If you would like to have a profile, please go to Create Profile page. Fill in your desired username and email address, and you'll be sent a temporary password and link to edit your new profile. Once you log in for the first time, you can change your password, fill in profile info, and upload pictures. Your username will be reserved from then on, meaning no one but you may use it to post articles.

There are some stipulations:

  • Profiles are automatically approved when the Location and Motorcycle(s) fields are filled out and you have made at least one post. Images must be 'approved' before they are publicly visible. We have to do this in order to make sure they are relevant and 'work safe'. An administrator usually takes a look at pending photographs at least once a week, and usually more often than that.
  • When sending pictures, please keep in mind that everyone knows what a stock Ninja 250 in front of a wall looks like. Try to keep things interesting by sending in pictures from different angles, perhaps, or with unique backgrounds, or with you next to or on the bike (actually riding the bike is great). Note that WE WILL NOT, EVER, approve one of the Kawasaki "stock" photos of the 250. Take your own pictures.
  • The longer you hang around, the more photos you can upload. This is why you might be able to upload only 4, but you see some profiles with a dozen or more. Membership has its privileges. :-)
  • To get yourself on the map simply fill in the zipcode field in your profile. If you live outside the U.S., use the latitude and longitude fields instead. To determine these values, use the old map - zoom in to your area, and then click the WhereIsThis radio button and click your area on the map; a popup will tell you your latitude and longitude; note that one or both numbers may have a negative sign. If you live inside the United States, do not use the latitude and longitude fields.
