Holy crap- am I a founding member? Anyway, I really like the fact that the damned site was finally updated. I'm probably the only person that think this, but ditch the babes. Motorcycle.com is about motorcycles. If I want to see girls, that is just a sexy search away....

Knew you'd come around. Nice to be back - it's been too long.

Count me as another one who likes the new set up.

I'll be coming back more often and adding my grains of salt.

Great job MO.

Default Back at MO

Good to get back to the great reviews and articles. I'm not convinced yet about the new syle but will hold my tongue until I've had a better look around. Nevertheless congrats on opening the door again MO.

Ah, there you all are! I've been looking all over the site for you. I suppose the snacks and beer have all gone by now, which is my fault for coming late, I suppose. But the new site is very colourful, and the galleries/videos/manufacturers set-up is nice. Just three niggles:
1. Couldn't Guzzi get a manufacturer's category of their own? Do they have to be with Hyosung et al? I mean, if you're going to give Aprilia separate status, why not Guzzi?
2. Babe of the Month will bring in the viewers, I suppose (weary sigh) but could you at least have them posing on motorcycles? And try not to get airheads who say 'I don't know anything about motorcycles': make up the copy, if you must, along the lines of 'I really like sportbikes, they're so smooth-looking and they sound really hot'. You know, try to link up motorcycles, enthusiasm, sex and desire rather than motorcycles, ignorance, and disinterest.
3. The BB will settle down after a while, I'm sure, but I, too, used to like being able to see the nested comments at a single click insatead of having to keep loading lages of icons and avatars.

What the hell? How did Batman get put there? I didn't select or click anything. Oh, well, could be worse, I suppose...

At very least, make the "Babes" a more discreet link on the first page. I like to browse at work during lunch and I can't have image from the front page up if my VP stopped by.

Question

How come I'm not a "Premium" founding member? I've been paying for years.

Hearty congratulations. Welcome to the 21st century. Very nice new design. In my opinion this is a huge step forward. And I like the fact that the forums looks like most other forums, i.e. modern.
