising, supermoto, speedway, x-treme, and even those adventure-tourers that I hate. It's all good!


Go get a dirt bike and shred!

Yeah! Remember "Song of the Sausage Creature" by Hunter Thompson? Great stuff!

Sweet! Sounds good to me! Whatcha got? I'm moving into a house with a three car garage the end of Feb. I can't wait to stuff it with bikes!

Default Re-design the site or give it up

Top to-do priorities:

#1-299 Invest in a redesign of the site. It is extremely disjointed and just about impossible to navigate. All the other stuff you list is re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic compared to your need for a fundamental navigation re-design. How can you charge us for this design when plenty of amateur sites have better flow, consistency, navigation, etc.? You don't even have a navigation bar or a consistent way to get anywhere.

#300 Excellent forum hosting software is very available and maintainable. Set up some forums and let the users provide useful content. You will find it easy to get volunteer moderators to keep things within limits. Without forums, I'm not sure the content here is worth the subscription.

#301 A ride/people DB is a great idea, but I'm not convinced itÂ’s worth the development/maintenance resource cost considering your available resources. You'd be a lot better off to invest in #1-299.

#302 Let Burns have a home. Just a shame I can't find his material or any other content because I can't find much of anything on this site. See #1-299 above.



This is, by far, the poorest designed web site I've seen in at least four years, and unbelievably amateurish for a charge-for-entry site. If your webmaster(s) feelings are hurt, they should be. Their work is an embarrassment to their profession. Hire some pros who can really deliver what this medium is capable of or go back to print.
