    5-Spot and Dog

    While he can't keep up w/ me on the trail, he sure does like riding [in my backpack!]

    Smile 5 Spot and Spot

    I can see why he goes in your pack. Poor little bugger, missing his back legs and all.

    good eye - I use a putter to stir up burning logs in my firepit - kinda my take on the whole sport of golf.

    Not very fond of golf - as Sam Clements once said "Golf is a waste of a perfectly good afternoon".......

    5 hrs of golf vs. 5 hrs of ridin'

    not a hard decision....

    LOL...Great reply! There's enough room on the side of that dog for advertisement.

    Good looking dog, btw.

    I can see it now "Turner" stenciled on one side of the poor little bugger and "Homer" on the other

    My Dog!

    Oh man, I miss that little bugger. Still got Spot though and just added a Mav fork. I'd post pictures but can't figure out the compression issue(?) Camera is 5 megs and this website won't accept the size pic.

    BTW nice use for the golf stick, stirring the fire pit. Those things came straight from Hell.

    Next time turn the pixel resolution down before you take the picture...you won't need 5MP for much. I have one and never go over 1.2mp for general stuff.

    But you still need to compress the photo. Your camera probably came with a picture editor. Look for a feature that is called something like "Still Height and Width formatting" it is usually near the save or save as feature in the pull down menus. Then find the JPEG compression adjuster and bring it back to 6-8 out of 10...if that makes any sense. The idea is to get overall picture size below 200Mb. Hope that helped somewhat.

    Thanks Bud :-)

    When the sun comes out again (Sat?) I'll snap the Mav/Spot.

    Sorry for the thread hijack...

    You can also download GIMP for windows. It's like freeware Photoshop, and while it's probably overkill, you can at least resize, compress, and adjust your existing pics for posting. Best part of course is, it's free.

    Nice Honda/Turner graphics scheme! You probably don't have to worry about anyone messing with your bike, when that dog is around....he looks tough.
