I took several pics, but this is the only one I was able to load. I think the files for the rest of the pics were too many MBs. I'll have to mess with the camera and see if I can adjust the resolution so I can post more pics.

just go to view on your computer and click view, resize/resample, 800/600 save pic and post!!!!!
I don't think it's the 800/600 I'm having a problem with, I think it's the size of the file. In "Manage Attachments" is says max file size for jpg's is 97 KB. These pics are 2 MBs. I think I'm gonna have to take new pics at a lower resolution.

Or you could download a prog that reduces the sizes if you dont already have it on your computer. I have one called "batch image resizer" and its a cinch. Google it and you'll find the free download.

I use my work computer during the week and we're not allowed to download anything, unfortunately.

It does have "Paint." How do I use it? Thanks.
After you start the program and open your picture file, click the "Image" tab, then "Stretch/Skew". You can enter the percentage you want to shrink your file both vertically and horizontally. I usually use 25 or 30 percent.

Your bike looks good. Have you made a run with the bike on your trailer and how hard was it to load on the trailer?

Thanks. I've hauled it twice on the trailer so far. I was worried about how much the little Corolla would struggle towing 1000 lbs worth of bike and trailer, but it does just fine. In fact, it'll run along at 75 MPH with the cruise set, no problem. I checked my mileage the first time I hauled it and got 34 MPG! Not bad at all.

Loading and unloading is a breeze. I walk along side the bike while driving it onto the trailer for loading. The locking wheel chock holds the bike in the vertical position while I strap it down, making one person loading/unloading an easy task.
