OMG! Site barely usable?

Just joined, but holy crap! Does premium subscription make the site usable (disable ads, etc)?

This is your second post on this subject I see. I am not a premium member and have no problems at all.

I've never had a problem. Of course I'm just hanging out learning about my new bike. Too much spam? Quit downloading porn!

No ads for me at all. Do you use a pop-up blocker of any kind? What browser? IE, Chrome, FireFox, Safari?

Ad blocker works wonders.

There is a very good possibility you have adware on your computer. Adblock Plus will only stop ads from the site. If your computer is infected, it won't help.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

For sure.

I browse this site on a computer (firefox and/or chrome), laptop, chromebook, tablet, and mobile... I have never found the site unusable or full of ads.
