    if your a smug mugger
    then go to the picture you want to show
    under the pic, click on share with a friend
    this opens a new window
    scroll down to small (perfect for forum post)
    click it
    when the pic comes up, right click on the adress bar, click copy
    then go back to your adv post
    click the yellow button that looks like a mountain with a square sun
    right click the adress bar
    then click paste
    then ok

    this will complete the link



    there is probably a more efficient way, but this works for me

    ya I know that things only got about 2.5k on it and its the hardened version from sprocket specialties. I keep my chain fairly loose, but chain and sprocket wear are high? :ear

    Thanks, Oh she came along. :nod
    Buzzezgirl is a little camera shy. This is the best I can do.
    I plan on heading down to Arkansas 2nd weekend next month. Not sure how many are coming along yet but the more the better.

    We are in OKCity and would love to go to ARK with you. Please private email me so we can get together - I have a 04 KTM 950 and my wife will want to go also (especially if we get a new seat before then :-)

    Buzzezgirl won't be riding much the rest of the year. It's not likely she'll be able to go with me.

    It would be great to meet up with you and your wife. I am going somewhere on the second weekend of Nov. It will be either Arkansas or The Cajun Guzzie Rally down in LA. I'm leaning more towards going down to the Cajun Rally. I'll Know more after next Tuesday.

    I haven't been to the CGR yet but my buddies have and they keep telling me how much fun it is. So I figure I should head on down.

    Arkansas is always fun too though... Tough call.
