My guess: Honda 919 (with a different tank paint job)

well the photo I think was taken from a Chevy Colorado quad cab. The bike looks like a backward v max seat & the car a Honda or Acura. Terrain flat season spring weather rain.

Looks like the 4th of July up here, I recognize those trees. I think the plates are Alaska though. .........

I actually know the owner of the car/bike. At least he emails me once in a while.

The owner has extensively modified the 919 and drag races it. He lives in Alaska.

He got the car for free.

Alaska car plates are yellow on the bottom and midnight blue on top with small stars, the bike plates are plain yellow. We see them all the time here. The picture looks like it's on the west side of Snoqualmie Pass on I-90, however it could be anywhere in Washington or Alaska.
