He can flat foot the bike....no fail.

As a matter of form he should have a Tallboy PBR in one hand

Dog I wish this was in the basement...

I've got a 30in inseam and can barely touch on my 950A. Think that rider probably cares about as much about what you think of it as I do.

You barely touch your 950A because it scares you, at least that is what Yeti says...

The fact that you listen to him and give weight to what he says is very telling!

He is pulled up to pump 4 and the diesel side of the pump, so I guess that could be the problem?

Helmets are discretionary in Texas, so everyone in the original shot are ahead of the curve for the location. Both riders, based on their gear choices, are Squids with limited riding experience and none whatsoever with road rash. The rider in the back appears to be directly behind the first rider, so has limited his potential escape routes if an issue develops behind him.

Most likely to find Shiner rather than PBR in Austin. How many did the KTM rider have before this photo? (Me likely Shiner, PBR not so much!)

I lived and rode for many years in Texas, so am fairly familiar with the riding details. Personally, I was ATGATT even in the middle of summer, but a lot of other riders choose otherwise.

in Vietnam it's so commonplace to see four people on a scooter, people hardly even notice. When we were there we saw at least a few 5 up scooters, one of which the mom was breastfeeding

Riding a motorcycle is not safe(it's part of the allure.). Don't kid yourself.

Structural steel working is not safe, it's not a reason to do it unsecured.
