    A good report with pictures helps preserve an event and inspire others to give the next event a try. If someone is serious about putting together an involved ride report, we have a section of the forum that can be used for that.
    Having photos attached to the forum insure that the pictures remain on the forum should an “off-site” hosting plan end.
    Have a great rally.

    I no longer carry a SLR but still carry a compact camera because I like having a optical zoom.
    I wait until I return home to deal with pictures taken with the camera.

    I'll probably do that periodically (looks like much of our route will have spotty cell coverage and no wifi). In the past I've had trouble uploading photos at the rally in real time as Internet access was often S-L-O-W

    So am I, but I take the card out of my camera, hook it up to a gadget on my phone, copy the pics to the phone and then to the cloud. Instant backup.

    Upload a few to IG & FB, the rest are edited and used for other purposes later

    As a member of the MOA, I get greater personal reward by making other members feel a greater sense of belonging by showing them what's happening at the rally right now, not 90 days later.

    Also used to do this same thing from BMW press events, but I no longer contribute to the BMW ON.

    I'm not sure that's what Mosko Moto intended when they build their luggage but it's nice to know their gear can handle it.

    Thanks for the links! I sometimes wonder how much social clout / traction I lose out on by not posting photos from a ride / rally as it's happening. No one has ever complained in the comments. I have ride reports that come out a month after the ride but I tell people who are hungry for content that my Flickr has all of the photos a few days after the trip if they really want to browse - https://www.flickr.com/photos/adamjackson/?

    But if you look at this Flickr Album versus this Ride-report and the YouTube playlist, I personally think the ride report is a much more pleasant experience:

    but everyone these days wants to know what's going on this moment even if the quality is a little lower.

    Well, not everyone, but I can tell you that many do like a real-time teaser followed by progressively deeper detail. fwiw, it amplifies the return on the effort invested in creating the content.

    Also true, as you say, but somewhat of a bummer..... too many people do not appreciate graphically exquisite content, or even realize they're experiencing it.

    If we ever meet in person, remind me to tell you the story of Zen and the Ride to Redmond.

    Sounds good and I just spent a little too much time going through that page. That's a fantastic rally resource page....everything anyone would need in one place.

    Done in the days of very low bandwidth, and since there was only one Internet line for the entire rally, we got up at 4am to post the previous day’s pics. Another “what a difference 20 years makes” thing.

    Good times!

    I've volunteered the past few years to be an additional shooter for the magazine during the rally, and then turn them over to Bill. And have volunteered again for Great Falls. I don't post images to social media while I'm on the road. I don't want to broadcast where I am...and more importantly where I'm not. That way I can maintain OPS SEC. Right Ranger Reece?

    Tennessee was the first rally I missed in years and it looks like it was a blast.
