78 GL1000 Windjammer SS Headlight Removal

Howdy all!
This is my first Goldwing and I don’t think she was taken care of much. Been doing the basics to er, such as plugs, coolant change, and oil change. Then my headlight died and for the life of me I cannot figure out how this bugger comes out! If y’all have any advice that’d be appreciated.

You grab the chromed plastic ring around the headlight and twist it, forget which direction, CCW I think. It comes off and the headlight bulb is free. The rings can be stubborn.

Well I just feel dumb now! That was way easier that I was making it out to be! Plus it’s just a H4 bulb to make it even better! Thanks for the reply!
