...In the early morning of July 25th we were hacked and bad code was added to our pages. Google was quick on the scene to alert me and our visitors to what happend (we have a close relationship with Google) and we had everything back up and running within 2 hours. I personally want to apologise for this as I take my visitors security very seriously and feel quite embarassed this happend and I'm very sorry for any inconvenience! I assure you Total Motorcycle is 100% clean and will always remain one of the safest sites you can visit. 2013 Kawasaki Motorcycle Model Guide

Oh, I see, it looks like you just cropped a bit of the next headline into your post, not actually in the statement...

No, you do have good eyes and great timing Doug! When I create a new section I just copy/paste it and re-word the entire thing but for the link I forgot to rename it and posted it as you had it above, about 10 mins after I realised my mistake and fixed it, so dang, you a quick on the draw!! :D
