Am I blind, or does this forum no longer have a top-level link from the main Totalmotorcycle page?

Right at the top : TMW HOME - DAILY NEWS - MODEL INDEX - COOL WALL - ONLINE GAMES - MPG GUIDE

TMW HOME

... but the question is... should I call it something else or put a link somewhere else? Now I need YOUR suggestion. :)

I'd call it "MEMBER FORUMS", that lets visitors know there's another level to the page they could explore.

Also, the Mobile page has no path to the Forums at all. Granted mobile users aren't likely to be big forum users, but a lot of tablets and newer laptops run in "mobile" mode by default.

And as an aside, I'm hearing rumbles in my FB groups that may suggest Forums are coming back in vogue.

I didn't mean at the top of the forum home page, I meant on the main www.totalmotorcycle.com home page. The top-level links there are: Daily News - Guides and Resources - Motorcycle Model Guides - Manufacturers - Online Games. There's no link to the forum at that level on that page. I think there used to be? (There's a link to the forum in the submenu under Guides and Resources, but unless somebody already knew there was a forum, they probably wouldn't go looking for it there.)
