    Looks good and decent speed. Good work!

    A few things to consider:

    I'm not crazy about the light text on dark background (its a bit hard to read on a dark background for long periods of time).

    The header graphic could probably be a bit less tall to avoid taking up so much space above the fold.

    Doesn't appear to be mobile optimized.

    Other than that, looks great.

    Ok, I'm not a pro at reviewing sites, but here are my impressions:

    1) Your site logo makes it obvious that you are using a template (even if you're not). I never like to use plain text in/over my logo's because it looks like I have zero graphics talent and just used a template and slapped the text over top of it.

    2) Flash element and text on index page - very nice. Crisp, good choice of text size and color.

    3) Overall the index page other than the logo text looks good to me - the text is just a slightly bit small for me to read comfortably at a distance but not overly so.

    4) The extended URLs on the shop page (Unlimitedcycles.net: Shop) with the orange color are harder to read with the multi-line. I would either make them a bit bigger text size or use a shorter anchor link along with the rest in a non-linked description.

    Overall, I think the site looks decent, but needs some tweaking.

    I really like the header with the motorcycle. I don't see social media links though.

      The site looks okay, maybe have some more pictures of sexy biker girls - this always improves sales (sexy girl pics)

      However, what I noticed was that you're written copy needs improvement.
      Just my 2cents worth...

      Steven...Good luck with you're site

    Wow can't thank you enough for all your input. I was really surprised, this forum is full of information can't stop reading.

    I do have a question for someone.

    In WordPress how can you change the main screen of a website to just show the current blogs?

    I have been fighting with this for half the day now but no coding seems to work. I don't want the comments showing.

    I know this must be in the main index code but can't figure out how to change it.

    My template only lets me change the page order not the content order. When I try to make a static page none of the blogs show just the comments.

    Any feed back would be great. Thanks again all!

    It looks a little to HTML editor designed for my liking. I would suggest you change the white Google adsense adds to blend with the background color.

    It doesn't look streamlined enough for my liking. Change the fonts to something really professional looking, especially your menu bar. It looks like a good start.

    It looks really nice, but I always leave websites that have light text on dark backgrounds.

    I only leave because when I stare at it too long and then look away, all I can see faint black and white strips over everything else I look at for a minute or so.

    I believe that it was Bloomberg News who use to do this and although I was interested in the articles, I just can't look at it. I don't know what percentage of people have the same problem, but for those who do, they will probably leave also.

    I would keep the dark overall look but use a black on white content area.

    I noticed you have a Harley logo on your header image. You might want to check on whether you have the rights to display that and the other brands on your background. Some corporations can be pretty harsh on using their trademarks.
    I would expect to see your site name on the site itself somewhere. If you're going to brand yourself, you'll want that visible.
    As others have said, the content quality is a little low.
    There's a lot of potential there, though. Good luck!

    Initial impact: clear, crisp, clean, but also appears from a template.
    Nice "questions" interface on far right.
    What's with the two QR codes when you scroll down? Why are there two instead of one?
    I agree with an earlier poster about readability of that font type and size. Any chance you can incorporate an option for viewers to determine the size/layout of the gallery? Currently it feels slammed with stuff. If you did front page like you've got part shop set up visually, I'd be happier as a user.

    Also, consider increasing the size of your top menu text (Blog, About, etc.)

    The About page reads generically and gives little sense of passion or personality. Why not show a pic of you and your hot woman on a bike? Or something like that.

    FWIW, I enjoyed landing on your site. It felt clean and crisp.

    Hope this is useful in some way.

    Best,
    gz

    Couple of things to consider:

    1. What is it that you're trying to do with the site?
    You might want to put that as your tag line or in the header. E.g. "Used Parts and Repair Tips for 1979 through 1989 Harley Softails" (disclaimer...I know nothing about motorcycles). The more specific your site (the more niche oriented), the better off you and your audience will be.

    You benefit because you can establish your expertise and start owning that niche ("riches in niches" and all that). You know what content and how to tailor it for your audience.

    Your audience benefits because they know exactly where they can go to find what they're looking for.

    Of course, you'll have to do the research to see if the niche you're addressing has the right numbers and buyer profile.

    2. Get rid of the translate function. It's just taking up space, and the translations are guaranteed garbage.

    3. If the secret vehicle auction (the clickbank product) is really what you're selling, then you should create some kind of related report to use as a lever to grow your email list. Your content on your blog (and your entire site, really) should be geared to something along the lines of that product.

    My *free* advice (you get what you pay for, in other words).

    d3.

    For a start I would change the colouring used. White on black not great for reading. What is the primary goal of your site?

    Its too late to worry about the font and background coloring now.
    At least it is different.

    I cant make up my mind whether the Google Ads should be the same color or if , by standing out, it is better to make it stand out... :confused:

    The site looks great. I think you should place the search bar on the right side however. It looks out of place on the left side.

    Wow! wasn't checking this thread for a few days, but no we'll check it on a daily basis. Thanks again for all the feedback it been great! Were in the process of tweaking the site to get it all working. The font issues mentioned by all will be addressed we just haven't found the right plugin as of yet. The few we tried didn't work out the way we hoped.

    Your site is looking professional and also informative.
    If you make your homepage smaller then now I think it will be more beautiful.

    your site is looking attractive and pretty much interesting i believe,
    But I don't think the color combination is perfect,
    you may try some cool color like green and white.
    may be it'll be more beautiful.
