A Noob's first ride

Post by flatnpa » Sat Jan 30, 2016 10:01 am

Well this morning in 48 degree weather I went for my first real ride. She has personality that's best way to describe it as you know when you accelerate she aims for the ditch and when you break she wants to cross the median knowing it and expecting it still got my full attention it's not a lazy man's motorcycle you definitely have to pay attention to what you're doing just going down the road. After about 20 minutes they got a lot easier to handle as it

The best way is if you have a photo sharing account somewhere (photobucket, smugmug, snapfish and the like) (most are free until you save too many photos), then you just copy and paste the link to the photo into you post. This save you from resizing the photo to fit this site and also saves the amount of server space that we keep running out of.
We may not have it all together,
But, together we have it all.

A quick way to resize photos is to email them to yourself, the email program will ask you what size you want to send them as.

I just pull the photos onto my desktop and use the "tools" option to resize them to what seems to work best on SS. iPhoto with a Macbook.
Then the image software on Soviet Steeds just uploads them to the site for me. No other outside thing-of-a-ma-jigs needed.

Rig looks nice. I see you have your location in your signature line. Put your year and model into your profile as well.

Current Herd all running amok:
2019 Honda CRF450L (Elec Start)
2008 Vespa 150S (Elec & Kick Start)
2007 Ural Patrol (2WD, Elec & Kick Start)
2006 Honda "Big Ruckus" PS250 (Elec Start)
1991 Honda XR250L (Kick Start Only) *NOT running amok, out for Bottom & Top-End Rebuild.
1986 Yamaha BW200ES (Elec & Kick Start)

List what you "have", keep the others in your precious memory bank.
