I think I posted the link to the first image then came back and edited the post for the 2nd, but I've never had issues posting more than 1 image at a time before.

Are you using an image hosting site (Photobucket, Smugmug, Picasa, etc.) or are you trying to upload directly to this site?

A friend helped, though. But we made it together. Wind-screen mount-bits + turn-signal relocators, for the HP2.

I made this small bracket to hold a switch for my Hella lights. I like it because you can easily reach it without removing your hand from the grip. Just a thumb stroke away.

I was trying a direct upload to the site and hit a wall after one pic was posted. Direct message stating one picture upload limit. I think this was something to do with Ralph's message about cutting out bandwidth waste

I think I'll try using Photobucket instead.

Roughly, how much did that work cost? I had an idea to remove the pillion for long trips, have a plate laser cut, welded up to mount where the pillion goes. This would allow camping gear etc to be strapped to this plate say in a hotel room, walk out to the bike pop it on and away you go. I did a long trip last year where we camped some and did hotel rooms. We did something similar by strapping the camping gear to folding chairs, then bungee the chair to the bike. It saves a ton of time.

Started out with 2" raw stainless steel strap, and did not like the look, so painted it to match...
