It's easy and you ought to do it to keep your hydraulic system in good shape.

Brake fluid is not supposed to be black? Who'd a thunk it?

Next thing you'll tell me is to change the air in the tires regularly.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't apprehensive about him riding on the street, but I'm excited about the adventures that lie ahead.

He's a good son and I"m a proud dad.

That's freaking awesome mang. Hook up wit me when your in the neighborhood again. I'll join you guys.

If you have multiple photos they will need to be done one at a time. I open both the adv site and photobucket at the same time and just copy from one and paste to other.

If you have smart phone for pics you can get an app to paste to photobucket really quick. Not hard once you know the steps..
hmmmm ok will do that next time thanx who made it into an actual pic on here???

Here's a copy/paste instruction from the site owner of ADV on how to post pictures here:

SmugMug and Photobucket specialize in image hosting. They do the image resize thing automatically, allow you to post many images per post, and you can post to other message forums. They don't use ADVrider's disk storage or bandwidth, which helps keep ADVrider fast.

In addition, with SmugMug, you get real online albums you can arrange, customize, use for family, travel, hobbies, etc. Disclaimer: I own SmugMug. The idea came from ADVrider and the need for good photo hosting.

You can tag any album at SmugMug as part of the ADVrider community, and it will show up with other member's galleries in the ADVrider community home page, most recent on top.

Photobucket offers limited free accounts and easy upgrade to more capacity for a nominal yearly fee. SmugMug offers a free trial and full accounts for a nominal annual fee.

Once you have an account, you can use the IMG button, , that you see above the area where you type when you post. The image button let's you specify an Internet address (URL) to identify the image.

Here is a tutorial at SmugMug that should answer your Qs.

Clear as mud?

Q: "But... But.... I followed your directions to link to a photo exactly from some other photo sharing site and it didn't work!? Computers really piss me off."

A: Some sites don't appreciate you linking to their images for mindless posts, so they block it.

Note: Other picture hosting sites can be used.

On a different subject, I've been asked to do the Monroe ride again because a bunch of it was missed since it was hunting season and we somehow got separated from each other. We'll run the loop counter clockwise this time and see what happens. Cave should be accessible. This will be a Beast ride so a run through the abandoned train tunnel will be out of the question.............maybe.



First Saturday in June will be the date if its not raining so put it on your calendar.

Ride Report

Well, FBM and I got lost today which is saying something for me. But Eglin is vast and I was sans GPS so we got lost, but we did it quickly...

Anyway - we had a great ride on a cool May morning. Outstanding day!

Hatch, here's your ride report.





Some trails where blocked due to water but for the most part it was good and tacky. Most of the mud came from just a couple section but it was thick and stuck to everything.
