Default The Redfishes ride to California

Pop and I recently took a little ride. We rode our FJRs from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Sacramento, California. We covered 5800 miles in a little over two weeks. Our longest day was 582.5 miles. Our shortest days the bikes stayed parked while we rode in a vehicle touring Lake Tahoe. We saw a low temp of about 48F and a high temp of 107F. We had one flat tire and zero bike problems.

We met a group of over 70 other FJRs in Mariposa, California for a YFO (Yosemite FJR Owners) gathering. We toured Yosemite, we saw some beautiful places going and coming.

I will not do the editorial I usually do but here are a few pics.

1. '15 FJR ES Loaded and Ready
2. & 3. A lava field just West of Carrizozo NM

Did you do your normal write-up over on the FJR forum?

If so, post a link I can follow.

I did do a very good one on the FJRforum.

I have the worst time posting pics here. I finally gave up on this one. Some of them gave me errors that I did not understand.

Perhaps you could help me with the picture thing and if so I will do a better job here.

Hopefully I can get back to this one. This forum would not allow some of my pics to load and I have no idea why. I got frustrated.

It's OK. I'm working on a couple things. Have to get with Joe, and ask him to upload an export of the database to my servers.

In the meantime, yes, uploading multiple pictures can be frustrating. The only real way to do it with vBulletin is to upload them to your profile, or create an album and put them there. After that, you link them to your post.

It's a PITA, but it works.

Or put them on a sharing site.

...But...I still don't see any link.

I have them on a sharing site, Photobucket. But I have no idea how to link them to this forum. I have to use Photobucket or some sharing site to post them on any of the FJRforums.

I am not sure if I even know how to post a damned link to my RR.

If I could get these pictures to work on THIS Forum I would make the effort to get the RR here and then we would not need a link.

My first forum loyalty is to THIS forum. I would love to do a proper RR here. But we are talking maybe 400 pictures...
