Update, 2020/12/01
Please see announcement in Forum Stuff for details.

Today, 2020/11/18, suspicions have been expressed that there has been a data breach.
At least some DisMembers' login data may have been compromised.
While the facts behind those suspicions have not yet been established, your Administerrerr is treating them as credible. He is looking into this. He will try and beef up security.
Even if you did so only recently:
Please change your password!
Please click here, or use the menu ( button) to navigate to the the User Control Panel, therein to the Profile Tab, and there click Edit Account Settings. You should get it from there on.
For a safe password that will resist brute-force attempts (which we have been subject to in the past), please use upper and lower case letters, AND numerals, AND symbols, and make it as long as you feel feasible. 16 characters seems to be recommended these days.
DO NOT use a password you also use elsewhere.
While your Administerrerr tries to keep this place safe. Get real. Security here is mostly by obscurity, that is, no one serious enough to crack us like a rotten egg is likely to even bother. But if one does, you don't want the safety of your email of facebook or whatever to depend on one mostly blind, mostly clueless autodidact who can't work at this more than a few hours at a time, if that much.

If you used a password here that you also used elsewhere, you must set a new password there, also!
A different password, this time. If someone did breach us, the first thing they are likely to do with your login credentials is to try them out elsewhere. Login credentials compromised here are compromised everywhere else, also. If you did reuse a password, but with a different email, your administerrerrerr strongly urges you NOT rely on that different email keeping you safe. This whole thing runs on a database. That means your half-blind administerrerrerr can operate a database. Do you honestly think identity thieves, and those who sell them passwords by the ten-thousands, won't?
If you get an error message about an invalid form, click here.
Every form you can debauch is on a time limit. Even if you feel you've been reasonably quick, some browsers seem to think otherwise.
Recommendation: type your password in something like a text editor or word processor, highlight (making sure not to highlight any leading or trailing spaces), copy, then reload the account settings page, paste, paste, debauch, and be all quick about it. Like Dan said, back in the when. Be like the housefly, and see the events of the world unfold in liquid slowness, or something to that effect.
If you cannot reset a forgotten password, click here.
The "I forgot my password" function has been buggy for a while, I apologize. I will look into that, also, over the next few days.
UPDATE: I have looked into this. I think it should work now, but I can't test it all with my admin accounts. Anyone who tries it, please do let me know whether it works or not.
You yourself, meanwhile, might look into your SPAM folder. I know, I know, but humor me, please.
Also, if you have been around for a bit, try and remember whether the email you entered there was also the email you registered with back in the when. I'm sure the email addresses associated to some user-accounts are still hotmail.
If none of that solves your confound, hit me through the contact form, or grab me via dm on the Facebooks, or if none of that works, speak up in the Midget Circus. I will look out for you there, but I can't guarantee nothing.

2-one of the adjuster nuts on the rear brake pivot arm spun off allowing the pivot arm to slip off the rod.
:shock: :shock:

I did not see that coming... seriously. I did not.
Good to hear it didn't go bad.

EVERYONE! Secure your nuts!!

By the time this was all done I still wanted to go for a ride but I wanted the Harley to think about what it had done so I took the Duke out for a quick spit.

Yes, discipline must be enforced.

If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

I said I have a big stick.

Along the way I have been gathering parts to convert this bike back to mid-position foot controls since I hate not being able to move my legs around. A full OEM kit of mid pegs, mounts and brake/shifter levers has proven to be exorbitantly expensive but I have managed to cobble together almost everything Johnny Cash style for short money. Last night I managed to save myself even more money because while digging through some storage tubs in my garage I found myself staring into the abyss of the Aermacchi parts I have been holding for like 12 years now and low and behold there was an original (albeit Italian) HD footpeg! Rusty and ugly and slightly different than the pure red-blooded American version but it fit and is usable. @Rench gave me shit for keeping the Sprint all this time but who's laughing now?
It's time for Humankind to ditch the imaginary friends of our species' childhood and grow the fuck up.
