Caption This: Factory "Rider" Busy "Riding"

Methinks the Spark 500 was not quite ready for production when this shot was taken. Or the Asiawing factory test rider just works his way up to riding the streets of Tai’an one small step at at time.

    Truth in advertising laws require that images depict the Spark 500 in its natural state.

    It just moves so fast that all the action pictures came out blurry.

    Okay. Now look fast. No, fast. No, like those guys who race. Yeah, fast
    Don't worry, we can photoshop smoke in, and the kickstand out. No problem. I know people at Google.

    You can't do it without making the cool motorcycle sounds.

    I used to go to these outdoor industry trade shows in Reno,NV (which is home to Bill Harrah's National Auto Museum and the coolest car in the history of Ever, the 1908 Thomas Flyer that won the New York-Paris race), and this friend of mine who lived up in Truckee, CA said the joke up there was, "Reno is so far up the Devil's Ass you can see Sparks!"
    This guy lives there.

      I saw that Thomas Flyer at Amelia Island a few years ago. It is awesome and if I remember correctly, in original condition.

    Shouldn't the headline read:
    Factory “Rider” Busy “Riding” a "Motorcycle"

    Kickstand testing: it's a tough job but someone's has to do it.

    I am so two-wheeled inept that I was studying the picture looking for something else that was not right with the bike, then I read the comments and saw that the kickstand was the point all along.

    Ugh, even KTM knockoffs look cool. Even if they dont, err, run.

    This is Asiawing's first prototype in developing factory training wheels.

    Hey, at least he's looking through the turn. If this was an ad for US media, he'd be looking directly at the camera through a mirrored visor.
    This reminds me of some old photographs shot by the Motor Company in the 1930s for use in line artwork. Smiling, carefree riders on a bike firmly clamped to a tabletop.
