First, I go to the faulty post and click on the "Quote" button. Then I click on the "Switch Editor Mode" button which is in the top right corner of the "Reply to Thread" window. This reveals the hidden html codes in the post that I'm quoting. That's when I find the bad picture code and discover that it's from Photobucket. Then I take a guess that Johnny's Photobucket account name is the same as his ADV name so I use Google to search for Johnny Wolvo Photobucket. And I find it. Then, I am happy to discover that you have your Photobucket account set to "Public" not "Private" so that means I can poke around and look at your pics. Luckily, it was pretty easy to find the Watsonian pic. Then I copy the "direct link" code on the right side of the Photobucket page. Finally, I go back to the "Reply to Thread" window and delete everything, write my message, and paste the direct link I copied into the window that pops up when you click on the "Insert Image" button.

It sounds complicated, but basically it's pretty sequential. Step 1 is to find the URL of the pic you're after. Step 2 is to use the "Insert Image" button to post it.

For simple posting of images from your own PB account, just open up the pic, copy the info in the "Direct Link" box next to the pic, then go to the post you're composing and paste the link into the "Insert Image" box. Note: if no "Direct Link" box appears on your picture page then you need to go into your PB User Settings for "Albums" and fix it.
Hiya Drone, That sound so very complicated for a 77 year old, but i am going to give it a try tonight. Thank you so much for your help, just wish computers were Norton Commando engines, now they are simple!!! Where did you learn all this computer stuff from? You are my friend for life....John W,

I'll toss my sidecars into the ring.

I'm a newb and first time poster here in ADVrider...Just picked up an '89 Honda Transalp and am looking forward to digging into the forum...Been a motorcycle guy for many years....but scooters have stayed with me all along. Here are a few of the silly hacks I've put together...the weirder the better.
Took an old '87 Honda Elite scooter and turned it into the "Herkimer Combat Scooter" back in 2000. A few years ago I got the terrible idea to fab up a sidecar for it...and of course put a couch on it....El Coucho was then born. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffiB_uoVx1E





And another scooter hack of mine:

I went to your photobucket site, displayed your photo, saved it my ChromeBook( Google OS), uploaded it to my Picasa, linked to the photo,etc. Probably a better way.
I haven't used photobucket for years so don't remember how to display photos with it.

Posting pics is easy. Right click, select properties, copy the address , then paste it after pressing the inset images icon.


Whats the center bike? Suzuki GT-750?

I had three rigs for a couple of years, but never four. Nice stable.

I should have said " Posting pics is nearly impossible. It should only be attempted by people withan IQ of over 150".

Can you see it now?
