Northern Arizona Thanksgiving ride. 857 miles in three days. Made the 413 mile run back to Abq. on Saturday to beat the winter storms coming in. Wind was horrible from Grand Canyon to Williams but as soon as I turned South on I-40 became a head-wind so it wasn't too bad.

It was a zoo. Park was completely packed with people and crazy car drivers. Parked the bike and walked to the rim.

Jon - Thanks for posting that info.

If you forget how to post a picture, that info can also be found in the Message Board FAQ's under "How To Post a Picture to this Message Board" and the link viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4388

YES ! and please post photos:

This is the process to add an image, video or document to this Message Board, but first you need to understand a few limitations when attaching a file:

a) A maximum of 8 files can be attached to a single post.
b) If you have more than 8 files to share, submit multiple posts or you can upload your files to an on-line site and include a link to that site in your post
c) Only common file types can be attached (PDF, PNG, JPG, DOC, XLS, MOV, MP4, etc.).
d) Files must be NO LARGER than 10 MB in size
e) Pictures should be no larger than 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall
NOTE - smaller file sizes will load more quickly AND will take up less valuable server space. Please limit large file sizes to videos and reduce images to as small a file size as possible, otherwise we will have to impose smaller file size restrictions

TO UPLOAD A FILE TO A MB POST:
1 – log onto your Message Board account (not the same as logging into your Website account)

2 – start a new topic or post a reply to an existing topic

3 – near the bottom left of the screen you will see 3 tabs called ‘Options’, ‘Upload attachment’, and ‘Poll creation’ (guess which one you use to upload a photo, video or other file…)

4 – click on the ‘Upload attachment’ tab

5 – click on the ‘Browse…’ button located to the right of the ‘Filename:’ entry box (your images will display in the order they are added to your post, first image will be at the top and last image will be at the bottom)

6 – browse your computer, navigate to where the picture or document file is located and select that file (that file location and name will now appear in the ‘Filename:’ entry box)

7 – you can add a comment about the file in the ‘File comment:’ entry box located below the ‘Filename:’ entry box. You will also have an opportunity to enter a comment (or change your comment) in the ‘POSTED ATTACHMENTS’ area once you have completed #8 below.

8 - Click on the ‘Add the file’ button located to the right of the ‘Browse…’ button

9 – If your upload was successful, above the ‘Upload attachment’ tab you’ll see a new area titled ‘POSTED ATTACHMENTS’ with your file shown. You will also see an entry area to place a ‘File comment:’ – that is where you would enter a comment about the picture you uploaded and will show on your post, or a label for the file you are attaching to your post. Your comment will be shown immediately below your picture or document.

10 – to add more attachments to your post, click on the ‘Upload attachment’ tab again and start from #5 above

If your file failed to upload, nothing will show in the ‘POSTED ATTACHMENTS’ area and / or you will get an error message such as your file is too large or it is not one of the common file types permitted. When that happens, simply click on the ‘Upload attachment’ tab and start from #5 above.

Click on the ‘Delete file’ button if you want to delete a file or document from your post prior to clicking the ‘Submit’ button.

And, don’t forget, you can preview your post prior to submitting it by clicking on the ‘Preview’ button located to the left of the ‘Submit’ button near the bottom of the page.

I'll run this loop anytime. Great Meteor Crater and Grand Canyon tomorrow. Weather may be getting sketchy on Sunday. Need to be ready to bolt South and back to Abq. on Saturday. Didn't see a single bike on the road today.

In Holbrook, AZ. 259 miles today. Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. Awesome ride. Actually found a hotel with an open restaurant next to it. Ribeye for Thanksgiving, Yee-Haw!!

Is there a way to upload images here?

That sounds like a great loop. Can we do it again this spring?

I have INLAWS this weekend.

I'm leaving on Thursday morning to do a loop through Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, Great Meteor Crater, Grand Canyon and Canyon de Chelly if anyone wants to join. No real specific plan, just escaping Abq.
