Well that didn't work.  If the link doesn't work took a pic when my NH rolled over 88,888 miles recently.  Would much rather ride than try to navigate my way through the wonderful world of computers.

Your photo opens in a  new tab when I click the link, I wasn't sure which bike you were talking about until I saw your 91-03 750 speedometer full of 8s. 
Good work there, and much useful experience to share I'll bet.
Skol!

Yeah, I don't think you can do direct sharing from a Google account.

Yeah, because Google doesn't use an extension in the link to the image.

Have to use another hosting site like Imgur or SmugMug.  Don't use Photobucket.

Congrats on the Crazy 8's.

Photo


I'm no computer techie, but I started using Google + to host images when photobucket went for the $$.  I posted this shot from the google chrome browser with no problem from google +.

L/L - congrats on your mileage milestone.  If you are waiting for the NH to wear out before grabbing an R1200, then I'm sorry to tell you that you might be waiting forever!!

Ride on, my friend....

Very true Pants.  And now I am back on NHF on Mozilla and the pic does not show.  Time to add more smiles on the 750.

Can any of you computer whiz kids help this old fart solve this image hosting quandary.  The link above will take you to a pic I posted in August from google +.  It shows on my computer no matter which browser I use, but the pic of my 88888 odometer from 8:14am today only shows from google chrome browser.   Doesn't make sense to me.

I see the pic that you posted using Chrome, and I'm using Opera.  However, I did follow the link in the first post so I'm guessing that what I'm seeing is actually cached locally instead of being pulled from Google.  That could be what's happening with your Chrome as well -- the reason you're seeing it there is the browser is serving it rather than the host serving it.

I have not used my flickr account in almost 8 years, so needless to say I forgot about it while using photobucket since 2010.  Looks like it's  back to flickr.
