Wow... such angst over a password reset.


Gee..... if you can remember;
- Sidestand Up
- Key turned On
- Main Switch turned On
- Pull Brake lever On
- Crack throttle a Tad
- Press Start Button.
to start your engine, it's not that much harder to remember a password.

What got me was how they warned us this was coming a few days ago telling us to change our passwords. So I complied, and then today, it throws my brand new 2 day old password out! If the site was really going to "stop and frisk" everybody today, why bother to delude us into thinking there was a possibility to avoid that if we'd just buy the "easy pass", if you get what I mean? Or better yet couldn't the software just tell that our password was new and not bug us, like ebay recently did?
And yes, the thing went through the 5 chances and then timed out for 15 minutes. But if you try before then, then 15 minutes resets all over again. I just waited a couple of hours to try again.

Got to love 1st world problems...

If it is such a problem to follow the link in your email address, that leads you to the password change tool... you have serious issues that I recommend you step away from the thing you press letters on, then push the button that turns it this thing on/off that gives internet, after unplug it from the wall and just give it away.

Yes I did intend to write it this way as some seem to be from the time where it's the first time they touch this thing they call a computer where you have to change passwords at times.

Here is a password suggestion that would meet all rules: Thisisnot4me!

I too was one that thought when we got the warning the other day, the best thing to do was "PROACTIVE" and changed mine. But then some BOZO decided to JUST change all of them again. Why ask us to change them in the first place if you were going to bottle feed us like babys???

All you that must comment on how others that don't like changing their passwords, who asked you?

My guess is the admins' made some kind of mistake, and to be safe, they had us change our password again. This forced me to click my mouse a few more times than I had planned on, and I had to hire a security specialist because I couldn't think of a strong password on my own. You'd think that with 10+ years of enjoyment and learning under my belt as a forum member, I'd cut BUSA some slack - but this five minute minor nuisance is simply unforgivable. I demand a full refund!

To the newer members who seem flummoxed by this sad affair, quit now and cut your losses. That way you will avoid an equally disastrous malfunction that will surely occur in the next 5 to 7 years.

I visit this site from at least 5 different devices, some of which I don't want to remember my password on.

I heard that the data base of the parent company was breached and the user info was stolen, I assume that is reason for the password reset. I also got a password reset email form the Stromtrooper site.

As far as the ad pop-ups, I use AdBlock, which takes care of all the sites I visit daily.
Both of these worked for me. Not too much of a bother for added security I guess.

Why not use a 37 character password? Each password must contain:
1 Capital letters
2 Lower case letter
3 Numbers
4 Arabic symbols
5 a mathematical equation
6 the length of your forearm
7 the VIN numbers of your last 8 vehicles
8 the pledge of allegiance to the advertising gods who own the site
9 a stool sample

This would help to guard the ultra-sensitive information shared on this site from invading space aliens and the Chinese.

Your missing the point folks. In the twelve years I have been on this board hopefully helping others I've had a simple 4 digit password (the same that I use along with my user name on multiple forums. I have never had an issue and I don't store my personal information here (user name, city I live in, and what I ride only) so why are you forcing me to change it. I'm not an administrator here, I don't keep detailed personal information here like my SSN, I don't have a savings account, checking account, credit cards, or mortgage here so wtf. So just how secure is this new system if the administration was hacked presumably with a much harder password but my old 4 digit one was fine all these years and they got what from me exactly that you can't see in a post I make, lol

So now all these sites go crazy on the individual users when they can't even keep their own administrator access secure. What sucks is each does their own formula for passwords which leads people to use passwords they can't remember meaning they make up a list or file with all this information (a treasure trove for hackers) which just feeds hackers even more.

fwrider don't give them any ideas, I'm sure it will eventually come to that just to sign in to use the internet at some point. Have you seen the list of optional information boxes under the user profile, seriously guys you don't need this and I'm not giving it to you.

Here's an idea, Why not allow me to make the choice of keeping or changing my own password!

Because the world does not revolve around you.

Forum operators have a vested interest in keeping spammers from abusing their sites with spam. The best way to do that is to prevent them from gaining access, either by creating a new user account, or hacking into someone else's existing account.

It is TRIVIAL to let your browser manage your passwords. I don't know any of the passwords for the 25+ sites I use on the web. I don't have to remember ANY of them, because the browser does it for me. Check it out. It's good stuff.

Good thing it is OPTIONAL, eh?

Honestly man - if this issue is causing you such heartache, I hope you're never stricken with any REAL problems - you'd probably just fall apart or become a quivering mass of tears.

This happened on all my Motorcycle.com forums - each one is different - so i have had to do this 3 times , and one i did on my phone - MISTAKE ! dont do that

if they had single sign on - now that would be nice - Also 10 digits and upper, lower, numbers special chars - is a bit much for a forum site, sorry just a bit of overkill
