cool shot, who is that? I just want to make sure I NEVER buy a used bike from him!!! That had to tweak a few things when he came down.

Wink Floats like a butterfly......

Lands like a brontosaurus - can you imagine the sound of that heavy beast landing a split second after that picture was taken?? The RS is not a very svelte flyer......

great picture and also the reason i don't buy used motorcycles because you never know if the previous owner beat the shit out of it or not. now a question.....is the RS suspension built to with stand that kind of abuse???? in addition to taking some air it looks like he's got a lot of extra weight on the bike with the bags. i'll give the guy some credit because there's no way i'd do that to my bike although i will admit i've thought about it.

Maybe that's why more places don't rent motorcycles ...

The picture looks real. Still, it reminds me that anything is possible with digital editing.

Nice photoshop but the angle of the sun on the bike and the placement of the shadow on the ground don't appear to match.

Does make you wonder if you can trust anything you see in print anymore....
