Okay, I'm going to try to add a picture to this message as you advised. Oops! First picture is too big. It was of a series of switchbacks in the Alps with a rider and passenger in the foreground traversing the closest switchback. Too bad you can't see it. I'll try another. Geez! This picture was a lot smaller but still too big. It was of me next to my R1200GS on the way to the Redmond Rally a couple of years ago. I'll try another. Voila! Maybe this one got uploaded. I don't see it. It's of me sitting in front of my old 1983 R80ST on a UK tour to the Isle of Man. I'm previewing and I still don't see my picture. :? Oh! Well, I guess I'll submit the message and see if the picture shows up there. Thanks... I think. Maybe another try with edit post. Hmm. Here goes...

Jim,
What you uploaded are pdf files - Adobe's Portable Document Format.
If you want to upload pictures that are viewable in the post, they must be in a graphics file format. Jpg files work best.
