Try copying the image location when you have the pic opened in a larger size at it's hosting site.

If you uploaded them big then you should have a pull down menu under "Tags" . Below "Link" and "Embed" there is "Select Size" and a pull down tab. It defaults at 144px which is the small thumbnail. You want 800px.

Here is Doug finishing up in the parking lot at the Holiday Inn under the only light in the parking lot that kept flickering on and off.



At about 10PM Doug was motoring around the parking lot with a big smile on his face!

When we left he was looking forward to a good nights sleep and the ride on Sunday once he got hauled to the top of the Big Horn Mountains.

Great meeting you, Doug, and have a safe, exciting ride to San Fran!

Good pictures, but shoot...I'd love to have a closer look at the valve side where the problem was....
I'd have a look at those scruffy hi tension leads... no wonder water gets in that...
and flush the carb... jumping around upside down could stir some old gunk loose....

Looking for schedule info, as in, what time(s) do folks arrive at the stops and leave in the morning? Didn't find it on the CB website.

I'd like to meet up with Cannonball in Fortuna for one or the other.

I didn't look for temperatures, but this time of year precipitation could turn to snow and ice in a heartbeat. I recall a day in the eighties and waking up the nest morning in West Yellowstone to 22 degrees.

Yep...not too cold at the moment but it could be icy in the morning according to this.




I don't know what's up with his spot...it hasn't updated in more than an hour and a half.....

Just updated...still at the lake but only about 12 miles down the road and at the lodge.






It also looks like he pushed the OK button...vs. it just being another TRACK position.

You may be right...I was thinking the town of West Yellowstone but checking the website it simply says Yellowstone, WY

edit: and that makes sense with the short stage to Jackson Hole tomorrow.

Waiting to hear from the man how it went today!
