The VIEW GALLERY link is back!!

We lost that link when we upgraded. But it has now been adapted for the new version of the forum software. We added it back today. 

In the event you don't know, on the left side of each message is your Avatar with some info about you. Under the avatar you will see the VIEW GALLERY link. This connect directly with the user's personal Gallery page. 

If you haven't added pics of your bike, etc to your member gallery, now is a good time to do so. 

Cheers.

Our upgrade and move is complete, though there will likely be additional changes as we test the various pieces of the forum/site. 

We will be updating the "splash" page and will continue to look for better ways to handle mods etc. 

If you find any problems or have ideas for improvement, please let us know. 

Cheers.

We are almost finished with the recent upgrade and move. The site is running a LOT faster and it is far easier to update and maintain.
Still some things to do. If you see anything you want to see changed, let us know.

We are still working on the site. In addition to the problems we have getting the forum to run the way we want, our hosting provider has introduced some additional problems for us. We may end up changing to a different host.

Problems:

1) All of our mods are not currently listed. We are adding them to the PAGES section right now. BUT, we are looking at a different approach and will be experimenting with that to see if it will work for us.

Our MODs Pages are now located in an INDEX message entitled MODS, TIPS, ACCESSORIES at the top of each sub-board in the Modifications and Troubleshooting board. For example:  Mods and accessories for exhausts are indexed in a message at the top of the
  • Modifications and Troubleshooting
  • ► Exhaust
  •  MODS, TIPS, ACCESSORIES - Exhaust

Just check out the MODS, TIPS, ACCESSORIES message in the related sub-board.  (05/09/2022)


2) We are getting 403 errors periodically thanks to our hosting provider. They are looking into it. This may be what moves us to another provider. We pay a lot to this host to keep our site(s) available to you guys.
It looks like the errors have stopped. We are still planning on moving to another service provider later in the years.  (05/09/2022)

3) This is a major new version of our forum software so there are few themes available that look good. Also the themes in this upgrade are more difficult to customize. I'll be working on that, but in the meantime we'll have to suffer with what is available. I like dark themes and there are even fewer of those. I am looking for a "theme select" mod that will work on this version of our software  In the meantime, you can go to your profile and select an alternate theme. We have 4-5 available.

Still no theme select mod for this version. You can change your default theme in your profile if you don't like this one.  (05/09/2022)

4) If you get a 403 error and the site doesn't work. Wait 5 minutes or so and it will let you work again. Hope to have this fixed shortly.

5) If you have any ideas for improvement let me know. This is the time to make any changes.
More later....

We had to upgrade our software, this is a major upgrade, so the look/feel and some of the functions we used previously will be changed. We will be working on this over the next couple of weeks, so forgive the inconvenience. A LOT of changes have been made in this version. I will, hopefully, work better for everyone. 

The themes we are using should work on any size screen and all devices. 

Cheers

CLASSIFIED ADS:

Just discovered some old classified listings were resurrected after our move and some others weren't appearing. Corrections have been made. 

Please make sure you RELIST your listing if it is close to expiring. Also please remove listings if you have sold your item.

SERVER MOVE COMPLETED:  We have completed the move to a new server. Software has been updated and we have made some changes to the look of the forum.

THEME SELECTION: You can select from 6 themes to suit yourself. Find the dropdown box at the upper right of your screen. The current default is BR Finale.

FORUM OFFLINE FOR 12 HOURS:  As luck would have it, our server provider had a problem last night so we were down for about 12 hours. If you couldn't get connected, that was why.

ARTICLES, MODS and GEAR: We are updating all the Mods and Articles. If you find a problem with any of them, please let us know.

DOWNLOADS: We have a DOWNLOADS area which is currently empty. As you may know, some of the mods listed here have downloadable PDF files links on the page. We intend to add those links to the downloads area as well over the next couple of months.
