Adding photos to our news stories in the news forum...

Much more work for me, but do you think it's worth it?

Agreed, photos will enhance news stories.
Also useful to help educate those of us with less technical knowledge.

Ok then, I'll do my best to add photos where they are available to me (some articles have a media link to them, others not). Suzuki stories are really good for photos.

If the read count goes up on each news story then I know it's working. :D

Thanks for the feedback guys/gals.

I think people would appreciate a small pic, especially with bike or product introductions, where we really don't know that the thing looks like. I don't think pics are needed with general industry news, but it can be a case to case thing.
