    Sorry folks but I tried a photo and none of the instructions make any sense to me. Transferring URLs if you can find them seems a strange system and in the preview section it seems not possible to see whether you've done anything right or not. My report card is fail. I've ferreted out several URLs for the photos concerned but they rate a big question mark when previewed. My Mac doesn't seem to like URLs and Google+ just laughs at me along with Picasa by finding nice long URLs that don't do any good. I've tried the other help sections on the forum but am deadended. Any easy clues around?

    Katikati - home of Red Triangle Enterprises. Heard on the grapevine that Kurt was shutting up shop. Know anything about it. He's quite well regarded by Cossack owners on this side of the ditch.

    Must ring Kurt soon. I have heard the same thing. He hung the chair on my GS a few years ago and it's time I went to have a coffeee with him. His old engineering shop is just down the road from me. He sold the business years ago, but he still owns the building and does some work there.:clap

    This is a backwards method but I'm still working on the photo upload chore-where oh where is there a teenager when I need one? On Friday I picked up one of the grandboys in Omokoroa and took him for a ride.[​IMG]

    First day we went to Thames and stayed in the Junction Hotel-old fashioned Kiwi pub.[​IMG]

    Next day we took the scenic roundabout route to Coromandel Town with a night in another old style pub.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The steak dinner was too much for Jayden which was a huge surprise after having watched[​IMG] him polish off vast amounts of tucker. Sunday we took time for a morning fishing trip and became good conservationists by neglecting to catch anything.[​IMG]

    Afternoon ride to his place and a stop to photograph some familiar initials on the way home.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG]Still trying to get photos to jump onto the screen.:huh
    I've tried Photobucket, Google+ and iPhoto but can't get photos from here to there or out of this computer into anyone else's machine.
    I still can't see any photos except the ones shown by FR700-I've tried posting 8 of them???

    The chair is a CJ and nothing has been done except sheer neglect and riding in the rain to rinse it off. Carries my wife(she still wants to ride on the pillon seat and doesn't like the chair), Stepson, Grandson plus neighbours and friends who want a toot around the peninsula. Hauled a couple of loads of bricks from back in a Kiwifruit orchard to home-about a kilometre but not much road. Bike is a 1990 R80 GS with heaps of k's and internal maintenance but not much on cosmetics.:clap
