Looks like it to me
Just noticed they're wearing SIDIs
Ahhhhhhhh nooooooooo. The start of a boot shoe motorcycle sub thread.:huh
Here you can plainly see his head moving back and to the left. Perhaps his GoPro "Zapruder Edition" will have some footage from the grassy knoll just ahead.
Looks great to.me.
Notice...we're NOT looking at the rear of the bike straight away, Therefore I believe, by looking at the bend in the elbows...hi right arm being more outstretched, his left appearing to be tucked in a bit, that he IS off-centered to the inside. The angle throws it all off.
Oh? Look like normal speedplays to me.
(admittedly, I ride a carbon fredbike with mtb cleats, I like the shoes better)
I'm seeing Frogs.
When SPDs first came out, a guy just starting out at my velodrome was using them. Thankfully he was slow, and therefore was never in a position to pull a foot in front of me at 30 mph. But I did envy how he was able to walk with dignity between races.
No, that's just her ass.
Yeah, I didn't think it looked like it was touching in the picture, but it was a little too close for comfort for me... I was just wondering if he's ever gotten his heel in there before.
The single bullet theory has now been irrefutably proven.
He has wide adventure bars not clip-ons. If he moves his upper body any more to the left he isn't going to be able to easily reach the right bar. Dunno if he has any tankbag to impede the forward lean he'd need to be able to reach out more, or if he just doesn't care to.
I use a position like that sometimes on my 990. Moving my butt over is sufficient weight shift for how hard/fast I am usually wanting to corner on public roads, and it leaves my head & chest behind the still air bubble of the pseudo windshield. I don't ride to drag hard parts on that bike with its dualsport tires. And I don't even have a tankbag.
Front tire is on the ground. What you're seeing is sunlight on the pavement and shadows from the bike. Kinda looks like the front tire is off the ground, but it isn't.
For the record, I am a pant-cuff-outside-the-boot type of rider.
I hope you paid enough attention to realize that he's posing for a static photo, and he's not going anywhere...
D'OH!! That's what I get for skimming through a chunk of this thread...
Well played, sir. Very well played!
