A few months ago we pulled ADV out of SmugMug's data centers. It was a great run there for 15 years because they gave us free hosting and support. However, they got busy buying Flickr so we couldn't get attention for upgrades. Moving it was a big challenge but @SpecialKev aced it. He made us more secure in the process by upgrading to https and migrating to the most recent version of the software that powers us. To pay for our newfound freedom, we had to start running ads, but we're working on a subscription plan for people who don't want ads (me!). We have a new member of the ADV team, @Pauladv , who @rudy1220 has known for years. He is putting together a page of articles that will serve as ADV's home page. Here's work-in-progress with some placeholder text: https://staging.advrider.com/ The hope is to become an unbiased ADV voice for the industry—for riders by riders so we can get first looks to review bikes and gear, break industry news, cover insider stories from pro riders, provide coverage of events like Dakar, AIMExpo in Vegas, etc. The intent is to tap some of you to write stories, and to recruit pros & storytellers in the industry. I'm working on a story about the Central Rally (which was awesome!) and another about @Cannonshot , the amazing guy who has taken on the role of head mod, not an easy thing to do. Cannonshot: Rudy and Paul are also working on a newsletter to alert us of the best stories & forum posts. They've been working hard on this stuff for awhile, so hopefully you'll start seeing it in September. Questions? Comments? Never have known you to be shy.
