    @#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.

    A pedant writes: That Suzuki GSXR750K3 is back to front. The exhaust and rear brake are on the right, not the left.

    #1 – look at the logo on the tank, the original artist had it right, but the entire photo has been flipped at some point.
