First day as a GT
« on: June 14, 2015, 11:14:50 AM »
Last week I dropped off my V2 & yesterday, (at last), picked it up as a GT. To save a double trip to the dealer which is not far, but just a b***s ache, I had the first 600 mile service done & now I'm ready for the 'Farmyard' at Helmsley next week.............. anyone else going ?
Will get some photies to show him parked up for two days while we drink, look at bikes & listen to 'mainly awful' rock music. :031: 
Bit of  fart when it comes to computers & struggling to upload photo's.
My photos are JPEG Images & approx 6MB in size - anyone who can educate me ?

Welcome to the forum fella, your files are way to big for picking up as attachments you need to resize the image via a photoeditor (reduce by 60% at least using resize picture) then save as (Jpg file again but different name to retain original file for print etc.) or use an external storage service and then put the link on your post for people to access. I find images of about 640 x480 in resolution are best for forum use  :028:

I think Tyke did something on photobucket and using links so use the search option and something should come up if you use key word photobucket.

If you're Durham way we might see you out and about if you get North out of the moors  :031:

Welcome baileyb, and the picture upload is just fine...enjoy your new bike and remember every hour spent polishing is an hour less riding  :008: :028:
