Title: Intro & info
Post by: BlouVark on May 05, 2006, 12:58:59 pm
Hi all, my first post & would like to introduce myself as I've been lurking for awhile.
I switched from a Fireblade to a 1150GS in December & already clocked 13k km with it. Still a newb on the dirt but getting there & loving it. Spent the weekend doing the dirt roads between Thabazimbi & Nylstroom, nice hard fast roads (that's 80 for me) with some butt clenthing soft sand sections. No fall though(yet)
Mostly ride alone as my friends don't want to take their bikes on the dirt (sies!)

Hier herhaal vir jou gemak. Geen veskonings meer nie.

Quote from: "someone"
its complex if you dont know how, so i'll give it to you step by step:

1.go to http://www.imageshack.us/ (no registration required)

2.click on the "browse" button on the right. find the file you want from your pc, and click "open"

3. now click on the "host it!" button below.

4. now wait while it uploads your image. it takes a while (the bigger the file, the longer)

5. a new screen comes up.

6. on the bottom half of the screen 5 boxes with text come up. to the right of the top one it says "hotlink to forums (1)". this is the one you want.

7. all you do is select & copy whatever it says in the text box. dont change or edit it.

8. after selecting the above, go to the forum text editor (the one where you are busy typing your story), and paste the selected junk from the imageshack page.

voila! when you submit your story, it will automatically display an image in the spot where the "gobble-dee-gook" text was placed

Ya welcome, the Blouuvark will not feel lonely on this forum, I agree there are some great roads up North, we should plan a run up there, particularly now winter is coming.

that bike looks so sweet that there is really no reason to sell it! The next guy will probably just mess it up :(

perhaps you should wait for the 1250GS due in about 6 years from now :wink:

No. BM is going back to the reliable R80 motor in order to keep up with the KLRs :lol:

Must admit, that new 800 Twin motor looked like it would fit straight into a Dakar.

Could be fun.
