#1 – look at the logo on the tank, the original artist had it right, but the entire photo has been flipped at some point.
All hail Worth1000.
@#1: The image of the bike’s been flipped because:
a: the logo’s mirrored
b: If he were really doing a wheelie, waving his right hand would cause him to immediately fall back down, as it’s the hand that should be on the throttle keeping the bike up in the air.
Gotta wonder why he wouldn’t be riding a Voxan or Wakan or some other French sport bike?!
@#4(b): or, he could have jacked up the idle speed and is controlling his wheelie with the clutch.. (although it looks more like he’s got a hold of the throttle cable rather than the clip-on) /pedant
Point B: not really. If you get the balance right and the gear right you can hang pretty well in a wheelie w/o your hand on the gas, and if you’ve got a throttle lock, which a lot of stunters do, you’re definitely fine for a while.
