Hello all. New guy in South West Florida.
Riding season started a few weeks ago but still to warm to fully enjoy riding
on my 1 year old to me 1999 Concours with 43k miles.

Anyone lately try to place an order with Murphy's web site?
I'm getting massage that his security certificate expired a couple days ago and my connection is not Private. :??:

Welcome Biczek to the COG!. I'm relatively new - as full member - myself as I was a Forum Subscriber for far too long.

Sorry, I've not ordered from Murph's in a while so can't help there ...

Welcome aboard. I just sold my '99 with 234k miles on it.

I live SE of Ocala.

We are having a little weekend get together in late March up in Fellsmere, come join us.

Linky to the thread:

http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php?topic=68598.0

And do check out the SE section of Rides and events for stuff going on.

Welcome! Lots of us in Florida hanging around here, so as SteveJ said, check out the calendar and come out to an event.

In addition to the Fellsmere weekend, there's the "Last Blast" on 12/30: http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php?topic=68134.0

Although the certificate on Murph's site is expired, it appears to be correct for his site. Probably Gary hasn't realized it's renewal time. Since I've ordered from him before, I doubt I'd give it a second thought this soon after expiration. However, everyone has to determine their own comfort with cybersecurity issues, so don't take this as a recommendation.

Thanks guys for warm welcome and I'll keep in mind the events.

I send Gary email and called him but no response from him  :(

I ordered some stuff from Murph's a couple weeks ago. Block off plates and something else (ordered too many parts too quickly). I had no issues, but that security certificate does sound kinda sketch. My browser didn't pop anything up like that.

Gary works at a real job all week, and often odd shifts, so he may not get right back to you with a call, not to worry, he is beyond reproach with his business..

as for the certificate notice, I didn't get it and just went on, so I suggest you go into your computer, and clear all your cached webpages and stuff, and try again. Sometimes those things prevent or cause this.

I did that and full scan with no effect.

After 2 weeks I tried to log on my account and everything is good again so I could place an order  :)

It had nothing to do with local cache or cookies. Gary renewed his certificate Monday.
