how can I insert pictures in thread notes

This is working not bad. Lots of folks willing to share lore. I really appreciate it.

I still need some advise. When I try to imbed a photograph here it prompts me for a http address for the photo. Is it possible to insert photos from my files (jpg images)? Or do I need to set up a web site to hold pictures to share?

You can add photos from a file. When you go advanced and select manage attachments the window pops up where you can browse for the file you want. Note size limits. You may need to resize a big photo.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Hooray, thanks a bunch. I'l be cruising now.

Speaking about "used to be fast....." I have old Porsches. Someone pointed out to me a newish one, the kind that go really, really, scary fast, and asked me what I thought about it. (they're a lot cheaper that the vintage (356s, that is) ones). I said they're beautifully engineered and super quality construction, and they're fairly quiet, thanks to the German's with their delicate ears. But, I said, I'm not into fast, I'm into loud. (I'm old and loud is safer than fast).

So my message is "its more fun to drive a slow (and loud) car fast, than a fast (and quiet) car slow"

350B fitting on the fairing

________________________________________
I am now mounting a fairing on my 350B. I am informed that this fairing, and its mounting brackets, originally came with this moto. I see no reason to question this, but I would appreciate any comments.

I would like to discuss and share the details of what I am doing. The attached photos are as follows.

The first one is of the bike with the fairing just set on. The rear mounts are in place, but the front mount is not yet in place.

The second one is the fairing alone.

The next two photos show the, in place, rear mount and the front mount alone.

The last photo shows the front mount in place before restoration work was done (in Italy). From this photo I can see the orientation of the front mount, and it suggests that the usual "ear" brackets that hold the lamp housing onto the steering post are not in place. I wonder if they need to be removed or could they be just swung aside to accommodate this front mount. Any thoughts?

The bike will be shown at the May Sonoma/Marin concourse near San Francisco where they are featuring vintage Italian motos. This will be the first public appearance of this moto in the US. Its not even registered here. And this fairing must be on.

This is where I am in the process and I would appreciate any comments of how to do stuff and anything else.

Roger

The last picture doesn't look like from the same bike Roger. Or was it taken before restoring ? However it looks really nice and that is a cool looking fairing there. I haven't seen that on any 350 before. Surely yummy.
