Agreed, and I'm not colorblind! It's too light on the white background.

Otherwise, it looks fantastic! Nice work!

Nice, I like..

However (since it's not quite as abrupt as but!) as they say "just when you make something idiot proof, they invent a better idiot!

Seems it is possible, for the more inept of us to submit the same thread more than once, no need to ask me how I know!

Site issue: when posting replies sometimes the page returned is empty and blank and I have even been redirected to the login page even though I on another TAB I am still logged in and can post.

Will take a little getting used to, but I think I'll like it. I know this type of change requires a ton of work, so thanks for your work behind the scenes.

This was already the best motorcycle site (for The best motorcycle) ever.

Any improvements are greatly appreciated: THANKS!

Well...will you look at that! Went from gen 1, 2 to gen 3 only banner. Remind me again why the graphic designer was told to exclude all previous versions in his design? Just curious. Other than that...functionally speaking, this seems like an improvement. I'll get used to it ...the conspicuous absence of the gen 2 model (and gen 1). But, as a 2013 owner, seems like a short-sided decision on the banner design to deliberately eliminate the other gens.

+1 on the green hyperlinks being impossible to read.
Also +1 on the gen3 only banners. I'm calling Al Sharpton.

I Personally liked the black background on the previous forum, but the lighter screens are somewhat refreshing. Honest opinion is I am not a huge fan of change but it seems whoever did the page spent some time and did a good job. The fact that you are even asking for input is nice too.

I like the "lighter" look.

Can we get a pic of the Gen 1 Versys in the header? I would be nice to give a nod to the bike that started this forum.

Oh, and can we get rid of the sticky about the rally gathering for 2011?
10-4, thanks for the feedback.

Testing - Kawasaki Versys

Also we are working on getting a newer mod team to help "clean up" and help the site grow a bit. But I will run through there really quick and clean them up.

Can you try logging out/in and clearing your cache a few times.

That should correct the issue.

Heya guys,

I will look into tweaking the Hyperlink fonts once I have examples of which ones you are talking about to confirm.

I will see if we can add a Gen1 and Gen2 into the banner without any major issues. I put up a thread tot he mods a few weeks ago asking for input but most seem to have not been online. Looking to recruit some more to help maintain the site. Let me know if anybody is interested.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hey Jeff. It actually only happens when you're not signed-in. I was permanently signed-in, but the site makeover caused me to have to log in, and while browsing before that is when I saw the green links. When logged in, they are red. So no big deal. Thanks for the follow up.

First time trying it out, and it caught me off guard a bit. Looks pretty good, but yeah, a Gen 1 / Gen 2 / Gen 3 banner would be appreciated.

Login redirect url incorrect

When I goto kawasakiversys.com (no www) and login, the redirecturl is wrong and I get a 404 error.

Also, on the Your Notifications the first time I clicked on New Post Quotes (of which I had 1) I got a 404...just tried again and it worked.. so might be a first time creating kind of thing.

Still...liking the site! I went with the dark theme, but that's mostly because I like most of my themes a little darker.
