Some things just don't work.

So true, and when it comes to this forum, it's been discussed more than once.

The advertisements were an issue at one time, seem OK now, and the web site has been less than user friendly from time to time, but, like you said, some things just don't work.

To make it work, now there is a question.

Make the forum simpler, with fewer "rooms"

Easier to access to the forum, keep it quick and simple.

Limit advertisements and never ever allow pop-ups.

Enjoy some interaction from staff, albeit that can be a double edged sword.

Ask vendors to participate in the forum.

I'm thinking forums are old-school.  Like that group of blue hairs hogging up a table at McDonalds drinking the free senior coffee.  Which begs the question:  with average age of a motorcyclist nowadays hovering around 153, why isn't this forum more popular?

I thought this forum was awesome, except maybe for it's dead-ness.

I have been out riding a lot these last several days.

Lotta old folks out there.

A good question, and I'm sure that if we were granted a limited budget and a nominal number of test motorcycles, we could provide some answers.
