SPAM Filter Kept Me From Registering Until Today

Hello All!

I am glad to finally be registered to the site, though I have been using this site for some time.

SPAM FILTER ISSUE During Registration:

Just a quick notice about the SPAM filter. I attempted to register from a couple different locations (under different IP addresses), but was unable to register.

Apparently, there is a SPAM filter that protects the site from registration by robots or SPAMMERS.

That's perfect, no problem there.

However the message recommends that the rejected registrant contact an administrator. However, there is no way to contact an administrator currently. I even looked up the registrar information to see if I could contact someone, but alas, I could not.

Is there anyone who might be willing to assume that role in the event other people are running into SPAM filter problems the way I was and finding they can't register either?

I think the filter is based on reports by private third party entities that have found reported issues with specific IP blocks. Not sure. All I know is that I have never had such a hard time registering for anything and it's conceivable the SPAM filter is a little too aggressive.

HOW DID I FINALLY REGISTER:

I finally came to my wife's work with my laptop and was able to register. I finally feel accepted.

Welcome. Sorry about the hassle. There is virtually zero administration here. The owners own a bunch of forums that they buy from people, and make cash off the ads. They don't actively moderate or watch their forums.

Thanks all!

Yeah, that's what it appeared to me thtanner. Hopefully there aren't many others who have similar issues.

I have a 2006 VN750 which I paid $3500 with 6895 miles, no rust, sounds & runs like a gem. I did have to pull the battery and battery cage out to remove corrosion. I didn't migrate the RR at the time, though it had some mild exposure to corrosion as well which I cleaned. I put in a shorai battery to replace the old battery, changed the oil and a few other maintenance things.

I am pretty familiar with all the recommendations from this forum regarding preventative maintenance and plan to address them soon.

I've had the bike for about 5-6 weeks now. I bought the bike because it was the design I liked. I used to have an 85/86 Shadow 700 which looked very similar to this model. All the current models have gone to an every greater Harley-esque look and I wanted that more old-school 80's metric bike look. A 2006 vn750 was the logical choice.

At any rate, it's been a long time since I have spent some much time reading forums and I am glad that you guys are here and this forum is still active. Very cool.

hey G...The Shorai battery is not an AGM , but one of the new lithium ion batteries that are supposed to be in better than AGM's.

Lighter by far, and smaller than lead/acid batteries the Lithium Ion technology has a much longer storage life...making trickle chargers virtually unneeded.

Only issue so far is they have not been on the market long so the claims of 6-8 year lifespans has little data to back it up.

There are some issue with cold temps, and being new.... they cost more than AGMs..

Wasn't there an issue with the "correct" sized one for our bikes lacking the CCA to start it properly, even though its advertised over 200CCA? I think they suggested the "18" sized battery. Maybe I am mistaken?
