Lame as promised. Embarrassingly close to my house....

Don't want to hold up the tag though.

Can anyone explain WTF is wrong with uploading pix to this forum? I grabbed the Joppa Hill tag about 9:30 this evening, (I live 2 miles south and commute past it every work day), and re-sized the jpeg but I get repeated "failed to upload file" errors.

This tag would have ended my Tag-O-Rama virginity. Oh, the shame.

There is a maximum file size for images when you upload them as attachments. What most people do is upload pics to a photo site like flicker or smugmug and then include the pic as a link.

Yeah, kind of a pain but this is the way most forum sites work (at least this one and klr650.net which really are the only ones I do but I imagine everybody uses basically the same software to run these things).

Can't believe a competitor would help this way, but thanks HH !

As Chevy Chase asked Bill Murray: "Can you get me a ruling on this?" My Tundra pickup in is the pic, not a bike. Maybe the rules said two wheels instead of motorcycle. I've got two wheels, and another two. I could not be bothered with ATGATT this late, so caged it 2 miles north to the tag.

I would be glad to help, but afraid it won't count without the bike...

Your bike has to be in the TAG picture.
You could still suit-up and ride out again and take a cool night-time pic like Doc GS did in the Mass TOR.

Okay, be a purist. But its the same truck (and trailer), in the Beemer anonymous book ready to help riders. Yes, the ones from Milwaukee, too. :)

I don't know why that's not showing up on his post, but here's the pic Art sent me:

Glad you got the bike out and did the tag for real! Partly because otherwise I would have felt the need to get up early tomorrow to snag it and I really am NOT a morning person!
