Because I've presently got technical incompetences with the board, password resets presently do not work automatic like.
If you can't login, click here please.
If you have any problem logging in, please don't bother waiting and get in touch. Email right to the usual address (admin at...), use the contact form (bottom of index and most other pages), post in the Midget Circus, or message me directly on Facebook.
I should get the message within a few hours, but under rare circumstances, it might take me a day.

If you can login no problem, but you wish to avoid problem, try checking the "Remember Me" box where you login. I've meddled with the settings there, so even if you return here only once every couple of weeks, it should remember you fine. Provided you have cookies enabled.

If it won't remember you, and you want to be sure any failure to remember is actually such and not just an oops, please read the following (click the bar to make it "show").
Important infos about cookies
To be remembered, you must have cookies enabled in your browser. Some people prefer using "private" browsing mode - which precludes cookies being placed on your device in the first place.
Some people use regular browsing mode, but may have chosen to disable all cookies in their settings. Sometimes, these people will end up tearing their hair out because a lot of websites just don't work at all, like many online stores, as many e-commerce platforms don't do bugger all without using cookies.
Me, I've got "Self-Destructing Cookies" plugins in my various browsers. Which lets me accept all cookies everywhere, smug in the knowledge that they will be deleted the instant I close that browser tab. I can even set it to delete the cookies only when I close the whole browser window, which is helpful with online stores.
And I can whitelist sites like the board, so the plugin doesn't mess with those cookies at all.

And you must use the same browser, on the same machine. Unless you're using something like a cookie manager that syncs to all your devices and things, your apple browser on your ipad won't have the delicious cookies chrome has on your PC. And unless google now manages cookies between your devices (who knows what the fuck they do), even chrome on your Android won't have the same cookies as chrome on your notebook, or chrome on your other Android.

Once upon a when, we've had a data breach (maybe).
Click here if you don't know what that's about.
If you've visited the forum at any time after November 18, 2020, you will have seen the message about a supposed data breach that may have exposed passwords. I know you will have seen it because, until today, there was a big general announcement right at the top of the everything.
Seeing how it's been nearly 18 months since that, with no further alarms getting rung, and how everyone has had 758,214 opportunities to take a minute to think about the security of their passwords, I've taken that notice down.
Follow this link for all the info that has transpired about the whole mess.

You may dismiss this message by clicking the dark X in the top right hand corner. You may have to mouse-over to see it. I assure you it's there.

Acident data, useful or no?

The place to come if you've been with us for years or it's your first time here. General yakking about anything motorcycle related. Think of it as the internet coffeehouse for the UTMC.

Acident data, useful or no?

Interesting article over on RevZilla:

Ask the doc: What we don't know about motorcycle crashes

From the Hurt Report of the 1970s to recent studies that have drawn hundreds of reader comments here at Common Tread, there have been many attempts to study motorcycle crashes. And yet, there's still a lot we don't know.

While there is a lot of data collected on us all the time, that doesn't mean we have the data we need to understand how and why motorcyclists crash, and what the repercussions are.

For example, hospitals — and trauma centers, in particular — collect lots of data about those who are injured. Verified trauma centers also generally upload precise pieces of data into a national database called the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB), and other data regarding inpatient care into another database, the Trauma Quality Improvement Project (TQIP). TQIP is related to the same kind of databank that looks at more general surgical outcomes, the National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (NSQIP), which was birthed by the Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Project (VASQIP).
