New Members: Understanding The Posting Rules

Im really sorry if this has been asked or is set out in the board rules, however i can't seem to find the board rules or any other threads relating to my question..

I only joined yesterday but when trying to reply to posts or in threads im getting a notice that says i don't have enough privileges to do so. Is this because i am a new member? Or does something need to be activated? Also i am not allowed to view my own profile...

I would gratefully appreciate any help and apologise if this subject is out there somewhere and i've missed it....

Thanks...

Basically you just need more than 3 posts and then you'll be able to post in most other areas (15+ for classified's section).

The reason for this rule is to keep spammers away, which has worked wonders!!

For the life of me I can't post pics or just don't know how to on my I pad

I would rather ride my motorcycle and think about God instead of sitting in church thinking about riding my motorcycle.

I am going to chime in on this one as well. My mobile app allows me to see where I would respond but it doesn't let me in most areas. I have only put up 2 posts, one in the new member area the second was there also with a response to my post. Now this is post 3. I rode these bikes at 2 California superbike schools. Levels 1-4. Now to own one is spectacular.
