I notice that this thread got a bunch of 'views'. But it doesn't show which post got which number of views? Probably not important but could have been very entertaining as to which video was more popular.

Ok? Here is a re-post of the link. If it doesn't embed, too bad. Of all the bike carp-ola that I have seen or has been sent to me, this one never fails to entertain.

about 90secs

Tim here-- posting another little test video to see whether it embeds or not:
about 12 sec --and, as you can see, it does! Seems that if you copy a link to a YouTube video (right-click, copy link, then paste link into a post here) and it has "....com/watch?v=…." in the middle of it the video clip will be embedded in the post. I hope I will remember this little tidbit when I eventually have to do this again! --Tim

Heh. So I thought I would look at the video file type and try to figure out why you were able to post it. I gotta stop trying to do Forum stuff on my iPad, 'cause somehow I managed to lose the whole message--including of course the video. (Second time something like this has happened to me while I was using my iPad to do Forum editing!)

So the mystery remains. --Tim

Essentially, I don't know. I musta just got lucky? I grabbed it out of ADVRider and thought that I was posting it as a link to YouTube. Imagine my surprise to see it ready to go in the Forum? You might try asking our ever-luvin Dear Forum Mod, The Mighty Tim Colburn, to shed some light on this?

Ya think that the imbed will wake some members up to the joys of this Forum? My guess, prolly not.
