    The HB Adventure Thread is for everything pertaining to adventure riding in the Bay. That means adventure ride notices, ride reports and general banter. On here you are free to post proper sized pictures of your bikes and adventures.

    If anyone has any problems with posting pics or video's, help is just a "how do I post pics and video's on this site" question away.

    So I hope you all give it a go :clap

    I don't think new users have any restrictions on ADVRider but attachments are not allowed on this site so that's probably your problem.

    To post pictures here you need to upload them to a photo hosting site first. (Photobucket or smugbug - there is a fee for smugbug but its owned by the guy who runs this site so the fee helps support ADVRider, but Photobucket is free and pretty easy to navigate)

    Once you have this set up all you need to do is copy the URL from your uploaded photo, click on the "Insert Image" tag paste it in the box and bobs your uncle bob's cousins brother in laws neighbour :pynd

    Hey Marty

    Idea for the next trials experience...

    There is a rock quarry on the back of the farm that could be interesting:evil

    [​IMG]Went for a mosy down to the river on Wednesday thought it may have dropped a bit, flowing fast & dirty so not much fishing. Nice ride along the bank & through some deepish run off channels.
