Review Please: Motorcycle Enthusiasts' Site
I was wondering if you kind folks could provide me with an honest review of the following web site:
I'm looking for feedback about what it looks like in your browser, what you like/don't like, etc. Don't hold anything back - I can take it!
Things I know and am working on:
The 'Scrapbook' area and ads are an old page just copied and pasted in. I am working my way to them and will do some kind of nice web photo album, like with the Hodaka Museum page.
The ordering process is being changed as well, since we've had some folks saying that they don't want to use Paypal to check out, so we're revamping to change that and allow the user to choose what type of checkout they want... but that won't be done for a couple of weeks.
Anyhow, let me know what you think!
I selected your page to review because
I'm a motorcycle enthusiast. Even so,I'm not familiar with Hodaka.
Sadly, instead of learning about the brand the focus seems to be on your sausage business. I had some really good Italian sausages for dinner tonight but I'm not interested in reading about them on a motorcycle site. It makes me feel you are less than fully dedicated to the motorcycles.
I could certainly understand you putting a link to your other business and if this is just a vanity site for your friends to enjoy you can put whatever you want. No offense meant, but I thought this site was about motorcycles.

I like your site.
My critics are similar to the ones above. I noticed your "Article, Ads & Fun" changes to "Ads, Articles & Fun". You may want to correct this.
I believe that your credit cards at the top should be at the bottom. This may not be true. Test both places and see which leads to more sales. When you test, only change one thing at a time and then test; If there are any changes is sales, then you’ll know what caused it.
Personally, I would make it more of a priority to communicate what benefits your site provides. The first thing you promote is that you’re doing changes to the site. I would make it more prominent that you sell bikes, parts, and provide up to date news about Hodaka bikes. These are your main features and I would make them more prominent on your home page.
I would make your phone and fax number more conspicuous at the top and then erase them from the middle of the page.
Other than that, your site conveys a warm feeling which I like. I get the feeling that Strictly Hodaka Motorcycles is owned by an honest friendly family.
