    Don't look back
    A new day is breakin'
    It's been too long since I felt this way
    (well, almost 2 weeks)
    I don't mind where I get taken
    The road is callin'
    Today is the day

    I'm heading on out today on a spur-of-the-moment run. Going to wander out east through NV and Utah to Colorado. Meeting my niece in CO on Thursday to escort her ride back from her summer job in Golden. She's riding the Sportster 1200 Custom that I inherited from my Dad and then gave to her, after my son decided it was too small for him (he is much bigger than I am). Her longest day ride has been just under 400 miles, and that was a round trip. This will be her first multi-day trip, no reservation ride, unless she decides make it an Iron Butt run - which I hope she doesn't want!
    I was going to just blast out Wednesday and do about 800 miles all at once, but have decided to play tourist a bit and be more free with my route. So my itinerary is now "go ride and come back Friday or Saturday" - not really a strict one, for sure.

    Later..........

    My niece, blasting alongside. One of my very few rides when I'm not alone on a cross-states run. Finishing up a 500 mile day!

    OK, then why are they still showing up on my screen? Seems like a system issue. I don't know how to post things to have them only show up on my screen. Something is really weird here. I uploaded the pics, got no size errors or other ones, and can view the posts with all the pics - but you're telling me they aren't there? Beyond my control. Do they need moderator approval, like the Gallery said it did? When you find out, let me know. I'll totally reboot and see if they still show up.

    Not sure, do you have them hosted on the net. When I look at the post I don’t see the url for the images

    This is what I see in mod edit mode, there isn't a reference to the image
    even though I see the in your post however no reference to the image
    itself, just the code [img]

    So you can see what I see, but only in mod edit mode? Can you move the pics to my original posts, as moderator? Or at least tell me what I might do to get these pics there? It isn't like I never posted pics, I used the same method as before, and those (the Lost Coast) apparently made it.
    Now another reason not to bother taking pictures:rage:!!!!

    P.S. - Not Cloud hosted, did standard "browse - select" from PC. And you can see 'em in edit mode? :banghead:

    All right, now, I gave up and tried a completely NEW way of posting pics. Did it work worth a damn?

    No I don't see them, when I do an edit, no reference to the image,

    Try this, from your PC/Phone, click the upload file button, then select the
    image file from your computer, then once its uploaded click thumbnail or full size.

    This is full size, cause I know you don't want to squint at a thumbnail of it.

    I see them on my laptop now, where I didn't right before trying the last effort. FYI, the procedure you suggested is exactly what I did before, to no avail.
    Nice FatBoy FLSTF....amongst other things, that is......
