Rotate cogConcours Owners Group - NW





Now... Why did that happen Colin? I went to the section with the pic and statement about the Or. trip. Then, I figured out how to get a pic put in to your article. I put them right in the text box, under your last sentance... one under another, until I'd uploaded 5 or 6.

Then, when I was done, I went to the main page expecting to see my pic uploads in the right section. But instead, they're stacked right down the left column... right with all the following topics.

This is my story... and I'm curious about it  :) Greg

CP: I know whats going on with this, and will see if I can figure out how to fix it. It's possible this is not the best forum to post a whole bunch of photos. So it may work best to provide just one and use that as the link to the rest. Leme play with it.

BTW - In your webshots... you do know that most your captions say "GOC Ride", right? hehehehehehehe LOL :) CP: - Thanks I'll fix then delete this comment and yours when done

BTW, BTW, BTW - I'm sure you tech experts already know this... But if you click on one of those pics, you get a page that has a link (center/up) that says "higher resolution". It makes the pic full size (so you can see Jim's smilin' face and Colin's eyes through his helmet).
