690 Enduro Banner Pic Submission!
« on: January 21, 2014, 04:47:54 pm »
Have an especially heroic pic of your 690 Enduro?  Submit it for consideration to become our next Banner Pic!

Just to be clear, if you've taken a shot of your bike in the garage, that's awesome we wanna see!  But not here.

If you managed to snap a high-res shot while jumping over a gorge to escape a pack of snarling llamas during on your RTW trip through the Andes?  Yeah, this is where that pic goes.

Hey Rusty what exactly are you looking for? An action photo? Something artistic? and is the banner for the website or are actual banners being proposed? I have done some cool things (or so I think :D) via my I-phone and some photo apps. Did you want peeps to postem here?

Hey Endo,

What I'm looking for is any photo you are particularly proud of your Enduro 690.  It doesn't need to be an action shot, I just wanted to be clear that this is not a place for garage shots.

As for llamas, who doesn't like llamas?

So I went out and tried to take some pics.  Here's what I found out.  I can wheelie or jump the bike or I can take pictures.  I can't seem to do both of these together, even with another person :P!

This is harder than I thought... :-\  I'll keep trying.

My dirty girl Katy in Northern Wisconsin this summer. I went solo & rode from NE South Dakota. Over 4 days I did several hundred miles of trails & fire roads in & around the Chequamegon National Forrest. Its beautiful country & was one of the best rides of my life. The area had a good soaking just before I got there.. Thats red clay & sand all over my girl. Sticky stuff. Now Katy gets a bath regularly but I'm pretty sure she still has some of that clay in places the sun doesn't shine!
Nut up or shut up!

 I can’t figure out why I can’t get pics to post up. I even started a public Flickr page just to be able to post pics here.

Edit:  Ok I got it to work.  Here's what you need to do.  Right click on the picture you want and then click 'copy image url'.  Now come back to the site here and in your post you will type {img} (replace the {} for []) then you will paste the url you just copied.  now directly after that you will type {/img} (again replace the {} with [] (same key))

I did exactly what you said word for word and I just got a blue box with a ? in it. It wouldn’t even show text. when I left the / out of the second [img] it does this. hmmm this really bugs me.

I've tried everything I know.  I even resorted to google.  Flickr officially BLOWS!  Nobody should use Flickr.  They are trying to control where photos are posted by denying access to photo URL's.

Don't use Flickr.

When I copied your image url I got the above address.  It looks quite different that the address you provided. www.flickr.com/photos/128637489@N04/16162885428/in/photostream

So something isn't working with the copy part.  Ok I figured it out.

I don't know how I got it to work the other day but now when you right click on the picture and copy the url it is copying the photostream url which will not work.  What you need to do is click on the curvy arrow that points to the right on the bottom right of the screen.  This is the share button.  Select the size image you want and select the HTML radio button.  Now when I did that I looked above the size selection area and I saw BBCode.  I clicked that.  Copied and pasted the text and this is what I got.

A whole lotta crap to go through just to share a picture.  But on the plus side it seems to remember that you want BBCode so you'll only have to do that once.

Awesome!  What a convoluted method!  At least it worked.  Thanks Reaps!
