Gonna test editing now...

2019-02-13 19.58.05.jpg
2018-12-24 20.09.07.jpg
I'm also checking to see if the spaces are retained before the first and after the last image.
Aaaaand... GO!

EDIT - Oh, SWEET! Extra bonus test: cateyetech slipped a post in while I was composing this and, while it kicked me into preview mode, making my heart sink, it DIDN'T dump my images when I clicked 'submit'.

Is it working?
Yes. You can't see if not logged in but there when you are. Sweet.

Yea the 650 and 700 had a lot in common and both were great machines. Sadly mine broke the crank chain. About the time I messed up my back and I sold it as was. Some thought the 700/750 were decedents of the 650. Idea was the same but the engines were totally different but build to the same concept (hyrdaulic lifters, narrow width wit stacked starter and alternator, basic layout of the system - shaft?)

In Europe it was a 750 cc in a different chain drive frame. Nice machine. Also a Police version more akin to the 700. I had a problem that I took to a shop one time. They test rode it, the guys were hot rod bent over twisty types, they really were impressed. It looked normal, get it up over 7k and the tiger came out of the tank.

I hated chains, I hated the new sim valve thing, the 700 SC was all I asked for (also looked at the 700 (750?) Sabre but found d the S first. I think I paid all of $1500 for it.

That's funny. Mine was dumping photos and changing subtitles to said photos in "Rides and Reports" just a few hours ago. Past few days on same on the same thread I posted multiples no probelm, but just now, no. I ain't complaining though. I just deal with it.

Well it works now. I swear last night it wasn't ...but I digress. John I'll have to add extra $$ come pay upfront time for using up the download bytes. Thanks for tackling this issue. I know it perturbed a lot of us whether we voiced it or not. If you do resign, please make note of the fix to the new admin :!: :cheers:

So, is everyone just post-testing all their pictures from the last 6-7 months now? Any picture, doesn't have to be about Urals?
Here's mine (just two):

Asked my wife if we had any peanut butter in the house. She pulled a jar out of the pantry but I spied her quickly looking at the back label.
Too quickly! Then she said "Yes of course we have peanut butter".
