What’s The Difference Between Rake And Trail?

Broken link guys, sorta ... as in itll take you to a blank page. If you right click and open in new tab, itll take you there correctly. Looks like another webz issue as discussed early

I think the problem may be on your end as the link works for me. I click on the picture as well as the link and they both take me straight to the page.

Possibly since it tries to redirect (Clicking on pic or link) via the forum instead of direct to site.

You can sell reflectors for up to $55 a pair, if you *smile* and put them on eBay as a unique mod, (like $2 mirrors) ......
