George Bush and Homeland Security are now requiring that it be placed on all bike forums.


DO NOT listen to any of the posts above, that suggest to click on the link. DO NOT click on this link. If you do, George will have direct access to all of the contents of your PC.

I never noticed it before either. But now I can't stay away from it.

My cursor hovered over and around it for a while, until...

I clicked it.

Then I left, came back and clicked it again...

and again and again and...

I think I need help.

Only if you have broad band. If you have dial up it can bog down & lock up your browser & computer.

OK, Ok, you guys had your fun. I DO have dial up and when I click it all I get is the header.

It just figures that yet another link that discriminates against all of us in the hinter lands that
must use dial up is here. If "We all" can't use it take the damn thing down. I pay for the WHOLE
board not just certain parts of it.

Are you able to have broad band? Is it available in your area? If it is & you don't have it then it is your own fault for the slow speed. For the life of me, aside from not being able to afford it, I can not figure out why anyone would want to or choose to keep dial up. When I mention broad band I mean either cable or DSL, not satellite. I can understand if satellite broad band is the only thing available & you don't have it because it is very expensive.

I have dial up also. Like I said, it just takes you to a bunch of posts. Nothing special. Why don't you try it and give it a few minutes to download.

Pretty confident it was a joke. Everything else in this thread, by contrast, is dead serious.
