It's been up and down alot the last couple of weeks. I lurk over there alot, and noticed the same thing myself.

It went down for maint. and a server upgrade I think it was, like a few months ago..but it still ran slow enough on average, to pi$$ me off.

You'd think if he just upgraded it a few months back, he'd have gotten sufficient bandwidth at the time.

Thank God we dont have those probs over here. We Rock!!

Hell yea.. i like this forum so much better, over on sportbikes.net its a bunch of stuck up assholes, although i do like the fact that its not censored over there.. i dont believe that certain words should be censored. Other then that its just got a whole lot more ppl on that forum... But here is nice, nice ppl for the most part, and lots of new interesting threads for the amount of members....

You gotta love the Biker Babes section on their tho... You guys think you would ever have a section like that on here???

at the homepage on sbn, it won't let me onto open forums, but i can go to women riders and then from there go click on topic discussions to get to other forums....really wierd, but that's what i have had to do.

something screwy must be going on with servers b/c another forum i go to had that same problem, but it's been fixed.

this place does rock...the only thing, and its not a disadvantage to everyone of course, is that the main page takes forever to load on dial-up. needs a bare-bones version for those not with the program.

Hey I have dial up at work and it does suck! However, if you have dial up, obviously you're not worried about spending the extra time vs the extra cash!!! So you'll have to wait for all the fun to be had!
