    Almost any image-editing program would allow you to scale a large image file down to a reasonable smaller size. I like GIMP, which is a free utility available for any operating system and relatively easy to use. I scale all my images down so that the larger dimension is reduced to 800 pixels. That's a handy size for posting to the forum.

    It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    See my photo tips below. Most storage sites like PhotoBucket automatically adjust some pics when you upload them, so they are already to go here.

    OK, so I never got to post some pics of my first CX 500.
    These pics are even from before I bought the bike, so its looking a little like a rust bucket.

    I am however progressing very well with the cleaning process. Here are a few pics, but I got the bike without the pillion box.
