Nice collection of pictures... some of those bikes might be scramblers in someone's mind, but not in reality - upswept pipes might make it look like one, but why are there bobbers in the mix? or that CT90?

I just wanted to figure out how to make and share a large photo gallery. My quick criteria was "protected exhaust". I tried to cull most of the porn. If not, you gotta love those tits.

Yea I realize nobody is ever goinna pull a 600 pound 1200 cc "scrambler" up the bank of a creek bed.

they link just fine individually - I've done it. You just have to go to the "share" icon and then "create link", then copy the link and post it here

so I just tried to post the picture doing it this way above (but with the missing brackets in place at each end) and it displayed nothing at all (blank space), but if you do a hyperlink it works

Ancientdad, can you post a pic of the headlight bracket you are using? I was looking at those on ebay and I'm wondering how they look on the thinner tubes with the spacers? I'm assuming you have 35mm forks on your 450?

They are the stock forks (assumedly 35mm, not sure, haven't measured them) and I had to use one shim on each. They're from Emgo and 4into1.com has them... but don't get the black ones, they'll likely be scuffed up (fine scratches) when you get them from not being properly padded and immobilized in the packaging, had to return mine and go with polished instead

Thanks, yeah I wanna get the polished ones for my CX which has super spindly 33mm forks. I just don't want them looking way to oversized.

It comes with enough shims to work with them, but I get what you mean... it isn't bad on mine, but it would look better without the black plastic in there

That pic helps, I think they would be fine on the CX. I may use some leather as the the shims, I did that with the turn signal brackets I modified and that looks pretty good.

While this single album worked fine and was easy to create, Google Photos only allows one album to be shared with the public per link.
That is a deal breaker for me. I want to be able to create many albums and share them all. I will keep looking at other photo share sites.

I went and ordered the EMGO brackets, if I use both sets of shims they fit the 33mm CX forks just fine. Thanks for the info.

They look kinda like the ones I have on My Yamaha. One set of shims to install. I had some trouble getting them to stay put on the fork tubes, too slippery inside, they wanted to slide down from the weight of the headlight. Tom, did you have any issues keeping them in place?
