Where it looks most photochopped to me is right under the YAMAHA lettering. The collector pipes just seem out of place to me. Definitely a photo that has been enhanced. I do like it though.... in an "almost a nekkid street bike looking thing" kinda way.
The questions is not how far. The question is, do you poses the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as needed.

There's news on the 'new R1' in here. All of the new cool bikes are in here. I saw it on the internet, saw, it must be true. biggrin.gif
Actually, this site comes out and says the pics from the above link are chopped.

Too bad that R1 pic is a fake, I really liked the looks of it.

Thanks for the link Randy - interesting read. That Confederate Wraith has to be the ugliest bike Ive ever seen. Bar none.
