Pic of the Week: Suzuki GSX-R750

A rare venture onto two wheels for POTW



Our bike-based alter-ego, PH2, has made a grab at POTW today, taking us a little off-piste with a journey into the lesser-known world of vehicles with two wheels rather than four.

But we reckon that even if you're not a particular fan of bikes, this image of the latest Suzuki GSX-R750 with a good bit of on-track lean on (and taken from our PH2 man Jon Urry's recent review of Suzuki's famous 750) should float the boat of most petrolheads.

It certainly looks more dramatic than the equivalent cornering/tracking shot of a car would be, taken on the same stretch of tarmac...

The problem with these, and I'm not being an arse here, is that they're all plastered with 'Pistonheads'. Take after Jalopnik and just put up high res pics and leave the branding.

Nice shot btw.

It's hardly plastered, the diagonal isn't on the actual wall paper.
It's just the logo in the top right.

That actual desktop shot you have will only have the light logo on the top right. The large diagonal logo on the top left is purely shown in these articles.


edit; see....

I'm a fan of 2 and 4 wheels and I'm delighted to see a 2 wheeled POTW!

Nice picture. Might have scored a bit higher if the rider had his knee down. Keep practising Jon, you'll get there eventually;-)

In fairness, he'll be mad we didn't choose a wheelie or knee down picture.

2048x1536 not HD enough?

I'm not massively into motorised bicycles, but that's a great picture.

Resizing the image gives 1920*1440, it's the ratio that doesn't work for standard (widescreen) HD (1920*1080)

There are several POTW I would love bas backgrounds, but never use.

Crop it ya lazy git. They can't cater for all resolutions. Or just have the screen center it, or something.
