All these motorcycles have an "N" number that's the place where the Dutch rally is this year.

I suspect he is posed. Is that a left foot on the road we can see?

The line certainly doesn't look right. At first glance I thought he was washing out the front and about to deck it !

Hello Chris, yes I also think that it is a model G.
One odd thing is the right hand side ' Ariel' decal on the left hand side, or is this as it should be?

I don't know I was more interested in the headlamp used as searchlight.

Hi Chris, caption with this picture on that website says it was involved in a accident.
7 august 1937 on the Molengraafsestraat, I think in Breda.
