Strom back up

Over four months ago I posted a thread titled "Strom down" (https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...trom-down.html) about a head-on with a semi. After a loooong wait, I finally got the good news that my baby wouldn't be written off, and I got a cheque, so work has started on the resurrection.
Its going to be a naked conversion, and this week, after getting new fork tubes, I finally got it to the point where it is rideable, but still very much a work in progress. The headlight brackets are temporary and I am still working on fibreglassing a new mount for the instrument panel. After that I have to work out how to clean up the tank, and what sort of paint job its going to get, but its just great to be back in the saddle again!

There are holes in the sky where the rain gets in,
and the holes are very small, that's why rain is thin.

I got the new instrument panel on today, it was a steep learning curve in fibreglassing and a LOT of sanding!

So, I tried to upload images I have in Google Photos, but using the image attach icon, nothing happened so I put in the link. Can anyone help with why I can't attach an image from Google Photos?

This is what I get from IE for your link above, likely explains why your inline version didn't work either. It doesn't work in Chrome either for me.


404. Thatís an error.

The requested URL was not found on this server. Thatís all we know.

Try logging out of Firefox and see if it still works.

So I used Microsoft Edge and got the same error message you did.
I still don't understand how one browser can find a web page and others can't. Its not like Google is hiding on the dark web.
