As Peejman said, IMGUR photo hosting service is probably your best bet. Lots of us use it. It's free to use and extremely simple to set up an account with.

Once your account is set up then upload your images to it. When that's done click on the thumbnail of the image(s) you want to include in your post. That will open the full image in a page where you'll be able to copy the link that displays the image when pasted into your post.

Paste that link where you want the photo to be in your post, then click 'Preview Post' to see how your photo(s) will look. Once your're satisfied with its/their placement and your post is complete, click 'Submit' and you're done..

@Craig1 : Congratulations on your new find. 2200 miles is exceptionally low for a 1992, so I'm guessing it sat for a long time. Shine a flashlight in the tank, and check for rust.

If it runs cleanly, don't touch the carb (other than backing out the idle mix screw to 3 turns), but a bike that has been sitting for a long time is likely to have varnish, and removing, disassembling, and cleaning the carb might be necessary if it runs rough.

You will find lots and lots of community information in this forum. The search function is your friend.

Another vote for Imgur. I am one of the many affected by Photobucket's policy change last sumnmer, which left me with many dead photo links in old posts that cannot be edited. For people unaccustomed to using markup tags, Imgur's ability to create a link using BBC code is a great feature; simple copy/paste.

Nice looking bike, Craig. Reminds me of the '93 I drove to Flagstaff to purchase and bring back home. After sorting a couple of issues it ran like a champ, then went to a new owner not far away shortly after picking up the '06 I now ride.

Glad you like IMGUR. It'll do everything you need done photo hosting wise, and is beyond simple to use..
