    Old Gal....New Bike LOL

    Hi all......Newbe here from southern Vt. .... I've had BMW's (and Hondas) for years ....and have been reading ON for all of those years.....I just bought a 700 GS and decided to join.....I am a great grandmother and a MSF instructor ...... For a living, I build guitar pickups....(For you guitarists....I work with Kent Armstrong....who is a life member).....I ride mostly pavement.....but also a lot of gravel roads....because that's what we have here......I'm not a woods rider, I think I would break....joy

    Joy -

    A couple of things. You might want to look at this thread:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...post-a-picture

    It's a long one, but pretty quickly in that thread is info on how up upload a picture.

    Basically, when you reply to a thread, you'll see a screen which looks like the picture below. Notice the red arrow...that points to the part that lets you upload a picture from your computer or provide a link to a picture that is already somewhere on the web. Hopefully that helps a little bit. You might want to go to the very last post in the thread that I listed above...you can practice uploading pictures there. Once you get that down, then go to the F-Twins forum and try your hand there! Good luck!

    Voni, she said she is a "Great Grandmother" not just your plain average Grandmother. Wow my hat is off to both of you! At my age I am not even a Grandpa yet. Darn! I think they should make special gray tires for those of us over a certain age. Been riding sixty one years, still going but not so strong and not too fast.

    Welcome aboard Not So Plain Jane!
