Default '89 harley sportster oil change

I recently bought an '89 883 Sportster. My question is where the heck is does one drain the oil from. There's no drain plug, and there's no hose I can conveniently remove. The only option I can see is to remove the hose from the bottom of the oil pan, in which case oil goes everwhere, or just yank the the entire oil pan out so I can dump it out into an oil pan, not a very viable option either.

I have a '88 and supposedly the Oil Drain Hose runs from the oil tank to a dead end on the battery tray. Stuck with a hose clamp. I can see it looking at the bike, Haven't done my first oil change in my onwership of the bike yet though.
