Mikey,


goto www.imgur.com and set up an account.
then you can upload images one at a time, or a whole folder full at once for Albums.


works a treat. Here is how your photo will look had you uploaded it to Imgur.com









you just click on the Imgur.com image to make it come up to Full Size, then Right Click on the image, then select " copy Image Location "


then in your post here, you click on the Yellow icon Landscape of a mountain, and paste that Image Location URL there. click OK and you see how it looks.

you can also Create an Album here on this forum, and do exactly the same thing.
that is preferred, and Imgur might die a horrible death some day, we loose all of our pictures.

Pulled the stock aluminium levers off and took them from faded black to polished aluminum. Took about an hour but time well spent.

Started polishing the GL1100 valve covers. Pretty tough to get the clear coat off, but will be worth it.

Try carb cleaner (usually a combination of acetone and methylene chloride) using Scotchbite or similar to get the goo off.

I learned there are actually grits of wire wheels for grinding, I use a high grit to remove paint and now clear coat. This works great when doing forks on the bike, then buffing them with a cloth wheel. For super tight spots I use a dremel. I have done intake chambers on ATV heads the same way.

Ordered a New Windshield and installed it today, a little taller than my Homemade one. Works great though, it will take some getting used too though.

Looked at her, sleeping in the shop, jumped on the lawn tractor and mowed a couple acres of grass.
