Site slow and "laggy"

For sometime now (week?) the site has slow and laggy. Visiting the often results in a "this page is no longer responding" message.

I'm experiencing this on two different computers and different internet connections.

Anyone else?

If I weren't such a persistent guy I would probably just leave the site for another forum and I suspect many are.

Yes, it is slow. There are background ads that keep trying to load. It even affects the ability to type responses.

It is any site that uses vBulletin. I've seen this same slowdown on other vBulletin sites I visit.

Yes but this site better than most on/off IMO so have other stuff to go to while it usually loads or does right. Am a old truck/car nut so lots of those places to go back and forth on.

It's been a little slower for me here on occasion but not enough for me to check the lower left corner to see where it might be hanging. ADVRider has gotten really slow and each hang has been on so it isn't any third party loading holding things up. Neither has gotten to the point of failure to load.

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

Unless I log on can not get to move sometimes.Often just want to look over anything new and can not till a log on unlike other sites. Still well worth the trouble IMO. Like all the help on troubles here and good ideas. All so some really good laughs some times. Laugh at your self and others together is good for you IMO.

I have certainly noticed ADV being WAY slow lately. Cannot say I am seeing that here, yet, but I can tell you that a couple other Vertical Scope sites are really acting weird. Pages jumping up and down when you try to scroll, not staying in place, etc. Maybe they need some maintenance on servers?

I run Chrome.

Mine will load, but I have lost posts in the process of writing them due to the site locking up. I am really concerned about the decline in site views over the last few years. Even though V-Strom ownership has increased significantly in this time site views are 1/3 since VS took over. The security issue certainly hurt, but the problems people experienced trying to re-register and sign up as new members, and now the laggy slow site must be taking its toll on participation.

I'm going to self censure at this point in the post.

yes profit is not a dirty word but there is way more jangle running here than most forums and it was just unmanageable until I added fair ad blocker plug in on chrome reports 66 ads being blocked not logged in and 12 logged in on this page alone...logging in helps.

It has been loading quick and normal for me, but I have been using Ghostery to block ads and junk for a couple of years and don't have many issues.
