Exclamation I thought this was a Sportbike site

Each time I go to the member's galleries I end up thinking; When did this turn into a porn site? It has come to the point that I cannot check out the gallery with my son in the room, he loves bikes too.
Don't get me wrong, I love to see pictures of ladies on the bikes, and I don't mind people showing some of their other interests, but when your whole gallery is (completely) naked women, it's about time to subscribe to an amatuer porn site.
I think the gallery focus should be on Sportbikes... it is the name of the site.
What do you think?

I like the girls, but then this is a sportbike website. I understand your son wanting to check out all the bikes, but the naked girls, not so good (for your son that is). I personally have not seen any sportbike websites without the girls. It just goes with the territory.

I can see your point especially when your son is young.

To be honest I never looked at that part of the board till you mentioned it.

There is a place for those sort of photos & was set up just a while ago. Possibly those are old photos & the one in control can give warning & wipe them out week later if not removed?????

My son is pre-teen, and he is only on the Net with me supervising.
Others may be more liberal in way they let their children use the Internet (therein lies the problem). Parental guards will catch alot of things, but I'm not sure if it would screen out a motorcycle site with pics of women spread eagle.
I'm not saying my son has never seen a breast, or a woman wearing a thong, but the sheer volume of R rated pictures is growing.
Perhaps a solution would be to set up a separate area with parental controls.

Taking a peek at the galleries page the only nude pictures I saw were all in either the "Women" or "Member Galleries" areas. All of the mfg specific, racing, exotics, etc. ones seemed clean. Perhaps I missed the r-rated pics though.

sksport, I appreciate your concerns. As a result, I have removed the "girly" shots from my gallery.
