Did you move them in photo bucket? That will do it, once you have posted photo's you can't move or delete your photo's in photo bucket.

Did a trip round southern NH yesterday - beautiful bright sunshine but bloody freezing.

Before the storm:



The storm



She's a big old girl to pick up but we eventually got her up and going:



Fantastic day

It was actually not too bad - this was really the only really deep mud hole that we found. It made up for it though - it was pretty damn deep

I did a fly and ride from Florida to South Dakota last week on an '11 XC, purchased for my wife. I took the long way, 13 states, about 20 state line crossings, and nearly 2700 miles in 7 days.

I gotta say, after 30 years of bikes, and probably over 50 bikes, this is one of my favorites, or even my favorite. That much seat time in a week, you really get to know a machine, and the 800XC is one of the most well rounded, competent bikes I've ever ridden. All my other bikes are gonna get real lonely if I get one for myself!

Still debating between it and a 1200XC.... one or the other will happen for sure.

That's just sad, a Tiger in the dirt and a V-Strom upright.

The thought of Binning my previous bikes has always scared the christ out of me. Being new to offroad, at times I am quite nervous. But the fear of binning the bike is no longer there with the XC. I know it is going to happen eventually.

I see these photos and all the reactions/sympathy/laughs that we get. The money cost is there of course, but the reaction of the XC riders is almost like a badge of honour. (ALTHOUGH I HAVE NOTICED A TREND OF IT BEING THE RED TIGERS ON THIER SIDES...)

Any accident that you walk away from is a good accident. It puts me in mind of 1 line that McGregor says in Long Way Round "Its my bike, every scratch and dent is a story" This is the line that runs through my head, and lets me know that when I go down, I better go down in style!

Keep the photos coming guys. You wince at the sight of it on its side (It just doesn't LOOK RIGHT!!) but each pic is a story.

p.s Red05 - Sorry mate, I really wanted to post your pics in this, but could not access them at work...

CHAOS OUT!

Between this thread and the 800 farkle thread, I am dying! I have a green '13 waiting to be picked up. It will be another couple of weeks till it is ready... I have gone nearly blind looking at farkles and check out this thread just to keep my hopes up....

I can' t wait!

I am ready to ride, just waiting for the weather and the dealer to cooperate


Keep the pics coming!

Amazing huh? I did a 12 hour day and didn't even realize it. The XC has something special built in.... my favorite bike of all time.

Holy crap!

Red where is that? I am in Alberta and I wouldn't mind riding that, minus trying to climb the mountain with it!
