Spy shots

Transferred post, Originator: mikeodial

This post from cycleforums has a bit more of a close up of the original posted, and a "photochop" of the posters idea of the machine.

Note the spy shot seems to have a rack mounted on the box and turn signals in the fairing.....

Wonder where picture was taken...

Did you notice the 'palm' tree top left. Almost looks like Middle East . . . or perhaps Southern Cal? Why either place? Am not a Europe expert but picture doesn't look like Europe.

Why are these "SPY PHOTOS" aways so damn blurry?? Come on! One, maybe two, but everyone I see looks like the photographer doesn't know how to focus and dipped his camera in a bowl of dirty water before he snapped the picture.

They're probably all cellphone camera shots so the rider doesn't get suspicious and ride off too soon.

Thumbs down Fake

Don't spend much time looking at the 'spyphoto'. If you get into the high level pixellation mode, you can tell its a touched up photochop. Whoever did this to be famous spent some time on it, but the bad picture is more than just a filter put on to hide the blemishes. I'm not saying the concept of the K12GT is a hoax, but the picture is not authenticate.
