That's gotta be photoshopped dude! Haha! I've seen similar contraptions overseas but they had stabilizing strut-type attachments with wheels on them. I'd like to see someone balance all these people from a standstill!

It's funny but I'd say that has to be Photoshopped. The shadow profile on the road is only that of the bike and rider. The rest of the contraption is not throwing a shadow...

We need to find out where that dude buys tires, wheel bearings, etc. That bike is one heavy duty machine!

If the shadow is from the bike only then the sun is on both sides. All I noticed was no boots, no helmet and shorts. I wonder how often he has road rash.
