Not likely- the shadow is perfect, there is no difference in the road texture of shadow/sunlit areas, and the white line through the GS windshield is distorted with the curve of the plastic. If it's Photoshopped, it's damn well done.

No, I think this is just a case of someone either riding a road above their skill level, or just a careless mistake.

If it is, someone spent quite a bit of time photoshopping several pics from a couple of corners.

FYI, there are two different riders in those pics.

One on a GS and the other, in DirtDabber's post is on a GSAdv.

And that's all I'm allowed to say...

There were several spots I was cranking a monster lean angle at all of 25mph, right in front of a cop wearing his best Village People mirrored sunglasses meanie face.

It was actually a hell of a lot of fun and excellent practice. Without much of a "line" to choose from, I had to concentrate on the techniques required to simply deal with the road surface, contours, and curves at hand.
I have found at the Gap, that if you maintain a constant 35 to 40 mph (edit: in your own lane) you'll out run

99% of the people there. Especially the numb nuts that are wide open on the straights.

The first pic is the reason I haven't been beack in 3+ years, even though I'm

less than an hour away.

(plus there are better roads with nearly zero traffic closer to home )
