What happened?

Hello,

I will admit I have been absent from this site for over a year, but I can't believe how this site has more ads than Craigslists and more flashing garbage than Vegas.

So since this site is now a complete sellout- who gets the money?

It's happened to a bunch of motorcycle sites. You can pay your way out of some of it, or install a different browser with an ad blocker.

It's a shame, because the ad thing is WAY overkill, and detracting from activity on some of the sites.

I understand bills must be paid and all... but such a drastic change in service.

I've been mia for a while myself and couldn't believe the change. I had a link bookmarked to the site and the first time I clicked on it to come here I couldn't believe it was the same. The new look kind of sucks but I guess you gotta do what you have to do. Well the new format sure saves me a trip to Google for parts search

Perhaps that goes toward the monthly sweepstakes that they host?

I've yet to see one of those pop up.

F*ck that. I'm still wainting on my tires. "Haven't heard from the rep yet? I'll see what up?" "No, this time someone should contact you" "This time someone will"

I never got mine either, kinda gave up on hoping they will arrive after contacting mike twice.

I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P
