The shoes are real, not photoshopped, and just relax man. This bike was stolen from me about a year ago, so I do understand how it feels, it sucks. The picture was meant to be "street" "gangster" whatever not to tell peeps I am stealing your motorcycles.
I did think the image was funny but what is even funnier is how a simple pose, or prop can cause such an emotional feeling. It makes me feel successful at what I do, so it doesnt offend me, it just makes me that much more confident that guys like you are influenced by a simple image we put together in about 5 minutes.
