Caboverbob,

I tried to reply to your PM but it is saying that you are full. It looks like you found a way to load pics the way you wanted.

What I do is upload my pics to Photobucket, which is one of those online picture archive websites. Photobucket makes it easy to share photos on the web.

Once I have my pictures in Photobucket, then the photobucket gives you an IMG code for each picture you upload. All I do is copy the IMG code for the picture I want from photobucket and paste it in the message part of the thread or reply in Roadglide.org.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Once you get everything together, you have to let us know how you like the speakers...

Saddlebag lids came back from Sidecar Cycles a few days ago. Grill cloth will match when we douche the bike in black, 'til then I'll survive. Nice solid mounting system inside for 6.5" speakers.


Bag latches from JH Choppers. A special thanks to JayKS for spending my $$$ on these suckers ! He also did an ignition switch cover with the "G" on it, pics soon.

Got the pipe wrapped and installed today, fired it up and to my surprise it fired up right away.

Floorboards goin to powder coat Monday, should get 'em back and installed Wednesday

Had to buy some used calipers after I screwed up my freshly powder coated ones, these will get PC'ed next winter. Toby is my best helper, he never gives me any shit or drinks any of my beer

Back side of the Sidecar Cycles 6.5" speaker mount inside the lids
