I don't care about looking. That's normal enough (as you said). It's the emphasis on the home page that I think is misplaced. And as I said, the voting (for goddess's sake) ought to die an early death.

One more item, not sure if this is the responsibility of MO or not. My homepage is my.yahoo. I am able to select motorcycle.com as one of the news headline sources along with LA Times, Reuters, Big Booty Babes, etc.
Since the change, it is asking me for a network login. When I input my MO login, I am redirected to Basketball Forum - NBA & College Basketball Forums which, strangely enough is a basketball forum. Being a Celtics fan, I can do without a constant reminder that we haven't won the championship since 1986 when I was arrested for D&D at the rally in City Hall Plaza. But I digress...
I think the issue is that the Motorcycle.com link is Basketball Forum - NBA & College Basketball Forums. If you or Yahoo can change that we should be good to go. End users like me cannot do that as far as I can tell.

AHA! I printed the URL <news2.motorcycle.com>, but the sight name is showing up in the forum thread.

Drop the extremely juvenile Motorcycle Babes and get on with what I subscribed for.

PS The new look is nice.

Default I can live without it

I can live without the Babes thing. If that's what you're after there are way better places to be looking. Besides I'm all for promoting more women riding and being comfortable with the whole motorcycle scene. It's better to ride 1 and 1 than 2 up.

Cool!

The articles' text could spread a bit wider, though.

And the "hybrid" and "threaded" modes don't seem that much different. I see the difference, obviously, but I'd say the threaded mode would be better as the way it used to be, not reduced to a small scroll-able box.

Good work though!
