Rob, you've always done a great job with the drag race! Thanks for bringing all the equipment, the timing lights, your enthusiam etc!
If all goes well, I'll be there in Battle Mountain, possibly with my carbon lowracer handbuilt here in the good 'old USA. I don't know if I'll be faster than I was two years ago with my Challenge, but I'll try! Getting up to 36 mph in 1/8 Mile (200 meters) was as fast as I've ever accelerated. I remember crossing the line in 17 seconds and thinking wow I'm not going to be able to brake before the end of the street!

You have to have at least ten postings first, and then you can only put a hyperlink to the photo that is actually hosted somewhere else, like on photobucket

There is no 10 posting penalty box on this forum, but otherwise Mike is correct.

Below is the best I can do as of now. The link should take you to Roberts Pics. This way of posting pics is new to me so I hope it works.

Opps I didn't realize there wasn't a 10-posting limit.

CrticialMass - here's another hint: on Photobucket if you hover over each photo that you've uploaded, there will appear four rows of things or html codes underneath it. The bottom one says IMG code. If you click on the white box containing the html code, the white box will say Copied in it. Then if you go back to the recumbents forum and click Paste, the code will appear with brackets around it The IMG will be in [] starting brackets and [/] end brackets. Then the photo will appear.

Extra hint: If you work at a "top-secret" workplaces with an Internet that block photos or photosharing websites like Photobucket from coming over a firewall, then nothing will appear, and you'll be left scratching your head, asking 'where's my photos?'. I learned this the hard way!

Wow, another beautiful creation by Robert. Thanks for sharing the photos. I can't wait for the next Battle Mountain Drag Races. You have made the drag race an even more exciting event. Thanks for all your efforts Robert.

Thank you for posting those Upright Mike! I, for the life of me, cannot figure out how to do it? I have a couple more pic's from Robert that you might like. I'm going to follow your instructions & see how I do.
