This is supposed to be a thread for seat pics: where's the pic?

About a year ago I finally bit the bullet and got a custom seat, and forward pegs. I'm 6'2" and was tired of my knees pointing skyward. Folks might forget that a lot of vintage Sportsters had these flat seats, letting you move around for comfort. This one won't win any "best of shows," but you can't really see much of it when I'm sitting on it. The pan came from a Mustang 2-up DayTripper.

imgbb.com and imgur.com, I use both. When posting use the bbcode medium/link (imgbb)otherwise the pics are too big, Imgur use edit and post the pics at 1024x728 or less. It takes practice and that's what the TEST area is for (opening page).

That really depends how big your pics are to start with. I reduce mine to 1024 pixels wide before uploading them to ImgBB, then use the 'full' links.

That's true. I noticed my camera and a lot of others out there are over 2300 wide. Every cell phone is different, tho. That's why it takes practice and the "TEST AREA". I know you've helped me more than you Know.
