Cluttered up garbage from the opening screen through the disconnected forums. Last subscription money MO will ever see from me.

+2 Total mess to navigate the forums. Don't visit daily anymore. Thought it was just something to get used to, but it's not that. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have re-upped back at the beginning of the year.

Thumbs down MO Fun is NO fun

Well after giving it a little time to digest I'm ready to throw it all up. The Forum, the main reason I visited several times a day sucks big green donkey phallic objects. Thanx for killing my happy place on the web. Bitter? Yes! Enough to join the whiners in stating my sub will expire...

I am so sick of this MO 2.0 It brings back memories of Windows 95 and how great it was supposed to be. Actually it more reminds me of those stupid porn sites of a few years back, the kind that would mess up your computer. Sorry guys, I gave it my best shot, but MO 2.0 is a giant leap backward.

It tries to do too much with everything too dispersed. I prefer the simplicity and immediacy of the older forums and am visiting MO less now versus other sites like Cycleworld, which I used to find to be TOO much over MO 1.0.

Yes Cycle World seems clean compared to MO now.. I think the left side buttons/links (manufacturers, tools) and the right side links (buyers guide) of MO are just wasted space and should be implemented as pull downs.. Heck you could put ads there ..

Default I'm seriously disappointed ...

and my subscription will be let lapse.

I want to find the site designer and shake his hand for ripping the company off. It takes a pretty mean site to knock Liverpool FC or MotoGP.com off the top of my list of "Most Cluttered Sites on the Web", but the new motorcycle.com has done it. Here's a giant hint ... we read from left to right, so put the navigation on the left and the content on the right. Keep the layout simple and make it REALLY easy to get to the most common stopping points (forum and reviews).

Why the hell did the management change the forum? The old one was story based, just like other hot news sites like Slashdot or Digg - commentary tended to follow the stories and change with the day. Going back to the "this forum for this, that forum for that" style was almost like stepping back a decade in web terms. Where I could see ALL the discussions happening at a glance by reading down the day's stories on the old forum, I have to dig into multiple sub-forums to keep up with all the topics on the new one. Not a good change.

You're all right. The new "improved" MO 2.0 is a disaster,disorganized, ridiculously hard to navigate, and definitely not worth the trouble or subscription. I going to Cycleworld. Hasta la vista.
