I know that guy. The picture is taken in Canberra, the capital city of Australia, and he was a member of the same motorcycle club that I was when I lived there about 3 years ago.
Australia Post launched a huge investigation when the picture was first published in the motorcycle press here, and, despite everyone's attempts to keep quiet, the culprit was eventually found out and he lost his job.
The picture is not faked. It actually happened just as you see it here.
