i think he forgot to do the carburator vent T-mod.  if you don't do this mod, the KLR will stall in about 1 foot of water, as soon as the carb vent touches the water!

1) flickr will tell you that it does not count as an ad, because yahoo owns flickr.
2) "There is no way to disable this forced tool bar" - actually there are ways (on some browsers), but they require installing add-ons.  here are solutions that works well for Chrome:

Google is shoving more ads in our throats with the new gmail layout. Dislike. The new gmail is especially bad on small screens like netbooks, even with their "compact" layout.

i'm really annoyed that google profile policy still does not allows me to set my profile name to "Loupiote".

Google requires two names (a first name and a last name). This is also ridiculous, since there are many cultures on the planet where people have a single name. granted, they are in Africa and Asia, but are those markets that google should alienate? jeeez!

great article here showing the complete inadequacy of google+ profile name policy:

http://infotrope.net/2011/07/22/ive-been-suspended-from-google-plus/

i am in the same situation as this guy: many people know me as "Loupiote" (my photographer's nickname), other people know my as "Tristan" (which is the second part of my first-name "Jean-Tristan" on my official government papers), but except for my familly and the government, almost no-one knows me by my last name "Savatier". - so the google+ name policy completely fails for me!

hilarious botched google voice recognition in a phone call that i received today:

"Hello, Tristan, My name is munitions difficult. The from cos phone next victim of the reason I'm calling you. I'm forth in the position. The form a client in if any belt companies looking. What up man. Postal back until swinging yo C plus plus data analysis much in building in I wonder"

here a solution that works well to remove the yahoo bar :

(with also an option to unfloat the big back flickr bar, to free-up more space on the display).

Thanks for the link. I'll use it, but of course it's a local fix, not a network wide one.

+John Mueller  i found the cause of the bug that causes g+ to "insist" that the name of my flickr account must be "jean-francois", even though it suggest the correct url for my flickr profile.

i did a "member search" on flickr, and i found:

http://www.flickr.com/search/people/?m=names&q=loupiote

it shows:
1) my screen name is "loupiote (Old Skool)" and my flickr URL is http://www.flickr.com/photos/loupiote/

2) there is another account with screen name = "loupiote" and flickr URL = http://www.flickr.com/photos/23482416@N02/
and the name associated to this account is "jean-francois".

so that's where g+ gets that name.  apparently g+ is very confused for some reason, and it keeps insisting that my flickr name is jean-francois!
i.e. if i go edit my g+ profile, and i edit the "Other Profiles" section, g+ still says:

Google has found some public pages that you can add to your profile. Learn more
[flickr] jean-francois (but the URL is in fact mine)

this needs to be fixed!!!

note: on flickr, the screen-name and the account URL are unrelated. in my case, the word "loupiote" is part of my screen name, and it is used as my flickr url shortcut, but for most people it is not that way, and it is very possible to have user with screen-name "aaaaa" using url flickr.com/photos/bbbbb and user with screen-name "bbbbb" using url flickr.com/photos/aaaaa .

almost all the questions that i recently posted on the google webmaster central forum are unanswered. TC (top contributors) do not know the answers, and no-one from google chims in. in some cases, the issues that i report could be google bugs.  this is very frustrating...

this morning, can't sign into my google account with Chrome (with both my windows 7 and my windows XP systems). clearly google broke something. i was able to sign-in with FF. but with chrome, google asks me to enter a captcha, and then it loops on the singn-in page again. FRUSTRATING!!!

hi john! "Google+ seems pretty busy to me," wow!!!! that means that you have not seen facebook lately. the traffic i see on my facebook social "circle" of friends is at least 50 times heavier that what i see on g+. and i am not exaggerating a bit. as for my photos, i don't bother posting them on g+, because all my contacts and friends are on FB (1000+ people follow my photo page on FB - https://www.facebook.com/loupiote.photography - you should "like" it!).... and i don't like the way g+ display images with no captions (and g+ seems to encourage people to download posted images, while i vastly prefer people "sharing" them). i keep an eye on g+ for a 1 min or 2 every day, while i am using FB all day long (that's where all my friends are, for real, except those that are not on any social network). i think that James Whittaker paints a correct picture of the g+ fiasco. and the chances that FB would go bankrupt and sink are quite remote (that would be the only way for g+ to get traction). seriously, why would i put a "g+" badge on my site with a link to my g+ profile? if you look at the stats, even having a "+1" button might not justify the real-estate it uses on my pages. wake up, google!
