Webwizrd has changed the registration process. The Bots were signing up and easily getting past the Captchas.

We've got about 13 human members but total registration was about 1400. He temporarily disabled the registration process and deleted all the Bots.

Now new applicants will have to answer a simple, motorcycle related question to get on board.

Hopefully this slows things down.
