Congratulations on the new site. Looks great!
my avatar is strangely attracted to your avatar.
It's about damn time this site got an update! Was just thinking a few weeks ago when renewed my membership that this site was prolly the most stale high-traffic website on the entire web! Great job squids. The new site looks terrific!
Looks like a lot of work went into the redo. Looks great
MO is free again? Probably a good thing. I always thought it was odd that the number of people on staff and the amount of new content actually went down when MO went to paid subscriptions.
I was wondering where you've been...
If the "forums" stay like this, or if I can't figure out how to make it less aggravating to use, you'll be seeing less and less of me until my sub runs out. Shooting the breeze with you guys was half the appeal of this site (more than half, actually), so if the forums remain unusable to me, that makes my subscription effectively 24 bucks, which is more than subbing to Motorcyclist and Cycle World combined. Not worth it at that point.
Well, they stopped making 57 Chevys back in 1957. Life moves forward.
Point taken!
The new look!

I like the new look so far. Thanks for updating and including subscribing members with additional feature function.
Ah, I see it's free now. Never mind.

I guess my opinion means even less, then.

BTW, it's taken me as much time to read seven messages as it would have to read an entire thread before. Used to be "read, read, read, read, scroll a little, read, read, read..." Now it's "click, read, scroll-and-good-luck-finding-your-spot, click, read, scroll-and-good-luck-finding-your-spot..." I really, really hope there's something I'm missing here. Is there a way to make that box full o' threads up there show the whole message instead of just the title?
Good evening Schizuki.

I think I understand your angst. Do emoticons make you hostile? Does the mere presence of a goddamn vapid smiley face make you thumb back the hammer on your 1911? I feel your pain, and in the most non-Clintonian sense.

The world has gone mad, but at least you are a "premium founding member" of a madhouse. That has to be worth something.

A [singular] virtual complimentary beverage awaits for you in the Premium Member Lounge. You may consider starting a thread there that will allow you to vent your spleen amongst like-minded folks. Or you can at least call someone a douchebag and then hit them with a folding metal chair. That always makes me feel better.
Oh, and I don't know if you noticed the "User CP" button. It allows you to view the threads you have posted in. That way you can see if they have been added to and when, so you can monitor them for anyone you may want to converse with. Or hit with a folding metal chair.
There is iron in your words, Cheesebeast. And nougaty wisdom.
So, are the manufacturers listed in order of whichever company pays the most advertising money?
It would personally disturb me to see MO without a Schizuki.

It just isn't PROPER.

NO, Sir, You have a job to do. It would be as if you ran out on the French Foreign Legion with the last of the ammunition (and cheese) when the thundering hordes were set to arrive at any moment.

I predict thundering hordes of Squids are imminent, so keep your eyes peeled and your ammunition fresh. And relish the fact you were issued a funny looking hat. The few, the proud, the French!
New Format

Been with MO since the early days...although I rarely post, I always read your reviews and other information...too soon to tell if the new format is any better - that's up to you and your site long as the info stays as good...also, looking forward to the value-added services that come from being a subscriber...good luck with the advertising...BMUU-GS/Motopharmacist!
There seem to be a bunch of articles missing, for example the review of the 2008 KLR 650. Is this just a glitch? Will these articles be posted again?

Kudos on all the hard work making the new site.
Manufacturers List

I wonder about the list also...seems to me it should be alphabetical...that eliminates the "who paid the most" issues...IMNSHO!
Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is.
