Default Im new, just bought my first bike a few weeks ago!

Hey everyone. I just joined this forum to hopefully learn some things about riding. I recently just bought a 1992 Honda CBR 600 F2. it only has 14k miles on it and the body was in better shape than i thought. i took the MSF course and i actually went out riding twice for like an hour each day even though it is like 40 degrees here in NJ. I am trying to get the picture of my bike up on here, but it says the file is too large. Any help would be appreciated. Well, i look forward to learning from the best, and hopefully advance in this awesome f***ing sport! haha. thanks everyone. ill be talkin to ya

Welcome to the family. I had the same problem with my photo being too large as well. I took the photos I wanted to upload and copied them from "My Pictures" to "Desktop" (this way if you mess them up you will not lose them). Right click on each photo and go into properties. Choose the "Open with" selection and open the photo with whatever image editing software your computer has on it. Open the photo in the image editing section and go into editing and start to reduce the size of the pixels in your photo. As you do this, your photo may seem to be too small to be seen once you upload it to this forum. But as you'll see, it'll be just fine and will appear a lot larger once it's posted. You want the pixel size to be below 200 by 200. This should work depending on the image editing software you are using. I hope this helps. Keep huggin'!

Thats where the phrase "Welcome to the Addiction" was spawned :P hehehe


If you ever need anything, there are plenty of people around that are definately up to snuff. Just about everyone on here can tell you how to take one of our engines completely apart, repair the smallest of peices, and then put it back together without any problems. The only difference is... some prefer to do it with a beer j/k


take it easy, feel free to ask questions...

Chris

P.S. dont feel TOO bad, as I am addicted too
