Smile SuperGlide

Here is my ride, a 2007 Harley SuperGlide with 70,000+ miles. Love the year 'round riding (and flying) weather in Arizona. My wife nicknamed her "Harley the Harlot", for obvious reasons.

We've been all around the country, PCH from San Diego to Seattle, Blue Ridge Parkway, New England were the grandkids are, innumerable 2-5 day jaunts in and around the west and southwest (photo taken in the mountains above Ruidoso, NM). Even got to help out Santa this past Christmas.

Plan for this year is to ride to the Pacific NW for the wife's family reunion then east to New England and the D.C. areas for the grandkids, then home via Colorado and friends in the Denver area. Like to find new and interesting routes each trip. Just need to find a practical way to carry an R/C plane and gear on her.

Default My Tiger

2006 Triumph Tiger, 18,000 miles, full factory hard luggage. She's a torquey 955cc triple, a joy in a straight line and gives the sport bikes a run for their money in the twisty bits.

Yeah
I always reduce the file size of my JPG images uploaded to wattflyer. One very good program to use for this purpose is faststone. This is freeware, and just download their Faststone image viewer 5.1. Install Faststone, go to file, load up your image, and move the mouse cursor to the far left of the screen. Look for "resize/resample", change Width to 1600 and it will automatically fill in height resolution. FYI, move the mouse cursor to the far left, far right, top and bottom to light up the different commands available for this program.

My primary camera has 12 megapixels, with around 4000 pixels on horizontal.

Save it as a new file, and upload it to wattflyer. For me, it works every time.

This program has a lot of other very useful functions, like drawing on your photo, correcting color balance, cropping, image rotation, and a whole lot more.
