Just trying to practice this so I remember how it is done. This is what my co-workers did to my Suzuki Bandit, the bike I had before the RT, while I was at work one day. Fun bunch, huh.
Is that checkerboard trim a factory option?
It looks good. There is a lot of body work on an RT, and the strip breaks it up nicely, without interfering with the angles of the feature lines.

I have downloaded irfanview and gone through the instructions to change pixel and dpi size but my photo is too large (197kb). How do I reduce the phote size under the 160kb limit to put on the forum?

Thanks. I reduced the pixel size even further it worked. The picture was a bit small but it was okay.
Every scanner has a dotted scan adjustment feature reflected in the "Preview" screen seen on your computer. Use your "mouse" to drag the edges of this dotted image crop tool over your picture. Don't let the scanner just choose to scan "default". You have to help the scanner decide what size of a job it is asked to do.
So, you have selected correctly, then choose the type of file you want the scanner to save your image in and where,on your comptuer, the image will be found after you save it. Do not scan it to the internet from you scanner.
As indicated, don't expect the scanner to save the image in a particular size of photo unless you have entered that value in the scanners "preference" file, or setup file.
When you tell your scanner to save your scan, it will have a drop down menu to choose from and it will also have a drop down menu to choose an application to send the image to, like Adobe Photoshop or this other image enhancing program being promoted in these posts.
What is improtant is that an image scanned to a file MUST then be opened in an image enhancing program that can manipulate the image so that it is internet ready, ie. match the upload preferences desired to see the image and conserve space on the host drive.
I hope this posting is helpful?
