That photo has been around for years. You just discovered it?

I'm sure the guy was trying to come up with something so outrageous, that people would be posting photos of it over and over and over for many, many years.

I think the rider is concerned with making a nicer 'splat' up against the building or transport he eventually will hit.

It's just to make people look at him and talk about the bike. Obviously it works.

Remember that episode of The Brady Bunch where Bobby felt like he was too short, so he spent a bunch of time hanging from the swing set?

Well, this guy has a small dick. That's why.

This is to keep him from going over the handlebars if he uses the front brake.
