    I've noticed the same thing. I even submitted a new thread today to see what would happen and the new topic was accepted as if nothing was wrong but when I was thrown back to the discussion area it was again empty. My new thread was not there. I suspect they are having technical problems of some sort. I emailed the administrator but got no response. This could be bad - there were a lot of good threads on the YZ/WR250F. I hope everything is not lost. :(

    It's the gray wire! disconnect it and Thumpertalk will run like it is supposed too!

    Yeah, I'm having Thumpertalk withdrawls too. :think Hmmm, maybe Yamaha realized that we were figuring out too many secrets on the WR and had the site hacked to remove all the valuable info that was there. ;)
    I'm sure Bryan has everything backed-up so maybe he'll get her back up and running soon. I certainly hope so!!!!!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. I'm glad it's the site and not my computer! Sometimes using a Mac makes you think the world is out to get you! Anyway, hope the forums are back up soon.

    I saw zero posts in the discussions also. I used the Email notice links after I got replies to a thread I posted two days ago and it took me to my thread. But in the last two days I haven't seen any posts in the DRZ discussion area.

    I suspect it is Taffy.
    He probably hatched some virus that killed his website.
    Maybe he changed the name to TaffyTalk...

    Hey folks,

    Boy is tyhe dirt bike community a small one:)

    I'm surprised to see DR leave this post up, Thanks DRN.

    I have been in contact with Bryan and he is working on it. I'm going to talk with him later today and I'll post the status here, if the thread is still here;)

    Thanks for you patience.

    I go both sites, I have been having TT withdrawal too. I could access the yamaha pages but not the DRZ page. I thought Suzuki hacked the site cause of the watering out of DRZ's;)

    I just talked to Bryan and there is a problem with the company that supplies access to the web. We're concerned because they are not answering their tech support phone line........OH NO!

    I was just about to ask the same question here.

    Lets hope this is not too serious, they had some great info in the DRZ.

    Kali, speak to Bryan, maybe he can set up a TTR discussion board in the Yamaha section.

    :silly:

    The biggest, shiniest, Titanium alloy, with extra jetting capcity and gravity flow return spring barrels that'll cause your TTR to shot flames and scare away the competition! :confused: ;) :p

    I thought maybe my last comment to someone asking about knee braces and me saying I have land for sale in Florida got me booted :)

    It's back up, but has anyone else had trouble posting? I tried, but it didn't recognize my user name or password.
