Thanks For Making the Site Work Faster

That's all I asked for and I did it for everyone here that was affected by the lag.

Sorry if anyone was offended as it certainly wasn't my original intent.

Now if we can get rid of the ads that pop up in the middle of a page so we can read the posts.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Mine too. I think it's just part of the gig.

Adblock works well for websites on the computer.
I get no ads here, and none on places like youtoob.

The phone?
That's a different story. I don't think they want phones to be ad free.

Pisses me off when I'm out riding.


It appears as though the solution to the speed of the site was to 86 gifs.

(So you'll just to have to try and remember the gif of the guy laying back on his bike with no hands while using his cell phone on the freeway.)

You can download an Ad Block Browser from both the App Store and Google. Works great for eliminating all of the intrusive and unwanted banner ads. When our corporate overlords took over and decided to try to make this community a money generating source, I quickly adopted a no-ads policy of my own.
