    Good Lord. Some bulbs on my 08 Caddy SRX I took the wheels and fender liners off, but for the headlamp, the whole bumper had to come off. Silliest crap I've ever seen.

    Only if you want to store/serve pics on the AN server. If you upload to some other image hosting service (Google Drive, Pbase, etc) then you can copy image links to here which get displayed without being VIP.

    But VIP is generally a good idea to keep this site going.

    Yes, all standard photo sharing sites can host images to be linked at other sites. Beware however that if that site changes its sharing policy ( like PhotoBucket previously did), the images will no longer display from any linked locations.

    To post a linked image, first go to your hosting site, display the image, right click it to get a pop up list it items, select Copy Image URL, go to you AN message reply and click the little landscape icon ( next to the happy face icon) in the tools bar above the text entry area. Now paste in the copied URL in the image URL box, hit enter/return and your pic should display right where your cursor was in the text box.

    That looks good. And should be far more enjoyable to ride too.

    However, you seem to have forgotten to remove the reflectors from the forks David...!

    How easy is it to do that without damage?

    Very easy, it’s a double sided tape holding it on.
    Pushing down will loosen them, then a plastic spatula of some kind will ping ‘em off.

    Some alcohol / brake cleaner or similar will be needed to remove glue residue.

    Job done !

    Usually, a bit of hot air from a hairdryer helps soften double sided tape adhesives.

    And, I've found WD-40 is excellent for removing most adhesive residues from just about anything. I even use it when trying to separate tow parts with a gasket between...I think it seeps in between the surfaces to relieve the suctional forces helping keep them together.

    Man. I have a Naked also, but now seeing yours with the polished tank, I like it!

    Is the crime rate in your area bad? I noticed the chain on the front. Couldn’t they just remove the wheel?
