I did a day-trip to the Americade rally (Lake George, NY) yesterday (on the fire-breathing Burgman 650), and spied this very fancy Cross bike parked in the vendor area. With the 21" front wheel, and the forged crash bars, I didn't know if I was looking at a Cross Country, or a Magnum, or what (i.e., some sort of hybrid), but I suppose that's neither here nor there.

In any case, I thought some of you folks might enjoy a look, so here goes (I blanked out the license plate, except the Pennsylvania part, and that's a Honda Grom parked behind it):

Sweet looking bike. But you didn’t need to black out the tag. Pretty sure everyone can see it when it’s out of his garage.


Don’t take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

Yep, you're right. But not my bike, and some people -- for whatever reason(s) -- are sensitive about showing plates (on both bike and car forums), so I thought I'd play it safe, not possibly get the owner pissed at me, etc.

That is kind of strange, and also that it works on your phone.

What is a little different from the way a lot of pics in threads is that I tend to link directly to photos on my personal web site (Bill & Dot's Excellent Pages (Home)), as opposed to uploading photos directly into a post.

See if you can see the single pic in this post, in which I did the same thing: https://www.victoryforums.com/34-victory-cross-country-cross-roads/200227-brake-light-wiring-2012-xc-3.html#post2550929

BTW, I tried out my Fancy PA Vic post in Chrome (desktop, on a Mac, not signed in) and it works fine. I wonder if you have some option set for Chrome that prevents links to outside sites (i.e., not the site that showing a given page) from working, or something along those lines. My version of Chrome has all the factory defaults, no add-ons, etc.; I just use it for testing pages.

Why chrome turn signals? Ugh. Looks so out of place. I've seen those gas caps for sale. Not my thing but fancy I guess.

Overall nice looking ride.

Figured out the issue. I was accessing from my work Laptop and they block certain sites that host pictures. Since the pictures were hosted on your site the pictures were not showing. This is why I could see them from my phone and also at home on my Mac.

Hello Jakvis, web pictures are just links to an image file stored on the web server.
It could be you have a unusual screen size and the image is getting squeezed.
I would make sure all updates are installed. Maybe re-install Chrome, and run Malwarebytes.
Something could be blocking images for security purposes (my browser is blocking Adobe Flash as we speak).
It could also be slow broadband, firewall, or photo file format (jpeg, gif, etc.).

As a sidebar - how are crash bars like that mounted?
