First the good news.  There are several features within the forum that use messages sent via e-mail.

One is the ability to send out an announcement to all of the members of one or more groups that a post has been created or updated.  This may be limited to administrators I need to verify this.  However, this feature is very useful for letting the VTR members know that an important topic has been updated with new or corrected information.  If desired, the forum users can disable the reception of these announcements by changing a setting within their profile.

Another is the feature for watching for new posts that each user can set within each forum.  This feature is very handy when a new post is created, the user gets an e-mail message.  This way, the user does not need to log into the forum each day to see if something has been added.  When something does get added, the user will get an e-mail to let him know.

Another feature that works the same way as the "watch for new posts" feature above is the "Notify me of replies" option when you submit a post.

And now the bad news.  There are, however, some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) that do not cooperate with these features.  One in particular is Comcast.  If you are using an e-mail address like "begone@comcast.net" then you will not receive any of these messages, regardless of how you have your profile set up.

No problem... I'm glad you like it! 

I have more that I'm trying to edit... I'll post them when I'm done.  Kind of difficult doing this at work!  Shocked

Hi All,

I had a really good time riding with the club on Saturday.  Wish I could've stayed thru Sunday tho.  I have some good helmet cam video of Andres and Mark London that are fairly interesting.  I have one video posted so far... more to come. Kudos to Mark for riding 100 miles before 3pm... wow, you are the man!!!  Also, thanks to whomever found my friends kick starter.  He's very happy.

See y'all at the next ride.

here's Mark London > http://files.filefront.com/Elkins+Flat+2wmv/;10204261;/fileinfo.html

If you wish to upload your own avatar, which you do within your Profile settings, you will need to have the image created first.  Edit your selected image in a graphics editing program that will allow you to resize the image down to a maximum pixel count of 65 by 65.  You can make it smaller, and it doesn't need to be square it just can't exceed 65 pixels in each direction.  Photoshop is an example of a program that will allow you to reduce the pixel count of your image.  Note that, because the avatar is going to be very small, you may want to do some cropping to the image before you reduce it's size.  Save the image as a .GIF, .PNG or a .JPG file.

Once your file is set up, you can enter the forum, edit your profile and upload your avatar...

k.. so, since nobody has ever posted to the classifieds forum yet i thought i'd give it a shot  Grin

i have a used WP shock spring in good shape.  It was given to me by the previous owner of my bike but was not installed as he had installed a Langston Progressive spring instead.  It's a straight rate spring and is stamped 8.6 on the bottom and came off an '01 400sx.  Actually, I'm not even sure if it's the stock spring... my repair manual says the stocker should be a PDS6-250... no other info is printed on the spring.

i also have the stock KTM flywheel in very good condition... was replaced with a heavier Steahly flywheel before I bought the bike.  Not sure how much use it's had but it looks brand new.

I also have an MXC (13L) tank with a Guts Racing soft seat to match.  I used this for about a year, it's in great shape and doesn't leak, no tears in the seat either.  The tank does not include petcock.  I don't use these items anymore because I've upgraded to a Clarke tank which uses a different seat.

And finally.... I have a stock SX tank (black) I think it's a 7 liter tank (it got me 53 miles before I ran out of gas at Stonyford last year)  Shocked.  It includes the petcock but does not have reserve.  The tank is in good, but obviously used condition with no leaks... just a little dusty since I've not cleaned it since I removed it.

All reasonable offers will be accepted... I need to get these things out of my garage and wanted to offer them to club members first.  if they don't sell here I'll post to KTMtalk, craiglist or eBay.

I can send/post pics if needed, or I can bring them to one of our next rides or meetings for you to look at.

Another way to display pictures is to add a link to an image that exists on a web site.  The link is the path to the image, so the image is not stored locally, as it is in the example above.  In this case, a Guest can see the image without logging in, as the image is not an attachment.

The photo below is stored in the VTR Photos area of the VTR Website.

I believe so.  As a test, I attached the picture below.  There is a maximum file size for attachments that is currently set to 400KB.

When one views this post without logging in (Guest Mode), the attached image does not display.  When you are logged in, the image displays inline.  This is because the 'display attachments' setting for Guests is currently set 'off'.
