Royal Enfield for sale; would you use this picture?

What is the seller trying to tell us?
A 2008 Royal Enfield Bullet in "very good condition" is advertised on CraigsList in Texas with a photograph of the motorcycle next to a portable toilet.

Reverse psychology no doubt plays a role in advertising, but I have trouble seeing the appeal of this pitch.

Two trash bins are in the picture as well, in the background, and a slice of what looks to be a very pretty river or lake.

The nicest thing in the photo is the Royal Enfield. Notice how shiny and clean it is. Smells better, too, probably.

Perhaps that is the message. I hope so.

  1. I see nothing untoward . The Union Flag is flying above the Maple Leaf . As it should by jove !
    Perhaps the fellow had a memorable bowel movement and wished to commemorate the fact . One wonders about Americans at times , indeed one does .
