First, many thanks to ALLY who explained me how to show the photos on the forum.
In november 2008 we cam from France to northern Thailand in order to make off road motorcycling in North Thailand.
We went to Pop Rental in Chiang Mai and rent 2 KLX KAWA 0 Kms new model !!!
Now let's present the team.....

Véronique trying the motorcycle.
The helmets are for mountainbikes, it's less safe than those for motorcycles but we couldn't take them in our luggages.
We left the Chiang Mai city, with the GPS, and went up to Doi Suthep, this road goes up and up and turns to dirt near a coffee plantatation

We stopped here to have a drink.

Looking for our path, we were lost, there are many trails in this area

Hi there Awbari

Well I am no expert in this but merely trying to help a fellow biker wanting to share their experience.

Below are 4 image links taken from your post shown here as code for demonstration.

The first 2 will not show the image, the second 2 will.

Code:
[ATTACH=full]36142[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=full]36143[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=full]36145[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=full]36146[/ATTACH]

As you can see this is the result.

I believe if you select the code which contains the s800/ in it, as shown in the code lines below, your images will appear as below.

Code:
[ATTACH=full]36152[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=full]36153[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=full]36154[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=full]36156[/ATTACH]

And this is the result of having changed the s912 to read s800.

Maybe in your excitement & haste to show your pics, you inadvertantly selected the incorrect type of code to copy on the occasions that your images do not appear.

If you copy & paste the appropriate code from the image hosting site for forums and then use the preview facility on the forum, you will catch the error before the world sees the broken links.
:wink:

For any reader wondering how to see the code behind the image, just right click your mouse and select properties. The info in that pop up box will show your image dimension and the path to it's source.

Looking forward to your successful post, that ride certainly looked fun with your group.

Ally
