Default new video on site home page

I want to start off by saying that I really appreciate this site and all the awesome contributing members. This is the best run forum I have ever been a member of and that all comes down to the moderation staff and the administrators. So....well done everyone!

now on to the gripe.....

That new video that automatically plays on the home page......obnoxious! The video is well made and looks like it probably cost a fair amount of money but the auto-play and incredibly loud volume bring me back to the days of surfing on AOL after getting my first high speed connection and every site had offensively loud pop ups that played automatically and sometimes multiple ads at once.

Also.....do we really need pretty girls telling us about KLRs? I mean don't get me wrong....theres nothing wrong a couple of pretty girls....but is the KLR community the right demographic for that kind of marketing strategy? We are a bunch of weirdos that just cant let an old horse go out to pasture.....we choose function, low cost, and simplicity......scantily clad women are none of these things. I would be willing to bet that most new comers to the site are as equally cheap and seeking free advice on their old tractors. I just feel that the video does not represent the community very well I guess. If we wanted all the ladies we would have bought sport bikes......those guys get all the ladies right?

OK I'm done....complaint over. Wont happen again. Ban me if you must.

I was looking for KLR650 on another computer and up popped those girls! I though I was being redirected to a porn site and bailed instantly. I did not realize it was this forum!
