I'm seeing a bunch of red Xes. But if you're using internet explorer, you just right-click on the photo in your gallery, copy, and then right click on your post here and paste. Seems to have worked below.






Great ride report from last year, by the way. Iconic images.

I installed Safari on my PC to see how it goes with that browser. I right-clicked on the image in your smugmug and copied "copy an image address," then clicked the the icon on the toolbar on the adv reply, right-clicked and pasted and got this:

So the missing info in the instruction(at least for us MAC users) is you have to press control click then scroll down to "copy image " to post images.
address": Thanks to all you guys for walking me through how to do it!! clap

I have been out testing out the new ride:

Turns out it doesn't have reverse. I ended up doing a backwards summersault . Steeper than it looks

Laugh Drz400

Took her out for a 300 mile out and back in the hill country. Not as much umph in 4th and 5th gear as my DR650 but I'm a slow rider; I pretty much ride the speed limit. I also took it to the motocross park. She definitely flies better and lands better than the DR.

good news Bad news

Bad news is my trip is going to be delayed a few days because of work. The Good news is Dan Rather (yes THAT Dan Rather) saw my book and wants me to do a portrait of him and a certain red headed stranger
I don't want to Jinx it by actually saying his name because he's skunked me before. But hopefully next monday we shoot and Tuesday or Wednesday I head to New Mexico, Colorado and maybe Utah.

Here's the behind the scenes look of my lil project:

Gave a copy to this epic Adv Rider today and

Lyle Loved it! The consummate gentleman. He actually signed my copy of the book and thanked me for including him in my book. Now if I could just ride motorbikes with him. I doubt I could keep up with him. He rides street and dirt bikes.

Ok, done. Now can I have a vacation?

I am really starting to pack for my trip now. I enjoyed making this photo for Dan Rather as my last day of work. Now, forgive me but I would "Rather" be riding!

Great stuff. Your book looks awesome and I will pick one up. You do not need to make any excuses about leaving TX in summer, I have been doing it for years, I love Texas but dislike our summers.

I am headed to the same area of your Ride Report at the end of this month. I always stop by the Ranch de Taos church and thank the riding God' s for another great and safe ride. Has worked for many years. Plus the place is beyond beautiful. A classic.

I have been a Getty contributor for over 25 years and share your passion for travel and making images. Has worked quite well for me and taken me to incredible places across this planet. We are blessed who make a nice living doing what we love. Keep up the good work....

I am rummaging around Texas and Austin related ride reports and posting random comments like this:

I just did a ride from Houston to Austin and back last weekend. Hot? oh yeah and I have been commuting on my bike for 2 months now and no doubt the constant heat and constant washing of clothes is getting old!

That all said, a good camel back, sunscreen and contant motion its not that bad. Its when you stop that its a pain.

Finally! I am at least on my way out of Texas heat.

Here's a few things I've seen since leaving home. ( Just trailering so far) Interstate ten doesn't appeal to me on a 400 cc.
Also I am flying solo this go round.

Here's me making my second Karma deposit since leaving home. I ran into two people who had run out of gas:



And Then I saw the motorbike uh thing that is the polar opposite of a dual sport....it's really almost a car:

we did I-10 from Seily to 610 on 250cc scooters in 100degree weather.
If I was a young pup I could pontificate at how awesome I am for doing so but the reality its not fun and the whole point is to have fun. We were just tired from our Austin trip and we all wanted to just take the quickest way home, only crazy people 'like' to drive next to 18 wheelers.

Added: I do have my own personal rules on motorcycling and life that is deep seated in a philosophy/worldview of which I will not go into detail and one which I reserve the right to violate at will. Those rules are 1. if I have 3 wheels I might as well have a car. 2. If I cant get there with my 2 wheels from my front door I will go somewhere else.

I know people who go against my personal rules and they are fine and fun people which leads me to I guess the most important rule in this 'season' of my life which is to not judge others unless I really have to :)

Around Alto New Mexico

Where my dad lives, the forest fires have changed things quite a bit:


Luckily, the flames spared his house(pictured above) by just a few yards. These orange trees are BURNT. I guess these turkeys were spared too:
