I like it. Too many small changes for this to be fake. The fill flash is what gives the highlights and brings the wheels out better. Thats why they worked the shadow, to make the wheels stand out more.

I also agree about the fill flash. I am amateur photographer and use fill flash as indicated. I wonder why the color of the bike in the inserts is different, however. Anyway, here's my bike's picture taken on a late afternoon. Notice how there are bursts on the side even though the shadow is going the opposite direction.

Never mind, I can't get a bigger pic right now and I grow weary of the attempt.

Good points Hobie. The stronger light will throw a shadow that will drown out any shadow from lesser ligts. This is a fun topic.

Im absolutely fascinated by the number of members on this forum who arefooled by this photo. The other point that has struck home is that a number of themore prominent members have not yet given any opinion. This is an with a few extra's attached and a number of other items changed to make the thing look different. Whoever owns this must be having a great laugh at all the commotionthat this has stirred up. I never realized that we had so many experts in photography on the forum. Well im far from being an expert in any field, but i can state without fear of contradiction that the new 2006 will not have all or indeed any of these changes. For starters Honda would never dream of fitting a coloured seat on any m/cycle, not to mention things like GPS.

But it's good fun, and I can only dream of ever owning an

51/8 in favour of it being genuine Redwing. Over 900 hits on this and the other thread about it.
I have to stick my neck out and disagree with you on this one Redwing. I think it's genuine as well.

It is absolutely an impostor, but fun to look at. It is Photoshop'ed all the way.
