Going out on a limb and stating that the BMW /5 is one of the all time great motos. If not for its looks, for its functionality, simplicity, repairability, and ridablity.
Beautiful-

Factory color?

No, Blue Ridge Pkway last week. Non-cooked HDR in attempts to compensate for the dreary weather / lighting.

Thanks :-)

You have to link it from some other online place it's stored.

Ok, just giving this a try. On the way back between Brownsville and Corpus I crossed this creek and decided to pull over. The sand was packed hard and no trouble riding or even to park upright. After the photo I jumped a few dunes...lugauge and all. This might also be a good place to camp.

If the pic doesnt work it's not my fault....IT'S THIS DAMN COMPUTER!!!

Well, maybe the computer is trying. So i pushed the "Insert Image" button and pasted the link inside but as you can see it only shows a white box with a red X inside. What gives?

Make sure it's a photo file, not just the url location.
So it should have a .jpg, .gif, .png or some such suffix at the end.

flikr is picky about which images can be embedded in other sites.

your image here, http://www.flickr.com/photos/8235525...in/photostream seems to be protected, too.

there ya go

I went to the page where you can view all sizes

http://www.flickr.com/photos/82355254@N06/8080142900/sizes/z/in/photostream/

I picked the medium size and then just right clicked on the image, went to properties and copied the .jpg address

I pasted that into the image box here

Hope that makes sense and helps you in the future

I stopped in a parking lot to have lunch and was suddenly surrounded by this group of (future) adventure bikers. They really made my day. I love kids!




Thanks for your help with the pics guys. Stop by the restaurant sometime and lunch is on me.

That's why I stopped using Flickr, they changed the rules a couple of years ago and now it's just too much trouble to embed pictures on other sites. I don't use them anymore.

So that leads into my next question...Which service do you use now?

For posting photos on forums like ADVRider, I use photobucket.com

It's free, and it works well enough for what it is. I usually upload low resolution photos at 800 x 600 pixels because I only use photobucket for linking to the files. For having online storage of my digital photos that I want to keep, then it's worth paying for a more professional service like SmugMug.
