We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​


If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thanks!

Tried it, didn't like it. Almost immediately exited mobile view.
I'm too old for change, this site has stayed pretty much the same the whole time I've been here,
and that has a lot to do with me staying here so long.

Don't like it at all. Even from the first view which has a modern GSX-R on the banner. I mean seriously! What? This is a vintage bike forum.

I don't like mobile view on any of the forums I am on, primarily because thread updates don't show up on the first page so you have to go to each section to see if there are any new posts. But also, when I tried to load this feedback in mobile view it disappeared into cyberspace, and wouldn't post. Change it back. This site is a bunch of old guys who don't do change!

Leave it the old way!! 8ball pretty much summed it up. Don't like it on Honda twins either, immediately exited Mobil enhanced view.

Click the top left tab on your phone and exit the "enhanced view" and itll take you back to the original view which is what we are all use to.

Please get rid of the modern GSXR as a title cover. Suggestion: Use Mark Burton's Nourish/Triton if he would allow it.
