LOLOLO.....   I would probably blast the whole thing no problem, but I'm riding with others.....   LOL   Hey bother, come on over and go ride with us....

So tempting. Just spent 60 days in that region. Woulda been so easy to rendezvous!

But leave home this soon after getting back? Before getting everyone repaired from Harvey? Even I ain't that reckless. The kids would send a posse.

Well, they made a quick pitstop here in ABQ to taste some green Chile, and do some quick wrenching. ::003::
I thought this was supposed to be a vacation?  looks like work to me! :D
Anyways, they are back on the road this morning, and my Tenere is sitting there with it's Clutch missing  :'(
I hope the pictures come out, and youse guys have a great ride!!

Hello,

 We have been riding the BDR.  It's been an "adventure" for sure.  I'm writing from Tombstone, AZ.  Tons of pictures and a few good stories to write when we get back. We are safe and starting to head back later today.  More to come !!

Hey guys,

  Made it back and had a blast !   Knocked out 2500 in a week of fun in the sun..  And some days it was very literal.   We basically took 40 over to flag staff. Then turned north and headed up to Grand  Canyon.  We then doubled back and started ridding the BDR from N-S.  I found almost on the first day that my camera on my phone started having the shakes and there were a ton of pictures that are all blurry. Very disappointing for sure.  But most people would probably like to see some pictures and not sit and read every detail in a long drawn out recollection of our trip, LOL....



****I want to add comments between pictures to explain what was going on.....  Not just a long wrap sheet of pictures....   How do I do that ?     Many years ago I down loaded pictures to another site, and then hit the button that looks like mona lisa, then it would let me stack up the pictures and write between the pictures.    How do I do that again  ?     I tried to post pictures on the road, each time I did, it just erased what I did (did not post) and took me back to the home screen.....   super excited about that !

Thanks

Were you able to make it to the North rim of the canyon, or just the South?

You would have to get a free smugmug account, and upload your pictures to there.
THEN, you can click on the mona lisa, and paste the link to your picture in between the img brackets like this:     
looking forward to seeing, and hearing about your adventures!

Clarified the instructions on how to post photos.

After you post a photo, you can hit the RETURN key a couple of times, add your text, hit a couple more RETURNs, then post the next photo. If you have LOTS of photos, it's easier on you and the reader to break your trip into multiple posts.


Looking forward to seeing some.

South side....


Yeah, the road from Jacobs Lake to the North Rim is beautiful, but the North Rim isn't on the way to anywhere.  We did both rims in one day, but it took ALL day.  We were surprised to find out that the entrance fee covers BOTH rims for the same day.

This is harder than the ride........ LOL

  By fallowing these directions,  I understand how to post pictures this way.... (like the old days)

My problem is the icon "picture frame" under the bold 'B' does not work. When I have my curser up on the screen and I click on the picture frame the curser goes away and I have nothing........   Most of the 'controls' up in this tool bar have not worked for me in the last several years....  no font size, no yellow faces, etc...........

  Does anyone have any clue,  I DONT.....  lol     Shoot, I can go on a great off road adventure across the country, but cant post pictures....   LOL

These controls are broken (for me)
