    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Generally slower over a dialup connection, certainly not noticably faster, with more security wickets than my bank account site including ( I think ) TWO userID's and TWO passwords and at least one warning about "best viewed with M$ IE". My rating would be two giant steps backward !!

    Interesting. It's significantly faster here on cable. Page loads are almost instantaneous.

    Once you've got the cookies on your machine, log in should be a snap. For what it's worth, I'm using Mozilla Firefox as my browser and it works fine.

    We're going from two user ID's and passwords, to one user ID and password. The OLD site, between the plain jane MOA site and secure services (where, for example, you'd register for a rally), used two different logins. Now you'll use just one. There will be some bumps in the road, but you should see an improved user experience.

    I'm on cable and the pages are almost instantaneous where before there was a 10 second (or more) delay on loading.

    Most of the web team is using non Microsoft Browsers so that is surprising. If it pops up again, can you tell us where it pops up?

    For me, I now have a reason to go wired instead of wireless, cause it is even faster now than my wireless can serve the pages.
