please tell me this is fake
If I see someone riding one of those I'm gonna laugh at their ass. That's just begging to get a milkshake slpattered upon it.
Looks photo shopped to me. Especially the back shot. all those angled lines look like they stretched the tail up.
Add a couple of doors and wheels and whammo! Car!
Ah hell, someone did that already.
That looks retarded.
Its all fun and games until a rogue gust of wind whaps that sail from the side.
gotta be fake. look how crooked and warped the tail looks, and besides, wtf is the point?
It's real. I've seen these pics before...
It's to help with wind/rain. Interesting idea, horribly executed, IMO.
Thats one amazing piece of PS work if it was a stretch of the original bike pic... Either its real or done by a pro photoshopper, either way it sucks bawls.
Kriz, You do know you can add elements to a picture in PS, not just stretch/skew whats already there right?
You did read what I quoted, which was from a post you wrote yes? You said it looks like they "stretched the tail up," which would be insane photoshopping if you wanted it to make it look that good. I know my way around photoshop, enough to know that it would be easier to just draw the thing as opposed to stretch it out from the bike itself and also that it would still take some mad skill to make it look that good.
Forget drawing the thing, just look at the detail and realism of the lighting at the joints. I've seen people do stuff like that in photoshop, people who do that kind of stuff for a living though.
I wasnt clear enough in that post I see. The top portion where the lines I wrote of looks as though they where chopped moved and then repeatedly stretched to build height in that shot. The lower portion could be stretched and manipulated to form something like that but seperately from the other portions. I dont see anyone just stretching a stock tail fairing into that shape. Way too much work. To say or think someone would is just rediculous.
My thoughts exactly, I guess I just misinterpreted your post.
No, I didnt elaborate. My fault. No biggie, its just a thread about a :ghey: bike.
And the nominee for understatement of the year...
I'm with everyone here. That's just fucking ridiculous. I wonder how many times they attached an umbrella to various parts of the bike before coming up with this idea.
The two black lines would drive me nuts on either side of the windshield. I think a better solution is to man up and take some wind in the face or get a helmet. (no offence KRAZGRL)
No offense taken. (why would I?)
I think it's horrific and could pose many safety issues anyway. Imagine lowsiding around a corner (afterall, who ever would put this thing on a bike probably isn't the brightest of the bunch) and being caught up with the bike and the "dome" instead of separating from them... Ouch.
Solution for surviving the elements: GEAR.
Chance of Rain: Rain suit over GEAR.
